Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

Fjordhawk makes its Creature Spotlight debut in the Community Crunch this week!

Fjordhawk can be a useful companion if you're able to forge a bond with one by taming it. This playful species has made a game of tasks you might find daunting. If you need to fetch something, Fjordhawk can fly to nearby targets and retrieve them for you!

Fjordhawk makes its appearance when Fjordur releases in June 2022!!

The free DLC map, Fjordjur, is right around the corner! Here's a quick summary if you're looking for the dossiers of the new creatures. Will Andrfewsarchus, Desmodus, or Fjordhawk be your first tame on Fjordur?

Serving as the first winner of the Community Creature Vote, Andrewsarchus makes its way to Fjordur packing an arsenal of utility! Andrewsarchus may seem sluggish while foraging for a meal, but they can move unexpectedly fast when provoked. Once tamed, its saddle will allow you to mount a minigun to the back of it!

Announced as the third creature to land on Fjordur, Desmodus was the second winner of the Community Creature Vote! The original creature submission garnered a lot of attention and the rest is ARK community history! Desmodus won (39,781 votes) vs. Carcharodontosaurus (24,419 votes) in the 9th and final round!

As you might imagine, Desmodus prefers to hang out in dark places, waiting for its unsuspecting prey! If you're lucky enough to tame one, you can send Desmodus to snatch up small prey or saddle up and vanish into the darkness.

Looking to dive right into the action, Fjordhawk can forge close bonds with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate. A tamed Fjordhawk is a surprisingly playful companion that is very capable of fetching targets that you point out. A well-trained Fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you.

"Happened a couple hours ago, was taming forest titan.

I begin putting all the tributes into the terminal, throwing out my mek, and activating the teleporter. Fast forwards 5 minutes, all is going well, minimal damage taken from both him to me and me to him. i take the final shot i had left in my cannon module.. direct hit! his arm falls down to the poisonous ground below. He looks at the damage i've caused, and roars. Swinging and swatting left to right at the forest wyverns like mosquitoes on a hot summers night. He takes a swing at me, shooting a large vine of roots and leaves.. my game freezes. I sit there praying i haven't crashed, fast forwards 30 seconds, all is good. I begin the shooting process until his 2nd arm snaps and falls. All that is left is one target. I begin shooting once again and he stops in his tracks, and raises his two hands, (as though he was surrendering) and stands their, allowing me to take down that final node, freezing him from the prison that was forcing him to do cruel and unspeakable things to others. He cried out in pain and freedom as he falls to the ground, unconscious. I look at my own two hands realising that i have finally taken down the forest titan. Solo. I give him a tap on the head, and he awakens, THE FOREST TITAN HAS BEEN TAMED beams onto my screen. Victory. I look at the forest titan, realising it was an alpha tame!

Next time:

The icy king yeti thingmebobwhateveridkwhattocallit becomes my personal stead into battle against the king of shadows. But will i succeed?"

I bet you were wondering if it's possible to solo tame the Extinction Titans weren't you. Syntac did our homework for us in his latest video!
