The Rare Mushroom is a crafting ingredient in ARK: Survival Evolved.
Usage[edit | edit source]
They are also the favorite food of the 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, causing your vision to become dark for 10 seconds. While this is usually a disadvantage, it can actually be useful when using a Tek Helmet in scan mode, as the darkening of normal vision does not affect the scan and makes it easier to pick out targets. As food, Rare Mushrooms fill 5 more points of hunger than Cooked Meat and do so instantly (rather than over time), do not require cooking, stack up to 100 instead of 50 and take three days to spoil, but they weigh twice as much and tend to be harder to find.
Because it can be gathered from crystals in caves, it can be an emergency food supply if players run out food in a cave and do not have a campfire to cook meat harvested from creatures. Just wait for the spore effect to run out before advancing.
Gathering[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Before v261 the mushrooms had no side effects and were an excellent source of food. This is still the case for ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile.
