Overview[edit | edit source]

Lesser Antidote is a consumable in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is mainly used to cure Swamp Fever.png Swamp Fever, transmitted from a Diseased Leech.png Diseased Leech among other sources, but can also be used to cure other minor ailments.

Upon consuming the Lesser Antidote, the player will have the debuffs from Swamp Fever.png Swamp Fever and Dilophosaur's venom removed. The player will gain immunity from re-acquiring these effects for three minutes.

Acquiring Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Leech Blood or Horns[edit | edit source]

The easiest way to collect Leech Blood.png Leech Blood is to build a Wooden Raft.png Wooden Raft with a room and an open deck, and sail to the swamps.

  • Use a crossbow (or other ranged weapon if necessary) while on the raft deck to kill the leeches without risking them attaching to you then harvest the leech blood using a Metal Hatchet.png Metal Hatchet.
  • If a Titanoboa.png Titanoboa gets near, hide in the room and use a melee weapon to kill it when it clips inside the room.
  • Have a campfire going inside the raft room in order to burn off any leeches that latch on during harvest or to cook up prime meat from the Titanoboa.png Titanoboa.
  • If you don't build the boat out of stone, beware of Sarco.png Sarcos since they can do decent damage to wooden structures.

Another option is to ride a Rex into the swamps and kill all the leeches. Once finished, harvest them using the Rex or a Hatchet. Using a Dino will prevent leeches from becoming attached to the player. This method will work with any carnivore but to be safe from Kaprosuchus' grab ability make sure your Dino is immune to it, usually by being too big to carry. A Rex or Spinosaur is for this reason recommended.

As an alternative Woolly Rhino Horn.png Woolly Rhino Horns or Ammonite Bile.png Ammonite Bile or Deathworm Horn (Scorched Earth).png Deathworm Horns can be used. Obtain them by killing these creatures and loot their inventory.

Rare Flower[edit | edit source]

The easiest way to obtain Rare Flower.png Rare Flower is from inside Giant Beaver Dam.png beaver dams. When opening a beaver dam, any nearby beavers will immediately gain aggro and attack you. If you have access to Ragnarok, the shores near the Blue Obelisk can be searched for Rare Flowers as well.


There are a couple ways to deal with this threat.

  • Have a friend open the dam and kite the beavers away while you loot the dams freely. If the beavers are dragged far enough from their dams, the friend can return to help collect loot.
  • Bola the beavers and kill them or quickly loot the dam and before the bolas wear off.

Players on The Island can also obtain plenty of Rare Flowers while gathering berries along the shores of the swamp. A Therizinosaur or a Brontosaurus are the best choices for gathering large quantities quickly.

Rare Mushroom[edit | edit source]

Rare Mushroom.png Rare Mushroom can be obtained from inside Giant Beaver Dam.png beaver dams, like Rare Flower.png Rare Flower. They are also obtained by chopping down the trees in the swamp that have visible roots above ground. A Theri, Bronto or Mammoth would do the job, but Theriz are encumbered easily and the Bronto also gathers other unwanted items. Mammoths don't encumber quickly since their weight reduction for wood. Players can also use an Ankylosaurus when mining Crystal.png Crystal nodes to obtain small quantities of mushrooms.

Narcotic[edit | edit source]

Narcotic.png Narcotics can be made in a Mortar And Pestle.png Mortar and Pestle by combining 5 × Narcoberry.png Narcoberries with 1 × Spoiled Meat.png Spoiled Meat.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This recipe was introduced first with Woolly Rhino Horn as ingredient, but this was changed in 242.3 to Narcotic.
  • Even though Lesser Antidote can't be stored in a Refrigerator.png Refrigerator, it can be stored in a Preserving Bin.png Preserving Bin. This will not lengthen the spoil time, however.
  • Since 246.3 you can also use Deathworm Horn (Scorched Earth).png Deathworm Horns instead of Leech Blood.png Leech Blood.
