Grounded: Where to Find Black Ox Beetle Location Guide

The Black Ox Beetle is a formidable creature that can drop items like black ox horn and black ox part, items that are essential in crafting strong gear like the tier 3 Black Ox Hammer.
This creature is highly aggressive towards the player. It has an array of attacks to throw you off guard and dangerously is the hardest creature to kill due to its tanky capabilities.
But don’t worry. This guide will help you find and handle the beefy Ox Beetle.
Where to Find Black Ox Beetle?
The Black Ox Beetle can be found in the westernmost section of the trench area in the Shed Surroundings biome. It’s a large area full of dangerous creatures in the upper yard. If you’re having trouble finding it, there’s an illustration above that points to the location.
The Black Ox Beetle is the tankiest insect in the game. So it’s going to take some time to take it down. The good news is that it’s fairly predictable once you know its attacks.
The Beetle has five attacks.
- Normal Headbutt
- Rock throwing
- Rapid charge at the player
- Kick dust
- Lunge forward dealing heavy damage
Its elemental weakness is salt, so the Salt Morning Star is a great weapon to use against it. However, if you don’t have it upgraded tier 2 armor and a tier 3 weapon is recommended to face against the Black Ox Beetle.
Another tactic you can use is to attack it from a distance like using an Insect bow. Keep in mind to watch out for the rocks it’s going to hurl at you. It’s important to keep yourself mobile while shooting, to throw off its aim.
Just remember to make sure to pay attention to its attack pattern. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll defeat the tankiest insect in the game in no time.
