What Influences Spawns in Jurassic World Alive?

Though we don’t know exactly how it plays out, spawn points are clearly associated with location tags that influence which dinosaurs are found there. The broadest of these tags encompass all dinosaurs currently spawning in the game and are listed below:

  • Global
  • Parks
  • Local (4 different types)

Global spawns can spawn at any point while park spawns spawn at parks, preserves, and other naturalesque public locations. The four localized categories are more vague. These appear to be what we referred to as “local spawns” in our previous spawn article.

These may be the areas that we are most likely to see dinosaur “migrations” to and from. These four local categories may be variable in size, but all appear to cover broad areas. We don’t know what these local areas are tied to, but we can tell you what appears in each one!

Changes in Spawns post 1.4 Update

In version 1.4, Ludia has slightly changed the spawns for Global, Parks and Local 2+4. New Dinos were added to the “Nest Spawns” and “Nest Locations”, which you’ll see later in this article. On the temporal side, they’ve had some new Dawn and Dusk spawn changes. As you will notice, Park spawns now have a few hybrid materials, making it slightly worth going to parks now if you really need those hybrid ingredients. Each local has added a day/dawn/dusk Epic Dino and each has an all-day rare hybrid. To balance each local out, they each have 2 epics with hybrids.

To complicate things, we do see Dinos pop up in unexpected places. However, most spawns operate as expected, given the categories below. Check out the Dinosaurs in each category, below.

Global Spawns

Parks / Green Space spawns

Local Spawns

These four categories may correlate with our speculation regarding local spawning. Here are the dinosaurs that you can find in each local area. We’ve put each of the four local spawn categories on a separate line for ease of interpretation.

Nests in Jurassic World Alive

Jurassic World Alive does not currently have “nests” in the sense that Pokemon Go did, but there is something we will call nests that we think is even cooler! You may have noticed that some dinosaurs only spawn at certain times (day or night), but you occasionally see these dinosaurs at other times (e.g. running into a Velociraptor mid-day). If this happens to you, you’ve just run across a nest!

We’ve linked certain spawn points to business/building types and, at these points, a group of dinosaurs can spawn at anytime. Below is a list of these nest locations and their associated dinosaurs.

Remember, there’s always a very low chance of any dino spawning anywhere, so if you see a dino extremely out of place, then that should be your explanation!

Parting Words

This time Luida didn’t have massive Spawn Changes, but they did add quite a few new and exciting Dinos for us to explore and discover! If you want to join in the hunt and conversation, check out our Discord!


        • Nope, in games I don’t 🙂 and actually, for me, it is the opposite: after a few such occasions, it just makes me tired and want to give up on the game… I presume that I’m not the only player of this kind.

          • How many games have you played that didn’t involve any disappointments and frustration and that still interested you for a long time?

            But I hear you, too much of it will make you give up, and the vanishing dinos are sure frustrating. But personally , I think it makes every catch a little more exciting bc you can’t take it for granted so I’ve started to actually like it the way it is. 🙂

  1. This is what they meant with migration this time around? Come on, Ludia. Swap the local zones around. Variety is the spice of life. Seeing the same Trike Gen 2 for months isn’t 🙁
    Local 3 is such a bad zone, apart from Erliko and Monolo. Was hoping for an Iguanodon hybrid so each zone could have something important spawning all the time.

    • I live in L1 and work in L4. Mono, Erliko and even Tuojiango are extremely rare creatures that I almost never see. I wish I could find any smallish L3 around but there isn’t seem to be any 🙁 which means I will never create those 3 uniques that require Erliko and Tuojiango..

  2. since the 1.4 update, park spawns seem to be broken.i went to the park yesterday to catch some secodontasaurus dna but they didnt exist! now today, i dont even see a green tower on the map anywhere! frustrating 🙁

    • According to the above article, Secodontosaurus now spawns in Local 2 not in parks.
      But yeah, I agree that many of the green supply drops disappeared from the parks so now parks are kind of a useless area to go to, although before 1.4 it’s also been kind of useless but now it seems to be just a waste of time to go there. All good dinos are now in either locals or global spawns.

    • I’ve been seeing a large number of Einiosaurus at my local park the past few days. It was a night spawn, but has possibly been moved and overlooked on the above.

      For the other three you mentioned, they are all arena exclusives – Irritator Gen 2 in Mt Sibo, Stygimoloch Gen 2 in Lockdown, and Gallimimus in Ruins.
