Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Brute Astrocetus's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Brute Astrocetus. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Brute Astrocetus will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

This information can be used to alter the Brute Astrocetus's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Brute Astrocetus's "wing edges" magenta.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding stats with an external tool.[1]

The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.


This section describes how to fight against the Brute Astrocetus.


The Brute Astrocetus is encountered in the mission "A Captain's Conquest" which is on the Lunar biome. It is simply a larger Astrocetus. It has an average of 35,000 health which makes it quite weak for brute standards. In the last part of the hunt it is assisted by four Brute Seekers. It may seem weak at first in Alpha difficulty but however the closer you get to its mouth the more attack it can do, for example at the tip it can only >700 which is weak BUT as you get close it can rain down <6,900 damage in one hit.


The Brute Astrocetus can easily be worn down with standard munitions from afar. Jumping around with a Bloodstalker through the lunar biome's low gravity makes it nearly impossible for the Brute Astrocetus to attack, just make sure you keep it in the general area you're supposed to fight it. Even up close its melee isn't the strongest and can be fought with ground troops such as a few Rexes.

in Alpha the bloodstalker strategy might take too long and, as mentioned above, it can turn the fight around as you get close to the mouth.


Any high-damage ranged weapon would suffice in wearing it down, though the Pump-Action Shotgun can deal the highest due to the Brute Astrocetus being so large. Usable creatures would be your standard war mounts such as a Rex, though jumping around with a Bloodstalker with your weapons is also a good strategy. A giga cant be used due to its rage ability.


The Brute Astrocetus can cause some strong knockback with its attacks which can possibly throw you into space. Without a fast way up to where you normally fight it this can ruin your hunt due to time restrictions.

unlike most brutes the brute astrocetus treats the seekers like its own kind and will get angry and attack you if you hit the seekers or they hit you.

if you drive them too far away they will teleport back with full health.


The Brute Astrocetus is large and slow, and both its damage output and health aren't much compared to the other brute creatures, except on alpha.
