Ark Scorched Earth Organic Polymer Locations

In Ark scorched Earth, Organic Polymer is a natural resource that can be used as a direct replacement for Polymer in crafting.

Organic Polymer can be obtained by harvesting dead Mantis, though it may also be collected by harvesting certain plants and may even drop as loot from Deathworms.

Organic Polymer is most notably used in crafting the Ghillie Suit, which will help survive the intense heat and reduce the visibility against creatures. In addition, Organic Polymer may be used to make any item with regular Polymer in its crafting recipe.

Unlike regular Polymer, Organic Polymer has a spoil timer of 30 minutes, and leaving it in the Achatina can increase this time to 1hr 30mins.

The following guide will help you farm more Organic Polymer and discuss the best locations in Ark Scorched Earth.

Ark Scorched Earth Organic Polymer Locations

Organic Polymer can be harvested from a few creatures in Ark Survival Evolved; however, in Ark Scorched Earth, the only creature that drops Organic Polymer is the Mantis.

So, the best way to obtain this resource is to locate, kill and harvest Mantis. A Pick or Hatchet of either metal or stone, Wooden Club, or Metal Sword may be used for harvesting.

Using the Club and Sword does increase the yield of the Organic Polymer. Carnivore tames may also be used for the harvesting process.

Mantis can spawn in only two types of locations: caves and deserts. There isn’t a shortage of deserts in Ark Scorched Earth, so finding Mantis shouldn’t be too difficult.

The map below shows all the Mantis spawn points on the Ark Scorched Earth map.
