Ark Yutyrannus (How to Tame, Drops, Food, Location…)

Ark Yutyrannus

The Yutyrannus Saevus is a large carnivorous predator from the Cretacious period that displays an aggressive attitude.

Seemingly similar to other large dinosaurs that existed, the Yutyrannus appears to have adapted to the cold through evolution and remains very dominant over other creatures.

Different types of Yutyrannus can be seen stomping around either in the cold or desert biomes in several maps.

When a human or their tames approach, the Yutyrannus will immediately begin to engage them and even bring along some smaller creatures to attack with it.

A tamed Yutyrannus still shows its dominant side even when loyal to a tribe as it can boost the morale of other creatures and even scare off the tames of the tribe’s enemies.


Dossier Summary

Many believe that the Yutyrannus is a relative of the Tyrannosaurus Rex although it is seen later on that they resemble other creatures due to its feathers and fur.

Surprisingly, this creature is capable of hunting alongside Carnotaurus and will even be assisted by them when fighting other creatures or attacking prey.

Yutyrannus are known to be good for both defense and offense due to the fact that it has two distinctive roars, one to frighten enemies away and another to boost the combat effectiveness of its allies.

Being as large as it is, the Yutyrannus is capable of taking a substantial amount of damage and is even brought in for boss fights and even entering the front lines when facing enemies in battle.

Support Mount

Due to its ability to boost the attack and defense of the tribe’s creatures, the Yutyrannus plays a good role when it comes to support.

Damage Dealer

Its large body and massive bite help the Yutyrannus deliver some of the most painful attacks that can be dealt, making it suitable for dealing damage.


Using its ability to scare wild creatures as well as the tames of opposing tribes, the Yutyrannus can be considered a good disabler, especially since its roar can affect multiple enemies.


Enemies that rush the area where the Yutyrannus is guarding will most likely be frightened by its roar, causing them to run into turrets or wander off away from the location.

How to Tame Yutyrannus?

A Yutyrannus is hard to tame when unprepared and it is advisable to create a trap for it so that you and your tribe may fire at it from a safe distance.

Building a trap of dinosaur gateways with gates on each side is a good method and later on luring the Yutyrannus by shooting it or running near it then towards the traps can easily cause it to get caught.

Lure the Yutyrannus into your trap and escape from the side to close it up but be sure to keep tames away as its roar can still affect them and cause them to run away.

Once the Yutyrannus is trapped, you and your tribe can take free hits at it until it is knocked out and ready to be domesticated.

This creature is as powerful as it is frightening and it really has an impact during battles due to its ability to support other creatures along with fighting alongside them.

One of the best features this creature has is that you can set its roar to passive, allowing it to buff your tames without manually using the ability.

During boss fights, the Yutyrannus plays a big role as it makes your tames more capable of surviving as well as dealing damage.

Although some are frightened by the very sight of this creature, some are strangely attracted to the feathers and adore this large beast.
