Welcome to the most tweaked and customized ARK PVE server in the world. At Salty Zombies, our team has spent countless days, if not weeks, tailoring every single .INI file, setting and modding out every bug and exploit possible. The result? An award-winning ARK PVE server, taken care of and looked after like no other server.

So, if you enjoy honing your survival skills in beautiful but deadly environments, building structures, homes, and bases with unlimited creativity and possibilities, and taming and breeding armies of powerful dinosaurs with immense abilities, then join the best community on the web as we explore Ark: Survival Evolved.

Salty Zombies’ ARK PVE server doesn’t allow base raiding, owned dino killing, or other forms of griefing, and violators will be banned from our servers.

ARK PVE Server Info

We run the entire 12-map ARK PVE Cluster on a single Dedicated beast of a server. This makes the cluster more efficient for many reasons. 1, if the cluster were split between different servers, it would create issues and lag when you transfer your character from one map to another. 2nd reason we bought an entire dedicated server for just ARK is that having all 12 maps PVE Cluster takes up quite a bit of resources and adds a lot of players to that, and it’s a lot of stress on the server hardware. However, our dedicated server has enough resources to handle 3x 12 map ARK PVE Cluster. This gives us the ability to hold many players and keep the server running smoothly, bettering your gaming experience.

ARK PVE Server Rules & Verfication

Keeping the peace in a not so peaceful world

Exploits | Glitches | Hacking

We take hacking and exploits very seriously on our ARK PVE Server. If you locate a glitch in-game, we encourage you to report it via our support tickets system in Discord. Doing so will earn you rewards. If you take advantage of an exploit or hide someone in your friend list using an exploit, you and your entire group can be permanently banned on all our servers. We actively reward players who report glitches/hacks/exploits for us to fix.

Common Sense Policy

Our common sense rule is just that if something is common sense, but it isn’t outright listed on the rules above, then use your head and common sense to make the right choices and not attempt to find loopholes or such around the rules.

Toxicity Policy

We stand firm in your ability to have a free and open dialogue. You will not be punished for expressing your views openly. Our support team will only step into bantering or conversation when attacks become personal or threatening. It’s important to understand that bantering is 100% allowed and not something we will not punish our players for it. However, any talk on politics, religious or controversial topics is prohibited.

The most important rule!

Make friends and have a good time! It’s important to understand that these are game servers to allow you to escape from real-world drama. So have fun and have a good time. Try making friends while gaming!

PLEASE NOTE: Even though this is an ARK PVE Server and players can not damage your base, they will still try to find other means of getting inside and stealing your stuff or mess around with your sleeping body. Yes, this is against the rules, and we will know who it is and ban them. However, we will not replace any lost or stolen items. So make sure your base is secure, including from the roof and windows. Lock up all your boxes, all your doors etc.
