Ark Megalodon Guide (How to Tame, Drops, Food, Location…)

Ark Megalodon

Carcharodon Ultramegalodon is a large water creature with a carnivorous diet and an aggressive temperament.

These creatures resemble the modern great white sharks and are known to be very large and very deadly with a large mouth full of countless sharp teeth.

Megalodon are common in the ocean and in rare occasions can be seen in different inland water, roaming around searching for meals to devour.

Even at a far distance, the Megalodon is capable of sensing survivors and their tames in the water and will rush over to take a large bite out of its prey.

Tribes that are bold enough to tame these creatures gain the benefit of safer travel in the water as these creatures are both strong and fast.

Dossier Summary

Dossier Summary

Known to be equal to the Tyrannosaurus Rex but only in the water, the Megalodon is feared by many tribes and is avoided as much as possible.

To sustain its large body, the Megalodon needs to keep eating which explains its behavior where it attacks almost anything that enters the water.

The Megalodon is used by many tribes to explore the depths of the ocean in search of resources and even treasures.

Although the Megalodon isn’t the fastest swimmer, it is definitely able to hold its own when facing other creatures and is more than capable of protecting the tribe that owns it.

Overview

Sharks have always been creatures feared in the ocean and the Megalodon really can make your skin crawl as a beast of this size is large enough to eat you with a single bite.

Tribes best avoid such creatures when travelling in the water and many survivors tend to keep their distance even when near the shore as these creatures are always ready to attack.

Those who have one or more Megalodons are much safer in the water and can make much use of them for attacking, taming and farming underwater without worrying about getting killed.
