ARK: Survival Ascended PC and Xbox Console Commands List

How to Open Console and Enable Cheats on PC

The best part about ARK: Survival Ascended is that you can open a console and enable cheats on all platforms, including PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. The method is similar in all three cases, so simply follow the steps that I listed below:

  1. Go to the game’s home screen.
  2. Select “Settings” menu.
  3. Go to the “Advanced” tab.
  4. Switch “Console Access” to “ON.”
  5. Exit the menu and start the game.
  6. While in the game, press the following button to open the console:
    • PC: “~” (tilde)
    • PlayStation: R1 + L1 + Square + Triangle
    • Xbox: RB + LB + X + Y

How to Enable and Open Console on Xbox

With the release of ARK: Survival Ascended on Xbox Series X|S, the option to enable admin commands has also become available. The process is similar to what you would do on a PC, but with a few caveats of its own. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Start ARK: Survival Ascended.
  2. Press the “Pause” button.
  3. Select the “Settings” menu.
  4. Go to the “Advanced” tab.
  5. Toggle the “Console Access” option to “ON.”
  6. Confirm by pressing the “Save” button at the bottom of the screen.

Now your console will be enabled, and you can start entering the console commands that are the same across all platforms by following these steps:

  1. Start the game with new settings.
  2. Press the “Pause” button.
  3. Select the “Exit to Main Menu” option.
  4. Enter the console command in the “Console Command UI” field.
