The Yeti is a variant of the Gigantopithecus in ARK: Survival Evolved.
With the introduction of the Snow Cave, a variant of Gigantopithecus was added: these Yetis have significantly higher base stats and are untameable. Because they spawn within a Hard Difficulty cave, they are also guaranteed to spawn at exceptionally high levels - anywhere up to 500!
These apes are vicious, terrifying creatures that will decimate any adventurers hoping to step foot inside the cave. Stay clear from them, or use extremely powerful guns and weaponry to slaughter them before they get their powerful hands on you! They are very dangerous!
The Yeti always spawns with all its color regions white.
Color Scheme and Regions
This section displays the Yeti's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Yeti. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Yeti 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 Yeti's regions by entering
cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance,
cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Yeti's "fur mane" magenta.

This section describes how to fight against the Yeti.
Yetis are heavy hitters with a large pool of health. You need powerful dinos or good weapons to take them down.
Using guns is highly advised. Melee is a bad idea, but a tribe-mate with a shield can be invaluable as a decoy while the rest of the tribe shoots the Yeti. A large tribe can use multiple Fabricated Pistols to mow down a single Yeti; multiple Yetis are invulnerable to this strategy. Hanging above him with a Grappling Hook and shooting it down with Arrows and a Bow, a Crossbow or a Compound Bow is a "cheap" alternative.
It is highly advised to bring big mounts such as Rex, Spino or Therizinosaur to defeat them on The Center, as the caves containing Yetis there have entrances big enough to let them in.
Firearms (fabricated or not) will do the trick, as long as they are Apprentice level or higher. Melee will get you killed in a matter of seconds. Compound Bows do damage to him, but the ammo is a bit expensive.
It only spawns at freezing places, making Fur Armor necessary to survive, but it does not protect the player much from damage. The limited means of defense that players can utilize, plus the Yeti's devastating Melee Damage and incredibly high Health, it is, therefore, a formidable opponent, making the player an easy, sometimes one-hit, kill.
Other snow biome predators such as Dire Wolves, Purlovias, and Polar Bears also pose major threats to survivors when fighting the Yeti.
Headshots deal 3.5x more damage and are thus considered most effective.
As herbivores, they have a shorter aggro range than other creatures you may engage within the Snow Cave.
