Arena for fighting the Ultimate Life Forms
Location

The Center Arena is a location in the DLC: The Center. It appears to be an abandoned monastery worshipping the Megapithecus, as evidenced by various statues.

Upon teleportation to the Center Arena, both the Broodmother and Megapithecus will appear and fight the players at the same time. A timer will immediately begin counting down from 25 minutes, so both bosses must be defeated within that time. Once the timer lapses, all players, dinos, and items in the arena are destroyed.

Both bosses will always spawn at level 1. The Broodmother's Araneos will always spawn at level 500. The Megapithecus' Gigantopitheci and Mesopitheci will always spawn at level 100.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Broodmother Lysrix and Megapithecus.

General[edit | edit source]

This arena has no environmental danger, such as lava rivers or cliffs, so bringing a lot of unridden tames without controlling by players is quite safe.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

If your Rexes haven't been in a boss fight yet, you should do the easy one first. This way the creatures can earn experience and levels and be prepared better for a harder difficulty.

One strategy is to use

  • at least 2 people, better 3
  • 1 Yutyrannus
  • 1 Gallimimus (leveled: full health, stamina, and speed)
  • 10 Rexes with optimally at least these stats
    • 25k HP
    • 1.3k Stamina
    • 1k weight
    • 500-600% damage
    • 100% imprinted and ridden by their owner (to increase damage and resistance by 30%)
    • 60-120 Saddle

One person goes with the Gallimimus close to the Broodmother Lysrix and maintains it occupied running following the Gallimimus. While the Broodmother is occupied, the rest have to go with the Rexes and kill very fast the Megapithecus. The Yutyrannus has to go with the Rexes and encourage them.

When the Megapithecus is dead go for the Broodmother with the Rexes and the Yutyrannus, before you start to kill it, the Gallimimus should have gone for not to get killed.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

You don't need anything in special, only some food for you.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

See each boss' page: (Megapithecus, Broodmother Lysrix)

And try not to fight two bosses at the same time.

Unlocks[edit | edit source]

Tekgrams

Completing the harder difficulties will unlock all of the lower difficulty Tekgrams as well.

Achievements

You defeated the guardians of The Center!

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • You have to be unmounted and stand on the platform in order to get teleported to the arena.
  • You must defeat The Bosses within the timer or you and your dinos will die and items will be lost.
  • As of v257.0 not all the TEK engrams are obtainable on The Center map, even if the newly added dragon boss is completed. Please refer the gallery at the bottom for more details.
  • Prior to an unknown update, Megapithecus in the arena for both Alpha and Beta instantly killed rider with its boulder throwing ability. This has been fixed.

Compatible Tamed Creatures[edit | edit source]

These restrictions do not apply to Extinction arena as the boss fight takes place inside the map rather than in a separate section of the map

Entry Restriction:

  • A maximum of 10 survivors and 20 creatures are allowed to enter the arena. In the case of Tek Cave, a maximum of 10 survivors and 40 creatures are allowed, but only 20 creatures can be warped in at any point of time to the arena itself per warp.
  • Most Arenas restrict survivors to ground-only creature. There are a few exceptions:
  • Exceptions for certain arenas are only valid for the listed arenas. E.g. Manticore Arena refers to the Manticore Arena in Scorched Earth but not Ragnarok Arena where you also have to fight against the Manticore.
  • A creature's "drag weight" must be less than 560. This is how much the creature itself weighs, not its carrying weight seen in its inventory.
To see this value in-game, place the creature on an Elevator Platform with an empty inventory and no saddle.
