Administrative Commands for the Administrative Player


To Whitelist an Admin on a Rented Server:

(Whitelisting allows you to use admin commands without logging in through console)

1) Create a file called AllowedCheaterSteamIDs.txt in the directory \ShooterGame\Saved\

2) In the AllowedCheaterSteamIDs.txt file, list the STEAM64 IDs you wish to have access to admin commands. STEAM64 ID looks like this: 7656119xxxxxxxxxx

To Give Admin Access to a Player on a Non-Dedicated Server:

1) Select Host\Local

2) Select “HOST DEDICATED SERVER” (note: you DO NOT want to load your non-dedicated just yet.)

3) Invite the people you want to have admin command access.

4) Use the on-screen options to admin the players. Basically, click the player you want and then click the “add admin” button, you will see their name transfer to the administrator section.

5) Ask friends to exit to main menu

6) Host your local, non-dedicated server.

7) Your friends once logged in, can use “admincheat <command>“.

If you aren’t already in the command console, press TAB to open it up.

Remember to use EnableCheats <password> before using the commands below.

How do u spawn in red deep sea loot crates


Instructions and all possible commands regarding loot crates and beacons will be located at the bottom of this page: http://www.playjurassicark.com/ark-item-id-list-for-administrators/


Is there a way to make a host dedicated server and give your friends admin commands


Yes but it requires you to know how to forward ports and fetching game server files from SteamCMD. It’s quite an extensive process. If you plan on hosting the server from your own PC, you have to make sure you have it running at all times. Your best bet would be to find a server provider and pay a small fee to have them do it for you. If you still want do all the work yourself and need the info on how to set one up, I’ll send you a link on how to do it.


how do u spawn in those black drops


What do you mean by black drops? Like a beacon or black pearl?


you press down LB RB X Y at the same time


Hey, how come the cheats for Xbox One are unavailable? It doesn’t show the admin command bar, and it’s extremely laggy….I also haven’t been on in a while, so sorry if it’s just an error or something.


While in-game press left an right bumpers plus X an Y at the same time to have the admin bar appear.


There has been a recent update for Xbox version of ARK. Someone said you had to press:
Lb Rb x y

This should bring the command bar back up.


Also, it’s a tad confusing with the new setup…Can you explain to me a little? Thanks a bunch. <3


Press ‘Start’ to go to pause menu. Then press and hold ‘LB’ + ‘RB’ + ‘X’ + ‘Y’ at the same exact time. This will reveal the admin command console.



Don't miss out on any ARK updates!
