Alpha Carno

The Alpha Carno belongs to the group of Alpha Predators that turns up in ARK . It’s known as an aggressive creature that is kind of large and can bring threats to the survivors around. Fighting against this one or taming it always needs a good strategy. Let’s explore its wildlife and other good info now!

Basic Info

The Alpha Carno is considered as the larger variant of Carno which is generated in the Inland. They have super strength and are able to develop their damage, as well as the resistance of a certain untamed carnivore around. They also have a crucial risk to the survivors who are not ready to come across one. You can’t defeat Alpha Predators.

Beating an Alpha Carno will bring numerous XP and a Rex Bone Helmet to the players. In addition, they sometimes release recipes, some amazing weapons, armor and other different items.

Alpha Carnos don’t release usual raw meat when being harvested. They will offer a bunch of Raw Prime Meat instead.


Alpha Carnos are kind of hostile and willing to launch their attack to the players or other creatures when they catch sight of. They use their headbutt assault which can help them pull the players or other creatures off the cliffs.


The size of Alpha Carno is roughly 1.5 of a usual Carno. These creatures have the similar color palette, but it has a darker shade. There is a red aura that shines around them, and this feature makes them discrepant from other usual counterparts.

Let’s learn some strategies to battle against the Alpha Carno


The Alpha Carno is a very dangerous predator, but it’s worth to knock it out because it grants a bunch of XP. Try to use any possible resources you have, such as more tribe members, strong mounts and of course, your most powerful weapons.


By executing a ranged fight, you will be able to dodge the heavy damage. If you don’t choose that way, you can use guerrilla strategies along with a fast mount. A Rex or Spinosaur that has large health, stamina, or damage will be able to battle against the Alpha Carno that has the same level or even lower level. An Alpha Carno can get knocked out if it’s battling against the domesticated Giganotosaurus. However, you should be aware of the rage meter when fighting.


Ranged weapons will be the best option! The strong mounts are able to change the fight against it! Convening it with the creatures will help the player run away or assault.


Thanks to its damage, health, and speed, the Alpha Carno becomes a notorious merciless predator. You should let it approach your livestock. A strong and determined Alpha Carno is able to swallow through rocks, stone walls, and much more. Therefore, you have to put your creatures away from any barrier to prevent it from refreshing its hostility to snatch them up.


The Alpha Carno swims at a slow speed. It’s preferable to take the fight to the water, particularly if a strong water mount, just like a Mosasaur, for instance, is able to be utilized. The Alpha Carno is not able to dive, so it’s good for you to swab from below.


The Alpha Carno was launched in patch 194.0

There will be other Alphas, such as the Alpha Rex, and the Alpha Raptor.

The increase of damage and resistance that it brings to the carnivores nearby can be viewed as an up arrow with a “+” of the arrow.
