Hello fellow DPG members,
We’ve noticed some questions regarding the functionality of the new Scent Capsules. Here’s a detailed breakdown of how to best utilize them!
Scent Capsules are powerful tools that will attract creatures to your location! The duration of these will vary: e.g. Common capsules will last 5 minutes, Rare and Epics for 20 minutes, etc. Spawned creatures drawn to you by your scent will only be perceivable to you, and you alone!
Scent Capsules are most effective when you are moving, as you’ll have a better chance of attracting multiple creatures. That being said, be sure not to miss your spawning dinosaurs by running or driving past them. Also note, spawned creatures might escape while you are flying your drone, so make the most out of every DNA collecting run!
Furthermore, the guaranteed spawns from Rare or Epic capsules will not necessarily be the first spawned creatures you encounter, so be sure to keep moving around with your drone ready!
Scent Capsules can be found in Supply Drops, where players can collect up to 1 free capsule per day. Scent Capsules can also be found in the Free Incubator from the Shop where you can collect up to 2 Capsules per day. Additional Scent Capsules catered to various creature rarities (rare, epic, etc) and families (Raptors, etc), can also be found in the store. Once in your possession, your capsules will be retrievable from your Inventory, which can be found on your map screen.
We hope this cleared up the utility of the Scent Capsules!
