Get items in the game

ARK has hundreds of items that you can use on a daily basis as a survivor. There are many and the process of obtaining them through commands is somewhat complicated, but not impossible. In general, the codes used to obtain items are the following two:

  • GiveItemNum [Item Number] [Quantity] [Quality] [True or 1 / False or 0]
  • GiveItem [Object Directory] [Quantity] [Quality] [True or 1 / False or 0]

Let's say you want to get a parachute. You must write the two commands as follows if you want to get the item directly (not the recipe):

  • GiveItemNum 184 1 1 0
  • GiveItem "Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/CoreBlueprints/Items/Consumables/BaseBPs/PrimalItemConsumableBuff_Parachute.PrimalItemConsumableBuff_Parachute'" 1 1 false

As you can see, the second method is more confusing because the command is very long. As for typing "True / False" or "1 / 0", to get the recipe or the item respectively, it's a matter of testing. Usually, with GiveItemNum you have to type the number, while with GiveItem you have to type the word.

Please note that updates change some ID numbers and directories. Therefore, it is difficult to find a place where absolutely all the items are 100% updated.

How to activate commands on PC, XBOX One and PS4

The commands can be used both on PC and on XBOX One and PS4, although we warn you that, in some cases, the cheats may not work on consoles. The commands are not case-sensitive. In this article, we have simply mixed to improve the visibility of the words.

To activate the commands on these three platforms, you must:

  • On PC: press the TAB or Tabulator button.
  • On XBOX One: press the LB, RB, X, and Y buttons at the same time.
  • On PS4: press the L1, R1, Square, and Triangle buttons at the same time.

Note: If you want to use the commands in multiplayer, in many cases you will need to add "AdminCheat" or "Cheat" just before typing the corresponding command. Example: AdminCheat gamecommand startgame. It is not necessary to do this when playing solo.
