The Megapithecus is an end game boss in ARK: Survival Evolved that can be accessed by opening a portal to the Megapithecus Arena at an Obelisk or Beacon. It can also appear in Survival of the Fittest.


The Megapithecus is a giant ape that can throw giant boulders. It can also summon normal, smaller Gigantopithecus and Mesopithecus which will attack anyone near.


The Megapithecus is located in the Megapithecus Arena beneath the Blue Obelisk that is exclusively accessed at an Obelisk and will not naturally spawn.


The Megapithecus can only be tamed by using the command :admincheat forcetame. This command can only be used by the admin of the server.

Portal to Arena

The following items are required to open the portal.

Obtain all of the required items and locate an Obelisk or Beacon with the imprinted blueprint. A portal to the Megapithecus Arena will open.

The Battle

It is recommended to find a rock in the arena; when the Megapithecus attacks with giant boulders, hide behind it. Then, after the attack, shoot over or around the rock. It can also summon "minion" Gigantopithecus and Mesopithecus.


The Megapithecus drops two rewards: a Megapithecus Flag and Megapithecus Trophy.
