How to make kibble in Ark: Survival Evolved

It’s like kibble for your dogs, but not.

One of the best things about Ark Survival Evolved is that players can tame a wide array of different dinosaurs and keep them around their homes. Whether you’re using them for combat, gathering, or just because you want a unicorn in the base, there’s no doubt that Ark’s dinos are the star of the show.

Taming dinosaurs used to be a simple matter of knocking out the dinosaur and shoving some food into its inventory. These days, it’s much the same; however, veteran PvP players and those PvE players obsessed with perfection know that Kibble is a Survivors best friend. While using Mutton or Berries can be helpful in a pinch, it often takes a lot of these resources to complete a tame. Kibble allows players to quickly and perfectly tame the dinosaur, meaning that the stats it will come out with will be top tier.

Kibble Types

There are six different types of Kibble, and the dinosaur you’re taming will dictate the level of Kibble you’ll need. Of course, the simplest option is always to use the top tier of Kibble, but as it’s the most expensive to make in the beginning phases of the game, it’s not always the easiest option. To craft Kibble, you’ll need either a Cooking Pot, or an Industrial Cooking Pot. These are the types of Kibble, and the resources you’ll need to craft them:
