Recently we learned the list of Tekgrams and what Tek will be available on day 1 in ARK: Survival Ascended. Let's take a look.

With ARK: Survival Ascended’s release just around the corner at the end of October 2023, Studio Wildcard dropped a tweet that will light up your early ARK remake experience. All Tekgrams and gear from The Island map will drop on day one. It’s a game-changer, and many players, especially those who play PvP, will speed run to it. But first, let’s make sure everyone’s on the same page about what Tek is. Also, we list all Tek gear that you’ll be able to get in the ARK: Survival Ascended base game.

What’s Tek in ARK: Survival Ascended & Tekgrams List Available Day 1

What’s Tek in Ark, you ask? Tek is like the high-tech stuff of ARK: Survival Evolved from advanced weapons to futuristic building pieces and devices such as cloning chambers or generators. You’ll find it pretty unique because it’s all about giving you, the player, some seriously powerful gear and gadgets to mix into the wild world of prehistoric tools, dinosaurs, and more.

The unique thing about Tek is you can’t get it through leveling like other Engrams, such as better weapons or structures. Those sci-fi technologies that are closer to “tech-magic” are only unlockable as a reward for beating the Island bosses: Broodmother Lysrix, Megapithecus, Dragon, and finally the Overseer.

Limited Tek Gear at ARK: Survival Ascended Effects and Implications

New Server Hosting Options in ARK Survival Ascended - Cross-Save

The lack of high-tech, especially Teak gear, and weapons, will reshape the ARK experience, adding potential implications of ARK: Survival Ascended. Picture this: no more cryopods from the Extinction DLC, and other gear like the Tek Grenade Launcher from Genesis Part 1 DLC, the Tek Sleeping Pod from Aberration DLC, or even the Tek Lights from Ragnarok will be missing in action. It’s a game-changer, especially for the PvP players.

This will highly influence the PvP, PvE, and community servers, changing the game and player dynamic. The absence of cryopods, in particular, is a disadvantage. Without these, your endgame adventure will demand more time and dedication, and players will need to adapt and stick to creature management from the gameplay’s early stages. With the advanced weaponry, Tek Shield, Tek Sword, Tek Grenade Launcher, and other Tekgrams taking a backseat, players will need to adjust to more primitive ARK technology. It’s a whole new survival challenge. Will it make the game better, or trying?

Whether you’re a fresh ARK player, who’s only known the world of Tek or a veteran remembering the days when Longneck Rifle was the best weapon in the game and the best way to tame a dino primitive Tranquilizer arrows, this transition will impact us all. It’s a chance to step back in time to ARK’s early years when survival tech was far more basic and the thrill of the game took on a different flavor.

Get ready for a whole new level of adventure with ARK: Survival Ascended. It will for sure reshape your ARK survival story.
