What are commands for in ARK?

Admin commands or "cheat commands" are used both in a single player game and on a private server. These commands allow you to influence the game as you need. With the help of cheat commands, you can instantly gain experience, level up your character, increase your weight to infinity and much more.

How to use commands in the game?

Initially, to use any console commands, the player (admin) must have administrator rights on the server, for this you need to keep a password in the admin panel. In previous versions of the game, the administrator panel was present at the top of the Start menu, but due to an update, now to activate the administrator panel, you need to enter a combination in the Start menu at the same time.

1) Open the Start menu.

2) If you are playing from a PC, press the Tab key.

3) If you're playing on PS4, press L1 + R1 + Square + Triangle or open the panel from the menu.

4) If you are playing on Xbox One, press LB + RB + X + Y.

5) Type enablecheats at the command prompt.

TIP

If the server has a password, enter "enablecheats *your password*"

Now that you have access to the game console, we suggest you familiarize yourself with the list of basic admin commands for the game:
