Giant Bee Honey is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Honey has a number of different usages:

  • It can be eaten directly by survivors for a substantial amount of Food. But on the mobile version you can’t eat it and is instead thrown on the ground for bait.
  • It is an ingredient for Sweet Vegetable Cake cooking recipe.
  • When thrown on the ground, Honey works as bait for attracting nearby creatures.
  • When thrown into the water, it calms aggressive Leedsichthys .
  • It can be used to tame the Liopleurodon (temporarily), Direbear, Megatherium and Roll Rat. In this usage, Honey works exactly like kibble giving 80 food.
  • It is usable as a fishing bait for Fishing Rods along with Sap or Leech Blood.
  • It provides a good amount of health using the honey within custom created recipes.
  • It is an ingredient for extraordinary kibble.

Honey is highly perishable and is best kept in a Refrigerator.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

It is gathered from a Bee Hive that is produced by a tamed Giant Bee.

Honey can also be gathered from wild bee hives, on a fifteen minute timer. Use caution, as the Giant bees could potentially come out of the harvested hive.

Honey can also be harvested with a Direbear at twice the normal rate without harming the hive or aggravating the bees. This is a much better method than harvesting by hand. If accidentally attacked through methods other than Direbear, it can act as protection from Giant Bee knocking off.

Notes / Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Real honey doesn't spoil so long as it is kept dry.
  • Honey might give more health than prime meat in custom recipes, but it is still outclassed by the other cooked meats because they can stack.
