The Potent Narcotic is an item in ARK: Survival Evolved from mod Primal Fear. It can be used to keep dinosaurs unconscious during Taming.

Upon consumption, Narcotics increase the Torpor of a survivor or creature by 360, which is 9x more than normal narcotics.


Narcotics are primarily used in the Taming process to keep dinosaurs unconscious. This is done by putting the Potent Narcotic in the creatures inventory, selecting it, and pressing the Use key (E, Y, Triangle). The creature's torpidity will then rise by a total of 360 over the next 8 seconds. This process can be used against an unconscious player for the same effect. Potent Narcotics, like Narcotic and Narcoberry do not affect the Taming Effectiveness.
