From ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Whistle menu provides access to a wide range of whistled orders for your tamed creatures. You can access the whistle commands menu by holding down ' (PC) or Xbox: B (Xbox) or PS4: Circle (PS4). For the Xbox version there are no default buttons for the different whistlings, you have to use the whistle-menu.

Single-target Whistles

These whistles affect the target under your cursor when you use them.

Command Default Key Reaction
Follow One T The creature you are looking at will follow you (or the dino you are riding, if mounted).
Stop One Y The creature you are looking at will stop following whoever it is following.

Group Whistles

These whistles affect all creatures within a certain radius in your current whistle group. You can set your current whistle group by using the numpad 0 through 9. Pressing the same button on your numpad again selects the Global or None whistle group which always has all creatures in it. Pressing Z while pointing at a creature will add it to your current whistle group or remove it from your current whistle group. Pressing H will place a chevron over each creature in your current whistle group. A green chevron indicates the creature is following group whistles, while a yellow chevron indicates the creature has been set to ignore group whistles via it's radial menu.

Notes

  • The exact range of the whistles is not known
  • xbox 1 hold lb and press up and down on dpad
  • Looking through a Spyglass.png Spyglass greatly increases the range and accuracy of the "Follow One" and "Attack This Target" whistles, allowing you to call your dinosaurs from farther away or send them against a distant target.
