'ARK' Turkey Trial 4 Guide: Wishbones, Super Turkeys, DodoRex and Spawn Codes

ARK: Survival Evolved Turkey Trial 4 runs November 24 through December 8, which means it's time for survivors to pick up some sweet holiday goodies. In this no-nonsense guide, we'll explain the basics of Super Turkeys, the DodoRex and what you can do to unlock all the Chibis and new outfits with or without cheats.

How to get Wishbones and kill Super Turkeys

Just like previous years of Turkey Trial, the main currency players must collect is Wishbones. To get Wishbones you must fight Super Turkeys scattered across the map. These large birds are pretty much everywhere, but they're most plentiful around the coastal areas where you'd typically find Dodos.

They may look small, but they're seriously no joke. They spawn around level 200 and have damage resistance for just about everything you could possibly throw at them. With this in mind, it's helpful to have a Giga or Managarmr in your party if possible. If it's not, the alternatives are to pen it and shoot it with rifles or to have many friends attacking it at once. As if that resilience wasn't enough, you'll also have to deal with the swarm of wild beasts that emerges when you attack them as well. With the right setup it's possible to get into a Super Turkey slaughter groove, which is a good thing because you'll need to down dozens of them to legitimately earn the event rewards. Killing one turkey only drops two Wishbones.

How to spawn a DodoRex

In Turkey Trial 4 it costs 400 Wishbones to spawn the DodoRex using a standard Cooking Pot. Just place the items in the pot alongside some wood to stoke the flames, and the DodoRex will appear. You can make full use of it without a saddle, but it's only available in-game for 25 minutes outside of boss fights. In other words, the DodoRex amounts to a substantial Wishbone grind for a very short term gain. At the very least, it can help you farm many more Wishbones while it's around.
