Overview[]

Charcoal is an item in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is created by burning Wood or Fungal Wood in a Campfire, Standing Torch, Wall Torch, Cooking Pot, Stone Fireplace, Refining Forge or Industrial Forge.

Production[]

The fastest way to produce Charcoal is to burn Wood in an Industrial Forge, this method produces one Charcoal per second. If no Industrial Forge is available, anything that can use Wood as fuel will yield one Charcoal every time the burning of the current fuel piece has ended (100 Wood becomes 100 Charcoal, but the first only appears when the 2nd fuel is consumed and the last only when it has finished burning).

On The Center, Charcoal can be gathered from the Burnt Trees on Lava Biome, Half-Burnt Island, and Scorched Island. On Ragnarok, Charcoal can be gathered from the Burnt Trees on Volcano Plains. On Valguero, Charcoal can be gathered from the Burnt Trees on The Great Trench.

Crafting[]

Charcoal can be used to Craft Gunpowder, the Smoke Grenade, and the Poison Grenade.

It is also needed to Craft several Dye.
