Map of Genesis Part 2 DLC in Ark Survival Evolved

There is a massive world to explore in Genesis Part 2. However, the map is set on a huge ship that is made up of two rings. As you can see from the map, there are two different sides separated by space. These two sides are rings, and they are very different areas. These rings include;

  • The Right Side of the map is an easier region. It consists of green areas, and the creatures that you find here are quite normal. The right ring can be seen as a green area on the map.
  • On the other hand, the Left Side of the map is a tougher region. It consists of purple-colored territory, which is also known as the Corrupted Ring. Not only is the area full of terrifying enemies, but it is also quite tough to survive here.

It should be noted that, like other Ark ships, this one is also traveling through space looking for a planet that is habitable.

New Events on the Genesis Part 2 Map

The following two events can only be observed in the map of Genesis Part 2, the latest Ark Survival Evolved DLC;

  • The asteroids that you can observe between the two rings can change over time. That change occurs due to an event known as ‘Hyper-Space’. Hyperspace can only happen during the night, and it creates a purple tint in space. An abundant amount of stars will pass by the ship, causing the asteroids to change.
  • Genesis Part 2 also features some of the best Ark Survival Evolved missions. We will discuss these missions in detail later in the guide.

Maewings are generally friendly creatures in Ark Survival Evolved as long as you don’t threaten them in Genesis Part 2. They can be found in the Eden Zone along its beautiful rivers and forests. However, if you try to attack a Maewing, it will simply fly away into the skies.

Mawings can also be tamed in Ark. Not only do they make for the best parents when tamed, but they can also steal offspring from your enemies. As for their appearance, Maewings are hybrids of a Platypus and Flying Squirrels, giving them both aerial and water mobility.

Noglins are very important creatures in Genesis Part 2 of Ark Survival Evolved. Not only are they friendly aliens, but they also help the survives if used correctly. Basically, Noglins can control the minds of other creatures and survivors in Ark. They can give this control to their owners.

You can basically control the terrifying creatures in Ark using Noglins. Noglins are small in size and produce a glow from their bodies. They have large pointy ears and four eyes similar to a spider. You can tame a Noglin but never bring any large creature to fight Noglins as they can take control of your tamed creatures in Ark.

Out of curiosity, they will keep you grounded and always have an eye on you if you’re too close. They will even attack you if you become hostile towards them.

However, taming Astrodelphis is quite easy. You don’t even need to fight it to make it surrender. Just go near the creature and pet it. Additionally, you need to be swift while taming, as Astrodelphis has the potential to run away during the process.

Tek Stryder can also be modified to impersonate other creatures. However, it is not easy to tame a Stryder as it will attack you on sight. It will also explode when you kill it, which means it drops no resource to use.

Shadowmane

These are probably the most powerful Ark Survival Evolved creatures present in the Genesis Part 2 DLC. They mostly traverse in groups of 3, making it really hard for you to tame them. Solo Shadowmanes can even group up with nearby Shadowmanes if they sense hostility.

If Voidwyrms spot survivors, they will attack instantly, making them the hardest to tame. They will use Electric breath, which is strong enough to force dismount from your tame. Additionally, you need to damage Voidwyrms to specific health before you can start taming them. As it is a mechanical creature, Voidwyrm does not drop any resources.

Summoner

R-Creatures

New Missions in Genesis Part 2 

Genesis Part 2 DLC brings with it a massive catalog of missions of many different types in Ark Survival Evolved. There are certain categories into which such missions can be divided. These missions can be completed both solo or online.

Every mission has three different difficulty modes that you can play with. Obviously, playing on higher difficulties will grant you greater rewards. These difficulties are Alpha, Beta, and Gamma. Some missions can go as far as to restrict your playstyle.

While there are missions that can only be completed by using tamed creatures, on the other hand, some missions will completely restrict the usage of these creatures limiting your playstyle. So, you must be versatile while playing Genesis Part 2 of the game.

All such missions can be initiated through the Eden or Rockwell Garden Mission Terminal. You can also replay these missions as many times as you want for farming.

Rockwell prime genesis part 2
Final Boss Battle Version of Rockwell Prime In Genesis Part 2 of Ark Survival Evolved

Rockwell Prime is the major and final boss battle in Genesis Part 2 of Ark Survival Evolved. You will face Rockwell throughout the story of Genesis DLC in your ship. However, these encounters are small and scripted. Your real battle starts with Rockwell in the final mission, and you will face his real form there. Now we will discuss the boss in detail below.

Rockwell Prime Boss Battle

Rockwell’s final form is very much distinct and different from his previous appearance. He is now smaller in size but has more muscle mass. He gets a messed-up face along with no abdomen parts. One of his eyes will appear purple-colored, while the other will be blue-colored. He also has two sets of spines with a large number of tentacles hanging from his body. Rockwell actually looks like a Nightmarish Final Boss.

Location of Rockwell Prime

Rockwell Prime can be fought by playing the final mission ‘Terminus’ from the mission terminal in Genesis Part 2 present inside the ship of Ark Survival Evolved. You can farm the boss fight over and over if u want. However, Completing the mission is necessary to fight him as hell be waiting at the very end.

How To Beat Rockwell Prime

Rockwell Prime is probably the hardest boss to beat in Ark Survival Evolved. And it is a given since he’s your final obstacle before transitioning into Ark 2. As long as you’ve got good tamed creatures and items at your disposal, Rockwell shouldn’t be that much of a problem. We recommend doing the following;

  • In Phase 1, you have to take down Rockwell nodes first. Rockwell Prime majorly uses AOE attacks in his first phase and his super tentacles to attack. He will bring Summoners to the battle. It is going to become a hectic brawl at close-range. Watch out for his attacks and stay at range. Whenever you get an opening, destroy the Rockwell nodes.
  • In Phase 2, Rockwell Prime will fight you on its own once you’ve destroyed all the nodes. Summoners will also vanish, and things will start to get a little easier. Since you’ll have to deal with only Rockwell’s attacks, use your tamed creature to stay at range and take down the boss.

Rewards For Beating Rockwell Prime

You get different rewards for the type of difficulty you defeat Rockwell Prime in. Following are the rewards that you get from beating Rockwell in Genesis Part 2 of the game;

  • Gamma Difficulty Rewards: Rockwell Final Form Flag and Rockwell Final Form Trophy
  • Beta Difficulty Rewards: Rockwell Final Form Flag and Rockwell Final Form Trophy
  • Alpha Difficulty Rewards: Mutated Survivor Costume Skin, Rockwell Final Form Flag, and Rockwell Final Form Trophy

Resources in Genesis Part 2

  • Ambergris
