Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Alpha Tusoteuthis's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Alpha Tusoteuthis. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Alpha Tusoteuthis 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 Tusoteuthis's "body highlights" magenta.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Alpha Tusoteuthis.

General[edit | edit source]

Very dangerous and should avoid until you have end game items and high leveled mounts

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Use a high tier crossbow or multiple low end ones to shoot it while mounted. When it starts to flee drive your mount into it and start attacking don't give it a chance to heal or you will die, attack with the mount and crossbow if it gets too far away.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Crossbow, combat marine animal.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

It hits twice as hard as a normal Tusoteuthis, is extremely fast, and it can grab any creature except a Giganotosaurus and crush it to death.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Attacks directed at its beak will inflict 3x damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Little killing info: Killed one lvl 15 on OfficalServer. We took it down with 2 normal Tusoteuthis, lvl 203 and 168. Just took about 30 seconds.

Can grab you and drop you off outside world, be aware of this and stay away from the sea bed / world border!

It is actually possible to defeat an Alpha Tusoteuthis with a singular Plesiosaur equipped with a platform saddle (basic saddle untested,) even one of a lower level but high melee damage is recommended. Having additional tames/players is NOT recommended due to the targeting behavior of the Tusoteuthis. Unlike most other water mounts the attack of the Plesiosaur can still hit the alpha after it has grabbed you. The method is rather simple; lure the alpha to an open area and clear out other nuisances if possible, especially Cnidaria. Once the Tusoteuthis is in range it will attempt to grab you. Do not attempt to dodge the grab, let it do so. Once it has a hold of you start attacking the Tusoteuthis. As you start to inflict damage the Tusoteuthis will release you but there is an unusual catch; it will release you inside of its hitbox and trap itself upon your hitbox. This allows you to just attack it and wear it down without it being able to retaliate. Keep in mind that it can get free at random times or you may still be within its attack hitbox. If this happens simply move to release the Tusoteuthis and try again. Once it gets to critical health it will start spewing ink. At this point it's just a case of killing it or chasing it down if it gets free. The ink will drain stamina and leave you essentially blinded at times so keep a close eye on it if possible. This tactic can also work on regular Tusoteuthis as well.
