These creatures are the elemental versions of their counterparts, each having their own abilities and thereby specialties. They also have their own strengths and weaknesses in leveling up. They provide the best variety for every survivor’s needs for every situation, from the beginning to the end.
- FIRE : The Fire Badass excels in Melee, but gains less Health in the process of leveling up. It deals a Fire debuff to it’s targets which burns them for 200% instant melee damage to Health over 1 second time. They also grant any nearby players (of the same tribe) a "Fire Symbol" buff that increases their body heat when in colder climates, allowing players to last longer in the cold before contracting Hypothermia.
- FROST : The Frost Badass excels in Speed, but gains less Health in the process of leveling up. It deals a Frost debuff to it’s targets which freezes them for 100% instant melee damage to Health over 1 second time, while also applying 20% additional melee damage to Stamina. Like the Fire, they apply a "Cold Symbol" buff allowing them to last longer in hotter climates before overheating.
- POISON : The Poison Badass excels in Health, but gains less Stamina in the process of leveling up. It deals a Torpor debuff to it’s targets which poisons them for 600% instant melee damage, with an additional 100-200% torpidity (Depending on Server Settings) as melee damage over 1 second.
- ROCK : The Rock Badass excels in Melee, but gains less Speed in the process of leveling up. It deals no elemental damage, but can demolish stone structures with relative ease. With their secondary attack they can harvest more resources. It’s also able to knock it’s enemies further away when attacking them.
In Addition these creatures can be found in different places. Rock prefers more mountainous regions while Poison and Fire are found in warmer climates and along beaches. Frost appears all over the map but favors colder regions.

These creatures can only be tamed aggressively, but because of their Badass Status, their torpor drains quicker than their original counterpart. Bring many narcotics if you wish to tame them.
Golden and Silver treats will work on them as well.
Certain mods can drain torpor and food from the target - such as the "Super Tranq Rifle" mod - allow for easier and faster taming, however, it is advised to take extra narcotics and food to help tame and keep the animal(s) unconcious.
When breeding Badass creatures, they follow the same rules as normal dinosaurs except for the fact that one elemental cannot breed with a different type of elemental. For instance you can only breed Rock with Rock or Fire with Fire. It is not possible at this time to breed Rock with Fire.
