If you are tired of using standard Grenade, now you can experience TEK Grenade to keep track of your target then deal more damage to it after a short period of time.
Thanks to the TEK Cloning Chamber, now it’s easy for all survivors to copy their preferred creatures for the price of Element Shards. All of the creatures will be able to jeep their appearance, level as well as stats.
About the TEK tier content, this is known as features at the end of the game that will bring lots of unique and nice futuristic gears and guns to the conscientious survivors. If you want to have TEK Tier loot, you need to collect the recently released Element resource by finishing Boss Arenas, or you have to gather better version Element Shards by crushing element or crafting at TEK Replicator. There are three difficulty levels for every single boss, including Gamma, Beta, and Alpha. The players will receive exclusive TEK Knowledge engrams, new elements, as well as more other Boss Rewards once beating the specific boss. You need to amass the Element, make a good use of the TEK Replicator then you can create a bunch of TEK items.
Apis Lithohermaea is also known as Giant Bee that can be seen in the Redwoods, the cliffsides full of rocks of the Island or even the Canyons of Scorched Earth. This bee never wanders off away from its nest. You can even see a lot of drones roaming around the nest, but if you want to look at the Queen Apis, you will have to break open the nest by using your tactics and skills. You won’t be able to domesticate the drones because they are very territorial and they are willing to do anything to defend their Queen. After domesticating the Queen, she will lay several drone eggs then build up a hive for you to harvest lots of tasty honey. Lots of creatures in the game will be very attractive to the sweet and delicious honey. Using the honey will help the hunters bait the traps and tempt the wild creatures effortlessly.
Daeodon Comedentis is the biggest kind of Entelodont which can be called “Hell Pigs” sometimes. These creatures are extremely territorial and they will do something to deal with the survivors that move closer to their feeding grounds. You can totally catch sight of these creatures around the dried grasslands, or the sandy beaches of the island. Some tribes tamed Daeodon and they made a good use of it for their own sakes. This creature has a high metabolism so it’s able to cure itself, and this fast regeneration can have an influence on the surrounding allies. Hence, Daedon is mostly used by the tribes to attack other hunting packs or wicked bosses.
Liopleurodon Magicus is an amazing type of creature that has lots of magical belongings, according to what some tribes of the island stated. But, because of the rare sightings, it is very difficult to decode and unravel all tales of the tribes to check out if they are right or wrong. But anyway, some survivors said that this creature had a capability to award the brave survivors that domesticated it. To most of the tribes that always hunt for the treasures, they have utilized the magic to collect loots. Some survivors must be very curious about these tales, and lots of people stated that the magic of this creature was very strong. It can’t be controlled and kept by anyone, but if it’s under control, after a while, it employs this strength to escape away.
Kentrosaurus Aethiopicus is known as a smaller herbivore than the Stegosaurus Regium. Even though it doesn’t have big size, its formidability totally makes up for that. When Kentrosaurus engages in crowded battles, it always ranks above other herbivorous dinosaurs of the entire island. Some survivors don’t have big success when trying to ride the Kentrosaurus due to its headstrong temperament. However, a domesticated flock of Kentrosaurus is able to protect a camp and deal with lots of other bigger carnivores. Just swinging its dangerous tail once is strong enough to stab other creatures. The dangers in the battle, like a spiky enemy, are inevitable.
The Volcano Redesign and the TEK Cave!
In the patch 257, the Volcano eventually owns the scorching redesign. Once it makes an arrival at this destination on the island, the survivors will catch sight of an immobile volcano and the entryway to TEK Cave. It will be so hard to get through this scorching tough cave where there are lots of the most dangerous enemies there. When finishing the cave with various difficulties, the survivors will climb up.
