The Lasso is a ranged weapon in ARK: Survival Evolved.
The Lasso can be used to drag around both unconscious and conscious creatures.
Although it inflicts 1.4 times as much torpor as damage (i.e. 14 torpor base), it is not an effective means of knocking out a creature, nor of keeping one unconscious for a long journey.
The lasso can also be used to gather certain resources and to collect dropped items and loot bags from a distance by pulling them towards the rider; it does not collect such items automatically.
The lasso can drag creatures from the following list.
- Terror Bird
(More to be added)
- Creatures do not lose taming effectiveness due to being dragged (tested with a Sabertooth on Ragnarok that was starve taming)
- Creatures do not aggro when being lassoed. Amazing starter tames for keeping tames safe. With two people this can be used to prevent a bird from running.
- Lassos unlike the Bola can be used underwater and can drag submerged knockouts out of the water or creatures like the Otter for easier taming.
