Overview[]

The Slingshot is the first ranged weapon available to players in ARK: Survival Evolved. It's a short-to-medium range weapon that uses Stones for ammo. Compared to other weapons, it's most notable for its ability to inflict TorporTorpidity.png, making it ideal for early tamers.

Usage[]

Slingshots are used to inflict Torpor from a distance. A successful shot will inflict 1.35 times the dealt damage in Torpor (i.e. 18.9 points of Torpor for the primitive version and fully charged) onto your target, while only dealing a low amount of damage. This is perfect for safely immobilizing small creatures and players. Once unconscious, creatures are defenseless, and are able to be tamed or killed.

It is most effective if used for headshots.

Notes/Tips[]

  • Holding the 'Alt Fire' button (default Rmb) will put the Slingshot in front of the player's camera along with zooming in slightly, allowing for slightly better aiming at the cost of reduced movement speed.
  • The Slingshot has an incredibly short drop-off range, so it's advised to aim high in most instances.
  • The Slingshot is useful for early-game hunters to help take down dangerous prey without getting too close.
  • This is a great ranged weapon for beginners. The ammo is cheap and easy to acquire, and its damage is low compared to other ranged weapons, reducing messy friendly-fire accidents.
