This boss isn't really that hard. You can go in with assault rifles and riot gear and beat the boss with 7-10 players. Bring a ton of bullets and healing brews because the defense units do a good amount of damage. Rockets will take out the overseer super quick. Also bring fur gear because it gets cold in some parts. 3 sets of everything are a must in fighting the boss and units. Thank you.
Definitely my favourite and most memorable battle, I used a dire wolf pack of about 6, a Rex, two spinos, three theriz, an argent, and I rode on the back of a Yuty. Did this in single player without the help of my Ark buddies 👍🏻 These were all very high level dinos btw
This is a tutorial on both getting through the tek cave and Overseer fight:
Get a tek chestpiece, either a tek rifle and/or decent pump shotgun along with a fair bit of ammo for your choice(s) and a chestplate with the glider suit attached. Grab some medbrews and a bit of element, fill in the remaining armor pieces and your trophies to open the tek cave. You’ll also want an otter to put your kit onto in case ascension decides to delete your stuff and for insulation since the arena is rather cold.
Open the tek cave, glide down the whole thing with your glider suit. Don’t land anywhere but the cold area at the back of the cave or you’ll get killed by the insane level creatures. Just fly on down into the cold area and run to the teleporter thing at the end, wait out the timer and relax and bask in your defeat of the tek cave with nothing but you and your otter!
However, the challenge at hand isn’t over yet. Put on your tek chestpiece and go into the arena to start the fight. There will be a hole in the ceiling just in front of where the overseer spawned. Jump up into the hole and land atop the pointy rock. This is the hole where the Overseer nearly cannot get you. Its minions, however, still can. You will need to occasionally shoot the little drones that decide to bother you. Avoid the Overseer’s laser beam attack when necessary and shoot the Overseer until it transforms. If it’s the spider or dragon, just keep shooting it. If it’s the megapithicus, shoot it, but be aware that the rock throw is actually capable of reaching your ledge and will probably kill you if it hits. Just boost up when it gets thrown and you should be fine. Repeat steps until dead. Just toss your kit onto your otter (or if playing pvp, you might want to risk it and just put your otter in a cryopod because someone outside the tek cave could steal your kit.) If you put your kit on your otter, it will be waiting for you at the entrance to the tek cave.
And there you go, you can now kill the overseer the easy peasy cheesy way!
I’m gonna let you in on a little secret; this boss wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the tek cave! If you don’t know what the tek cave is, allow me to educate you! The tek cave is a cave accessible with tribute items (on gamma, it’s the three guardian trophies, on any other difficulty, it’s those plus some other trophies like alpha tuso eyes) and is found in the crater of the volcano. The levels of the creatures in this cave are really high, like, 710+ high! The creatures in the tek cave include arthropleura, purlovia, microraptor, giganotosaurus (with the exception of gamma) and more! Sounds hard, right? Well, not if you’re resourceful! This cave also has a bunch of lava, once you’ve got a pool of lava between you and an enemy, Fire a bullet and the creature usually swims right in! The lava can also be dangerous, easily weakening your Overseer army which is no fun. I recommend putting all your dinos in a massive Congo line! Get on top of your first dino, whistle follow one to the second, get on the second and whistle follow one to number three. Repeat that until all the dinos just kinda follow each other like a duck and babies!
And there you have it! The tek cave but just a little bit easier! Good luck, hope this helps!
This boss is the strongest boss on the island map especially in alpha difficulty, so you are going to have to be equipped very well. You will have to gain a bunch of mutations on your dinosaurs, so they can survive this battle this is coming. This battle is the final battle you will do on the island, before ascending from it. The overseer cave (sometimes referred to as the tek cave) is at the volcano.
Tek Terminal: 428390
It will be very hot in the first part of the cave, but very cold in the actual arena itself, so you are going to bring two types of armoured gear (prefably the ghille armour and the fur armour) and two types of soup (calien soup for hot temperatures and fria curry for cold temperatures) in order to work with the temperature.
To play in beta difficulty, you need to have:
1 Alpha Carno Arm
1 Alpha Raptor claw
1 Alpha Tyrannosaur tooth
1 Beta Broodmother Trophy
1 Beta Dragon Trophy
1 Beta Megapithecus Trophy
In the cave, there are powerful a$$ dinos that are inside the cave. The creatures there have a level of 500 on just difficulty one. But just as if the heat and the high level dinos aren't enough, you also have to be cautious of wild gigas roaming the area too. This is why it is important to bring dinos with good mutation stats to this very dangerous place. Use every gun, weapons and brimstone you and your tames have to fire on those creatures, especially the gigas. Remember to take it SLOW though, no rush.
Once you have teleported to the arena, you start fighting the boss. The boss will spawn plenty of attack drones and defence units. Try focus on killing these first, so that they don't overwhelm you and start killing everything. The overseer starts in its own form which looks like that specimen implant in your arm, and has a shield around it, meaning that it can't be attacked. It is also able to shapeshift into any of the three bosses you have defeated. The megapitchecus, the broodmother and the dragon. When it shapeshifts to the dragon, you will need to use the same method you did when you defeated the dragon. It will then return back to its original form and project a shield around itself. It will then start shooting lasers across the arena. You do not want this laser to hit you. The lasers will dismount you off of your dino if it hits you, and prevent you from moving for a few seconds, so you need to hide behind pillars to avoid this. The boss does this attack, every time you defeat one of its forms.
Survive the attack, use your yutyrannus to buff everything and apart from that, I wish you good luck on beating it! 👍
