ARK Admin Advanced Dino Summoning

ARK Admin Advanced Dino Summoning

There is an earlier post on the summoning of dinos by using the ‘summon‘ command. However, there is a much more powerful command available which gives you more control over the dinos you can spawn in ARK: Survival Evolved.

For this command you will need the full blueprint paths of each of the dinos. These can be found in the table below and used with the following command:

cheat SpawnDino <blueprintPath> <spawnDistance> <spawn-Y-offset> <Z-offset> <dinoLevel>

To spawn a level 120 beelzebufo right in front of you, you would for instance use the following command:

cheat SpawnDino "Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Toad/Toad_Character_BP.Toad_Character_BP'" 1 1 1 120

Please pay attention to the double (“) and single (‘) quotes that are present in the blueprint path. If your dino won’t spawn after using the command, please recheck if those weren’t removed or overwrite them in the console to be sure they are correct. Furthermore, you can play around with the spawn distance and offsets to see the differences in spawn places.

Android & iOS App

Don’t forget that you can also use the Survive ARK Companion app for the spawn commands. This is especially useful for Xbox One players as you can copy the full command (adjusted to your needs) over from the companion app! No more issues with typing them over or combining them yourself; only a single click necessary to copy it to your clipboard! Download it here from Google Play or get it in the App Store here!

ARK: Scorched Earth Commands

For ARK: Scorched Earth commands, see this page.

Normal creatures

Name Blueprint Path
Castoroides (Giant Beaver)
Dung Beetle
Leech (With disease)
Sabertooth Salmon
Terror Bird
Woolly Rhino

Alpha creatures

Just as with the summon command, there are special blueprints for the Alpha dinos:

Name Blueprint Path
Alpha Carno
Alpha Raptor
Alpha Rex


And also for the bosses (Note that the Dragon is not available on Xbox):

Name Blueprint Path
Broodmother Lysrix


Special Halloween Fear Evolved creatures. The Rex, Carno and Raptor don’t have special ‘Bone’ blueprints to spawn. Instead, their alpha spawns have been altered and now have a bone look (which will also give you the skins for your own dinos). In order to spawn these, you can use the normal alpha spawn blueprints, but they are also included in this table for easy lookup.

Name Blueprint Path
Zombie Dodo
Skeleton Bronto
Skeleton Stego
Skeleton Trike
Skeleton Alpha Carno
Skeleton Alpha Raptor
Skeleton Alpha Rex


  1. How can i spawn a female dino… everytime i use the command spawn a male version.. there is a way to do that?

    1. yes the number befor lvl sit that to 0 and you get female dino
      (cheat SpawnDino “Blueprint’/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Dodo/Dodo_Character_BP.Dodo_Character_BP'” 1 1 1 5 male)
      (cheat SpawnDino “Blueprint’/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Dodo/Dodo_Character_BP.Dodo_Character_BP'” 1 1 0 5 give you female)

      hope it help you (:

      1. Author

        I think you just got lucky with the creature being female, as you cannot explicitly spawn a male or female version. The parameter you’ve changed is about the z-offset of the creature. If you would up it to for example 400 you will see it spawns a little away from you.

        1. Why cant i summon drake or dragon

          1. They aren’t added in on the console edition, yet. Like you, I am also unable to wait for the update, I hope.

          2. the summon code to spawn a dragon is (summon dragon_charachter_bp_c) hope this helped you

  2. how exactly do i spawn dinos on the xbox version because these commands for the giga are not working

    1. First of all do you have the bar at the top of the pause menu for admin commands? If you do, are you putting in the full command? You can see an example of the full command at the top of the page, simply replace the

      “Blueprint’/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Toad/Toad_Character_BP.Toad_Character_BP'” with


    2. To spawn giga on xbox. Cheat Summon Gigant_Character_BP_C

        1. Author

          The megapithecus was not available on xbox yet. With the latest patch (v734) it should now be possible to spawn it with the command in the table.

    3. to summon a giga you have to say ( summon gigant_Character_BP_C ) and you can level it up with addexperience (amount wanted) 1 1

      1. None of these work for me on xbox…..? No idea why

        1. Make sure to put Cheat Spawndino before the command.

    1. Not sure, I think I read somewhere that it is not enabled…

    2. There is a box with the text to the left of it that says, ” Admin Logging” you need to make sure that box has a check mark in it before loading the world.

  3. Where do you put the cording test to make it spawn in and how would I do this on xbox?

      1. Just leave them as
        admincheat SpawnDino “Blueprint’/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Toad/Toad_Character_BP.Toad_Character_BP'” 1 1 120
        That was an example and xbox commands are tricky and i would much rather have those keypad things attached to my controller, it makes life so much easier when typing in commands. Hope this helped.

    1. (admincheat)(cheat)summon Mosa_Character_BP_C
      For xbox For PC

      the 1000 is the lvl it will spawn in at so if you want a lvl 10,000 you would use cheat SpawnDino “Blueprint’/game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Quetzalcoatlus/Quetz_Character_BP.Quetz_Character_BP'” 0 0 0 10000

      and so on

  8. To spawn in a Eurypterid you use Euryp_Character_C. To spawn in at a custom level you use “Blueprint’/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Eurypterid/Euryp_Character.Euryp_Character'” 1 1 1 35. The 35 you can change for a custom level.( Such as 100, 1,000, or 10,000 )

  11. how do you spawn brood mother it wont work

    1. Author

      Make sure you copy the commands exactly (especially pay notice to the quotes), otherwise it will not work. Try the example at the top of the page and try to get that one to work; then change the creature names by the one you want and it will spawn.

      Currently it is not possible to summon a DodoRex on Xbox One. Hopefully it will become available during an event in the future.

      1. How do I use that command? Do point at the Dino or use it in the command string someplace when spawning it in?

  17. I’ve been trying forever to spawn anything in on my single player world. Yes everything is spelt right. Yes admin logging is on. Yes all quotations are in the right spot. I even tried using the example, type exactly what I saw and nothing happens. Very frustrating please help.

  23. Can you Spawn Lvl 10,0000 Dino’s on Xbox One? I tried and it didn’t work

    1. Author

      You should be able to do that, just make sure you don’t add any dots or commas when typing the level. However, it will revert back to a “normal” level after a server / single player restart, so keep that in mind

  24. You can now summon the dragon on Xbox. Code is
    Cheat Summon Dragon_Character_BP_C
    You might have to tame or defeat the brood mother first though.

    1. No you dont have to defeat or tame a brood mother

  25. Can anyone please tell me a good z and y offset so the dinos will spawn 5 to 10 feet ish in front of me not directly above?

  26. Can I just spawn in a dodorex or does it have to be during the event?

  27. Does it spawn them tamed or is there a different cheat for that

  28. If I wanted to spawn a level 1000 Raptor what would the cheat look like I’m a bit confused

  29. If I spawn a Dino will it outomaticaly be mine??
    I am scared if I spawn some thing it will kill all my Dino’s

    1. Author

      Dinos that you spawn in are wild, so you should spawn them at a place where they can’t do any harm until you have tamed them (either by knocking them out or by using forcetame or dotame)

  30. how come it wont let me spawn in anything

  31. My question is can you spawn annuaki genesis dinos on xbox one
