The Pachyrhinosaurus (PAK-ee-rye-no-SAWR-us) is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved.

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
Pachyrhinosaurus mitisaura is a medium-sized herbivore, found almost everywhere but the island’s mountains. It is generally calm, and ignores all other nearby creatures unless it is attacked, at which point it usually tries to flee.
Domesticated
Pachyrhinosaurus is an excellent starting mount for anyone new to taming. It is fairly easy to train, can carry enough to be a simple pack-animal, and is not as deadly as some of the larger herbivores. Additionally, Pachyrhinosaurus can release its unique chemical on command to protect itself and its rider from nearby predators, or draw attention if desired, making it a potential life saver in a pinch.
Known Information
Of the island’s varied creatures, Pachyrhinosaurus may possess among the most unique survival skills. When threatened, its massive nasal boss releases a chemical into the air that calms other nearby creatures, making them less likely to attack it. Affected creatures are sometimes hungry enough to ignore the effect and humans seem immune to it. Conversely, it can seemingly invert this phenomenon at will and induce creatures to become more aggressive towards it!
~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Pachyrhinosaurus is a peaceful herbivore that is not aggressive and will spend its time grazing, ignoring survivors and other passive animals. Similarly to the Triceratops, the Pachyrhinosaurus will charge if a survivor or tamed animal attacks it. Additionally, it will release a chemical that makes nearby passive animals aggressive to its attacker. However, if the battle seems fruitless for the Pachyrhinosaurus, it will flee and release a different chemical to try and pacify its attackers, allowing the dinosaur to escape and recover. This chemical will not work on humans and some huge predators such as Tyrannosaurus.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Like its larger relative the Triceratops, the Pachyrhinosaurus is a burly quadrupedal herbivore with an impressive frill. Unlike the Triceratops, Pachyrhinosaurus has a bony growth called a boss where the trike has its nasal horn. The animal still displays a multitude of horns and spikes on its frill, though none as large or as fearsome-looking as those on a Triceratops.




Color Scheme and Regions

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

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Pachyrhinosaurus.

General[edit | edit source]

The Pachyrhinosaurus's head acts as a shield, much like the Pachy. It has a damage multiplier of 0.15 for head and jaw.

The Pachyrhinosaurus takes more narcotics than most herbivores to keep down. It also has a unique diet, preferring bug repellent to vegetables or berries.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Pachyrhinosaurus is not immediately aggressive, so use crossbows or bows as they have shorter reload speed than a longneck rifle.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The Pachyrhinosaurus can trigger others to attack, making engagement dangerous.

It's nasal spray will also instantly drain the stamina of you or your mount, leaving you vulnerable to aggressive dinos such as raptors or carnos.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

  • Two Players transport: It can carry 2 players in its saddle (Level Speed and Stamina).
  • Support:
    • Calm essence: Its alternate attack (Right Mousebutton) expels a calming essence that makes you invisible for most hostile dinos (Doesn`t work with bigger ones like Rex or Giganotosaurus).
    • Raging essence: Pressing C will expel a raging essence that makes a variety of dinos attack you, such as Dodos or Parasaurs. Some herbivores like Carbonemys and Triceratops may still ignore you though.

Level Health, Melee Damage, Speed, and some Stamina.

  • Transport: The Pachyrhinosaurus has a good carry capacity and is ideal for local transport. Its calming essence can also be useful if you run into small to medium sized carnivores such as Raptors and you don't have a convoy or simply don't want to fight (Level Weight, Speed, and Stamina).

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • Dossier revealed on 09/24/15 on Steam.[2]
  • Its full name means "Thick-nosed lizard",
  • Pachyrhinosaurus is from the same family as Trike.png Triceratops.
  • Real Pachyrhinosaurus was approximately 8 meters long and weighed around four tons, with a pattern of horns much less elaborate than the one illustrated in the dossier. It also didn't release chemicals in self-defense.
  • The Pachyrhinosaurus can use its chemicals to make creatures that run attack you. Be careful!!
