Overview[edit | edit source]

Raw Meat is a food item in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be obtained by harvesting the corpses of creatures with, in order of efficiency, a Carnivore, a Pick, a Hatchet, or your fists. It can be found in white, green and blue supply drops.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Raw Meat can be used to tame Carnivores when they are unconscious. Open the inventory of the creature you want to tame and put the Raw Meat inside of it.

If eaten by the survivor, it replenishes food by 10 points, but decreases health by 5 points.

If eaten by a tamed or untamed carnivore, 1 raw meat restores 50 points of food and 5 points of health.

Raw Meat can also be cooked at a Campfire or Industrial Grill to create Cooked Meat.png Cooked Meat. Cooked Meat replenishes more food and spoils slower than Raw Meat. It takes 20 seconds to cook Raw Meat in a Campfire.

Spoil times[edit | edit source]

For more information, see Spoilage.


Spoilage[edit | edit source]

Like other perishables, Raw Meat will spoil after a set amount of time (10 minutes in a player's inventory), creating Spoiled Meat.png Spoiled Meat. When stacked together, the Raw Meat will only spoil one from the stack at a time, and then reset the timer. If meat stacked together has two different timers, the stack with the least amount of time left will be used.

Splitting a stack of Raw Meat will leave the player with two stacks that each have the same timer. Players that require lots of Spoiled Meat may consider splitting a stack into several individual items in their inventory; this will cause all the Raw Meat pieces to spoil at the same time.
