ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
If your playing on the lost island you can find some in the swamp
More Dung Beetle Encountering Tips
Probably the most powerful creature on the whole island
A good Southern Cave Set
Longneck Rifle: Keep enough ammo and durability to one shot low lvl Spiders and boas
The Direbear hunt Sword: Obtained through the Direbear Hunt Quest on Mobile, very powerful in a close range setting
Whatever you loot from the corpses: You can find weapons in these guys(somehow), which can keep you going for longer
Pike: If you absolutely run out of options, but don’t want torpor inflicted, this is a good option to keep them away, looted spears work well too.
Spoiled Meat: If you happen to knock out a creature there or stumble across a dung beetle, don’t hesitate to tame one so your life is easier.
Jerky or Cooked Meat: Cooked food restores a little hp every time it’s consumed, and jerky lasts longer(Cooked meat can also turn into spoiled meat)
Water containers: There is little accessible water in caves, so bringing some will be your best ally.
An Aggro Immune Mount: Some say that a cave tamed Araneo on mobile has the immunity to aggro like itchys, just so long as they fit through the entrance
A torch: So you can see without the light of crystals
Strong Armor: While most creatures in the south cave do little to no damage, the centipede is one of the toughest and deadly foes in there.
Up if you found the set helpful
On the island, I think the easiest place to find them is in the lower south cave. Go in with a longneck or a shotgun, turn left at the first intersection, kill the boas and spiders I. The first chamber, near the end of it there’s usually 1-3 beetles. Tame, and carry back to base w/ Petra. Easy fertilizer.
If you wish to find these, look hard in the south cave. There is bound to be one there
They can destroy wooden structures. I was in the east underwatercave for deep SEA loot and Had a 1x1 wooden House with a bed. I had No weapon and so a lvl 200 dungbeatle Killed me nearly, Destroyer my bed and my foundation not what i expected.
these are amazing, i made an island for them, they love it!!
I have only seen these in caves so far but they are useful for fertiliser when you are growing crops and Plants Species X etc.
The dung beetles are often found in caves and around swamps
On Ragnorak you can find them in the volcano biome beside the highlands . Very easy tame just use a couple of spoiled meats or dung. They have to be on wander to produce fertilizer, i keep mine in my greenhouse.
