The Tek Transmitter is an end-game tool in ARK: Survival Evolved. It functions as a portable Obelisk.

Acquiring[edit | edit source]

The Tekgram is unlocked by defeating either Dragon (Beta) or Crystal Wyvern Queen (Beta). Defeating the higher difficulty versions will also give the player the engram. The Transmitter can no longer be acquired on The Center.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Just like with regular Obelisks, you can upload items, characters and creatures and download them on other ARKs. It can no longer be used to do bosses. When activated it shoots a beam of light into the sky similar to a beacon.

It also allows the transfer of water dinos to other ARKS, which could only be done through Deep Sea Loot Crates or an underwater Supply Crates before cryopods.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Tek Transmitter does not require any sort of fuel to run.
  • Shooting at a Tek Transmitter using the Tek Rifle causes blood splatters instead of default damage particles (like hitting by hand)
  • Items transferred through the transmitter can not be accessed from tribe mates
  • You can not travel to other servers with boss battle tribute items (see CrossARK Transfers).

Painting and Color Regions[edit | edit source]
