Similar to Mosasaurus, the Alpha Mosasaurus wanders around the deep ocean and always waits for some careless humans to traverse. Its natural personality is mostly the same, it starts swimming around a common location and it keeps doing so until it catches sight of a survivor or a domesticated dinosaur, after that, it will try to assault that trespasser. But, the Alpha Mosasaurs is kind of tenacious a bit when chasing, and it is able to chase the player shortly into shallower water than Mosasaurus.
The size of Alpha Mosasaurs is kind of bigger than Mosasaurus. It is in white, black and red. Similar to other Alpha Predators, it shows a unique fiery red fog that you can catch sight of from afar, even when you’re under the water and have no scuba mask on.

An Alpha Mosasaurus at a low level (1-20) is not suitable for a strong domesticated Mosasaurus with a nice saddle. If a player utilizes a mount, he/she is able to take down the Alpha. Utilizing Plesiosaurus can be a good way, you can assault with a squad, watch over their stamina and be prepared for raising up to cure. Using a unit of sharks is a good method too, but you may have to bear an accident.
Conversely, an Alpha at level 21 and above probably needs weakness prior to being taken down by a domesticated Mosasaurs. You should try to plan out nice strategies and coordination with other tribe mates in order to defeat the highest level Alphas because their stamina and damage develop very fast.
You don’t have to prepare many strategies for dealing with a low-level Alpha Mosasaurs, especially if you have enough strong sea force or you already have a strong domesticated Mosasaur. You should stay watchful for the Alphas’ wide bite location, they are possible to demolish many your tamed creatures instantly if you utilize a dogpile tactic. If you have no strong sea mounts, you can try to cut one down by tempting it to a sea cave and then you can find a shelter to stay in and make sure that it won’t be able to approach you. This can be a risky tactic because the Alpha may lose its interest and can be tempted back to its cave.
If you want to tame high-level Alphas, make sure you prepare extensive strategies. If you select a dinosaur-based attack, you should harmonize some roles, like damage, tanks and bring enough meat to tanks for healing. If you’re well-prepared, you can heal your squad fast. The Alpha Mosasaurus won’t cure and regain health fast enough to get through a persistent hit-and-run tactic. Try to stay watchful for all surroundings too!
Utilizing ranged weapons to defeat high-level Alpha Mosasaurs won’t be effective much because of their massive health pools that require extensive resources for destroying them.
Using one Megalodon can be a good way to defeat an Alpha Mosasaur. At first, you should confront with the Mosasaur. After that, you should reach the back of its neck after it takes its mouth out of you. Later, you must rotate to let the tail of your shark turn away from the mouth of Mosasaur. Doing so will help you attack the Mosasaur while it keeps trying to assault you. It will stay unmoved and make an effort to chew you. You should continue assaulting and take a rest for a bit if you want.
Destroying an Alpha Mosasaurus by using a Manta is a helpful way too. You just swim and move on it while trying to assault. Finally, the Alpha Mosasaurs won’t be able to move up further, take that chance to assault it when it tries to move down. Do it over and over again until you totally take it down.
You shouldn’t use melee weaponry to assault the Alpha Mosasaurus. It won’t bring you a good result.
If you choose ranged weapons, then it will be a long time to use the strong crossbows for killing it.
The only effective weapon that can be used to take down the Alpha Mosasaurus is Dinosaurs.
Alpha Mosasaurus are found deep underwater! So you will be in danger when you bump into this kind of creature, and coming across this one will bring the same risks as any underwater lodge.
Local inhabitants of the deep sea like Plesiosaur, Mosasaurus, and Angler.
If utilizing a cave for evading, Eurypterids probably generate therein occasionally.
When staying underwater, some unprepared players may get frozen fast, particularly when they are in the Snow Biome.
Suffocation is always dangerous, particularly if a survivor gets bitten by the Alpha. Its one bite is sufficient to demolish most of the scuba gear. Even if you get through that, you probably won’t last long.
The Alpha Mosasaurus is also considered as a nice source of Black Pearls. For that reason, the tribes will try to compete against each other to collect those black pearls.
The Alpha Mosasaurus will shortly chase down its prey and get them into the shallower water zones. You should try to move forward while after you rise up lest the Alpha defeat one of your domesticated creatures.
Just like other Mosasaurs, the turning radius of Alpha is kind of low. But, because they have massive HP and damage, you shouldn’t try and make use of this to kite them. But, you can use it to run away if you find your mount bitten out under Alpha Mosasaurus won’t be able to enter the caves because it’s can’t fit. The big units of domesticated dinosaurs can use melee range to destroy the Alpha Mosasaurus fast and easily because of its big body size.
Alpha Mosasaurus is known as the initial aquatic Alpha creature that was launched in ARK game. Similar to other Alphas, it is kind of quick and all survivors are recommended to avoid it, unless if you bring enough tames and nice gear, or other powerful equipment to bring it down.
Grants the Mosasaurus dossier when destroyed.
When the survivors are underwater and they have no scuba mask on, the red fog released from the Alpha Mosasaurus possesses a green tint to it.
