How to use Ark cheats
You can access the console in Ark by pressing the Tab key. A small box will open at the very bottom of the screen. There you type in the cheats. Press Tab again to close the console.
In single player mode, just enter the cheats to activate them. If you have the administrator password in multiplayer mode, you will need to enter EnableCheats <password> before you can use cheats. Some cheats (while playing on a server) require the prefix ‘admincheat’. In single player mode, you don’t have to worry about a prefix. Just type it in and hit enter.
The cheats are written in bold below (and they are not case sensitive).
