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 the bosses. They can also be placed on Artifact Pedastal.png Artifact Pedastals for decoration purposes.

Currently, 21 Artifacts exist in the game, however only 10 of them can be obtained without using cheats on The Island, 11 on The Center and Ragnarok, 3 on Scorched Earth, 3 on Aberration, and 3 on Extinction.

On Mobile, artifacts can be tributes for great rewards that will help in your conquest!

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Artifacts are used to summon boss monsters at the Obelisks or placed on a Artifact Pedastal.png Artifact Pedastal for decoration.
  • Only humans can carry artifacts. (since v254.0)
  • In Singleplayer, artifacts are set to respawn after 30 minutes. (since v260.0) It is also possible that it is not at its expected place when teleporting using setplayerpos command to its coordinates. It might appear after a while waiting in that area.
