Corrupted Creatures are a variant of normal Creatures corrupted by Element that are found on Extinction, the corruption enslaving their behavior into a "hive-mentality". Creatures that are corrupted are more powerful, extremely aggressive (regardless of their previous Temperament), and untameable. All Corrupted Creatures can destroy Tek-tier Structures and will attack the structure when in range.
Projectiles from corrupted creatures are tinted in purple, and if they are hit by ranged projectile, the hit marker will appear in purple, as opposed to normal/friendly hit marker which appears red/green/orange respectively.
All Corrupted Creatures take significantly less damage from Turrets.
|Heavy Auto Turret||10|

Dossier[edit | edit source]
Even at its most deadly, there's nothing as beautiful as nature. Yet by definition, that beauty only exists if nature is left to run its course, free from interference or invasion. Sadly, that's not what happened here. These poor creatures have been infected and twisted by an outside force.
I've seen how Element can alter the evolutionary trajectory of a species in small, indirect doses, but this goes far beyond that. The Element that grows within these animals has taken hold of their minds and driven them mad. They move as one, ravaging everything in their path, and often push themselves beyond their physical limits.
We've found they have a sixth sense for Element, and on occasion have used that to our advantage. Otherwise, they are an unfeeling, ravenous horde.
At my insistence, we've tried on several occasions to remove the corruption from these hapless beasts, but to no avail. Every time we have to fend them off, I feel a pang of guilt in my heart, but putting them down is the kindest thing we can do for them.
Note[edit | edit source]
- Corrupted Creatures will not attack wild Rex, Spino, Giga and other large carnivores.
- It may be worth noting that out of all the Corrupted Creatures, only the Corrupted Reaper King and Corrupted Giganotosaurus do not possess their usual traits from their uncorrupted variant.
- Corrupted Deathworm was formerly one of the Corrupted Creatures at the release of Extinction, but it was silently removed from the game at a later time for unknown reasons.
- While the shadow on the Dossier image appears what looked like a corrupted Brontosaurus, there is no such thing as Corrupted Brontosaurus that exists in-game.
- Beware when going into areas like the Wasteland or any other area that usually contains Corrupted Creatures, they will literally materialize out of thin air and attack.
- corrupted creatures act very similar to zombies in that they are infected and will mindlessly attack anything near them.
