Spawn an already tamed dinosaur

Taming dinosaurs is a fundamental part of survival!

Taming a creature in ARK is a long and tiring task, and it doesn't always work out as expected. You can try taming it manually, "on the arm", when the dinosaur spawns in front of you, if you want. But what if you want it to come tamed?



Simple: use a variation of Summon code, which is GMSummon + creature ID. So it already appears tamed, which saves a lot of work for the player.

Is there a way to spawn without cheats?

Unfortunately not. The only way to summon a creature, be it a dino or any other, is using a specific command, which is the one we teach above, in addition to its variation, which brings the animal already tamed.

Advantages of Summoning a Dinosaur

ARK is above all a survival game, so you'll have to use everything you can to survive, evolve and conquer new goals. The game was so well thought out that each dinosaur can play a different role in this survival.

The Dilophosaur, for example. Although you can't ride it, you can use it as protection while exploring the island. Or, if you prefer, use it to expand your inventory and be able to carry more items. Plus, it serves as bait for larger dinosaurs as you escape.

In this sense, having the possibility to summon a specific dino at certain times can allow you, among other things:

  • evolve faster
  • Get past enemies more easily
  • Seek resources in places less accessible to humans
  • Get around more safely and quickly

Can I spawn other creatures with the codes?

ARK isn't just about dinosaurs. You can Summon, for example, a werewolf, bears, insects and even a Yeti. If you prefer, you can call a large gorilla and even other humans. The total list comes to more than 150 creatures that can be summoned with code.

If you want to go beyond dinosaurs, you can access the specialized page of ARK codes. There you find practically 2 hundred IDs to use with the Summon command. See some examples:

  • Direbear: Summon Direbear_Character_BP_C
  • Direwolf: Summon Direwolf_Character_BP_C
  • unicorn: Summon Equus_Character_BP_Unicorn_C
  • Giant Bee: Summon Equus_Character_BP_Unicorn_C
  • Gigantopithecus: Summon Bigfoot_Character_BP_C
