The Rex Tek Saddle is used to ride a  Rex after you have tamed it. It is an upgraded version of the  Rex Saddle.


In addition to providing more armor than the regular saddle, pressing the melee key (default Ctrl) while riding a Rex with the Tek Saddle will activate a laser helmet.

This helmet can fire laser projectiles in front of the Rex, which deal explosive damage and can destroy structures. It deals around ~60 damage against Metal structures and ~1300 against Thatch structures.

This weapon:

  • Has a rate of fire of about 2 projectiles per second.
  • Costs 4% energy per projectile.
  • Has no auto-fire. You have to click for every shot.
  • Only uses  Element from the Rex inventory.
  • One Element gives the Rex Tek Saddle 25 projectile shots.
  • However this function doesn't exist in ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile


The Engram is obtained by defeating the Alpha  Megapithecus, the Alpha  Manticore, Alpha (Aberration)  Rockwell or the  Forest Titan.


  • Like all Tek-nologies, Rex Tek Saddle can not be used inside Boss Arenas, though it can be equipped.
