Although survival games are a lot of fun, sometimes it might be a little too much of a challenge.
This is where cheats can come in handy.
Whether you just want to have fun or you want a helping hand every so often, here's how to enter admin commands on ARK.
How To Enable Admin Commands ARK PS4
Firstly you'll need to open the cheat console.
This will vary depending on what platform you're on.
PS4 players will need to press the following buttons in this sequence: L1, R1, Square, and Triangle.
You should see a bar appear at the bottom of your screen.
Here you can enter whichever cheats you want to use.
Enter the same sequence of buttons to close the console.
If you're playing singleplayer these should work straight away.
Although, if you're on a multiplayer server you need to enter 'EnableCheats [Password]'.
Enter the admin password into the brackets.
