Saddles allow you to ride various creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved. Riding a creature requires crafting the correct saddle and equipping it from the creature's inventory. some saddles have 'special abilities'.

Saddle Stats[edit | edit source]

Most Saddles made with Engrams have 25 Armor. Carbonemys, Trike, Pachyrhinosaurus, Diplodocus, Paracer, Paracer Platform and Bronto (not platform) have 20 Armor. The Titanosaur Platoform Saddle has 1.0 Armor. Saddles made with Blueprints can have better stats. With the exception of the Roll Rat Saddle Aberration Icon.png, saddles don't lose durability, and it is not visible on tooltips.

Titan Platform Saddles are not included here as they are not crafted, but automatically equipped on tamed Titans.

Saddle Armor[edit | edit source]

By gathered in-game data, the following formulas were derived for calculating damage reduction to dinos from armor.

The general formulas are as follows:

DamageMultiplier = 100 / (100 + Armor Coefficient * Armor)
TotalDamage = Damage * DamageMultiplier
DamageReduction = 1 - DamageMultiplier

The value of the Armor Coefficient varies based on the source of the damage and are shown in the following sections.

Explosives[edit | edit source]

For explosive damage against saddles, the Armor Coefficient has a value of 1.

DamageMultiplier = 100 / (100 + 1 * Armor)


Example using 750 explosive damage (Grenades and rockets from a primitive Rocket Launcher) against a creature:

Armor Damage Multiplier Total Damage Damage Reduction
0 1 750 0%
25 0.8 600 20%
30 0.769230 (repeating) 576.92 23.08%
40 0.714285 (repeating) 535.71 28.57%
50 0.666666 (repeating) 500 33.33%

Firearms and Melee Weapons[edit | edit source]

For bullet damage and player melee weapon against saddles, the Armor Coefficient has a value of 4.

DamageMultiplier = 100 / (100 + 4 * Armor)


Example using 60 bullet damage (bullet from a Simple Pistol) against a creature:

Armor Damage Multiplier Total Damage Damage Reduction
0 1 60 0%
25 0.5 30 50%
30 0.454545 (repeating) 27.27 55%
40 0.384615 (repeating) 23.08 61.54%
50 0.333333 (repeating) 20 66.66%
  • As of patch 231.4 turrets do 2.2x damage vs. all dinos.

Dino Attacks[edit | edit source]

For dino damage, the Armor Coefficient varies on the attacker. It can vary widely with some examples are shown below:

  • Attacks from Rexes and Brontos: 4 (50% damage reduction from a 25 armor saddle)
  • Attacks from Alpha Raptors: 1 (20% damage reduction from a 25 armor saddle)
  • Attacks from Mantas: 0.4 (9.09% damage reduction from a 25 armor saddle)
