The Spear is the first available weapon in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is a critical item in the early game as it is the strongest melee weapon available until the Pike at Level 25, and the strongest ranged weapon until the Bow at Level 10.
Usage[edit | edit source]
The downside to the Spear is that it has a 3.5% chance to break whenever the survivor lands an attack with it, which can be very dangerous when it happens mid-combat. For this reason, beginning players are recommended to always keep more than one spear ready at any given time. If the Spear is placed on the action bar, the player can easily craft new ones on-the-go whenever they run out (provided they have the materials).
After thrown, Spears have a 5% chance to break on impact, but otherwise can be re-collected off the ground, or off of unconscious/dead bodies. Be aware that unattended Spears will naturally decay after a set time period.
A survivor can harvest materials off a corpse by using the Spear on a body. It appears to function similar to a Stone Pick, as it yields more Meat than Hide when used in this manner. However, it is not advised to harvest materials with the Spear, as Picks and Hatchets are more effective and can't randomly break.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Better version of the Spear is the Pike. It is stronger and breaks less often, but sadly cannot be thrown.
- The spear is extremely effective at fishing since it can one hit kill coelacanth and you automatically start dragging it.
