The Gallimimus (gal-uh-MY-mus) is one of the Dinosaurs 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

When someone asks me what the fastest creatures on the island are, Gallimimus is always a contender. Unlike the Island's many armored animals, Gallimimus eschews strong defenses for the ability to outrun pretty much anything.

A skittish herbivore, Gallimimus even looks nervous when eating in a peaceful, clear meadow. Having no real way to harm predators, it simply runs away and uses its agility to stay safe. I've even seen wild Gallimimus outrun speed-trained Utahraptors!

Domesticated

There are two general camps on the use of tamed Gallimimus. One camp thinks that their inability to effectively harm hostile creatures, and their inability to harvest most resources, makes them primarily a burden to the tribe.

The other camp thinks that their extreme speed and ability to jump long distances, is among the best for scouting and exploring. However, both camps agree that its ability to quickly transport multiple tribe members is uniquely beneficial.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Gallimimus is a very skittish, shy species. Constantly on alert for carnivores, it never walks slowly, preferring to move around at a moderate trotting speed. When injured, it will run extremely fast away from its attacker, but is slowed down in water.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Gallimimus is a large herbivore resembling something akin to a reptilian ostrich. Like an ostrich, it has a long neck and a beak for eating foods like grasses and Berries. It has a slim build with a long tail to act as counterbalance when sprinting from predators like Carnotaurus and Raptors.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]




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

Gallimimus

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.

Ingredients for Simple Kibble: 1 ×  Cooked Fish Meat, 1 ×  Small Egg, 5 ×  Fiber, 5 ×  Mejoberry, 2 ×  Rockarrot, 1 ×  Water

Gallimimus has low health compared to its torpor, a crossbow with tranq arrows can kill them, even if you give 5 seconds between shots.

Favorite Food[edit | edit source]

  1. Kibble (Dimetrodon Egg)
  2. Crops
  3. Mejoberry
  4. Fresh Tea Leaves Primitive Plus Icon.png

K.O. Strategy[edit | edit source]

Use a Bola, then knock it out using a club or Tranquilizer Dart. Beware of other predators nearby that may harm you, your tames and the gallimimus. Transport one to a safer place using an Argentavis, then knock it out while in there. (No longer viable)

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Gallimimus.

General[edit | edit source]

In general, the Gallimimus has a skittish behavior and tends to run away on the first shot. The Gallimimus, due to lacking of Health becomes quite annoying to tame. The Gallimimus becomes an efficient Dinosaur after taming due to its high speed.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Aiming for the head will kill the Gallimimus almost always, no matter the level. When hit, it will run off at extreme speed. Try to trap the Gally in rocks or on a cliff if it doesn't go down first time.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Rifle works best but can still kill the dinosaur in one hit.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

It's not dangerous but if it doesn't go down on the first shot you're not likely to get another chance.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

It has high movement speed but a lack of Health, therefore it is easy to take down.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

  • Scout: One of, if not the fastest land creatures players have access to, the Gallimimus can easily cover ground to search around the island and avoid danger. The ability to have additional riders acting as spotters/gunners allows for surprising flexibility as well (Level up Speed, Stamina, and some Health).
  • Travel/People Carrier: With the ability to carry two passengers alongside the rider the Gallimimus can quickly move people between bases and areas discretely when compared to other mounts such as a Quetzal, which sticks out like a sore thumb when transporting people (Level up Stamina and Weight).
  • Skirmisher: Speed and the ability to have two gunners firing all around the Gallimimus allows players to quickly enter an area and attack enemies before retreating without needing to dismount, letting you harass targets easily and quickly (Level up Health, Speed, and Stamina).
  • Hunting: As of V253, the primary rider has the ability to use weapons while riding, meaning Gallimimus may now be used as a solo hunting mount despite the weakness of its own attack. Its low weight capacity means that the weapons, gear and taming supplies that can be brought along are limited, but provided it is not overloaded or ridden into water, Gallimimus provides the ability to snipe targets from a distance and then retreat before almost anything can close the distance.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • Gallimimus was first revealed by Jat on 6/15/2015[2]
  • The dossier for this creature was revealed by Jat on 7/22/2015[3]
  • In reality, Gallimimus was most likely an omnivore.
  • Gallimimus is a member of Ornithomimosauria, a clade closely related to raptors and modern birds, it is also one of the largest of their kind.
  • The Gallimimus saddle is unlocked at a fairly early level. However there are a few things you must consider when thinking of taming one. The amount of metal needed may be difficult to obtain so early for some players, as well as the fact that they can only be knocked out with Tranquilizer Darts (or Toxicant Arrows on mobile), which are unlocked at level 62. Also, they can no longer be immobilised by a bola, and they can move and change direction faster than the time it takes to fire a shot, so it's extremely difficult and wasteful of darts attempt to knock them out without trapping them first (they can be aggro'd and lured by eating a Rare Flower near them - just watch out nothing else is in range!). Lastly, their spawn regions often coincide with some of the most dangerous predators on the island. So be prepared.
  • The Gallimimus' torpor goes down at an alarming rate, having plenty of narcotics with you is a good idea.
  • Like any animal, the Gallimimus' speed is always at a base of 100% regardless of level. That said, if all level up points are put into movement speed, the creature easily becomes "too fast for ARK", and will go flying high into the air with the slightest amount of terrain difference (such as a fallen log) when running.
  • If you are having difficulty finding any Gallimimus in areas they should appear normally, particularly on a private server, check near (50,50) as this is a place where "glitched" dinos and lost items tend to end up.
  • The skull seen in its dossier actually belongs to its relative Struthiomimus.
  • The dossier states that the Gallimimus is able to outrun speed-trained raptors, however the dossier shows a Gallimimus being chased by a Rex. It is unknown why this choice was made. -However it might be a reference to Jurassic park in which a Gallimimus herd is attacked by a Tyrannosaurus Rex
  • The Gallimimus in the game are portrayed with teeth, which the real animal never had.
  • While most dinosaurs have a saddle in their notes to show that they can be ridden Gallimimus doesn't have a saddle in it's notes.
  • Many dinosaurs have a collar show in their notes to let people know they can be tamed there is no collar shown in Gallimimus notes.
  • Real Gallimimus were a social dinosaur that lived in herds, Ark's Gallimimus can be found with another one of it's species but it is mostly seen alone.
  • prior to version 303.1 it was possible to bola the Gallimimus or grab it with a Quetzal or Wyvern what made taming a lot easier.
    • Chain Bola replaced the functionality of bola on Gallimimus.
    • It's still possible to transport Gallimimus via air using a Cryopod. However, letting it run their own way to your base is presumably faster than any other transportation method.
  • Although it is unknown Gallimimus could have been a dinosaur that lived in the ARK world known as Aberration. The Gallimimus most likely couldn't survive the radiation that changed the environment after the ARK was damaged.
