ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
To get a leech off of you, you need to create a fire and jump on the fire for a few seconds until the leech dies
If you're looking for leeches (to get leech blood) just listen, cuz they make a sound in the water when you're close to them (it sounds similar to someone making but bubbles inside the water). Everytime I go to the swamp i always find them quick and easy due to this and I hope this help other people too.
On the island there’s many outbreaks of “swamp fever”. You get Swamp fever by getting a infected leech stuck on you and TRANSFERRING NO longer Gets RID of SWAMP FEVER.
FOR MOBILE PLAYERS ONLY:
These are in the swamp, they’re just super rare and you rarely will find them. They must be removed via campfire or cooking pot, same thing applies to dinos that aren’t native to the swamp.
FOR MOBILE PLAYERS ONLY:
I read on the ark wiki that they dont latch onto tames native to the swamp
to the guy who asked howto paint dinos in ark mobile go yo mortar and pestle and crush some ancient amber it will give potent dust colour the potent dust put in creatures inventory and boom its tainbow
Fire doesn’t work to remove leeches anymore. Go to a tamed animal, open command wheel and click “hold to remove leech.”
If you have scuba equipped the leach will come off in a few seconds I think it has to be a full set
Can’t use a campfire to get off go to a Dino and hold whatever your consoles menu button to get behaviour and stuff and it will be there
Don't try to fight them in melee use guns or dinos
They can be only be tamed in a fish basket
The leech page is getting bigger 😃😀😃😀😄😀😄😀😄😀😄😀
If you find one and it gives a sickness DONT SOREAD IT make a lesser antidote just kill it get the blood get rare flowers and mushrooms if you spread it your a real douche. And you’ll get targeted on PVP
I tamed one and named it Clingy Clive... my sister got one and named it Grabby Geraldine. I almost got another and called it Dontcallmeoneofyourterriblenames.
If there is one on your screen in x box and no matter what you do it doesn’t come off check all your tames if a leech is latched on one of your tames it will show up on your screen.
My best friend used my quetz over a swamp and she said it got a leech while i was offline and when i joined it was dead since she didn't know how to remove a leech now i need to tame a new quetz plus i lost the mastercraft saddle :')
Always remove leeches before going offline if especially if ur playing in multiplayer. Remove them by standing on campfires for some seconds. You might not want ur tame to end up like my quetz did.
