The Compass is a tool in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can help you find your way around the many diverse maps. The blue arrow on the Compass will always point north and is therefore very useful (Pre-Patch 278), especially if coupled with a map.
- With Patch 278, the Compass is practically redundant with the show player map location setting enabled, as the map's player icon is now an arrow, showing your pointed direction.
