Artifacts

From ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Artifacts are special items in ARK: Survival Evolved that can be found in Caves around the ARK. They can be found in a loot-crate at the end of the cave, and obtaining them can be fairly dangerous. Currently, their only use is to summon Broodmother Lysrix, Megapithecus, and the Dragon. They can also be placed on Trophy Base.png Trophy Bases for decoration purposes.

Currently, 15 Artifacts exist in the game, however only 13 of them can be obtained without using cheats.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Any creature can only carry one artifact of the same kind at a time. It is helpful to have a Dimorphodon or other shoulder mounted creature to carry an extra artifact for you.
  • if spawned in with console commands, the artifact of the flamekeeper does not appear on trophy bases.
  • Artifacts are used to summon boss monsters at the Obelisks or placed on a Trophy Base.png Trophy Base for decoration.
