Location[edit | edit source]

The Broodmother, Megapithecus, and Dragon Arenas are located under each of the three Obelisks. To reach these locations, players must go to either a Beacon or Obelisk and place the required tribute items inside, then click on the Broodmother Portal.png Generate Broodmother Portal, Megapithecus Portal.png Generate Megapithecus Portal, or Dragon Portal.png Generate Dragon Portal items. At this point a portal will be opened to teleport nearby players and dinos into the arena.

The Overseer Arena is accessible by completing the Tek Cave in the Volcano's caldera and teleporting to the Observation Deck.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Arena Requirements[edit | edit source]

  • In order to be teleported into the arena AND out of the arena, you MUST be dismounted.
    • If you are on a dino when you get teleported in, you will simply not be teleported with your dinos.
    • If you are on a dino when you get teleported out, you will be instantly killed and permanently lose everything you had on your inventory.
    • If you are playing on Xbox and are on a dino when you get teleported you will still be teleported, but will not be riding the dino upon entering.
    • If you are playing on Xbox and exit the arena while on a dino you will not be killed, however your dino will gain a large amount of tapor.

Equipment and Structure Restrictions[edit | edit source]

  • No structures may be placed in the arenas. So avoid forming plans that revolve on building. If you attempt to place anything, the message "No ground or snap point available" will be displayed.
    • Grappling hooks may be taken into the arena, but once equipped in a crossbow they cannot be fired. (May be related to why Thylacoleo does not teleport into arena.) (Not tested on Manticore.)

Item Losses[edit | edit source]

  • You will lose summon items and dinos only upon running out of time or dying within the arena.

Multiples changes[edit | edit source]

  • Due to the harsh consequences of a failed boss fight (see bullet point above), it is extremely adviced to prepare before attempting a boss fight. Watching online videos of other ARK players completing the boss fight is a good way to elaborate your strategy in advance. However there has been a lot of changes to the Boss Arenas during the development of the game, so you should make sure you are watching videos recorded after the last patch changing Boss Arenas. Also Singleplayer bosses are weaker than Multiplayer bosses.
