Fire doesn’t work to remove leeches anymore. Go to a tamed animal, open command wheel and click “hold to remove leech.”
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
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.
No latch onto Beelzebufos
I read on the ark wiki that they dont latch onto tames native to the swamp
WATCH OUT THEY GO ON LAND AND WIGGLE
Hi guys i read on google that if there is a leech already hanging from your body you need a fire or cooking pot to remove ... hope this helps - T♡
If a leach is on one of your TAMES it will appear on your screen as though it's on you.
Walk up to your tame and hit Triangle(PS4 obvs) and it'll get rid.
