'ARK' Genesis Admin Command Cheats: How to Spawn New Creatures & Items

ARK: Survival Evolved Genesis has finally been released, and that means players can experience a whole new crop of creatures and items across all facets of the game. For those who haven't purchased the full Genesis Season Pass yet, these cheats can be used to try out the new content in areas outside the actual Genesis map. Just download ARK's latest update, and these commands should offer a solid free trial of the DLC.

How to use Admin Commands in ARK

Before we get to the commands, here are the basics of using ARK's admin commands on console or PC.

PC

Just press the Tab key and start typing your command.

Console

On PS4 or Xbox, you must first bring up the pause menu and press L1+R1+X+triangle (or LB+RB+X+Y). This brings up the command menu for you to start typing.

If you're playing multiplayer you may need to enter the "enablecheats" command first, but in single-player everything should work without it.

ARK Genesis Creature Commands

Here are the spawn commands for all the new creatures in ARK Genesis.

NOTE: After spawning each creature, you may also want to use "admincheat ForceTame" to force tame them. Just make sure the creature is in your crosshairs, and it will be tamed if it's a tamable creature.
