Titanomyrma Dossier


Titanomyrma is one of the smaller creatures on the island; a frightening thought, when you realize it is the size of a dog.

A hive-minded herbivore, Titanomyrma usually goes about its business unless provoked.

When attacked or threatened, it releases a chemical which alerts all other Titanomyrma in a large range to help fight the aggressor.

I've seen two varieties of Titanomyrma: Drones and Soldiers. Drones are smaller, faster, and land-based, and they harvest for the hive. Soldiers are larger, slower and have wings; They defend the hive. If Titanomyrma is akin to other hive-insects, there must be queens too, but I've yet to encounter such a variant.


Because of it's hive mentality, I've not seen any successfully tamed Titanomyra on the island yet. Fortunately for lone survivors, separated Titanomyrma can be easily picked off for a small supply of Chitin among other valuable natural resources.

— The Dossier

The Titanomyrma is a small herbivorous invertebrate found on the Ark.


Two variants, the land-based Drone and the winged Soldier, appear in a few colors; namely blue and red carapaces.


  • Titanomyrma are able to inject its target with a poison that will drain stamina.
  • Whether it is a glitch or not it appears that currently the Titanomyrma Soldiers and Drones doe not need to be provoked and will indeed follow a player even after respawning if in the same zone.



Titanomyrma are not observed to lay eggs currently, this is likely due to them not yet being implemented for them.
