How to Spawn an Item in Ark

There are three ways to spawn items in Ark. You can use the:

  • GFI code
  • Blueprint path, or
  • Item ID

Some items may only have some of the above codes. If one method of spawning does not work, try using another.

Find the spawn command for any Ark item in our complete list of Ark item IDs..

GFI code method for spawning

The GFI code command syntax looks like this:

adminCheat GFI GFI code Quantity Quality Blueprint

Quantity is a number between 1 and the stack size that indicates how many of the item you want to spawn. Quality is a number between 0 and 100, indicating the quality of the item to be spawned. Finally, Blueprint can be 1, if you want to spawn the blueprint, or 0, if you want to spawn the item.

For example, admincheat GFI Weapon Gun 1 1 0 will spawn a Simple Pistol.

Blueprint path method for spawning

The blueprint path command syntax looks like this:

adminCheat GiveItem Blueprint path Quantity Quality Blueprint

For example, admincheat GiveItem "Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/CoreBlueprints/Weapons/PrimalItem_WeaponGun.PrimalItem_WeaponGun'" 1 1 0 will also spawn a Simple Pistol.

Item ID method for spawning

The item ID command syntax looks like this:

adminCheat GiveItemNum Item ID Quantity Quality Blueprint

For example, GiveItemNum 1 1 1 0 will spawn a Simple Pistol.

Multiplayer mode

If you are on a multiplayer server, some commands need to be prefixed with admincheat or cheat. If you are in single-player mode, you do not need cheat or admincheat before the command.

How to open the console

To open the command console, press Tab on PC. On Xbox, press LB RB X Y at the same time. On PlayStation, press L1 R1 Square Triangle at the same time.

Some cheats require you to authenticate yourself with the enablecheats command.

Commands are not case sensitive.
