Below you can find each type and a summary.

Harvesting

Harvesting by hand is one of the slowest ways to gain XP.

If you create higher-level tools which yield more resources, you'll gain more XP.

Though this still won't be a substantial amount.

Crafting

Crafting is one of the main ways that players will gain XP.

The more resources you need to create something, the more XP you'll receive for making it.

Hunting

Killing creatures in ARK will give you XP.

The amount of XP will be determined by the level and hostility of the animal.

For example, a Dodo will give you some XP but a more dangerous species like a Giga will give you alot more.
