ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
What’s that rumbling underneath the desert sand? A death worm and if your I’ll prepared your probably dead! So let’s talk about them!
Appearance: Mud brown exoskeleton, with 2 legs on each side of the segmented exoskeleton, it’s face is similar to that of stag Beatles’ mandibles, with large legs dangling underneath them.
Where would you find one?: [MAJOR WARNING: these are extremely dangerous if you aren’t prepared] To find one simply traverse the border of scorched earth.
What do they do?: In lore, they were meant to terminate ANY survivors that try to exit the border, and they do this very efficiently. This is do to their massive health pool, their intimidating size, and the ability to come out of nowhere if your not paying attention. (So basically they’re the Gandalf’s of arks border: “you. SHALL-NOT! PASS!!!”)
Is there a reason to come face to face with one?: If your a low level… definitely not. If your a high level survivor with a fully imprinted tank of a tame, like a wyvern. Then yes there is a reason for killing them. Reason number 1 They are the only source of death worm horns (I know ironic right?). Reason number 2: The XP you gain when killing one.
Of course there’s also reasons not to mess with one: Their massive health pool. On top of being the equivalent to a reaper king Giga hybrid, it’s capable of taking huge chunks of health from your tame. If you run into one on accident without a tame, run while you still can or you can consider your self all sorts of dead.
*Deathworm horns can be used to quickly tame a mantis
*Deathworms can ONLY traverse terrain while underground, while underground they sacrifice the ability to attack you, the same goes for you attacking it.
*deathworms can be detected by the bump of moving sand towards its target, they only attack survivors.
*When deathworms can’t reach the target, it has to go underground to get closer, before then being able to hit the target.
*Deathworms are around 1/4 taller than a giganotasaurus
Thanks for reading!
It’s favorite food is force tame
Get a few hoverskifts
Paint all but one black
Have your friends chase you with them
Fly right over an alpha one and have it destroy them
There you go you’ve re-enacted star wars
Why is no one talking about using a megatherium to kill these things? Just kill a quick scorpion to enter rage mode and destroy the deathworms
I watched a deathworm destroy my adobe structure because there was a dungbeetle inside.
How to kill this demon
Step 1: you don’t it kills you
Step 2: except your fate
I led a deathworm into a triple row of metal spike walls and it rose up in the middle of the spikes and ate me.
I did it for science.
Hit it until it dies and you will succeed every time
Ragnarock - Go into ice cave and kill the weak deathworms there. Use a good shield to block their attacks and melee them with a sword, easy quick kills because they have so little health and they drop the same loot as a regular deathworm. Make sure to wear warm cloths.
For those wondering
You can find these demons in an ice cave on Ragnarok. I do not recommend going unprepared-
In order to fight death worms, get a rex with around 10k health and 200% melee damage. This lets you tank it while dealing loads of damage.
The quickest way to kill this thing is a flamethrower c4 high level lightning wyvern and a dodo level 1 with c4 on it of course
My Friend: What Happened?
Me: I DO NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
My Friend: Oh Did All Of Your Tames Get Killed By That Deathworm Again?
