The Nameless is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved's Aberration expansion.

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.


The origins of the Nameless remain a mystery, but wherever they came from, these vicious creatures are nothing to scoff at, as they are rarely found alone. Common Nameless act in a subservient role to their pack's alpha, and will quickly heed its call to battle.

Though savage in nature, the Nameless are deceptively intelligent. When hurt, they burrow underground to recover and protect themselves from further damage. Fortunately, they are highly susceptible to damage and burns from charge based light sources, and exploiting this weakness can save a survivor's life.


All attempts to pacify a Nameless have failed. Each one has an extremely powerful bond with its pack leader, and for survivors, it might as well be unbreakable.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Aggressive by nature, Nameless are always seeking out prey, especially survivors. In the absence of Charge Light for any length of time, they will emerge from anywhere within bio luminescence (blue) and element (red) region, and will start attacking without warning, giving chase until the said survivor either finds charged light for prolonged duration, or is very far from them/ at a point where they will lose interest (they will not stop at most of the time).

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Resembles that of a hairless goblin with a disoriented posture.

Color Scheme and Regions

The Nameless's range of its natural color scheme is unknown at this time, however its color regions are available. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Nameless.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 1 6" would color the Nameless's "" magenta.

Combat[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

Nameless often emerge from the ground in the absence of charge light, and in groups of at least three or more. If you do not have light surrounding you, or a pet that emits light, they will emerge from the ground and attack. When a growl can be heard, that is a good sign they are nearby, and will emerge once the above condition are met.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

If Nameless start attacking you, and you don't have a lantern pet with you, You should probably head to a Charge Node or Glowbug to weaken them, making it easier to fend them off.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Utilize weapons such as shotguns while mounted on a tank-grown mount will make quick work of them. Charge Lantern (Aberration).png Charge Lantern, even when deployed, disrupts their health regeneration as they are weak towards Charge Light.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

Nameless ignores camouflage effect from Pachyrhinosaurus.png Pachyrhinosaurus and Rock Drake.png Rock Drake and will seek after them in the absence of charge light should the player be on the dino.

Nameless prioritize attacking players and tamed dino over anything else, ignoring wildlife even if they attack them. In the absence of an alpha, a random Nameless can shift into their alpha state with red veins (usually only one can exist around at any point of time), attracting other nameless to join in its conquest. If left alive for too long, there is a chance it will call the Reaper.png Subterranean Reaper King out, as denoted by the constant black circle pushing away from itself with a black mist-like geyser.

If not killed in time when it does call, the Reaper king will emerge out from anywhere within instead of another nameless, making the encounter harder.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Nameless are rendered weak against Charge Lantern (Aberration).png Charge Lantern or in presence of Charge Light, reducing the effectiveness of health regeneration.

The Basilisk is very effective when fighting Nameless, as their poison attacks aren't resisted by Nameless armor.

Nameless hates Fertile land (green region), and will rather scurry underground. Useful if you want to make a quick get away.

Nameless are relatively slow, so escaping it is easy.
