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

Wyverns are like flying machine guns they are awesome very hard to defeat unless on the grond

Lightning wyverns can easily kill gigas with there insane dps

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

It's the wyvern but can't fly. - thatoneguy12

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

Very versatile. The Bleed effect is amazing, and the movement is amazing. If you know what you're doing you can make a rex rider look foolish.

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

The swooping ability is op

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

Awesome Creature

I love the RockDrake Because Of Its Flying Ability

13 Dodo Dodo

These things are way too OP!

Bio weapon and walking c4, its ok

14 Reaper

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

Best mount in the game

15 Pterodactyl
16 Spinosaurus Spinosaurus Spinosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in what now is North Africa, during the lower Albian to lower Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous period, about 112 to 97 million years ago.

THEY ARE amazing! though I prefer reaper... or definitely rock drake

Best all around mount. Has great health and damage, and if
using the bipodel stance, it can easily kill a T. Rex

17 Velociraptor Velociraptor Velociraptor is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period.

The raptors in ark are Utahraptors

Are amazing. their new dlc makes them one of the best early mounts. with being able to pounce, I'd put this in 6, but I don't know how! ):

18 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

19 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.

20 Karkinos

I would say that the karkinos would be one of the best for their ability to pick up mounts and with most of them having high hp but also with the ability to jump over most builds it makes them perfect.

21 Therizinosaurus Therizinosaurus

Great mount for PVP, because it swipes multiple times in one swing

22 Robbo

He is on home and away

23 Basilisk Basilisk

Their ability to burrow and the poison shot are amazing, but are way to hard to tame, unless your taming speed only takes 2 rock drake eggs. I would have this at #9.
