In the ARK Extinction Forest Titan Taming Guide below, we will look at the approach you need for taming the Forest Titan including valuable equipment and use of resources.
ARK Extinction Forest Titan Taming
There is no taming before you can actually put a fight against the titan. For that, you will need a module that buffs your primary firearm.
This purpose is fulfilled by the Mek Siege Cannon Module… and lots of them. Additionally, you will need a tonne of artillery Cannon Shells.
For first summoning the creature, you will need to offer certain items at an altar located in a cave at 11.8 latitude and 39.3 longitude. The altar is direct across from the artifact located here.
The items you will need to provide for the Forest Titan summon are as below:
- x100 Corrupt Hearts: Obtained by eliminating Corrupt Creatures around the map.
- x10 Tyrannosaurus Arms: Collected as loot from corpses of Rex dinosaurs.
- x10 Sauropod Vertebra: Collected as loot from corpses of Brontosaurus, Diplodocus or Titanosaur.
- x1 Artifact of Growth: Within the cave, you can find the artifact at 13.5 latitude and 49.2 longitude.
Now the first step in the procedure is to start attacking the titan at the corrupted nodes. These are glowing blue dynamic spores on each arm of the Forest Titan. Just keep utilizing the Cannon Shell projectiles on your mech suit for maximum damage.
After getting rid of the nodes at the Forest Titan’s arms, a new one will emerge under his chin. Use the same strategy and focus your attacks at this particular corrupted node.
After you have brought down this node as well, you can move in closer to tame the Forest Titan, Kaijui and ride it. Alternatively, you could have utilized some tamed dinosaurs to do the job for you.
We recommend quick ones that can avoid the slow attacks of the Forest Titan. Some good firearms for long ranged damage include Assault Rifle and Tek Rifle.
However, that will not be as effective as the Cannon Shells and may take you a long time to bring the Forest Titan down.
What Can the Titan Do?
The titan’s health will lie at the point after its fight and the damage it incurred so it is safe to say the creature will not be at its full potential. In addition to its primary attack, it has an area of an effect-type move.
It can also defend itself by sprouting roots outwards for protection when you press the Space key. The Titan has little mobility but it makes up for it in terms of the range of attack and damage.
