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 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.
- 8 Megalodon Teeth
- 4 Tyrannosaurus Arms
- 4 Argentavis Talons
- 2 Sauropod Vertebrae
- Artifact of the Hunter
- Artifact of the Pack
- Artifact of the Clever
- Artifact of the Massive
- Artifact of the Skylord
- Artifact of the Devourer
- Artifact of the Strong
- Artifact of the Immune
Obtain all of the required items and locate an Obelisk or Beacon with the imprinted blueprint. A portal to the Megapithecus Arena will open.
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.
