'ARK: Survival Evolved' Turkey Trial Guide: How to Get Wishbones & Find Super Turkeys

ARK: Survival Evolved Turkey Trial 3 is officially underway, which means players are battling Super Turkeys to collect Wishbones that unlock unique cosmetics. In this guide, we'll reveal the basics of the event including how to get Wishbones and the best locations to find Super Turkeys. We'll also list the admin commands below for those who'd rather cheat to see what the new items are all about.

How to Get Wishbones & Where to Find Super Turkeys

In order to get any of the event-themed cosmetics, players need to collect Wishbones. Unfortunately, the only way to do that is by fighting the Super Turkeys scattered across the map. While you can find one pretty much anywhere, they're most commonly seen on the beach coast.

These little beasts have about 2,000 health, but they deal lots of damage and have high health-regen properties. Seriously, don't be surprised to lose a Giga or two trying to take these birds down. Each turkey only offers two Wishbones, so you'll need to kill lots of them to make the most of the event.

With all that in mind, here's how many Wishbones you'll need to craft everything Turkey Trial 3 has to offer. Note that everything must be crafted in a Cooking Pot.

  • Pitchfork: 15 Wishbones
  • Turkey Leg: 15 Wishbones
  • Chieftan Hat: 10 Wishbones
  • Pilgrim Hat: 10 Wishbones
  • Bonnet Hat: 10 Wishbones
  • Turkey Hat: 10 Wishbones
  • Meat Swim Top: Five Wishbones
  • Dodo Pie Swim Top: Five Wishbones
  • Doddo Pie Swim Bottom: Five Wishbones
  • Turkey Swim Top: Five Wishbones
  • Turkey Swim Bottom: Five Wishbones
  • Hungry Emote: 25 Wishbones
  • Food Coma: 25 Wishbones
  • Belly Rub: 25 Wishbones
  • Thanksgiving Candy: Two Wishbones
  • DodoRex Mask: Tame DodoRex (requires about 400 Wishbones)

These skins also have limitations in that players won't respawn with them after dying, and these skins can only be crafted during the event period ending December 3. Emotes are also event-limited and remain attached to the survivor with which they are crafted. The Chieftan Hat skin can be kept, however, by completing the Master Survivor achievement, which requires players to defeat the Dragon on the Island. Keeping the DodoRex Mask requires the Gamma Ascension achievement.

If this sounds like a lot of work, we'd say you're correct. That's why these admin commands will come in handy. Enter them by pressing tab on PC or by using the following console button commands at the start menu. With these codes you can experience all the cosmetics for free without any effort. In single-player, the "enablecheats" command must be entered first.

  • PS4 = L1 + R1 + Square + Triangle
  • Xbox One = LB + RB + X + Y
