Ark Survival Evolved – Complete Command Codes List

If you’ve spend some time with Ark Survival you’ve come to terms with the fact that cheat codes and admin console commands make the game even livelier. The game console gives you a way to manipulate the game and unleash powers otherwise impossible by default.

ark survival console commands

To get started, you will have to bind the console to a hotkey. Go to the options menu and bind it to  any key (if you don’t find the default ‘tab’ key good enough) Note that all the admin console commands will only work when you are running the game on a private server and will not take effect on the official multiplayer servers.
