Ark: Survival Evolved – Aberration | How To Find And Tame Karkinos

Ark: Survival Evolved, developed by Studio  Wildcard, is an action-adventure survival video game. Players are tossed into an island that is filled with all sorts of hazards such as other human players to free roaming dinosaurs.

The overall goal is simple, yet a difficult one within this game world, as players are tasked with surviving in the hostile environment while completing challenges and taming the free roaming beasts. During the journey, players will scavenge resources, craft weapons, fight off the various hazards and build a base. Recently, the video game received its latest DLC known as Aberration.

Within Aberration players will find themselves on a damaged ARK which results in a slew of new hazards, environments, and of course, creatures to tame. Likewise, developers have introduced new items to craft along with challenges to master.

How To Tame

The Krakinos will require a trap to be tamed. You’ll want to set a bear trap up along with structures around it so that once caught, the creature would not be able to easily escape. Players should set the trap up and lure a Krakinos into it.

Once caught, players will need to hit it over the head until it’s tame. Remember to not strike the claws as it will kill the animal.
