The Tek Gauntlets are a hands-slot armor piece from the Tek Armor set.


When wearing the Tek Gauntlets, the wearer can perform a super punch by holding Right-Click Rmb (PC) and releasing when you see a green crosshair on your target, which has a base damage of 450 that scales with the melee stat and can damage multiple enemies if they are in close proximity. When targeting trees and rocks, the punch can also be used for harvesting. You can also use this with Tek Leggings to perform an attack from above.

In ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile, the Tek Gauntlets provides the survivor with a +10% speed increase, a +10% damage increase, and a -20% fall damage decrease when powered. However, the Tek Gauntlets do not enable the wearer to perform a super punch.

If you are fully encumbered, you can use the gauntlets to get into the air. Combined with the Tek Chestpiece and the Tek Leggings you can carry massive amounts of items across long distances.

To use with Shields Rmb must be held first and then Lmb is held


The Engram is unlocked by defeating Gamma Megapithecus Megapithecus, Gamma Manticore Manticore, Gamma Rockwell Rockwell, Forest Titan Forest Titan, or Gamma Crystal Wyvern Queen Crystal Wyvern Queen and must be unlocked in order to equip this item. Defeating the more difficult versions will also give the player the engram. You can also get higher quality versions (~1940 armour, ~1500 durability) of this item from The Mosa Proposal (Genesis: Part 1).
