ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
What is a reaper used for? reaper battling strategies in ARK: Survival Evolved.
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.
Fun facts about reapers!
-Reapers have a very high healthpool and damage,and also have an 80% natural armor. You do not need a saddle to ride them.
-To tame one, you must get pregnant from a reaper queen. It must be below 2000 health before it will grab and impregnate you.
-After you are impregnated, you can kill creature to increase the offspring's level. It caps out at an additional 75 level-ups, no matter the queen's level.
-Once the baby reaper bursts out of your chest, it will try to kill you. However, this can be avoided by eating a pheromone gland, which is obtained from dead reaper queens.
-These reapers aren't meant to be confused with surface reapers. Surface reapers do much more damage and have slightly less hp.
That's all! I hope this was helpful.
Here's how reapers work: Whenever they're at low health, they pick you up and shove their tail into you, injecting a symbiote into you. It lives in ur intestines until the time comes when it burrows out of your chest and runs away. Let's face it, it's the most unique way to tame a creature.
It is the second strongest Reaper ingame. Only thing being better is the Alpha Surface Reaper. Getting impregnated by a queen lvl 150 and getting all 75 lvls possible for it gives you anreaper baby born with 15-20k HP which after imprint almost 30k. Dmg gets over 300% and after imprint close to 400%. Lvled can be 40k HP and over 600% if not 700% easily. Its a beast, can charge jump like a crab, take it down there to the drake nests and you can farm eggs for days. But be aware that light makes him weaker aka he takes more dmg and deals less.
