The Iguanodon (ig-WAN-oh-don[1]) is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

NoteHelena.png
Wild

Of the many creatures I've yet encountered on the Island, the Iguanodon vicissitudinis has the distinctly versatile capability of switching its primary method of locomotion according to its momentary needs.

Primarily a rather lethargic bipedal herbivore native to the Island's many grasslands and forests, in situations where increased speed or maneuverability is called for, it will quickly shift its posture into quadrupedal stance and behave like a very different creature!

While bipedal, it can employ rapid, stabbing attacks with its distinctive thumb spikes. In quadrupedal stance, conversely, it seems to have an endless supply of stamina, even while sprinting!

Domesticated

Interestingly, the Iguanodon's thumb spikes also provide it with the capability to pick seeds out of fruits, allowing a farmer to easily convert stacks of fruits into stacks of seed for planting.

Combined with its highly effective fruit harvesting and substantial carry weight, the Iguanodon's excellent mobility in bipedal stance makes it an ideal field-hand that can also pull off a quick get-away or an agile defense when needed.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Iguanodons, like many other herbivores on the ARK, are gentle creatures that will not harm humans or other animals on sight. However once attacked, they will fight back using their thumb spikes in bipedal mode. When sufficiently injured or if their torpor rises high enough, they will turn and flee on all four legs. Like other herbivores, it is a herding animal and will help defend others from attack.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Iguanodon is a medium herbivorous dinosaur that bears a strong resemblance to the Parasaurolophus but without the distinct head crest. Instead the animal has two spike-like thumbs for prying fruits open to reach at delicious seeds and stabbing would-be predators. They are as capable of walking on all fours as they are on just their hind legs.




Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Iguanodon's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Iguanodon. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Iguanodon 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.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Iguanodon's "body" magenta.

Base Stats and Growth[edit | edit source]

Note that creatures will have different stats in Survival of the Fittest

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.[2]

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.

Preferred Food[edit | edit source]

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Iguanodon has a rather fast movement speed for early players and will begin to run when Health or Torpor gets low, making the Bola a valuable tool when attempting to knock one out.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Iguanodon.

General[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

A sword will be more than sufficient, due to its rather low Base Health.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Susceptible to Bolas and has rather low health pool.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

  • Low Level Mount: Moderately easy to tame (just remember to bring a bola or a bear trap!).
  • Pack Mule: Stamina does not drain when running on all fours (Level up Speed and Weight)
  • Long Distance Runner: Since stamina does not drain while on all fours, running speed is decent, swim speed isn't awful, and has the ability to jump, can pump all points into speed for a cross-island mount (Level up Speed)
  • Farming Aid: Allows for berries to be turned into seeds, making once hard to get berries much easier, e.g., Narcoberries. Also great for making organic oil from bulk seeding of berries if you play on primitive plus.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • Dino Dossier released on October 12, 2015 on Steam.[3]
  • The dossier mistakenly lists Iguanodon as living during the Late Jurassic, when it instead lived during the Early Cretaceous.
  • Right click,XboxOne Y.png allows to switch between bipedal and quadrupedal.
  • Has increased speed and unlimited Stamina while running quadrupedal.
