The Rare Mushroom is a crafting ingredient in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Rare Mushrooms are required to craft Re-Fertilizer.png Re-Fertilizer, Lesser Antidote.png Lesser Antidote and to cook the Shadow Steak Saute.png Shadow Steak Saute and Mindwipe Tonic.png Mindwipe Tonic dishes.

They are also the favorite food of the Procoptodon.png Procoptodon and should be used for taming it.

Eating the mushroom on its own provides 25 Food but you will get the effect Hallucinogenic Spores. Your view is very restricted for 10 seconds. They fill 5 more points of hunger than Cooked Meat.png Cooked Meat, stack up to 100 instead of 30, but weigh twice per piece, do not require to be cooked, instantly increase your current food amount (instead of over time like other sources) but spoil after 3 days.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

Large amounts of Rare Mushrooms can be found by chopping mangrove trees within the swamp or from Giant Beaver Dam.png Giant Beaver Dams. They also rarely drop when mining Crystal.png Crystal.

In Scorched Earth, Rare Mushrooms can be found while mining Crystal.png Crystals and rarely when using the Whip (Scorched Earth).png Whip or Morellatops.png Morellatops / Ankylosaurus.png Ankylosaurus on purple flowers.

The Roll rat on Aberration can also gather them in large quantities from the Hallucinogen mushrooms.

The Daeodon excels at collecting rare mushrooms. When they attack plants that carry rare mushrooms (e.g., cattails on The Center or The Island, or purple flowers on Scorched Earth) they only get mushrooms, so there's no need to empty them of berries, seeds, and fiber.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Before v261 the mushrooms had no side effects and were an excellent source of food.
