The Gas Collector is a structure in the Aberration DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved. It functions as a resource collector, collecting the radioactive gas found within the gas vents of caves.

Gas Collectors need to be placed on top of Gas Veins that can be found on the Aberration map. The Gas Collector will slowly extract Congealed Gas Balls from the vein over time, which are used as a crafting ingredient. The collector will extract one Congealed Gas Ball every 20–25 seconds (seems to have some variance in interval), and can hold a total of 24 stacks of 100 Congealed Gas Balls.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Gas Collector (Aberration) is treated as a thatch structure and can be damaged by anything except non-explosive ranged attacks.
  • The glass section of the structure fills up based on the amount of gas balls in its inventory. This way it is possible to see its inventory status from the outside without opening the inventory.
  • The Gas Collector will slowly lose health over time (very slow). The gas is corrosive and damages the structure so it will need repair after some time.
  • The Gas Collector will take approximately 900 minutes to completely fill its inventory (with about 10 minutes possible variance due to the randomized generation interval).
