How to spawn dinosaurs and items on a ARK: Survival Evolved server

You must be admin to use these codes.

Spawning Items

To spawn items, you first need to get the item's ID. List of all item IDs can be found on here

These commands get put into the console when connected to the server. You can access this pressing the Tab ↹ key.

The console command is this formatted like so:


For example:
cheat GiveItemNum 1 1 1 0 This will give you a simple pistol.

Important information regarding the numbers in the above example.

The first digit is the item ID.
Second digit is the quantity.
Third digit is the quality of the item you want to spawn.

GiveItemNum 1 1 10 0 Will give you an ascendant or master-craft pistol.

Fourth digit is wether you want the item to be a blueprint or not. Putting 0 means false, and 1 means true.
GiveItemNum 1 1 1 1 This command will give you a simple pistol blueprint.

Here are more examples to make it easier for you to understand:
cheat giveitemnum 14 30 1 0 ---- This command will give you 30 cooked meat.
cheat giveitemnum 120 100 1 0 ---- This command will give you 100 mejoberries.
cheat giveitemnum 132 1 10 0 ---- This will you you an ascendant longneck rifle.

Spawning Dinosaurs

There are two methods to spawn dinosaurs in Ark. Full list of entity IDs and blueprint paths can be found on

First method is by summon command.

admincheat Summon ENTITYID
Example: admincheat summon Achatina_Character_BP_C ---- will summon an Achatina.

Using the summon command will spawn a random level. If you want to spawn a specific dino level, use method two.

Second method is by Spawndino command


For example:
admincheat SpawnDino "Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Achatina/Achatina_Character_BP.Achatina_Character_BP'" 500 0 0 150

This will spawn a level 150 Achatina.

When spawning a dino make sure you look up or at the sky and not at the ground otherwise the dino might glitch and spawn under the ground.
