One of the most useful tools in your arsenal is the mighty cryopod, a device that allows you to store your tamed dinosaurs in a compact, easily transportable form. Whether you’re looking to pack up your base and move it to a new location, or just want to have a menagerie of dinos at your disposal for any situation, cryopods are an essential item for any Ark player. In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about cryopods, including how to make them, store dinosaurs in them, and even some tips and tricks to get the most out of this versatile tool.
Ark Survival Evolved: How to use the cryopod
Before you even start, you first need to unlock the Engram for cryopods by reaching level 51. Then, you can craft them from any loot crate on any map that contains the necessary materials. Once you open the inventory of the loot crate, you’ll see a “weapons” folder, which contains the cryopod recipe. You can also craft cryopods from the inventory of an obelisk, which can be found by following the beam of light to the center of the ground below the obelisk. Lastly, you can use a Tek Replicator to craft cryopods once you’ve unlocked the Engram by defeating certain bosses. It’s important to note that polymer is a necessary material for crafting cryopods, and it can be difficult to obtain.
Using the Cryopod
To use cryopods, you first need to pull them into your hotbar. Once you have the cryopod, approach the dinosaur you want to store, and use the left mouse button on the PC or the right trigger on consoles to activate the animation. Hold down the button for a few seconds until the dinosaur is inside the cryopod. Be aware that you need to be close to the dinosaur and may need to try hitting different parts to get it inside the pod. Also, remember cryopods can only be used on tamed dinosaurs. The captured dinosaur will go into the cryopod and be stored in the player’s inventory, where it can be transported to other locations. Cryopods can also be used to store and safely transport wild dinosaurs that have been tamed. However, cryopods cannot be used on unconscious wild dinosaurs or on any dinosaur that the player or tribe does not own. In the inventory menu, the cryopod will display the dinosaur’s stats and name, making it easy for the player to identify it later. But there is also a caveat, after using a cryopod, the player will receive a cryo cool-down debuff, which will prevent them from using another cryopod for a certain period of time. If the player tries to release a dinosaur from a cryopod during the debuff period, the dinosaur will be released unconscious and with a cryo sickness debuff.
When a creature is placed in a cryopod, any structures attached to it or items in its inventory are also lost. However, if the creature has a platform saddle attached to it, the saddle will respawn along with the creature whenever it is deployed from the cryopod. This mechanic opens up opportunities for players to get creative and use the platform saddle as a mini-mobile base. They can place items on it according to the needs of the situation. For example, they can place a forge on it while mining for metals, which would provide them with a mobile forge nearby to make the mining process less tedious. Once done, they can remove the forge, and then store their tame in the cryopod again. That is all for this article, we hope your doubts were cleared regarding cryopods in the game.
