ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
When I was still a noob on scorched, I was dying left right and centre- I got enough for a thatch foundation, placed it, died. Another thatch foundation, placed it died. You get the idea. Now, once I had my hut I also had enough xp to get a spear, so I did and I hunted a water jug bug, but dragged it into my house and shut the door. I examined it, and saw that I could drink water from it. I survived! I built up my hut more, and when that one ran out, I harvested the corpse and brought another dead one inside. I survived like this until finally I tamed a Morrellatops, and we hiked back and forth from a nearby lake I discovered while chasing my new friend. That is how I survived- use these guys, they’re lifesavers. Literally.
Also, just me or when I’m low level mainly oil ones spawn but when I’m high level only water ones spawn??? Maybe they just hate me
More Jug Bug Encountering Tips
Thirst is the reason from scorched earth why I kill every oil jug bug. The water ones are safe though
They are indeed on fjordur. Balheimer.
These are indeed found on Fjordur in the Volcano area. Dododex doesnt show, Up so they know!
Is it just me or has anyone else seen water jug bugs on Fjordur I thought that only oil ones spawned on Fjordur.
What I know about jug bugs:
• big behinds
• won’t attac at all
• blue= water
• red= oil
• can drink if ded or alive
• you can make it pee water in ur mouth
One of the weakest yet most valuable thing you’ll come across whilst exploring Scorched earth. Look for ones with a blue abdomen if in search of water and red ones if advanced and searching for oil. Usually found everywhere except up in the mountains were most of the dangerous carnivores live. Quite common to find throughout Scorched earth but easily startled if accessed.
When you are dying of thirst and you see a big beetle
Raptors are extremely good at killing these almost as if they were ment to because the jump attack if used near a jug bug will make it so the raptors jump on it and it can’t escape
Jug bugs are fast and hard to kill with no dino's cuz they fly really fast
