Best Ark Creatures for PVP

What are some of the best creatures for PVP? This list focuses on land dinosaurs. I will make one for ocean dwellers.

The Top Ten

1 Wyvern Wyvern

The ability to fly and shoot lightning/fire/poison is a valuable skill for the Scorched Earth players. While extremely hard to steal an egg and then hatch it, it will be well worth your time, as many enemy tribes will be screaming "WYVERN! " as you ride it into battle. Watch out for enemy wyverns though. And learn to identify the different elements. - Katekat123

Wyverns are too cool to pass up. I would just force tame it though

Definitely - PBoi_N_J

Wyverns are just extremely op for PVP battles. Each of the wyverns can have specific uses. the fire wyvern is excellent for team fights as the fire can do continuous damage to a lot of people. the lightning does the most damage and will be excellent for 1v1 fights. the poison wyvern is a sniper. it can be used to defend any good base, but the rider must be accurate so that he/she doesn't kill him/herself

2 Giganotosaurus Giganotosaurus Giganotosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in what is now Argentina, during the early Cenomanian age of the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 99.6 to 97 million years ago.

The most feared land PVP mount. The only reason this beastie is behind the wyvern is because of it's lack of flying. Most tribes consider this the ultimate tame or milestone. People on rexes will run at the sight of a giga. Be warned though do not take to much damage on it or it will make you pay... - Katekat123

They are awesome no wonder they are rare. - PBoi_N_J

3 Quetzalcoatlus Quetzalcoatlus

One of the best flying PVP mounts. It's platform saddle is large enough to build a house on or put turrets on. Be careful though, a big bird means a big target. - Katekat123


4 Tapejara

This agile flying mount can carry three riders at once and maybe a fourth in its talons. The ability to land on the side of walls is valuable for raiding a redwood forest base. Watch that you don't hit its large sail on its head while shooting. - Katekat123

If you have the TEK saddle, it's game-over for your enemies. It's like a very agile Battle Plane.

Don't forget the awesome turning radius. - PBoi_N_J

5 Thylacoleo

Scale a base wall and ambush attackers from the side! This beast is why people don't fly low in the redwood anymore. The pouncing ability can hold medium animals such as a parasaur in place while slowly killing it. This makes it deadly for PVP. - Katekat123

Those things are AWESOME! - PBoi_N_J

6 Titanosaurus

One of the best tanks in ARK. They're all the way down here because it's a temporary tame the titan will not eat anything and eventually starve to death. The platform saddle is expensive but has a lot of room. If someone is using a titan to attack you they probably have a grudge against you, as taming a titan is very hard and time consuming. It is one of the only dinos that can break metal structures. - Katekat123

Yeah it sucks they don't last :( - PBoi_N_J

7 Allosaurus Allosaurus Allosaurus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur that lived 155 to 150 million years ago during the late Jurassic period.

This beast is rather useful with a large pack, as the bleeding effect is devastating and makes the target slow. Level up stamina though an allo's stamina is almost always terrible after taming. - Katekat123

They've killed one of my games before. They are bully's in the wild. - PBoi_N_J

8 Argentavis

Most people think of them as a buffed pteranodon. Only high levels are advised for PVP. But you can carry a player in its talons to shoot. - Katekat123

I recommend a decent amount of speed. Good melee. Good amount of health. Not to much stamina needed though. - PBoi_N_J

9 Griffin Griffin

The griffin is the counter to a wyvern in pvp scenarios th griffin can pick players, swoop in and swoop out, the speed of the griffin and the maneuverability is what makes this tame elite

This mount is way too op not only can you attack while diving but you can have 2 players riding it while holding one in its claws which makes it the best for taming or aerial battles

The new king of the skys! Able to outfly wyverns and makes stealing eggs a lot easier! And don't forget the OP ground pound! The utility on this creature is endless! - Katekat123

10 Pteranodon Pteranodon

An elite flyer, many people use these to "pick" other people (grab them off their mounts) can be really hard to shoot because most tamed ones have insane speed. - Katekat123

To me it should be higher than Argys. - PBoi_N_J

Argents have a better health pool though and can pick up larger targets. - Katekat123

The Contenders

11 T. Rex

One of the most basic battle mounts in the game. It mostly focuses on brute force then hit and run. Unless of course you have the tek armor. Rexes are fairly easy to tame and can be deployed in large numbers for lots of damage. - Katekat123

You know what I feel bad for the rexes because they use to be at the top. - PBoi_N_J

12 Rock Drake

Very powerful with the ability glide makes a brutally powerful PVP mount

13 Direwolf

One of the best and fastest land war mount the wolf is fast enough to keep up with any player and if you tame a high level and pump straight health and melee a pack of these can and will take out anyone

Breed high levels direwolves. You won't be sorry

14 Baryonyx Baryonyx

Very good for land and sea attacks, has a very good ability to stun anything in the water for a short time making enemy sea creatures easier to kill.

15 Reaper

It can jump over enemy walls force flyers to land and can easily kill a giga
