If you happen to find a Reaper Queen in the rad zone, I recommend not going much further or you will find yourself overwhelmed very quickly! It seems once you run over their spawns they spawn more often, so when you’ve fought a few queens and think to yourself “my health is low, I need to leave” there is very likely more queens waiting for you on the way out!
PLANT SPECIES Z IS YOUR FRIEND: heals your mount super fast and provides a charge light just by standing next to it!
An easy way to feed your reaper is to have 2 full Fridges of cooked meat or more in your inventory and have the baby kill you and bam you don't need to constantly feed it upvote so the others can see or something
There's a glitch about half way through the baby stage where the baby attacks you regardless of the gland buff this drains it's stamina which will drain it's food to recharge as long as your baby has food in it's inventory it wont starve because of this even if it's food hits zero just feed it like normal and keep a close eye on it
If you encounter a reaper queen she will have 45,000 health and if you come across a reaper king they will have much much lower. For both of them make sure you have a light pet and a decent hp Dino and melee. Surface reapers explain their self but their are many and they overwhelm you so be careful. Happy hunting survivors and don’t forget to be adventurous.
If you plan on battling reaper king, have a decent mount that can tank and possess an AoE attack/push back attack. Killed one on a Spino in 3 minute. Smaller animal will get killed easily. Difficulty 6 server setting for reference and vanilla stat modifier.
Lure a Reaper Queen into a metal trap WITH A COVERED FLOOR SO IT CANNOT ESCAPE AFTERWARDS, that way multiple people can get pregnant from 1 good Queen. These other beach noob comments forget that detail. Using glowpets to weaken her, damage her until she reaches 2k hp, preferably with a Megalo or Reaper, but Drakes work too. Turn the lights off and she'll glow pink, showing she's ready. Now dismount and stay just out of reach until she leans forward, at which point she'll try to pick you up and BAM you're pregnant. There's a Drake trick that works without dismounting, look it up. Use the next 12 hours to trap more Queens, finishing them off with a shotgun to get the most exp for the baby. Once time is up, encumber yourself with meat in a small room and let the baby kill you when it hatches. It'll take all the meat regardless of weight and you won't have to handfeed it at all, pheromones are worthless lmao. Use a crab to pick the baby up and it'll stay there until it hits juvenile.
When u find a reaper if u want a easy way to get pregnant make a trap with foundations and pillars after you get it under 2k hp it will glow pink if you use a drake or megalosaurus then hop off out of biting distance of the reaper qait about 2-3 seconds until its looking at you and hop back on your tame and it will grab you and impregnate you since there are foundations the reaper will not bury itself this can be used to get multiple for your tribe or anyone after impregnation is done take a gun preferably a shotgun turn your light on and kill it with a gun or crossbow or whatever your using this will give your character the levels for the reaper caps at 75 btw you have to kill it with your character if you use a tame you will not get very much exp.
I suppose it's a glitch, because Wiki says the opposite, but apparently can get 50% cowardce from one roar of Yuti. Well, Ark, you are glitched for good! Otherwise how could you explain that my friendly meeting with Yuti on Extinction ended up almost scaring the new baby Reaper out of my own?
P.s: never got it again for some reason. Another reason to believe that it was a glitch.
