We’ve put together a list of controls to show you how to use the Tropeo on Ark.

Tropeognathus Controls:

These controls are specifically for PC and are based on the default keybindings when the game is first installed.

Fly vertically up: X

Fly vertically down: C

Strafe Left: A

Strafe Right: D

Activate Jet: Control (CTRL)

Drafting: Hold Space bar (Icon must be showing)

Knock back: Double tap Space

Jet Boost: Shift while jet is activated

Fire Grenades: Whilst jet is active click the left mouse button

Swoop: With the jet boost active fly up, then fly down, similar to the Griffin’s swoop, but with a jet engine!

Bite: Left click without jet active

Evasive manoeuvre: Press C whilst using jet boost

You can also use the Tropeognathus as a mobile grinder too, by placing items within its inventory.

As you can see from the image above, to use all the mechanics of the Tropeognathus, you need to ensure that it has gasoline and grenades in its inventory.

There have been rumours that the Tropeognathus will be able to have increased speed stats when it levels, this is not the case.

The Tropeognathus can also use it’s grenades to damage metal structures, which is going to make it one of the new choices for a raid dino.
