The Onychonycteris (OH-nick-oh-NICK-teh-riss), also known as the Bat or Onyc, is a species of Mammal 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

Onychonycteris specuncola is one of the few omnivores I've seen on the Island. They seem to live primarily off the mushrooms and moss within the caves, but they attack almost any non-insect on sight.

They avoid Titanoboa whenever possible, which leads me to believe the snake to be a natural predator of Onychonycteris.

While flying in the dark caves would be difficult for any creature, Onychonycteris' ability to use echolocation has allowed it to adapt perfectly. It can be found idly flying around the caves as often as it can be found hanging from bits of the cave ceilings.

Domesticated

Not large enough to be used as mounts, and not strong enough to carry much, Onychonycteris still function well as a guard animal.

Whether protecting a vacant home or members of a tribe, their relatively vicious nature has its uses.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Bats usually fly around in caves and become aggressive when players get too close. Their pathing is currently very poor, but be careful around corners - they may attack you from the side! Due to their protocooperation with the insects inhabiting caves they can turn aggressive towards players even if they have attacked a nearby Araneomorphus or Pulmonoscorpius. When close they will slowly fly to you to attack, when hit they will fly faster and will be harder to hit. Their bite has a 10% chance of inflicting Mega Rabies.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Bats, unlike birds, keep themselves aloft by use of long fingers which are connected with a wing membrane. Bats are good and enduring flyers, but they cannot move around in any other way. Unable to sit, bats must cling to a cave niche and remain hanging upside down to relax or to sleep. Bats are lightweight, with short and mostly brown to gray fur. They have arrowheadlike incisors, which help to part small prey animals.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]




This section displays the Onyc's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Onyc. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Onyc 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 Onyc's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Onyc'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]

Onyc

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.

Taming[edit | edit source]

The Onyc is tamed non-violently, rather than through the use of tranquilizers, and requires a player level of 65 to feed. Since it is a naturally aggressive creature, you must first apply Bug Repellant to yourself in order to keep it from attacking you on sight. The Bat will not be tameable if it is trying to attack another creature or is feeding on a corpse, so you must remove any such distractions from the area, or lure the Bat to a more secluded area.
Once you have the repellent applied and distractions dealt with, place the food you wish to feed it in the right-most slot of your hotbar. Then, carefully approach the Bat until the button prompt to feed it appears - it will eat the piece of food you give it and a taming bar will appear. You must then wait until it becomes hungry enough to be fed again, and repeat the process.
If you accidentally get too close and touch the Bat, it will become aggressive and attack, despite the repellant. In order to continue taming it, you must get far enough away for it to lose interest in you. A Ghillie Suit can be used as a substitute for repellant, but you will need to be prone to get close enough to tame it, leaving you vulnerable to attacks.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Onyc.

General[edit | edit source]

Onyc's appear in caves in huge numbers and can shred even flak armor with ease. Wearing hide armor is quite recommended so you can repair your armor on the fly while still providing protection.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

In the close-quarters of the cave you will likely only get 1-2 shots off before the Onyc is on top of you so you will rely heavily on melee to kill them. Concentrate fire with allies and evade melee as much as possible. It should be noted that their damage rapidly compounds massive armor damage and the faster you can kill them the better.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Close-range weapons are necessary. A shotgun is expensive but guarantees victory against all but the largest swarms. A pike can prove capable of piercing many Onycs at once, and a shotgun will obliterate them once they are close.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

If you are caught by large numbers of bats without armor they will make short work of you. They also synergize extraordinarily well with other cave creatures that specialize in locking you down with tranquilizing venom and web attacks. Becoming immobilized by other creatures in the cave will render you susceptible to the Onyc's armor-rending attacks. Keep your armor repaired, and bring materials to repair it on-site if possible (remember you can skin Onycs, Sarcos, and Titanoboas for necessary hide but typically cannot gather fiber where bats are found).

In Patch v261.0 Onycs gained a 10% chance to inflict Mega Rabies on hit. This makes getting hit much more dangerous to unprepared survivors. Consider bringing Lesser Antidote when exploring areas that Onyc are in.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Don't be afraid to retreat and hit-and-run large clumps to death as the Onyc is surprisingly bad at chasing. Bringing mounts is extremely effective as even a lowly Dimorphodon can prove a necessary distraction to deal lethal damage or, in numbers, fight the bats easily on their own.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

  • Armor Destroyer: Even in late-game fights that are usually won by Rexs and Spinos, the Onyc's unique ability to devastate armor makes it remarkably dangerous to players. (Level up Damage and Health)
  • Guard: Capable of protecting your home from raiders by simple virtue of devouring them and their armor the second they come in contact with the enemy. (Level Damage and Health)
  • Hunter: Intermixed with Dimorphodon it can devastate enemies when deployed offensively in large swarms versus players. (Level up Damage and Health)
  • Usurper: The ability to ruin a player's armor easily is a skill that, employed correctly, can allow a low level player who has obtained one to tactically use this power to eliminate a higher-level player. A nighttime ambush on an oblivious survivor can result in the higher-level player losing their armor while the player works to kill them. This method can be made simpler by utilizing an Arthropleura, which also quickly destroys an enemy's armor.
  • Damage: It's attack has 35 base damage, which is at the same level of medium carnivores such as Carno and Sarco.
  • Swarmers: A swarm of tamed bats can dismember opponent survivors in a mere seconds by shredding their armor first, and deals considerable damage to them at the same time.
  • Aerial Attack:
  • Combatant:

Bugs/Glitches[edit | edit source]

  • Since the release of Aberration, the Onyc icon has been improperly replaced by the Seeker icon, and vice versa.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • When using the whistle command for landing fliers on the Onyc, they appear to do a back flip, putting their feet up to grab. Because of this, it seems possible that they will be able to "land" and hang from ceilings in a future update.
    • As of March 2020, nearly 5 whole years since the game launched in early access, the inability for the Onyc to land has still not been addressed and most likely never will be by the devs, as the Onyc is a creature of lower importance/priority to most players and developers of the game.
  • 3-5 Onychonycteris can easily shred through even the best armor, so it is advised not to wear valuable armor when exploring caves, as they are usually everywhere and in high quantities.
  • The Onyc can spread Mega Rabies to a survivor even when mounted, as they can also focus attacks on the rider like that of the Dimorphodon and Microraptor.
  • The generic name Onychonycteris means "clawed bat" in Greek. The species name specuncola appears to be an improper combination of Latin specus "cave" and -cola "dweller" (thus "cave dweller"), possibly via confusing/conflating specus with spelunca (from Greek σπῆλυγξ spêlunx), which also means "cave"; the correct form would be either specicola or speluncicola.
  • The bat in game is much larger than a real Onychonycteris, which actually wasn't very big with only around a 50 cm wingspan.
  • Real life Onychonycteris were incapable of the echolocation of modern bats.
  • Since the release of Aberration, the Onyc icon has been improperly replaced by the Seeker icon. Oddly, even though its has been over 2 years since this issue appeared, it has still not been patched.
  • As the Onyc cannot land or swim, they cannot be cloned using the Tek Cloning Chamber and cannot be teleported using the Tek Teleporter unless a Megalosaurus is used to grab and "ground" the Onyc.
  • Cannot leave the northeast cave on The Island if tamed there unless a Cryopod is used.
  • Real Bats give birth to live young like many mammals, however Ark's Onyc do not even have the ability to reproduce at all, at least when tamed.
    • Although the Onyc can't give birth to live young or reproduce, they still some how manage to spawn into the Ark worlds. The cause of this might be that their reproduction hasn't been documented so the Overseer spawns them into the ARK worlds.
  • If one looks closely at the wings of an Onyc, a flaw in the model can be spotted as there are 2 big holes in the membrane of the wing that are opened and shut with every wing beat.
    • This has since been fixed as of December 2019, though it is unknown which patch it came in.
  • Even though Onyc only eats meat, according Helena's notes she has seen Onyc eating mushrooms and moss growing in the caves. In fact, survivors in Ark can't gather the mushrooms or moss that grow in the caves, nor has the Onyc ever have been observed eating these foods in the caves.
  • Real bats are social animals that live in colonies however Ark's Onyc doesn't have this behavior that real bats have. Rather, they merely congregate in large groups, usually for the reason of preying upon unlucky survivors.
  • Despite the dossier stating they're fearful of Titanoboa, they show no signs of fear in game and in fact will typically be found near them.
    • This was probably an originally planned mechanic that would make the Titanoboa the main predator of the Onyc, though this has never been seen to come to fruition and probably for good reason, as both creatures would kill each other constantly and inevitably would attack other creatures by accident, instead of attacking the player. This would make caving WAY easier, as all one has to do is pit the Titanoboa and Onyc(and most likely other creatures would get involved) against each other and wait for the battle to end and pick off the survivors.
