Reaper Pheromone Gland is an item in the Aberration-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved. It is gathered by accessing the inventory of a deceased Wild Reaper Queen Reaper Queen.


It is used to summon the Aberration Boss.

It can also be consumed by players and dinos to grant the Pheromone buff for 300 seconds (effect stacks with each consumption). It prevents baby Reaper King Reaper King from targeting the survivor/creature or dealing damage to them unless it is already targeting something nearby, or carried on the survivor's shoulder. Baby Reapers cannot be controlled in any way until they’ve reached their Juvenile stage, meaning they will lash out at anyone and anything without the buff. The only exception to receiving damage is if it’s already attacking another nearby survivor without the gland effect.


You get this from killing a Reaper Queen.

It's retrieved from the inventory when killed. The amount is randomized from 4 to 5 Glands.


  • The gland, when consumed, emits the same particle effect as that of Bug Repellant Bug Repellant
  • Prior to 278, it was mandatory to use it in order to imprint a Reaper King Reaper King baby.
