Melee Damage.png

Melee Damage in ARK: Survival Evolved is a basic statistic for both players and creatures. It is a measure of the amount of extra damage dealt when attacking, or yield when harvesting renewable resources. Thus, a higher Melee Damage kills creatures and other players, as well as harvest resources, in fewer hits. It also increases the total yield of resources harvested from a renewable resource, and improves the chances of receiving any rare resources.

Base damage depends on the tool or weapon in use, and Melee Damage is a multiplier of this base damage.

Increasing[edit | edit source]

Putting a point into Melee Damage for players increases their damage modifier by 5%.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Some servers "clamp" resource harvesting, meaning that each source has a max amount of resources it can yield, regardless of how much your melee damage allows you to harvest with each hit.
  • Eating Battle Tartare , Enduro Stew and beer temporarily increases your melee damage.(currently bugged and Battle Tartare and Enduro Stew do not give addition damage)
  • Attacking while you are out of Stamina increases your Torpor.
  • Increasing melee damage affects the damage output of player melee weapons, but not of ranged weapons. It also increases the damage of all dino attacks that a dino has.
