The Tek Helmet is a head-slot armor piece from the Tek Armor set.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Tek Helmet has different modes that can be switched by double-pressing E. By double-pressing E, the three different modes below are cycled through.

Pulse Mode highlights creatures and other survivors around the wearer in a specific color to show the relationship to the wearer. Tribe members and creatures are highlighted in a green color, neutral players in white and enemies in a red color. The helmet can scan through walls in a small radius around the wearer.

Night Vision Mode enables the wearer to see in the dark. Unlike the Night Vision Goggles, the display does not turn white when using night vision during daytime.

There is also a third mode that combines the two modes above. Holding E for 2 seconds switches the helmet on or off, allowing you to keep a specific mode selected.

A powered full set of Tek armor gives you extremely clear vision underwater in first person

The Tek Helmet works as a Gas Mask.

In ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile, the Tek Helmet provides the survivor with a +10% speed increase, a +10% damage increase, and a -20% fall damage decrease when powered. However, it does not have a targeting system and does not act as Night Vision Goggles.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Equipping the helmet adds a minor overlay
  • Spawning into your game may crash because of this helmet
  • Wild Equus Unicorns show up with a yellow outline, instead of green, when using pulse mode.
  • On Mobile this helmet can only be found as a Blueprint in the Dungeons (Mobile).
  • The "overseer language" found in Sanctuary on Extinction becomes readable when wearing the tek helmet.

Engram[edit | edit source]

The Engram is unlocked by defeating Alpha Broodmother Lysrix, Beta Rockwell, or Ice Titan and must be unlocked in order to equip this item.
