The Transponder Tracker can track all Transponder Nodes. Equip the Tracker in your hand with Transponder Nodes in your Inventory. Stay near a Player or Dino (tamed or untamed) and attach it.


  • Once a Transponder Node is attached to the desired target, right-click to use the Transponder Tracker and display a green message on your screen with the heading and distance of the attached target. Example screenshot: Message
  • The Transponder Node attaches to a target in the same fashion that a C4 charge does. Throw it a short distance to place it. Example screenshot: Node
  • The frequency may be changed by using the "N" key or RB for Xbox by default, and can allow for more specific tracking.
  • The default frequency for the Transponder Tracker is 70.
