GachaClaus is one of the Event Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Place Mistletoe or Coal in GachaClaus' Inventory. He will walk around, then sit and eat it and crystals will grow on his back until they drop. You will get varying quality levels of Gacha Crystals which turn into Armor, Festive Dino Candy or weapons when consumed from your inventory (hitting the use key on the crystal). Only one mistletoe or coal is required to yield a crystal. GachaClaus will eat as many as 10 if placed in its inventory, yielding no better quality of loot. The GachaClaus commonly glitches and stops yielding crystals. If GachaClaus is no longer eating or yielding crystals move on to another. Gacha Crystals will often times weigh less than the loot they contain.

If any wild creatures are nearby, it is best to kill them, as Gacha Claus hates being near them and will cause them to move more frequently.

Merry Christmas and have fun!

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]

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

Drops[edit | edit source]

GachaClaus has the same drops as the Gacha when killed, as well as the drops from the Gacha Crystals, albeit at a higher chance of ascended items. The difference between the Gacha Crystals from GachaClaus and any other Gacha is the chance to get Coal, Mistletoe, and other Winter Wonderland loot.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against GachaClaus.

General[edit | edit source]

Killing GachaClaus requires similar strategies to the ones employed on a regular Gacha.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This thing is easy to beat so long as you use ranged weapons. It's slow and doesn't deal much damage.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Most weapons will suffice against GachaClaus, but a Longneck Rifle is generally useful to kill it with.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

It can be very distracting of other things around you.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Gacha Claus is the second "Santa Claus" to be introduced in Winter Wonderland, the first being Raptor Claus.
  • Gacha Claus can be forcetamed and can be ridden without a saddle. After being tamed it has production options to produce either mistletoe or coal, but if these are not selected and left untampered after forcetaming it will continue to produce normally like a wild Gacha Claus.
  • Gacha Claus doesn't despawn after the Winter Wonderland event, meaning one can still find them, but will be gone once killed
  • Unlike its regular variant, Gacha Claus does not become "happy" if mate-boosted by a nearby opposing-gender gacha claus, or sad at near same-gender gacha claus within 12 foundation or below.
