Basic Info[]


This section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena Walker, the author of the dossiers, has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creature.


Parabuteo veðrfölnir


Mid-late Anthropocene






Most of the creatures I’ve encountered here have endured thanks to their great size, strength, or ferocity. But the fjordhawk gets by on its wits and by scavenging. The bird also seems to have an almost preternatural ability to predict and avoid danger. Fjordhawks follow predators (and survivors) from on high, watching for their moment to swoop in and snatch up an easy meal.


Tamed fjordhawks are surprisingly playful, and their favorite game is fetch. Indulge your bird with this play and a bit of patience, and you’ll reap the rewards. Just point out a target, and your fjordhawk will fly off to retrieve it for you. A well-trained fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you. These clever birds will bond with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate, in a way uniquely suited to this time and place. If you should meet with some grave misfortune, your fjordhawk will immediately fly off with as many of your belongings as it can carry. As soon as you’re respawned by the ARK, your friend will track you down and return your equipment to you!


Wild fjordhawks will follow the player, approaching even from a considerable distance and circling around overhead while they wait for a kill to scavenge. They will quickly swoop in to feast on any dead creatures nearby and are very opportunistic. They may also attack small creatures in the vicinity, such as dodos, which may cause them to abandon the player they are following.

The Fjordhawk's information is currently unknown, because it is unreleased and not yet in the game.


Base Stats and Growth[]


This section describes how to fight against the fjordhawk.



Any dinosaurs, or other tame creatures will do.


A crossbow may work, or use a bow.


Fjordhawks do not possess any danger and will flee or keep circling the player/dinosaur.


Will flee when attacked and have low health.


Taming a fjordhawk is surprisingly easy. All one has to do is kill any creature near the bird and it will eat the flesh of the deceased creature, causing it to slowly tame. It should be noted that the heavier the creature is, the more efficient the taming process will be. The creature must be killed by a tame or yourself. But when the hawk feeds on it you must not be mounted on a tame.

The easiest way to tame it is to bring an Ovis to a Fjordhawk with a grappling hook and kill it on the spot.



The dossier says the fjordhawk will be able to retrieve items on death, making it invaluable in PVE and extremely helpful in PVP, though other players may be able to snipe it out of the air or some similar balancing mechanism, and steal your loot.

The way the game works with the fjordhawk is by teleporting the player's items of the tamed fjordhawk on the player's back to the next spawn location of the player, all items that the fjordhawk was able to carry is brought by the fjordhawk to your next spawn location.

The retrieved items will not actually be carried by the fjordhawk itself, but can rather be located in a bag very close to where the player respawns.

Hunting or Taming

The fjordhawk’s ability to find injured creatures will be helpful if you’ve lost a creature you’re trying to kill or tame



  • It has been announced by the Community Crunch 297[1].
  • The Fjordhawk's latin name likely refers to Veðrfölnir, a hawk from Norse mythology that is perched in between an eagle's eyes.
  • For some unknown reason, when cheating in a Fjordhawk, it will spawn at half health.
