Whether you’re looking to be the top tribe or just want to survive, there are a number of dinos you can call on for help. From the Dilophosaur to the T-Rex, here’s how to spawn tamed dinos in Ark Survival Ascended.

Ark Survival Ascended Tamed Dino Spawn Commands

You’ll need to use console commands to have a tamed dino appear near your location. You can spawn any creature you want with these cheats.

They’ll appear in the same space as you, so be wary if you’re trying to spawn carnivores.

To do this, open the console and input Summon [Creature ID]. You don’t have to worry about capitalization when putting in the code.

As long as everything is spelled correctly, it’ll be accepted. Also, while you’re typing, commands with similar spellings or containing the word will show up in a box above the console line. All you need to do is find the one you want by typing and copy it.

If you’re on a public server, turn on Console Access in the main menu settings. You’ll also need Admin Permissions to use any commands.

You won’t have to do any of that if the server is yours — at least that’s the case in my testing — or you’re in Single-player mode.

How to Summon Tamed Dinos in ASA

If you want to spawn a creature and already have it tamed, such as a Rex, then you’ll need to change the command to GMSummon [Creature ID] [Level].

When I use the console to spawn a dino or other creature, like a Quetz, I put the level at 150. Max level means I don’t have to hunt one down later. Since I play solo, it’s much easier than fighting everything in the later stages of the game.

You don’t have to put the level in, though. You’ll still spawn a tamed dino, but it’ll come at a random, often low, level. If you’re just looking to get a helping hand in the early game, this is a good way to achieve balance.
