ARK: Survival Evolved Walkthrough

1. Walkthrough overview

This game can no longer be completed without purchasing the Genesis Pass DLC. If you are playing ARK through Game Pass, you will not be able to get the 100% as the Perfect Explorer achievement requires content from the DLC.

Welcome to the walkthrough for ARK: Survival Evolved. This is an incredibly deep game with lush backgrounds, a wide variety of species to encounter, and an entire world to explore and create. With all of the customization options, this is a game where you can easily spend hundreds of hours crafting your own primeval world.

...but you're here for the achievements, right? Those don't take nearly as long. Let's cut straight to the chase.

ARK allows for the use of Admin Commands to add items and for you to travel the world, allowing you to slice through what would otherwise be a very long grind. This guide will rely on these commands for the majority of the achievements, especially the long and arduous Veteran Palaeontologist achievement.

We'll go through how to set up your game to make this as efficiently as possible.
