All Ark locations in Rage 2

You'll need to track down all the Ark locations in Rage 2 if you want to unlock powerful weapons and powers.

The most fun you’ll have in Rage 2 is taking part in as much of the blisteringly-paced combat as possible. Fancy weapons and suit powers are extremely entertaining, and will often give you the tools needed to succeed in the wasteland. Unlocking new weapons and powers means hunting down the many Arks that scatter the landscape, opening them up to uncover their treats. To help you make the most of your time, we’ve put together a guide of all Ark locations in Rage 2 that’ll have you tooled up and ready to kick ass in as little time as possible.

We’ve found a total of 13 Arks spread throughout the wasteland, and each is worth visiting to collect the fancy weapon or power contained within. You’ll find several of them during the game’s story, but you can also head out into the wilds to find them yourself, either through pure exploration or by following clues. Or, of course, you could just follow this guide instead. The choice is up to you, really, but let’s be honest here, this guide’s going to be easiest, isn’t it?

Arks are opened using your Focus power (hold L1 on PS4, LB on Xbox) once enemies nearby have been killed. We’ve detailed the location of each Ark below along with information on how to access it and how tough you should expect the fight to be. We've highlighted the general area for each Ark on the map above, but below we'll go into further details on all the Ark locations in Rage 2!

The last Ark is also located in The Wilds, this time right up in the far north. At the very center top of the region (and map), the Greenhaven Ark is an extremely tough challenge to take on.
