Defeating Megapitheus in ARK Survival Ascended can be a challenging task. You must know the boss’s moves and the tames you need to take beforehand. Even though the Megapithecus is considered one of the easier bosses in the game, defeating it can be challenging.

The boss is not the only source of danger either. One aspect that can make the battle more challenging is the cold since it can cause various difficulties for you like hypothermia. The Megapithecus battle arena also has various environmental hazards, such as big gaps in the arena that can kill you or a tame from fall damage.

The boss has a powerful set of moves that you must avoid to take it down. You'll need to recognize and avoid its attacks to prevent getting dismounted from your tame while attacking it with all of your other dinos. Ride a strong tame and stay far away while making your other tames fight for you.

You can take Yutyrannus, Rexes, Therizino, and Allosaurus to the battle. All of these have great attacking capabilities and have buffs that increase the attacks of allies, making them a great choice for the battle. Constantly attacking this boss and avoiding its attack is the key to winning this battle.

You can also take an Otter with you to protect you from the cold as they provide insulation.

Taming creatures in Survival of the Fittest works differently than taming creatures in the main game. You must spend points to tame creatures in this game mode. You can earn these points by surviving or by taking down dinos. Killing stronger dinos offers more points that you can use to tame other monsters.

Bosses such as Megapithecus in the game mode can only be summoned once and cost more points. Once you’ve collected enough points to summon the boss (about 400 points), go to the summoning area, which can be located on the map. After reaching the Megapithecus summoning area, you’ll see a large tower-like structure. You need to approach it and then interact with it to summon the boss.

Once summoned, you can ride the Megapithecus and take your enemies down easily in the ARK: Survival of The Fittest game mode.
