Tips[edit | edit source]
- Some metal-rocks block the way, bring a metal hatchet or metal pickaxe.
- The fastest way down is by using a parachute or Grappling Hook. Be prepared for a lot of bats and scorpions on the ground though.
- It's possible to get the artifact without building anything, but foundations can be used to make some jumps easier.
- The jump over the pit in the center is possible.
- Be careful not to fall.
- Bug Repellant will make this cave much easier. You will be able to walk past bats and spiders or choose which you fight.
- Act cautiously, dinos may glitch out and die instantly.

Common[edit | edit source]
Uncommon[edit | edit source]
Compatible Tamed Creatures[edit | edit source]
- Excellent: Full-Cave Access (Entrance-to-Artifact)
- Limited: Can Access Portions of the Cave Safely
- Not Recommended: Can Get Stuck/Unable to Leave Cave
Notes[edit | edit source]
- If you bring a dino that can not jump and it falls it will be unable to escape the cave.
- This cave is swarming with bats.
- There are dangerous jumps, as you will walk a spiral path down to the ground. It is advised to bring a parachute with you.
- Parachuting down from the top is probably the best way to get down.
- It is possible for players to bring their sabers in to farm chitin however the reward is often not worth the risk. There is a lot of maneuvering that requires foundations and ramps and players are extremely likely to die if they fall.
- There is a small section of water just after the entrance to the cave and before the large descending spiral walk. No piranhas or sarcos spawn here and a player with no extra points in oxygen will be able to navigate with only half oxygen used.
- At the bottom is a metal rock blocking the path back up. It is possible to jump over the rock if the player climbs on a rock ledge just below the metal rock.
- This cave is located on Dead Island and if the cave does not kill you then all the deadly carnivores might. It is recommended to bring a flyer to get on and off this island
- Stimulants are essential in any cave with Spiders, Scorpions or Snakes.
- You can use the grappling hook to climb up and down safely. To climb down to the bottom two hooks are needed (re-attach in the middle). To climb up completely with hooks only, around four or more hooks are needed.
- Spinosaurus have the ability to swim which makes them an effective way to travel to the island and rid the cave entrance of carnivores lurking in the area.
