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.


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!

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Concavenator stalks the Dunes of Scorched Earth, the Deathsands of Ragnarok, The Surface of Aberration, and the Desert Dome of Extinction. 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.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "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.

Ingredients for Superior Kibble: 2 ×  Citronal, 1 ×  Prime Meat Jerky, 1 ×  Large Egg, 5 ×  Fiber, 2 ×  Rare Mushroom, 1 ×  Sap, Water

Knockout Tame Strategy[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 Torpor, which may or may not knock it out.

Although the Concavenator can be knocked out utilizing normal means, inflicting Torpor using explosives is recommended, as the time the Concavenator spends out of the ground is minimal. Additionally, its Torpor 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 Torpor, it is wise to detonate one C4 Charge at a time, avoiding the risk of damaging it as it falls unconscious.
