The beginner’s ARK Guide – 13. Supply Drops

A supply crate is dropped down from the sky in a beam of light. Each beam of light color, determines the minimum required level for each crate.



Beacons spawn in place places, even though their density Varies between areas, with increased threatening or difficult to get are as regularly reported to have more supply drops. Even a beacon spawn point will randomly spawn beacons of probable colours, together with higher-level colors being warmer than lesser degrees; beacons will quit spawning when your structure is set too close.


After a beacon initially jelqing, a large, tangled net of lights Is visible in the exact top. This also signals that the supply crate have not yet reached the floor. The supply crate is going to have a short while to descend; by the space it is considered a glowing orb moving the beacon, while upward close the form of the true crate might be viewed. After the supply crate strikes the floor, the interrelated web of lights round the beacon evaporates, and also the beacon looks as a marginally shorter spire of lighting that tapers towards the surface. The supply crate drops with 100 health insurance and slowly decays as time passes, and pops apart if its health reaches 0 if it’s looted by means of a new player. The cage’s wellbeing doesn’t have any bearing over the loot found indoors.


Although extremely helpful, There Are Numerous dangers Related to beacons. It’s not a good idea to stand directly from the ray of light whilst the supply crate descends as when it strikes the ball player, the gamer drops through the earth into water, and also drowns or has to float into the ocean so as to flee (This type of insect, present at the time of v.186). In addition, a beacon lights that the nearby area glaringly, also this light fades unexpectedly whenever the supply crate is looted or de-spawns, potentially leaving a new player who’d depended upon this particular light disoriented or blind. At length, beacons around PvP servers draw additional players, who’ll generally fight eachother to your cage’s contents.


A few beacon spawn points are all Overwater and also the participant needs to Squeeze water into loot the crate. The others have been blocked by trees. Supply crates goes through trees to property on a lawn, but some crates might not be accessible as a result of, as an instance, spawning within a very steep incline (including the stones by the Obelisks).


Supply crates Can’t be discharged by a participant whose degree will be Less compared to beacon’s.

Known Issues

  • Supply crates are able to, on occasion, clip through structures that are in the way.
  • Be careful while standing under a supply crate as it can push you through the ground.
  • Drop rate for compass, medium crop plot, and water jar blueprints is excessively high (approximately 80-90%) for blue, purple, and yellow drops. Due to this, they are far less valuable to those who are hunting for them and the items in them. Many players won’t bother looking for these beacons, because that’s often times all there is to be found in them.
