The Overseer is the End Game Boss in ARK: Survival Evolved and has two types of minions: the Attack Drones and the Defense Units.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Is aggressive and will attack on sight.

Changes form periodically to one of the three bosses, the Megapithecus, the Dragon or Broodmother, guaranteed to happen for the each time it loses 25% health.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

It is reminiscent of the specimen implant, having the characteristic shape of a diamond. When transformed into the Ultimate Lifeforms and summoning Defense Units it takes the form of a mass of hexagonal prisms, and will shine the corresponding color of the difficulty (red for Alpha, blue for Beta, and green for Gamma).

Background[edit | edit source]

It is the AI that oversees the experiments of an ARK Station and ultimately decides who may continue to ascend higher in the evolutionary chain and who will be terminated.

Location[edit | edit source]

The Overseer can only be found in the Overseer Arena accessible by completing the Tek Cave and teleporting to the Observation Deck.

Tribute Requirements[edit | edit source]

The following items are needed to open the Tek Cave entrance. These items are not consumed in the process:

Item Required Gamma Beta Alpha
Player Level 60 80 100
Gamma Broodmother Trophy 1
Gamma Megapithecus Trophy 1
Gamma Dragon Trophy 1
Beta Broodmother Trophy 1
Beta Megapithecus Trophy 1
Beta Dragon Trophy 1
Alpha Broodmother Trophy 1
Alpha Megapithecus Trophy 1
Alpha Dragon Trophy 1
Alpha Raptor Claw 1 1
Alpha Carnotaurus Arm 1 1
Alpha Tyrannosaur Tooth 1 1
Alpha Megalodon Fin 1
Alpha Mosasaur Tooth 1
Alpha Tusoteuthis Eye 1
Alpha Leedsichthys Blubber 1

It is also worth noting that the greater difficulty trophies can be used to open the Tek Cave entrance at lower difficulties. (i.e. the Alpha Broodmother, Megapithecus and Dragon trophies can open the Tek Cave at gamma difficulty)

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]

Overseer

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.

Combat[edit | edit source]

You fight in what can be described as rounds, you will need to try to attack the Overseer while defending yourself (and your dinosaurs) from the Defense Units and Attack Drones, while you attack the Overseer it will change form into different Bosses while it loses health till it's destroyed, you fight in the Overseer Arena.

General[edit | edit source]

The Overseer is one of the most formidable Bosses in ARK (beaten by the King Titan). The Player enters its Arena handicapped after being weakened by the journey through the Tek Cave. The Overseer has a total of four forms with separate health meters, and it constantly summons Defense Units and Attack Drones. The minions drop Element upon death which can be helpful to players using Tek during the Boss fight. Any Element collected during the fight will disintegrate afterwards when the player Ascends.

The Overseer's main form resembles a Specimen Implant. When it morphs into this form, it brings up an energy shield that lasts for a few seconds and blocks all damage. It also has an area-of-effect laser attack that is deployed in a bottom-to-top "orbital" fashion, making it very difficult to avoid. Lastly and most notably, the Overseer likes to employ a shock/stun-lock and dismounting ability.

The Overseer's other three forms are Tek-energy clones of the Island's three Ultimate Lifeforms: Megapithecus, Dragon, and Broodmother Lysrix. Each of these forms displays characteristics and attacks of the original. For instance, the Megapithecus throws energy boulders while the Dragon breathes fire. The Overseer does not have every attack, however; every boss form is unable to spawn its corresponding minions, and the Dragon form cannot fly upwards.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Overseer is not a boss to fight alone, especially in a multiplayer. Even a single, fully-imprinted, starting 150+ Rex will die quite quickly at second phase. One significant issue is trying to reach the platform to access the Overseer Arena within the Tek Caves due to the danger of the area, both navigation-wise and dinosaur-wise.

During the boss fight, make sure you have some players focus the droid-minions and have a plan for if someone gets knocked off. Communication will make the fight much more bearable.

Damage-dealing dino ( Rex, Therizinosaur, Spinosaur) are better off focused on the Overseer itself.

Yutyrannus are better off focused on buffing the damage dealers with its courage roar. Fear Roar will not scare the Defense Unit or Attack Drone off.

Range hitter dino ( Velonasaur, Managarmr) are better off dealing against Attack Drone.

Crowd Controller dino ( Reaper King) are better off dealing against Defense Unit due to the tail swing ability being able to push it off.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Tek-tier weapons and armor, which should be available to survivors who have reached this point in the game, will be of great help against the Overseer. Utilize dinos with massive amounts of HP (such as the Rex with a Tek Saddle) and the Yutyrannus to boost their attack damage and reduce damage received; be aware that the Yutyrannus' fear roar does not affect the Overseer's drones.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

If you don't deal with the attack and defense drones, they will overwhelm you - don't just focus on the boss. Be mindful of the bosses Overseer shifts into. As mentioned, they use some attacks of the originals, which means the Dragon form can still kill a player with its bite in one shot.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Because it transforms into different bosses, you can use the strategies you used on those bosses again for the boss that the Overseer becomes, albeit difficult.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Any Dinos brought into the Overseer's arena will be teleported to the entrance of the Tek Cave, once the player has defeated the Overseer and ascended.
    • This means any dinos that was stuck outside Overseer's arena (Inside Tek Cave) will be left for dead, and wouldn't be teleported once the Overseer is defeated.
  • Strangely, the Overseer is said to be genderless. However, if you tame it (with cheat codes) there will be an option to neuter "it" for an unknown reason.
  • When tamed (in the arena), the Overseer will spawn in its minons, but for some reason the Defense Units and Attack Drones will attack the Overseer even if it's unclaimed.
