ARK Survival Evolved Gets Moschops, The Cowardly Dino

It had been some time since Studio Wildcard released anything new for ARK Survival Evolved, so they decided to break the silence with one big dino, Moschops. And no, this is not a big bad and dangerous dinosaur like some would expect.

The new entry into the Dino Dossier is a Mid Permian era’s omnivorous animal that you have nothing to fear from because it is of a cowardly nature.

Studio Wildcard, the developers, have explained what exactly it is in Moschops that makes it worth having since defense is not a strong point of the dino. They say that “over time it can be taught exactly which things to gnaw” which is a unique ability for it.

What makes Moschops particularly interesting is what it can be trained to do with its eating habits. With a versatile palate and tough teeth, Moschops can be tamed for a unique ability: over time it can be taught exactly which things to gnaw, increasing the likelihood of harvesting that exact resource which its master desires. For example, teach it to prioritize chewing Prime Meat, and Prime Meat will be easier to harvest from the flesh it consumes. Likewise for rare plants materials, and so forth!

The new ARK Survival Evolved dino, however, is not going to help you at all when you get attacked. The first thing it will do in response of provocation is to run with its tail between its legs. Food, strength, or affection will not matter.

Here are key details about Moschops:

  • Common Name: Moschops
  • Species: Moschops Cibumutante
  • Time: Mid Permian
  • Diet: Omnivore
  • Temperament: Cowardly

In the wild you will find him living primarily in the forests of the island of ARK Survival Evolved. Want one?
