The Kaprosuchus, (Kap-roe-soo-kuss) or simply Kapro or Gator, is one of the creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena Walker, the author of the dossiers, has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creature.

NoteHelena.png
Wild

A smaller relative of the Sarcosuchus, Kaprosuchus paludentium is water-based carnivore primarily found lurking among the island's swamps.

A naturally fast runner that is even faster in the water, it is a solitary hunter that picks off small-to-medium creatures, especially those isolated from their pack.

When attacking, Kaprosuchus uses two main tactics. First, it patiently waits below the water surface and when the target is sufficiently close by, will perform a lateral jump that it uses to quickly close distance with its prey and drag it underwater.

Secondly, its attacks the prey's vital areas specifically to drain its stamina. These two techniques effectively prevent most creatures from escaping Kaprosuchus once an assault has begun.

Domesticated

Survivors are generally split about the usefulness of Kaprosuchus. Some love its speed both in and out of the water, essentially making it among the fastest small-sized, all-terrain mounts when travelling through the wetlands. Others do not like how relatively frail Kaprosuchus is, and do not think its high speed and ensnaring attacks make up for this shortcoming.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Like the larger Sarcosuchus, the Kaprosuchus will swim around in the swamp regions (or their spawn locations on the Center or Scorched) attacking different creatures of prey. They are difficult to spot usually due to the density of the trees, especially if mounted, not including Scorched Earth, where they should be easier to spot if you are perched high enough on a rock or ledge, or while mounted on a flier. If the Kaprosuchus is aggroed, it will attempt to lunge at you and, if successful in its attack, will forcibly drag you from your mount and proceed to bite the powerless player in its jaws, until death from either party unless the player uses a whip to release themselves. Its attacks can drain stamina, which will make fighting it difficult when doing it solo, or even in groups of two without strong enough tames.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Kaprosuchus bears a strong resemblance to its much larger relative, the Sarcosuchus, but still has distinct traits. It has long legs built for sprinting after land-based prey that escape its initial ambush as well as tusk-like fangs, earning it the nickname "Boar-Croc". Its hind legs are slightly longer than its front, giving it a very distinct gait and its head is smaller and more narrow than its crocodilian relative, with a small, more rectangular snout.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]




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

This information can be used to alter the Kaprosuchus's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Kaprosuchus'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]

Kaprosuchus

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]

This section describes how to fight against the Kaprosuchus.

General[edit | edit source]

Kaprosuchus is an incredibly deadly adversary. To even a player moderately progressed, this assassin of the swamps can prove an extreme threat unless you're prepared, being able to snatch you right off your mount.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Keep an eye open when traveling the swamps for Kaprosuchus, and attempt to avoid them at all costs if you wish to simply avoid conflict. Pounce will be used at mid range. Either intercept the attack, or dodge it. A strong mount, provided you've stayed on your creature, can wipe them out with little effort, due to their low Health stat.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

A strong melee weapon, such as a pike or sword, or powerful gun is what you'll need to free yourself once the Kaprosuchus grabs you. A bola can also release you from their jaws.

Shields can block its leap attack and nullify its grab.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The Kaprosuchus' stamina-draining attacks and high power can make its attack fatal. Beware traveling in murky or dark parts of the swamp, or at night, as the cover may allow the Kaprosuchus to sneak close without you noticing and open you up to a surprise pounce. Depending on the size of your mount, it can rip you from your mount causing damage while dragging you away. If your mount runs out of stamina from the initial strike or is unable to free you, you might be as good as dead. One option to free yourself from its grip is to hit it with a bola. Killing it or knocking it out while in its jaws are the only other ways to escape its deadly grasp.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

It's not a terribly fast opponent and if it misses a pounce, there's not much it can do other than go into standard melee. Luckily the Kaprosuchus is more of a glass cannon, having around 1,000 health even at higher levels when tamed. It's fairly frail, so several strong attacks and you can easily free yourself. They also have a relatively lower torpor level compared to other animals, so a few tranq arrows can not only allow you to escape it, but leave it unconscious for a tame.

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

Kaprosuchus is one of the most powerful tames and serves as a decent guardian to yourself and your herd, and having a pack of 2-3 can safeguard you from predators like Raptors and Baryonyx. But taming one is incredibly tricky, considering their aggression and their dangerous habitat. It's recommended to have a small number of tough tamed animals with you, like Carbonemys, in case something goes wrong. But make sure any tames you have are at a distance and within your whistling range. Wait for a Kapro to come close to you and try to draw it in. The difficulties with these are the likely odds of being attacked by another Kaprosuchus, as they usually travel in packs. They can kill you or your tames could kill them along with the one you are trying to tame. Try to select a location with little walking interference, with plenty of space for your current tames and you to walk around, and while taming your Kaprosuchus be sure to safeguard him/her from predators. If you're alone, a rocky area or cliff will protect you from other threats. If all goes well, no other predators will interfere and your current tames will be silent, then you got yourself a killing machine. Feel free to try this without your tames and with a powerful weapon like the metal pick/hatchet to fend of other predators. Having one or two strong tames like Carbonemys, Iguanodon, or Triceratops would be beneficial to protect you from any other threats, and quickly change their attack settings if they hurt your Kaprosuchus.


another stratagy is to level your own health and allow the kapro to grab you. quickly punch it before it reaches water when it will gain the above hand. it will not run when it is holding you, so this is a viable stratagy if youre prepared. make sure you have meat and there is nothing around that will harm your kapro, as they can be easily dispatched by most creatures in the swamp. (when i did this, i was unprepared but was able to manage this, but i think it was because of the kapros low level and my high health.)

Utility[edit | edit source]

With its C or Right Stick attack and Right Click or Left Trigger leap, it can pick up small to medium creatures.

  • The Kaprosuchus can carry almost any creature with a Drag Weight of 100 or less. This does not (by itself) damage or draw aggro from the creature.

A Kaprosuchus can knock you off the following mounts:

Roles[edit | edit source]

  • Low Level Defender: Due to it being a pretty good dino in general taming one at the start is a good idea, especially if you are going to live in or next to the swamp, as it is immune (mostly) to leeches. It is also not too hard to knock out so getting these as low level defenders could be viable.(Level Heath and Damage)
  • Taming Mount: With its ability to pick up small-medium animals would be a suitable mount for running in and snatching a quick Oviraptor or Mesopithecus before they even notice you. Unlike flyers, the Kaprosuchus is capable of regenerating its stamina while holding a target and can travel underwater (Level Health and Weight).
  • Its attack will even drain the stamina of wild creatures, allowing for an easy tame.
  • Cave Explorer: Its leap attack allows you to explore caves and pick off Cave creatures easily. Snatching up and killing Araneo with ease (Needs testing for other cave critters). Level Health, Melee Damage, and Speed.
  • Travel: Its Leap can get you from A to B with relative ease (Level Speed and Stamina).
  • PvP Raider: It can grab Players from saddles with a well placed sneak-attack leap. Allowing you to easily dispatch enemy players (Level Health, Melee Damage, Speed, and some Stamina).
  • Transport:
  • Damage:
  • Hunter:
  • Combatant:
  • Jumping:

The kaprosuchus’s leap is affective at covering terrain but can’t jump very high.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • Dossier released on 8/31/2015[2]
  • Kaprosuchus translates into "Boar-Crocodile", and was named so due to its large tusk-like fangs.
  • It is important to note that paleontologists have limited fossil material for the Kaprosuchus and actual have little idea as to what the body, legs, and tail of the animal looked like, so for all we know, the Ark Kaprosuchus could either be extremely accurate or highly inaccurate to the true creature.
  • Kaprosuchus skull has more boar teeth than Arks kapro yet most ark creatures have features that are heavily exaggerated.
  • Despite the dossier stating that Kaprosuchus is skilled on both land and water, it was most likely entirely land-based.
  • Like the Sarcosuchus and Carbonemys, the Kaprosuchus does not have an Oxygen meter and thus cannot drown despite being a terrestrial reptile.
  • The design for Kaprosuchus is surprisingly similar in appearance to the concept design for Primal Carnage: Genesis, as both designs are falsely depicted with long back legs.
  • It's the first terrestrial animal capable of picking up and carrying smaller animals.
  • Alpha Raptors cannot be grabbed, so farming XP from them will require direct combat.
  • While lots of things can't be picked up for a simple kill, they can still be dived upon, dealing massive Damage with a single bout of lunges. Be sure to save some Stamina or a hill to launch from for a quick escape to build more stamina, and return to the hit-and-run tactic. Try testing this technique on other animals that can't be picked up, such as a Stegosaurus, Trike or something that cant fight back like a Parasaur until you master it; at least enough to take on other things, or risk quickly losing your tame. Do note that this is best used in open areas, although the Kapro can fit into most caves its not suggested to jump around gathering groups of dino's, especially ones that can't be easily dispatched with it's commonly low Health pool.
  • It is unknown but Kaprosuchus could have been one of the many creatures that lived on the ARK now known as Aberration. Due to the degradation and the radiation caused the surviving creatures to become Aberration creatures. While the other creatures became mutated Kaprosuchus was probably one of the creatures that couldn't adapt and survive the damaged ARK.
  • The real Kaprosuchus lived in the Niger region in central-west Africa, and though it lived in similar regions to the Sarcosuchus, they actually did not live at the same time according to what data is available. The Kaprosuchus did however indeed coexist with Spinosaurus.
  • Shields can block its Leap+Grab attack, causing it to miss players.
  • Never punch a Kaprosuchus with your bare hands in the mission "Along Came Pollen” in Genesis as it will injure you very badly.
  • When a Kaprosuchus picks you up, it’s attacks ignore armour.
  • The Kaprosuchus ingame is about 4 meters long, but original estimates put it at 6+ meters.
