The Allosaurus (AL-uh-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

Smaller but faster than Tyrannosaurus, larger but slower than Carnotaurus, Allosaurus therotribus is the island's resident pack-hunting theropod. While most aggressive theropods are relatively solitary creatures, Allosaurus lives in groups of 3. One Allosaurus is the alpha, while the others are its mates or a beta male.

Like humans find value in forming a tribe, the Allosaurus has evolved to hunt in packs. Its saw-shaped teeth leave its prey bleeding and maimed, making escape difficult.

Once an Allosaurus slows a creature with its cutting bite, the rest of its pack quickly closes in for the kill.

Domesticated

Not everyone thinks a tamed Allosaurus is ideal. Those who appreciate speed generally tame Carnotaurus, while those who value raw stopping power tame Tyrannosaurus.

However, riders of Allosaurus tend to respect the utility of its Alpha pack status, which along with its bleed-inducing attacks and relative mobility, can effectively turn the tide of a combined arms battle.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Allosaurus is an extremely aggressive and dangerous predator, even more so when accompanied by its ever-present pack mates. Approach with caution - you may not always have visual on its nearby allies when approaching a singular Allosaurus.

Pack[edit | edit source]

Allosaurus always spawn in packs of 3, but packs will merge if they encounter each other. As long as a pack has 3 or more Allosaurus in it, the Allosaurus with the highest level will receive a pack boost, which can be identified by a glowing red-orange aura, similar to that of an Alpha Rex.png Alpha Predator. The pack boost applies to both wild and tamed Allosaurus and provides the following benefits:

  • Increases damage done by 50%
  • Reduces damage taken by 25%
  • An extra attack (default Right Mousebutton, Xbox: LT, PS4: L2) that slows the target and does bleeding damage
  • The ability to roar while tamed and mounted (default C, Xbox: Right Stick, PS4: Right Stick) When the Alpha roars, the others in its pack will also roar.

These buffs only apply to the Allosaurus with the Alpha Boost. However, in larger packs, multiple Allosaurus can sometimes become the Alpha.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Allosaurus is similar in appearance to the Carnotaurus.png Carnotaurus and the Rex.png Rex, with a few key differences. The Allosaurus is larger than the Carnotaurus, with longer arms, scattered plates and osteoderms on its head and back, and crests above its eyes. The alpha Allosaurus can be easily identified by its glowing red-orange aura (although take care that you haven't actually spotted an Alpha Predator).




Color Scheme and Regions

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

Allosaurus

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.

Taming[edit | edit source]

For general infos about domesticating a wild creature see Taming.

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Allosaurus has high torpor, similar to a Rex.png Rex, but tames quickly once knocked unconscious. The best way to take on an Allosaurus is to single out a solitary animal from its pack. Be careful not to kill the others while taming it, though, because lone Allosaurus will run away in search of a new pack if the old one is killed off. To combat this, the target Allosaurus should be lured into an enclosure and properly secured before taking on the rest of its pack. This strategy, in particular, is useful if you want to tame the alpha Allosaurus, as separating and killing its pack mates will remove its Alpha buff, weakening it significantly. Be careful, as higher levels are easy to kill with Bows and Crossbows if you do not pause between shots. Taming more than one Allosaurus at once is risky.

Solo attempts require a very careful approach: not only is attacking a pack of Allosaurus by yourself unwise, but the areas where Allosaurus spawn are also likely to be crawling with plenty of other dangerous predators. The best way to do this is to position yourself on a tall rock, preferably landed on by a flyer, to protect you from their attacks. After an Allosaurus has been hit by your Tranquilizer Dart or Tranquilizer Arrow, it and the rest of its pack will become aggressive towards you. Continue shooting, making sure to aim for the head and pause between shots, especially when using a Crossbow. You should be sure to kill the other Allosaurus (as well as any nearby predators) while you are in relative safety. Once your target's torpor reaches a high enough level, it will turn and flee. Be wary, as they could either run off entirely or run around in circles. As long as the Allosaurus stays nearby, continue to shoot it from the safety of your rock. If it turns tail and flees out of range, you can either chase it down and shoot it from the back of a Quetzal.png Quetzal or run it down with an Argentavis.png Argentavis, landing each time you have an opportunity to shoot. Obviously, the latter option carries its own risks.

If you are able to isolate a high-level Allosaurus and remove the alpha status from it, you can ride on a burly mount that still allows the use of weapons, such as a Direbear.png Direbear or Griffin.png Griffin, then tank its damage while pelting it with tranq arrows/darts. A singular Allosaurus only hits as hard as a Carnotaurus.png Carnotaurus. Keep in mind that the Allosaurus will start running when its torpor gets high so it's advised to have a mount that can keep up.

Pachyrhinosaurus[edit | edit source]

The gas attack of the Pachyrhinosaurus.png Pachyrhinosaurus can make Allosaurus unable to sprint, making a knockout much easier.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Allosaurus.

General[edit | edit source]

Don't attempt to take out the pack leader first: take out the others and the leader will lose its Alpha boost. If the pack has 3 or more members, then killing the pack leader will just promote a different one to Alpha status until there are less than two left.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Taking on an entire pack of Allosaurus is unwise. It is best to attack them one at a time using ranged weapons. Another approach is to overwhelm them with superior numbers by leading a pack of your own into the fight- just be careful to not be singled out or get in the way of the alpha.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Strong melee damage and a devastating knockback effect means that ranged weapons are extremely helpful for taking on an Allosaurus.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

A single Allosaurus is dangerous; a pack of Allosaurus is lethal. The bleed effect inflicted by an alpha Allosaurus will ensure that survivors who manage to escape from a fight will continue taking damage, so it's best to cut your losses early if you think you might lose. Their jack-of-all-trades approach to speed and power along with their pack mentality makes most conflicts a losing fight from the get-go. Additionally, survivors need at least 158% Movement Speed (29 level-ups) to be able to outrun the Allosaurus.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Compared to similarly sized carnivores such as the Rex.png Rex, a single Allosaurus does not have a lot of health. The exception to this is the alpha Allosaurus, which takes 20% less damage, but that buff can be removed by killing its packmates.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

Travel[edit | edit source]

The vast majority of wild predators will leave the Allosaurus alone, which makes them great for travelling through dangerous terrain in relative peace. They also boast a decent movement speed and weight comparable to Trike.png Triceratops (Level Stamina and Weight). A high-level Allosaurus can also prove to be a very powerful creature, and combined with its speed, travel can be relatively safe as most threats will be manageable.

Hunting[edit | edit source]

The Allosaurus is an excellent mount for hunting, both on its own and with a pack. Their fast base speed allows them to maintain distance from most enemies, avoiding damage completely. It edges out other carnivores like Carnotaurus for top-tier hunters because of the constant knockback it deals with each attack. (level Health and Melee Damage).

  • Compared to a Rex, it deals less Damage per second, has less Health and a smaller Range of attack - but it does have a faster movement speed, and can deal more Damage when given the Alpha buff. That, when combined with its smaller size, makes Allosaurus more efficient when fighting in a group.
  • Compared to a Carnotaurus, it is completely superior. In spite of the Allosaurus' Dossier stating that the Carnotaurus is faster, in reality, the Allosaurus has a faster base movement speed. Additionally, while the base damage of the Carnotaurus is higher, its high attack speed allows the Allosaurus to deal more damage per second.
  • Compared to the Direwolf.png Direwolf, Allosaurus deal a similar amount of damage but have a much greater durability, especially with the Alpha boost (even though Direwolf.png Direwolves have a pack bonus that bolsters all that are in the pack, the Allosaurus has a much higher base health and the ability to utilize saddles. DPS discrepancies are made up for with the pack leader's gnash attack (Right Mousebutton, Xbox: LT, PS4: L2) when facing off against larger foes where this matters.) On the downside, Allosaurus are less agile than Direwolves, cannot jump, and are much more likely to get stuck on trees or other obstacles, though Allosaurus have a higher general sprinting speed. Finally, they spawn more rarely, in lower numbers and are more difficult to tame, so it will take more time to assemble a pack of any given size.

Raid Boss DPS[edit | edit source]

The Allosaurus's gore attack DOES NOT work on Overseer.png Bosses, as does no other status effects. However, Allosaurus are smaller and much faster than most high-end boss killing creatures, also bearing a fast breeding and cheap saddles. Together, these attributes make them ideal to complete the Manticore.png Manticore and decent fighting the Megapithecus.png Megapithecus (level up Melee Damage.)

Additional Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Allosaurus dossier was revealed on August 26, 2015 [2]
  • Sometimes when there is four or more Allosaurus in a pack, more than one Allosaurus receives an Alpha boost.
  • Despite the dossier stating it is slower than the Carnotaurus, the Allosaurus actually has a faster sprint. It does, however, lose stamina faster than the Carnotaurus does.
  • Whether it is intentional or not, it is sometimes possible for the Alpha boost to be given to the highest level Allosaurus in a pair.
  • Now Allosaurus can be carried by Wyvern.png Wyvern and Quetzal.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • The Allosaurus has a different roar in its spotlight trailer than in the game. This is due to a sound change after the initial release.
  • The scientific name of Allosaurus therotribus means: 'Different lizard' 'Beast tribe'.
