Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Guardian Hologram[edit | edit source]

NoteRockwellAlien.png

So succumbs the Lord of the Forest, the titan wreathed in green, who lashed out with root and vine to pin its foes to the ground or drag them to their doom. The forest itself rose to shield it, but even that could not save it. Not from you.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Forest Titan measures in at roughly 216 feet tall.To get a grasp on the scale of the forest titan, the original Godzilla from the 1954 film is only 164 feet tall or 50 meters tall, making the forest titan roughly 65 meters tall. Some of its parts glow from Element. It appears to be made of Element surrounded by weaving and gnarly branches (the size of redwood trunks).

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]




X mark.svg

The Forest Titan always spawns with the same color scheme and has no color regions.

This means it is currently impossible to make alterations to the Forest Titan's natural spawn colors.

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]

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 Forest Titan.

General[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Killing the Forest Titan is a job easier said than done but with the right tools you can make this fight much easier. The Forest Titan will spawn several Forest Wyvern, once landed these can be mounted by players and used to burn the trees and the titan itself with fire attacks. Managamr no longer does damage as their damage scales off due to distance so keep this in mind when deciding what to use to fight the Forest Titan.

Recommended Tames[edit | edit source]

NOTE that I used creatures that came from that map the boss was released on to make fair suggestions.

If you feel like adding creatures that's fair enough however don't add any that are exclusive to a Expansion Pack if those creatures aren't on the same corresponding map the boss is on or any free maps released with the base game. (ex. Reaper King on The Island should not be suggested since you have to buy the Aberration Expansion Pack to get them and not everyone will be able to afford that Expansion Pack).

Unique creatures from maps like Ragnarok and Valguero and Expansion creatures that were used on that map (ex. Karkinos used on Valguero) however are exceptions since the players have instant access to them for free.

  • Having a Mek will always be effective when fighting any Titans due to their strong stats and damage and their ability to use attachments.
  • If playing with multiple players having at least one person control a Scout can also be useful due to their ability to heal Meks.
  • As always having a Yutyrannus is always advised due to its courage roar and the fact that since the Titans are world bosses they can use the fear roar to scare away creatures attempting to interrupt the fight.
  • Due to the Titans being world bosses Giganotosaurus Rushing can be very effective due to their powerful stats so long as the player keeps their distance.
  • Using a Snow Owl can be effective due to their ability to fly and heal ally tames and players.
  • Having a couple of Velonasaur can also be useful as a background support creature firing at the Titan.
  • While not nearly as effective as the Gigas Rex Rushing can still be used.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

  • The Forest Titan has durability on its side so be prepared for a lengthy fight.
  • Getting close to it without a mount is dangerous as its stomp or swipe can outright kill or heavily injure a survivor in one hit.
  • It also has a move where it will send out vines from its right arm in an attempt to grab the player and even certain mounts and getting hit by this is pretty much guaranteed death as it deals 15,000 damage, ontop of that this attack can grab you and pull you out of your mek so be careful.
  • The Forest Titan can also spread poisonous trees around the battlefield that can rack up consistent damage and should be destroyed when possible if their presence is impeding progress.
  • Lastly, the Forest Titan can send roots through the ground to immobilize grounded tames and survivors. Those on flying mounts should take to the sky and other survivors that can get in the air by any means possible should definitely do so because this root will dismount you from tames.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

The Forest Titan is very slow and can be vulnerable to long aggro chains on distant targets. This can allow a lot of free damage or progress on destroying the corruption. Most of its attacks are easily telegraphed and can be evaded with quick movement. With the right strategy and tools on your side the titan is nearly helpless in thwarting your attempts to kill or tame it.

Taming[edit | edit source]

The Forest Titan is tamed by attacking the corruption nodes on the body in a designated sequence. First, you need to destroy the 2 nodes on its shoulders. After that, a node on its chin will appear. After all corruption has been destroyed, the Forest Titan will fall down and lie on the ground. After this, you will need to press E to tame it. Once this happens, it will stand up and will equip itself with a special Platform Saddle. The saddle placement varies per Titan and the Forest Titan can be controlled via a special cockpit area on the saddle.

It is important to note that the more damage done to the Forest Titan during the taming process will reflect on the amount of damage done by the Forest Titan after it has been tamed. Two ways you can see if you damage the corruption node is either with damage numbers being turned on and seeing "1" damage being dealt or watching the corruption node flare out in response to being damaged. As of current, it is uncertain how much health the corruption node has, but its destruction is based on damage dealt and not the number of hits taken. (Tests showed that with a ~650% damage Fabricated Sniper Rifle it took 316 bullets to break a corruption node. This is equivalent to ~244,000 damage but this isn't factoring in damage reduction that the titan gets for bullets. This was tested in playersonly mode.)

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Forest Titan is the 4th largest creature in the game (the largest being King Titan, second being Rockwell, and finally the third being the Alpha Deathworm/ Iceworm Queen.
  • When one of the nodes on the shoulders is destroyed, the arm will fall off, but it will regrow after some time. For some reason the game still treats the fallen arms like a part of the Forest Titan's body, so you can still deal damage to the titan through them
  • The Dermis of the Forest Titan will appear without arms when displayed in a Taxidermy Base, this is assumed to be a bug.
  • The Forest Titan is the only one out of the three Titans to have a death animation, the other Titans just fall to the ground.
  • The Forest Titan's internal name, ForestKaiju, is a reference to the Japanese Kaiju film genre.
  • Prior to Patch 287.110, Titans were able to be fed with Kibble to prevent them from starving to death.
  • the Forest Titan is the only Titan other than the King Titan to have a large role in the explorer notes.
  • (On singlerplayer), A tamed Forest Titan’s health will reset to 400k after exiting the world whether it is Alpha, beta or gamma. This should be a bug.
