The Spray Painter is a tool in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be utilized to quickly paint structures/constructions with less dye than a Paintbrush would use.

Usage[edit | edit source]

  1. To set a paint color, drag the chosen dye onto the Spray Painter.
  2. To toggle a paint region to Enabled or Disabled, press the combination as shown on the table below to select which color region(s) you wish to paint.
  3. Hold down the fire button and drag your crosshair over each structure piece to paint the Enabled regions in the color applied to the Spray Painter. The dye will slowly be suspended as you are spraying, and you can see how much paint you have left by looking at the grey bar underneath the Spray Painter in your inventory.
  4. If you run out of paint in the Spray Painter, as one might when using a Paint Brush, you can quickly refill with the same color by pressing the melee button.

For the Playstation and Xbox versions, the Color Regions are Enabled and Disabled by pressing combinations of buttons as shown in the table below:
