The Stream Team: ARK’s bees, glorious bees

OK, so maybe ARK’s bees aren’t exactly glorious. In fact, they are downright pesky and dangerous — especially as a swarm. But they do have honey, and that sweet nectar is worth going after. Massively OP’s MJ is out to try to tame a queen bee to start her own honey production. She might even be able to spot a few more of the new creatures inhabiting the island. Tune in live at 10:00 a.m. as MJ tries her hand at beekeeping (and catching).

Dunno why you guys don’t use a mod like Death Helper, you spend so much time hunting down your glitched corpses…


I believe they still run a no-mods close to base server as they can.

These days I can’t play without Structures Plus (S+). Basically it adds all the best parts of Conan Exiles building system into ARK. Triangles are love. Triangles are life.


Best way to do the bees is go the canyons that spawn them literally all over the map. I prefer the ones just NW of Red Woods. Then use a dino like a Rex or Wyvern that can reach it and bring the hive under 1000. After that back up, use a Longneck Rifle on the Hives. Shoot, hop on Rex, kill incoming, fire again, repeat till Hive open. Walk up after (Ghillie and Bug Repellant) and Icthyronis Kibble tame the Queen and done. Convert to Hive and walk away with the honey factory.

I’ve not yet encountered Bees, but I recounted recently a titanic battle I’d witnessed between a hulking stegosaurus and a large bipedal carnivorous bird, likely gastornis. The stego won the fight, but was significantly bloodied. After victory he stood over his fallen enemy and posed for a nice super-resolution picture using Nvidia ANSEL. Here is that moment captured forever (96mb picture so let it load and rez in fully to see the incredible detail):

Even better though, I managed to capture a good super-resolution picture of a menacing carnotaurus, a large bipedal theropod with horns on its skull. I went a little bigger on this one, it’s about 102mb in size, but pretty awesome:

anyone should be able to see these shares.
