The Ferox is an upcoming Creature in ARK: Survival Evolved's Expansion Pack Genesis.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Ferox is a medium-sized shoulder-mounted pet. When tamed, Feroxes will search for Element and notify the survivor when they have found some. If the Ferox consumes Element, it will transform into a larger, more aggressive form of itself, which is faster, more agile, and deadlier in nature. The Ferox's aggressive form also comes with dangerous attacks, such as a pounce that knocks survivors off of their mounts (which other Ferox riders are immune to) or a mega slam which dismounts all enemy survivors in a vicinity. Much like the Deinonychus, the Ferox will be able to scale cliffs and other vertical surfaces.

Whenever the Ferox transforms into its aggressive form, its need for Element becomes greater and it will be easier for the Ferox to enter a bloodlust state, similar to the Giganotosaurus rage. This bloodlust state will cause it to attack anything, and once it has passed through that state, it will pass out and return to its passive form.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Ferox is similar in appearance to that of a Jerboa. Upon consuming Element, it transforms into a larger, more aggressive version of itself that is more canine-like in facial features. Both forms have six limbs, with the middle arms being slightly smaller than the top ones

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]

The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its second form highly resembles a Werewolf.
  • The design and behaviour of the Ferox is likely inspired by the Gremlins from the 1984 film "Gremlins".
    • The Ferox also bears a resemblance to the Bullymong from the Borderlands series.
