How to Find Fenrisulfr in ARK: Fjordur

Fenrisulfr Requirements

Fenrisulfr can be summoned at one of the three Obelisks. The blue one is located at coordinates 74.40 - 07.90 (indicated by the blue marker on the map above).

But in order to summon the boss you need to offer three boss trophies, including:

  • Megapithecus Trophy.
  • Broodmother Trophy.
  • Dragon Trophy.

In order to obtain all three trophies you must first defeat the three bosses.

Megapithecus Location

  • Coordinates: 56.60 - 84.60

The summoning terminal for Megapithecus can be found inside the cave indicated by the yellow marker on the map above.

The boss can be summoned after crafting his engram at the terminal, which requires the following materials:

  • 1 Artifact of the Brute.
  • 1 Artifact of the Devourer.
  • 1 Artifact of the Pack.
  • 10 Megalania Toxin.
  • 10 Megalodon Tooth.
  • 10 Spinosaurus Sail.
  • 1 Steinbjorn Relic.
  • 10 Therizino Claws.
  • 10 Thylacoleo Hook-Claw.

Megapithecus is the weakest of the three bosses, who can be easily defeated using the following mounts:

  • Yutyrannus.
  • Rex.
  • Daeodon.
  • Kentrosaurus.
  • Allosaurus.
  • Deinonychus.
  • Woolly Rhino.

Once defeated Megapithecus will drop the following items:

  • 220 Element.
  • 1 Gorilla Flag.
  • 1 Megapithecus Trophy.

Broodmother Location

  • Coordinates: 57.30 - 65.80

Broodmother can be found inside the cave indicated by the green marker on the map above.

You can find more information about her location, as well as tips on how to defeat her in our Broodmother guide.

Dragon Boss Location

  • Coordinates: 82.90 - 21.20

The Dragon boss can be found inside the cave indicated by the red marker on the map above.

Recommended Mounts

Although Fenrisulfr is the strongest boss of all in Fjordur, taking into account that the Alpha version has 1.2 million HP, it doesn't require players to bring too many mounts to this fight. All you need is to bring the right ones, including:

  • Deinonychus.
  • Rex.
  • Tek Rex.
  • Yutyrannus.
  • Daeodon.

Bring as many of these mounts as you can, the more the better. But focus mostly on Deinonychus and the Rexes.

Best Strategy

The battle takes place on a rather cold arena, where the temperature drops below 30 degrees, so equip Fur armor or something to withstand the freezing environment.

Fenrisulfr requires a very strict strategy, or he will overpower you with his strength. Follow these general tips:

  • Deinonychus mounts have a particularly high rate of bleed damage, which is devastating to this boss.
  • Since Fenrisulfr has many unexpected and strong attacks, you will need a Rex to be able to block these attacks effectively.
  • Tek Rexes are needed for group offense, which will come in handy once Fenrisulfr takes a step back.
  • Use Daeodon to heal yourself and other mounts.

During this fight you must focus on keeping distance from an attacking Fenrisulfr, but you need to push the advantage once he retreats for a moment.

This boss is highly fast and mobile, so send all your Rexes at Fenrisulfr and make them surround the boss. This will block his movements, so you can start pasting him with your firearms much more effectively.

Rinse and repeat this strategy until you deplete his enormous HP pool, and Fenrisulfr will be finally defeated.

Fenrisulfr Rewards

Once Fenrisulfr drops dead, you can pick up the following items:

  • 500 Element.
  • 1 Cryopod.
  • 1 Fenrisulfr Flag.
  • 1 Fenrisulfr Trophy.

Note that the Cryopod contains a Fenrir creature, which is a unique mount in ARK: Fjordur. The highest possible level of Fenrir is 225, which can be obtained after defeating the Alpha Fenrisulfr.
