Overview[edit | edit source]

The Compass is a tool in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can help you find your way around the island. The blue arrow on the Compass will always point north and is therefore very useful, especially if coupled with a map of The Island.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While North and South display correctly, East and West are switched on the compass. The GPS, which also shows direction, does not have this issue.
  • With Patch 278, the Compass is practically redundant with Maps enabled, as the Map's player icon is now an Arrow, showing your pointed direction.
