The Alpha Deathworm is one of the Alpha Predators in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is only available in Scorched Earth.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Once you are in its aggro range, it chases you until you get out range just like any other Deathworm. Also like other Deathworms, it can despawn while it is chasing you. If you want to prevent it from despawning, be sure to make it "pop" up every minute or less as they have a very very short despawn period. If it is not aggroed, the alpha will remain stationary just like normal Deathworms.

Iceworm Queen (Variant)[edit | edit source]

An ice-themed version of the Alpha Deathworm, found on Ragnarok, and the final boss of the Frozen Dungeon. It has a light blue color scheme with white appendages and grey claws.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Looks like the regular Deathworm, but far bigger!




Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Alpha Deathworm's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Alpha Deathworm. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Alpha Deathworm will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Alpha Deathworm's "head and sides" magenta.

Combat[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

The Alpha Deathworm can spawn anywhere in the dunes, but seem to be more common farther away from regular land. Search at night as the glow of the Alpha will be far easier to spot.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

I would not recommend fighting any Deathworm with a rock elemental because they do reduced damage to Deathworms while Deathworms do a significant amount of damage to them.

A perfect tamed Rex with at least 10k health and 400% damage can take one down albeit with very little health remaining (in my experience, I've lost 6k to 8k health). So it's best to have multiple perfect Rexes or a friend or two standing a good distance away hitting it with fire arrows.

Another way to kill it is to make it pop up with a fast Dino (a Rex can do this too) by running (or flying) directly at it then straight past it, hopping off, and hitting it with fire arrows when you're a good distance away. This works well enough because it stays up significantly longer than a regular Deathworm and it still gets hurt from fire damage while underground (the blood damage appears above its sand mound)

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Fire arrows

Level 100+ tamed Rex(es) with 10k health and 400% damage

Lightning Wyverns level 150 and more are also really effective

Dangers[edit | edit source]

This creature could attack you at any time and it is hard to tell where it is until it comes out of the ground. So always be prepared when they could strike. However, since it is alpha, it has that distinct red glow which makes it easier to find than a regular Deathworm. Even when it is under the sand, you can see the alpha aura rising above its location.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

  • The Alpha Deathworm has similar weaknesses to the normal Deathworm, such as using a Rock Elemental to tank its hits.
