Where to Farm Metal Location in ARK: Survival Ascended
Hey there, fellow survivors! Looking to beef up your arsenal and fortify your base in ARK Survival Ascended? You’re going to need loads of metal for that. It’s like the in-game equivalent of hitting the jackpot. Metal’s what you need to craft those top-notch tools, weapons, and that shiny armor that’ll make the dinosaurs think twice before they try to snack on you. So, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty of snagging those shiny silver and gold-streaked rocks, shall we?
Where to Find Metal Nodes on the Map?
Let’s talk about metal nodes. You know, those greyish rocks that look like they’ve been sprinkled with glitter? Those bad boys are usually chilling out in the high places – think mountains, caves, and that scary volcano. And here’s a pro tip: ditch the stone pick and go for a metal one. It’s the difference between pocket change and hitting the lottery when it comes to how much metal you’ll get. To craft one, you’ll need a Refining Forge to turn that raw metal into something more… shiny.
Okay, so you’re probably wondering, “Where do I go?” Here’s the lowdown on the hottest metal node spots:
- The Volcano: It’s smack dab in the middle of the map, and yes, it’s as hot as it sounds. But brave the heat and the hungry critters, and you’ll hit the metal motherlode.
- The Frozen Tooth: Tucked away in the northwest, this frosty peak’s got caves packed with metal. Just pack a sweater ’cause it’s pretty nippy up there, and the locals aren’t too friendly.
- The Grand Hills: Picture this: rolling hills, waterfalls, cliffs, and – you guessed it – metal nodes aplenty. It’s in the northeast, and it’s a sight for sore eyes… and axes!
- The Red Peak: Down southeast, this mountain’s got a sunburn, and it’s loaded with metal. Watch your back, though; there’s more than just trees in those woods.
- The Blue Obelisk: Last but not least, check out the glowy blue structure in the southwest. It’s not just for show – there’s metal galore. But a word of caution: it’s a popular hangout spot, so expect some company.
How to Use Metal for Crafting in ARK Survival Ascended?

And that’s the scoop on becoming a metal mogul in ARK Survival Ascended. Knowing where to look and what to do is half the battle.
