Learn all about the newly added tools and weapons as part of Ark Survival Evolved's Genesis Part 1 update with the help of our guide

If you are an Ark Survival Evolved player, you will know about the recently released fourth DLC pack for it called ARK Genesis. This pack includes a bunch of new things in the game or I would say a lot of new things. Here we will discuss the new Ark Genesis Tools and Weapons that have been added to the game.

ARK Genesis Tools and Weapons

So ARK Genesis has a set of new items like consumable, Resources, Structures and many other things. Some notable things in all of those are new Weapons and Tools that this DLC brings. Here we have the list of all the new weapons and tools for you.

Mining Drill
This is a jack of all trades kind of a primary high level harvesting tool. This machine will harvest anything from almost any source. This thing uses a laser to drill at a single point and it also has a risk of overheating if you use it for too long. This is a gasoline powered tool with a weight of 20 kg and a stack size of 20.

The required level for this tool is 80 and crafting XP is 360XP and crafting time is 15s. The ingredients that are required to build this tool are:

  • 132 × Polymer
  • 482 × Metal Ingot
  • 180 × Crystal
  • 120 × Cementing Paste
  • 36 × Black Pearl

You might not be able to get black pearls very easily nut all other materials are pretty easy to get and harvest. While for black pearls we recommend you to use hexagons to get them. The drill itself can harvest almost anything but do keep in mind that it has a small range.

Fish Net
This is another tool that you can see from the name is a fish net and obviously is used to catch fish. It is a available at level 6 and required crafting XP is just 2XP and crafting time is 5s. The required ingredients to build this fish net are:

  • 10 × Thatch
  • 3 × Stone
  • 15 × Fiber
  • 3 × Hide

The main plus point of the fishing over the fishing rod is that it does not require any bait to catch the fish. You just have to point to a fish and throw the net to catch the fish.

Tek Grenade Launcher
A very powerful weapon from the new DLC ARK Genesis, this grenade launcher can shoot many grenade types and can enable on-impact explosions. The weight of the weapon is 12 kg and the required crafting XP Is 360XP with crafting time of 15s. The items that are required to build this launcher are:

  • 180 × Polymer
  • 420 × Metal Ingot
  • 180 × Crystal
  • 40 × Element
  • 80 × Black Pearl
  • 60 × Electronics

You can get the black pearls easily the way it has been mentioned above.
