Best locations for farming metal

The best place to farm metal in Ark Survival Evolved is from the rocks at the very top of the mountains. To do so, you need to head over to rainforest biome areas of the in-game world.  To make things easy for you, we have marked and mentioned all the coordinates in which Metal is found in abundance:

Some of the coordinates where you can farm metal in abundance are:

Location 1

LAT: 21

LON: 52

Location 2

LAT: 40

LON: 37

Location 3

LAT: 35

LON: 78

Location 4

LAT: 76

LON: 47

To prepare yourself, you need some Stimulants, Waterskin, and around 10 spears. Avoid engaging any predators to the best of your ability and only sprint when you’re left with no alternative.

You need to climb as far as you can – to the point where the ground will transform into a grey color, trees will decrease in number, and the slope will become less steep.

Throughout your climb, you’ll come across several predators, some harmless ones and some deadly ones.

And this is where your spears come in handy. While you’re scavenging, make sure to have your bed, Waterskin, Campfire, Wood, Thatch, and other consumables. Once you’ve acquired around 14 metals, you can climb down to safety.

Once you’ve found ingots, you’ll either need to be Level 25 or learn the Smithy Engram. The Smithy Workshop requires 5 Metal Ingots. Do note that both the Smithy Workshop and Mortar and Pestle Workshop kind of work in the same manner.

After setting everything up, you need to craft Metal Pick. Once you’ve acquired the Metal Pick, your chances of acquiring Metal from the rocks on the high mountain increase to around 50%.
