Overview[edit | edit source]
Prime Meat Jerky is a food item in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is a very durable and long lasting source of food.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Upon consumption, Prime Meat Jerky restores 35.0 food points, which is the same as Cooked Prime Meat. However, it is very durable and can be stored for a long time without spoiling. It lasts 2 days in a survivors inventory, 8 days in a creature's inventory, 20 days in a Preserving Bin, and 200 days in a Refrigerator.
It can be used to tame wild Carnivores, but provides the same effect as Cooked Prime Meat.
It is also used as an ingredient for making Kibble.
Spoil times[edit | edit source]
For more information, see Spoilage.
Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Jerky in real life must be made with raw meat in order to retain enough moisture to still be palatable, as opposed to cooked meat like in the game.
- Raw Prime Meat spoils extremely fast, so taking a Campfire to cook Raw Prime Meat into Cooked Prime Meat to then make it into Prime Meat Jerky using a Preserving Bin is highly recommended.
