Dangers[edit | edit source]
- Tight Corridors which can make fights requiring range a huge problem. Especially dangerous with Megalosaurus around the corner when using splash damage weapons.
- Multiple paths that loop back together may cause some players to get lost
- Large amount of piranha in the water section which are difficult to see before being in the water, do not enter water without a strong mount.
- Arthropluera acid attack will break Primitive Flak Armor in 1 - 2 hits.
- Megalosaurus become active here at night and are fierce opponents with devastating attacks. During the day they are slower and weaker than they are at night, but running into one is still an unpleasant experience.
Recommended Equipment[edit | edit source]
- Chitin Armor or better
- Crossbow and Grappling Hooks
- Cooked Meat
- Medical Brew
- Stimberry or Stimulant
- Bug Repellant
Creatures[edit | edit source]
Compatible Tamed Creatures[edit | edit source]

- Not Recommended: Can Get Stuck/Unable to Leave Cave
|Argentavis||Not Recommended|| Unofficial/
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Probably the easiest cave on The Island. Many Creatures can fit inside effortlessly.
- There is an underwater segment in the artifact room that is NOT necessary to obtain the artifact.
- There is a secret exit that will take you from the Artifact to the surface: if you swim to the very bottom of the pool of water surrounding the artifact itself, you and any dinos will be teleported out of the cave. Be prepared for the possibility of being teleported on top of hostile dinos, however.
- Central Cave is also referred to as "Chitin Cave" because of how easy it is to obtain chitin while riding on a Sabertooth, Direwolf or Raptor.
- This cave also contains two dossier Explorer notes: The Megalodon and Araneo.
- This cave is a common place for Megalosaurus spawns, making it a prime destination if you wish to tame these animals.
- Due to tight spaces, fighting on foot is very troublesome. Using Grenades, Shotguns or other similar weapons to fight around corners is a good idea. But if you disturb a Megalosaurus in the process, you and your mounts may be in grave danger.
