If you see this thing. Do not think of attacking it. Run,run and R U N unless you have enough dinos to kill it. Literally the worst thing you can probably meet in Ark. Its mostly within the caves and if you see it you will recognise it from miles, a centipede with a metal eatting mouth literally ate my metal spear like a noodle for breakfast.
DO NOT ENGAGE OR YOU WILL DIE! I was hunting araneos when this thing came out of nowhere and three shot me! All my dimorphs were literally devoured when I came back. It is like centipedes in real life but instead of killing you slowly with poison it kills you with bites quickly. Do not equip anything lower than Chitin or you will get one shot. Make the up arrow green so people can know 🙏🏻
If you want to kill it, get a crossbow, but DON’T hit it with melee weapons. My sword broke in two swings! If you want to tame, get bug repellent or ghillie (or both) and feed spoiled meat. Also, don’t let it hit you, it broke me Mastercraft chitin armor in two-three hits. Hope this helps. Peace out ✌️
