ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
It is everyone’s dream to have this stuff, who agrees?
Anky should have a Weight reduction right
They are handy to have around to make scopes long neck rifles iron pick and iron hatchet or bullets
If you have a plat quezt and a ladder next to it just mine metal with anky and quezt then put it in a mortar and pestle Then once u have that amount you need carry it all or drop and carry then u hop on the ladder attached to the quezt that way it doesn't add weight and carry the anky with your quezt and u can carry 10k metal no problem (Sorry if this is a bit confusing)
If you put raw metal in a Phoenix it will automatically smelt it
PLEASE don't get metal and metal ingots mixed up metal on the anki has a weight reduction of 300 to 45 butility metall ingots do nothing on the anti only raw metal has a weight reduction
If you want a fun way to get metal, tame a high level giga and just stomp around the map killing everything, but focus on the tek creatures. I sent one ark day doing this and I got tons of exp and over 200 scrap metal plus a load of oil and element dust. This is also a good way to get hide for saddled.
Do metal runs with skiff and magmasaurs and they will collect and cook the metal
Get metal from rocks then craft a refining forge put the metal in and some wood light the fire then you get metal and when you have metal I recommend crafting a smithy
Craft a industrial grinder,place 15 shocking trankdarts,grid 10 of them ..
There you go you have 10metal and 10biotoxin
15shocking trankdarts are unharmed....
You got a unlimited metal and biotoxin farm...
Nice trade right.....?
If your getting less metal ingots than your raw metal,remember that 2 raw metal makes 1 metal ingot
Anky also has weight reduction from 300 raw metal normally weighs 300 LBS but on an anky it only weighs 45 LBS
Go find shiny rocks harvest them and make a refining forge and light it put the metal inside then you have metal ingots
For all newer players, instead of going to a volcano for metal, the smooth, light gray rocks give off a small amount of meta, and so do the small piles of rocks. Metal picks get the most metal, but stone picks work just fine.
Though heavy Anky’s metal gatherers. DON’T USE DODICK’S TO COLLECT METAL ROCKS!!!!!
it’s not worth alot if you’re on creative mode. Paint it yellow and you have a big ass gold bar
Metal a key resource in ark to make progression to ark without it ur just missing out I suggest getting medal and doing regularly metal runs with anything so that you have a nice base with defenses
If you’re in endgame with quetz play saddle then put ref forge or or indi doesn’t matter and you should do this with 3 tribemates because you should have an argy carry the anky, someone on the anky and someone flying the quetz. It possible put as much metal in the anky as possible. You could also do this with just 2 people with the quetz on follow
More of a later game setup.
1. Find area with lots of rich metal ore.
2. Catch gasbag & quetz
3. Raise magmasaur.
4. Place gasbag on quetz platform saddle
5. Bring magnasaur in a cryopod
6. Mine then smelt the metal using the magmasaur
7. Place it in the gasbag(no weight for the quetzal). Fly to next place. Rinse and repeat.
On genises part 1 you just use a bloodstalker and have a magmasaur or an anklosaurus crypoded plus a mining drill. Make sure the blood stalker has a minimum of 600 wieght. Look in lava biom there's metal everywhere if its too dangerous for you look under the big trees in bog biom there's lots in the roots. Deploy metal harvestor harvest all metal in area move on if cryo cool down is on just use the mining drill It collects the same amout as a pick but does it much faster.
