How to Get Obsidian in ARK: Survival Evolved

Obsidian is a very rare resource that can prove incredibly useful when trying to craft modern tech in ARK: Survival Evolved. Locating it can be tricky, unless you know where to begin searching. The most lucrative farming spots for the stuff in ARK: Survival Evolved are Whitesky Peak to the northwest and the volcano at the center of the island, with obsidian rocks dotting the summit of both locations. If you follow the paths up towards the top of the volcano, you should pass by a few en route. Use your metal pick or ankylosaurus to gather the resources.

Smaller quantities can also be found at Frozen Tooth to the east of the volcano, and Far’s Peak further east from there – the treacherous steepness of that particular landmark makes it far less desirable for mining, especially if you do not have a sure-footed dino to help you scale the mountain.

The main thing to consider before going on an expedition for obsidian in ARK: Survival Evolved is whether you have prepared for the long journey to the top. It is imperative to ensure that you are well stocked and ready for whatever dangers you may encounter along the way, from deadly predators to the bitter elements themselves.

That’s all you need to know to get obsidian in ARK: Survival Evolved. For more on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite.
