For those in the mid-to-end game seeking more efficient island exploration and possessing the necessary resources to construct TEK items, this guide is tailored for you.

How Does the TEK Teleporter Work in ARK Survival Ascended?

The TEK Teleporter in ARK Survival Ascended is a structure designed for teleporting players, their dinosaurs, or other players across the map, connecting one teleporter to another. It comes in three sizes, with the small and medium sizes suitable for survivors and average-sized dinosaurs, while the large one can teleport even massive creatures like Gigas or Brontos.

Operating the teleporter incurs no cost, but it requires power from a Tek Generator. Enabling Public Teleportation allows other survivors who have unlocked the specific engram, to use the teleporter. Caution is advised to keep personal dinosaurs away from publicly available teleporters, as they can inadvertently teleport along with other players.

When initiating teleportation, available teleporters are displayed as bed icons on the pop-up. Renaming teleporters can aid in remembering their locations. Filling the entire base of the teleporter with foundations is a recommended tip to prevent tamed creatures from getting stuck underneath.
