Overview[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.


For how bizarre they appear in the wild, I'm surprised it's taken until now for me to see Concavenator Terrananti. Found in the sandy dunes of deserts, Concavenator seems to have adapted an incredible proficiency in digging through terrain, appearing so effortless that it's almost "swimming" through the ground. Found usually in groups of 2-3, Conca are very territorial, and VERY fast. Be wary when navigating the dunes, as it will be difficult to disengage a Conca once it has become aggravated. While in their digging state, Conca seems to be susceptible to explosives, causing them to emerge from the ground and leaving them vulnerable to tranqs.


Tamed, Concavenator excel at speed and navigating terrain. In combat, groups of Conca are quite effective at hit-and-run tactics, overwhelming enemies with their speed and quick attacks. Their long, fluff-tipped tails are also able to stir up clouds of sand, which can suffocate foes if they're not careful!

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Concavenator never strays far from the dunes of Scorched Earth, Ragnarok, Aberration, Extinction, Genesis: Part 1, and Crystal Isles. The Concavenator can dig into and swim through the ground.

The Concavenator also has a pack bonus and can stir up sand using its tail, which will inflict the Sandblasted debuff.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Concavenator has a large fin and is covered in shovel plating. The Concavenator is larger than Carnotaurus in size and smaller than Allosaurus.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]

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

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Concavenator.

General[edit | edit source]

When encountering the Concavenator, it usually dives beneath the ground and subsequently approaches the survivor at alarming speed. The Concavenator then proceeds to barrage the survivor with its attacks, lingering beneath the ground until it is forced out by explosives.

Taming[edit | edit source]

Taming Method[edit | edit source]

To tame a Concavenator, the survivor must knock it out of the ground using explosives, at which point it can be tranquilized through normal means. When forced out of the ground, Concavenator will receive some Torpidity, which may or may not knock it out.

Although the Concavenator can be knocked out utilizing normal means, inflicting Torpidity using explosives is recommended, as the time the Concavenator spends out of the ground is minimal. Additionally, its Torpidity declines rapidly, making the use of tranquilizers more likely to damage, and possibly even kill the Concavenator. Explosives such as C4 Charges may prove optimal in knocking the Concavenator out, as one can place a bunch of them in one spot and subsequently detonate them. As the Concavenator nears its maximum Torpidity, it is wise to detonate one C4 Charge at a time, avoiding the risk of damaging it as it falls unconscious.
