ARK Survival Evolved: How to Use Console Commands on PC, Xbox One, PS4


If you’re wanting a way to spawn various items, dinos, ascend, and even fly around the map in ARK: Survival Evolved, you can do so via console commands. In order to input these commands, you must first bring up the admin command bar. This is done by:

PS4 – Access pause menu, hold together – L1, R1, Square, Triangle.
Xbox One – Access pause menu, hold together – LB, RB, X, Y.
PC – Press the Tab key to pull up the admin console. Pressing Tab again brings up a larger version of the console on the top half of the screen.

You will then see an admin command bar appear at the top of the screen. This bar will remain here even if you exit out of options but will disappear if left too long. If it does so, just input the same procedure as before.

Once the bar has been activated, you can then type in various console commands. All PC commands work on console versions. Here are some useful ones to get you started:

Useful Console Commands in ARK: Survival Evolved

  • Enable cheats – EnableCheats (you will need server password if it is not your own)
  • To fly – AdminCheat Fly
  • Instantly tame dino – DoTame / ForceTame when dino is highlighted (ForceTame allows you to instantly ride the dino without crafting a saddle)
  • Spawn dinos – Summon / SummonTamed followed by dino ID code. Eg. Summon Pela_Character_BP_C (Pelagornis), MegaRex_Character_BP_C (Alpha Rex)
