Ark: Survival Ascended console commands give you complete control over your server and everyone in it, assuming you know what you're doing. There are nearly 100 console commands, each with very specific triggers and ways to input your desired parameters. We've rounded up all of them in our Ark: Survival Ascended console commands list and explained what each does.

How to use Ark: Survival Ascended console commands on PC

Press the "~" key (without quotation marks) to open the console command screen on PC. You'll see an empty black space and a blinking cursor. Enter your command, and a list of suggested commands appears. Choose from it, or ignore it and keep typing your own. Press "Enter" when you're finished to activate the command. You may need to open the game's main menu by pressing the "Escape" key first, though I accessed the console commands menu without doing that.

How to use Ark Survival Ascended console commands on PlayStation and Xbox

On PlayStation:

  • Open the menu
  • Press L1, R1, Square, and Triangle simultaneously

On Xbox:

  • Open the menu
  • Press RB, LB, Y, and X simultaneously
