Find out the best and fastest ways to get Cementing Paste in Ark Survival Evolved in this guide.
Cement Paste in Ark Survival Evolved is a common resource made from chitin, keratin, and stone. It is used to make advanced items and structures. It can be created with a mortar and pestle and is used in many crafting recipes. Cementing paste is used to craft items such as fabricated firearms, auto turbines, platform saddles, cannons, canteens, chain bolts, compound bows, grappling hooks, fabricators, greenhouse structures, industrial grills, vaults, water jars, and more.
Apart from crafting it in the mortar and pestle or chemistry bench, there are some natural sources from which players can obtain cement paste. In this guide, we will go over all the best and fastest ways to get cement paste in Ark Survival Evolved.
Best Ways To Get Cementing Paste
Beelzebufo is a giant frog that is one of the mountable creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is found in the Swamp Biome and, when ridden, is a fast mover, especially underwater, with the ability to make long-distance jumps, which are second only to the Procoptodon.
Beelzebufos also naturally create cement paste when they consume small insects. By using a Beelzebufo to eat insects such as the Meganeura or Titanomyrma, it can convert materials harvested from the Meganeura and Titanomyrma into cement paste.
Giant Beaver Dam
By accessing a giant Beaver Dam, you can grab large quantities of cement paste, but be careful, as the beavers will become hostile and attack you. If you ever go to a Beaver Dam to raid it for cement paste, be sure to clear out the dam’s entire inventory, or it will never refresh.
Achatina is a snail-like creature in ARK: Survival Evolved. By accessing an Achatina inventory, you can take the Achatina Paste that is made there passively over time, it can be used in the place of Cementing Paste. They generate 1 paste every minute but will stop producing once they hold 100 paste. It will also occasionally drop a piece of paste onto the ground. You can only access the inventory of tamed Achatina, but the wild ones will still occasionally drop paste on the ground.
In order to craft the cement paste yourself, you will need chitin, keratin, and stones. To get chitin, you need to harvest it from bug-type creatures like trilobites, meganeuras, and titanomyrmas. You should either use a tamed Megatherium or a sabertooth to gather it, along with hatchets.
On the other hand, you can get keratin from several dinosaurs, like Carbonemys, Triceratops, Stegos, and Anklyos. In order to harvest it, you can either use a hatchet or a tamed sabertooth. Lastly, stones can be harvested from large rocks.
