Weapon mechanics describe the characteristics of the different weapons in ARK: Survival Evolved.
Reload Time (theoretical)
How much time it takes when you empty your magazine until it is filled again. Theoretical means that it is the time until the weapon is loaded in your inventory (not how long it takes until you are able to shoot again), this means that you can reload cancel at this point or put your gun away and it is loaded next time you pull it out.
|Weapon||Reload Time (s)|
|Crossbow w/ Grappling Hook||00.66|
|Fabricated Sniper Rifle||04.24|
Draw time is defined as the time it takes between hitting the use button on an item and actually being able to pull it out and use it.
|Weapon||Draw time (s)|
|Fabricated Sniper Rifle||01:00|
Please keep in mind that these are tested manually. There can be a small delay between actually being able to fire and hitting the fire button due to human mistakes.
