Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

NoteHelena.png
Wild
Found primarily among the Island's mountain and tundra regions, Arctodus Dirus is an imposing creature. Like most of the creatures that inhabit this island's colder areas, it is a mammal, and this particular mammal is either at or near the top of that region's food chain.
Domesticated
Once tamed, the Direbear is a strong and reliable mount. It can carry vast quantities of goods, and can sprint for extremely long, nearly infinite periods. It is not the fastest creature from a hard stop, but after building up momentum, its sustained overland speed builds to among the best on the Island. Of course, being able to feed a Direbear both meat and plantlife makes keeping one fairly convenient regardless of the environment.
Known Information
Many on the Island have started calling it a Direbear, a name which is appropriate both due to its enormity and its territorial nature. The Direbear ignores most non-hostile creatures while going about its daily routine of scavenging for meat and edible plantlife... ... That is, until intruders enter the territory it considers its own, at which point it viciously attacks. Most often, it is smartest to just run from an angry Direbear.
~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Direbear is an omnivore, meaning it can eat both berries and meat. It is very territorial and will attack if not given enough space. It possesses a charging mechanic similar to that of the Pachy or Woolly Rhino. It can maneuver at high speeds, and takes a while to actually lose stamina by a significant amount. It possesses a secondary swipe attack that can be used to gather berries and pluck out meat from its target. This swipe additionally does more damage than normal, but stops movement. The Direbear can also stand on its hind legs (crouching, default C).

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Direbear is never a welcome sight for survivors in the frozen regions of the ARK. Resembling a grizzly bear in appearance, the Direbear is distinguishable by its shorter snout, earning it the nickname "Short-Faced Bear". Like other bears, they are capable of standing on their hind legs, but only to intimidate those that enter its territory. The beast is also surprisingly swift for its hulking build.




Color Scheme and Regions

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

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]

The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.

Preferred Food[edit | edit source]

The Direbear is an omnivore.


KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Any taming strategy will work. Taming pens, picking up, standing on rocks will do. Just make sure not to be on the low ground, as its high base damage will make short work of your character.
  • Building a wall or platform to shoot from without being hit from the Dire Bear is one way to ensure you're able to time your narcotic shots properly, which is very important since the Direbear has very little health compared to torpor.
  • Be aware that the Direbear has very high torpor compared to their health. Monitoring the number of Tranquilizer Arrow.png Tranquilizer Arrows you use is very important in order to prevent accidentally killing the Direbear. For instance, levels higher than 16 appear to be nearly impossible to tranquilize with arrows (a Mastercraft Crossbow.png Crossbow or above will work). Tranquilizer Dart.png Tranquilizer Darts are advised.

Combat[edit | edit source]

Can be stuck between trees or rocks, keep a distance and move in circles, don't run straight.

General[edit | edit source]

The Direbear is a strong, giant creature that is territorial. It won't attack you, unless you get really close to it. Direbears gain speed the longer it runs, similar to a Woolly Rhinoceros.png Woolly Rhino but without the 10x damage increase and meter. Direbears don't seem to use this ability in the wild.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

If you want to fight then stand on high ground as the Direbear can and will kill you if it can reach you. If you don't want to fight and instead flee, running can be an option as they lose aggro easily.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Ranged weapons are recommended. Stay on high ground and shoot it from afar. Using melee weapons can be dangerous, but can be less dangerous when using high-tier armor and shields.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

They are decently fast and have a strong melee attack. Be careful engaging in a fight with one of these by yourself. When attempting to drop them in a pen with a Quetzal.png Quetzal, be wary-like the Sabertooth.png Sabertooth and the Direwolf Icon.png Direwolf, the Direbear can sometimes attack while being carried and will quickly deplete your Quetzal's health.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Their bulky body allows them to be easily shot from a distance.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

  • War Mount: Excellent damage and speed. The Direbears area of attack is huge, reaching all the way back to its hind legs and a good meter in front of it. It can use its primary attack at all running speeds, meaning chasing down prey is easy (Level Health, Melee Damage, and some speed), It is the strongest mount that allows you to wield weapons while riding it.
  • Gatherer: Very good for gatheringFiber.png Fiber and collecting meats. Not the best, but still gathers Berries.png Berries,Hide.png Hide and Chitin.png Chitin (Level Health, Melee Damage, and Weight).
  • All-Purpose Mount: The Direbear is a very versatile mount. It can sprint very fast and carry lots of stuff, while taking a long time to get tired. It can defend you when attacked, as it has a powerful primary attack and an obliterating secondary attack, with 65 damage. It can harvest food for itself and for you. For these reasons the Direbear is one of the most valuable mid to end game mount. Valuable mount/companion (Level Speed, Weight, and Melee Damage).
  • Travel: Very fast speed, when fully accelerated can be faster than a Procoptodon.png Procoptodon, possibly Gallimimus.png Gallimimus), tons of stamina and high weight make it capable of traveling and hauling goods. The momentum sprinting mechanic does not take movement speed into account (Level Speed and some Stamina and Weight as needed).
  • Transport: Very large carry weight. Can be upgraded even more to allow the bear to become a mobile storage unit (Level Speed, Weight, and some Stamina)
  • Companion: Similar to the Direwolf Icon.png Direwolf, having a Direbear follow you around the base and curl up with at night ensures you aren't lonely (Level Health and Weight)

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Direbear, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • The dossier was revealed on November 2, 2015[2]
  • The Direbear is from the genus Arctodus, which are a group of Short-Faced Bears. Arctodus contained species of Short-Faced Bears that are considered to be one of the biggest known terrestrial mammalian carnivores.
  • Arctodus stood about six feet tall on four legs, and eight feet on its hind legs, which were long and thin, making it the fastest genus of bear.
  • Arctodus was once nicknamed the Running Bear, as its long legs enabled it to run vast distances.
  • Although that the dossier says it is primarily found in mountains and tundras, the Direbear is so far known to only populates the Redwoods since the Redwoods were introduced into the game.
  • On the map The Center they also live in dens located in other biomes.
  • The Direbear may now get in AND out of the Central Cave.
  • The "crouch" key will make the Direbear stand up on its hind legs temporarily but this "attack" does no damage.
