The Alpha Surface Reaper King is one of the Alpha Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved Aberration.

Basic Info


The Alpha Reaper King is highly aggressive, more so than that of its non-alpha variant. It will only emerge at night, similar to that of the regular version (although more rare).


Alpha Surface Reaper King is larger than the  Reaper Queen, naturally spawning with an albino outer shell, interior red flesh and sporting a glowing red aura around them. However, this aura cannot be seen while they are underground.

Color Scheme and Regions

The Alpha Surface Reaper King always spawns with the same color scheme and has no color regions.

This means it is currently impossible to make alterations to the Alpha Surface Reaper King's colors.

Alpha Surface Reaper Kings are known to bury towards safety when they reached a certain health, and emerges far away from the player.


Use Rock Drakes but make sure the player is hidden then use any damaging weapon. But the best tame to use is the Reaper, even with a queen level 56 a reaper can get 75 levels and potentially reach 46k health in few level ups, and one can be used to kill a low level Alpha Surface Reaper King.


For tribes, it is recommended to bring at least 2 mid to high level  Rock Drakes. Alternatively, one could bring a soaker dino via  Karkinos, though its recommended to keep the crab away from the battle since it is relatively frail for its size.

Solo players should take a high level Rock Drake or  Reaper King, and always have an escape plan. It is unwise to put yourself in a position to be cornered by an Alpha Reaper, so be sure to clear out the surrounding reapers from the area you’re fighting in.

Don’t forget that even the mighty Alpha Reaper King is vulnerable to Charge Lights, so be sure to bring a Charge Light Creature to lower its defense!

With the arrival of Extinction, a lot of very strong creatures appeared, including the Velonasaur, Managarmr and Titans. A team of 1 tanker and 3 mounted Velonasaurs would do a quick work of an alpha reaper as long as you keep it under charge light. One could also solo an alpha reaper with a well imprinted, heavily mutated health, stamina and damage Managarmr.


It is extremely fast, equivalent to 460% survivor movement speed. In some situations it is even faster than Rock Drakes


Unlike Nameless and regular Reaper King/Queen, Alpha Surface Reaper King/Queen does not have any known weakness excluding from Charge Light.

Alpha Surface Reaper King hits much lighter than a normal Surface Reaper King, making the fight more attrition-style than a meeting engagement.



  • With Aberration DLC release, Alpha Surface Reaper King boasts one of the few highest stat for the entirety of Alpha Creatures even at level 1, surpassing both  Alpha Tusoteuthis and  Alpha Deathworm, but not  Alpha Mosasaur
  • If forced tamed, the Alpha Surface Reaper King will bury itself and disappear after a certain period of time. This can be prevented, whistle the Alpha Surface Reaper King to follow you and bury it, then change the time of day to Day time, (If you have access to console commands) the Alpha Surface Reaper King will follow you from under the ground. Then make it burrow off of a cliff and it will suddenly appear above ground. If done correctly, the Alpha Surface Reaper King will stay above ground, no matter what time of day it is and will never despawn.
