The Aberration expansion pack for ARK has released a ton of new content for players to devour. One of the newer things that has been released is the tameable creature known as Bulbdog. Players might be aware of its existence but catching it is a completely different animal. This ARK Aberration Guide will tell you how you can easily locate Bulbdog and tame it for your own personal use.
Where to Find and Tame Bulbdog in ARK Aberration
The Bulbdog is a passive dinosaur and you need to follow it around and feed it raw meat until it’s tamed. It can be found all over the place in the mushroom forest, so chances are that you will have already seen it. Taming it is also surprisingly easy and you can tame your first Bulbdog in just a few minutes.
It has 700 Health and has new stats such as Charge Capacity that allows you to shine a light, which can work as a portable torch that never runs out.
Along with this, there are numerous other features which the Bulbdog possesses. Considering how easy it is to catch a Bulbdog, the amount of stuff that he gives you makes him incredibly efficient.
Let us take a look at how you can find the Bulbdog and tame it.
Finding and Taming a Bulbdog
As we mentioned before, Bulbdogs can be found in abundance over the terrain and it should not be hard for you to locate one. Just keep moving around until you see the tiny passive dinosaur and then begin the process of taming it.
Taming them is actually quite simple. All you need to do is to find the Aquatic Mushroom, which can be found in the mushroom patches on the Aberration map. Just keep on looking for various different mushrooms until you stumble upon the one that you need. Now we can move on to the next phase of the guide.
Now that you have the Aquatic Mushrooms, you put them into your tenth slot. Now get up to the Bulbdog and press ‘E’ to tame it. That is pretty much all that you have to do. Now you have a shoulder mounted torch and you are free to do whatever it is that you wish to do! Remember to feed it raw meat as you do not want it to die though.
If you’re having a hard time finding Aquatic Mushrooms, you can tame the Bulbdog using meat or certain kinds of seeds.
If you want, you can construct a small building around the Bulbdog so you won’t have to follow it all around the place, or you could put it in a pen using a flying mount.
Once you tame the Bulbdog, adventuring around the map will become a bit safer because of the light it emits. Though, this light has to be charged by creatures like the Glowbugs.
A helpful mechanic of the Bulbdog’s light is that it scares off the Nameless, which can summon the Reaper King if they gang up on you.
Apart from itself, the Bulbdog will also use the light find max level creatures in the nearby area and enemy players. Both of these features are automatically enabled
