Absorbent Substrate is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is currently only used to craft the Gas Mask and Night Vision Goggles

Obtaining[]

  • Since this can only be crafted in the Chemistry Bench the cost is always multiplied by 4 and the output by 6. You need at least 8 ×  Black Pearl, 8 ×  Sap and 8 ×  Oil and you will receive 6 Absorbent Substrate. You can also find it in supply crates.
  • Absorbent Substrate can drop from killing Tusoteuthis.
  • Absorbent Substrate can drop as rare loot when catching fish with a Fishing Rod. This way, it can be obtained without having to hunt for Black Pearls.
