Scent Capsules are a new feature in Jurassic World Alive as of Update 1.4. In this article, we’ll go through the various Capsules available, how you can obtain them, and review how they actually perform in the game.

Common Scent Capsules

Price: 50 Cash for 5 Capsules

Common Scent Capsules are the grey ones. The Regular Scent Capsules are basically the ones that you can obtain for free daily through Supply Drops (drop rate resembles the rate for Cash). They last for 5 minutes and will generally attract Common Dinosaurs, but it isn’t unlikely for them to attract Rares and even Epic Dinosaurs! You can obtain a maximum of two free daily Regular Scent Capsules through Supply Drops (1 through regular Drops, 1 through Special Event Supply Drops).

The Large Scent Capsules can only be obtained through the shop. They last for 20 minutes and will generally attract Common Dinosaurs, but it isn’t unlikely for them to attract Rares and even Epic Dinosaurs!

Rare Scent Capsules

Price: 200 Cash for 1 Capsule

Rare Scent Capsules are the blue ones. The Rare Scent Capsules can only be obtained through the shop. They last for 20 minutes and will attract a minimum of one Rare Dinosaur, with increased odds of attracting more hereafter compared to Common Scent Capsules! On average, people are reporting seeing four Rare Spawns for the entire Rare Capsule, which is really impressive!

Epic Scent Capsules

Price: 1,000 Cash for 1 Capsule

Epic Scent Capsules are the yellow ones. The Epic Scent Capsules can only be obtained through the shop. They last for 20 minutes and will attract a minimum of one Epic Dinosaur, with increased odds of attracting more hereafter compared to Common and Rare Scent Capsules! On average, people are reporting seeing four Epic Spawns for the entire Epic Capsule, which is really impressive!

Themed Scent Capsules

Price: 400 Cash for 1 Capsule

Themed Scent Capsules are the blueish/greyish ones. The Themed Scent Capsules can only be obtained through the shop. They last for 20 minutes and will attract Dinosaurs from a specific theme/type! These Scent Capsules will be available from time to time and will focus on themes such as Stegosauridae, Dromaeosauridae, Ceratopsians, Theropods, Ankylosauria, Hadrosaurs, Sauropods, etc.

Scent Capsules – Review

Before we begin, here’s a preview of what Scent Capsules look like:

As you can see from the video:

  • Scent Capsules timers appear in the bottom right of the screen;
  • A halo and some smoke will appear around you showing the area covered by the Scent Capsules;
  • Dinosaurs attracted by the Scent Capsules will have a halo around them to distinguish them from regular spawns;
  • If not moving, spawns have a 2 minutes delay;
  • If moving, spawns are increased and will occur through dual spawns as per the images below (normally happens at 3 minutes);
  • Spawns are seemingly influenced by the zone/local you are in.

The intent behind providing Regular Scent Capsules through Supply Drops is for people to use them at any time, rather them holding onto them and only using them during events. Spawns will be quite frequent (guaranteed 3 spawns within 5 minutes with Regular Scent Capsules even if not moving!)!

From what we saw from the Beta Build, Regular Scent Capsules will be worth using daily (since you are at least getting one per day, technically). Whether it’s on your way back from school/work, on your lunch break, etc., up to 20 minutes of Dino attraction is so convenient!

As for Scent Capsules exclusively available through the Store, it always depends on your game style and budget, but they are all worth it! Our advice would be to purchase them when on sale (we cannot guarantee that they will ever be on sale, but everything in the store seems to be on sale every now and then).

  1. Do you n ow I’d this is like Pokémon go where he used to poke stops to put out a scent and it’s visible to other players. So does that mean if someone puts out a scent capsules will we see them on the map or is a scent capsule only shown to you on your game when you place your own?
