Best ARK PVP Servers

Top 5 ARK PVP Servers

“Do you have what it takes to survive these servers?”

Salty Zombies runs one of the world’s most popular ARK PVP Servers. In addition, we are one of the few ARK PVP Servers that host all 12 maps as a single PVP Cluster. Not to mention we run full 12 maps PVE Cluster as well. We know that ARK PVP or even PVP in any game can bring a lot of toxicity and negative energy. 

If it’s one thing we are proud of, it’s keeping the toxicity and generally annoying trolling players to a minimum. We have a great ARK community that enjoys playing the game for what it is, and we hope you will join us and be part of it.

ARK PVP Server Rules

Keeping the peace in a not so peaceful world

No Hacking or Exploits

Do not use any hacks, 3rd party tools or exploits on our ARK Primal Fear Server. Doing so will get you permanently banned. If you find a glitch or exploit, report it to our admins. We actively reward players who report glitches, hacks or exploits. If you know a group of players who uses such hacks or exploits, you can also be banned by association.

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 brain and common sense to make the right choices and not attempt to find loopholes or such around the rules.

No Sexual Text/Images/Videos

Any sexualized content is never allowed on our ARK RP Servers. Additionally, posting any content of this nature, whether it be images or text, will result in being permanently banned from our ARK Discord and ARK Role Playing Servers.

No Popcorning

Popcorning is despawning your items in your base when you’re being raided. If you are losing and your base being raided is inevitable, just take the hit and learn from it. Despawning your items is a dick move and will get you banned.

Impersonating Staff

Pretending to be staff to manipulate another player in any way will result in an immediate ban.

Toxicity Policy

We don’t mind a little banter here and there, but we will step in if the attacks become personal such as doxing, threatening or just overly toxic. However, discussions on sensitive subjects such as Politics, Religion, or heated current events won’t be tolerated. If you wish to have such discussions or debates, then do so in a private conversation.

Don't Spam / Advertise

Do not spam or advertise other servers or Discords in our ARK Roleplaying server. Nor are you allowed to advertise another community, brand or URL in your game or Tribe name. Doing so will get you banned.

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 and interacting with players on our ARK RP Servers.

Legitimate Name

You must always use legitimate characters, tribes and dino names. Using emojis or symbols not found in the English alphabet is forbidden. The names “Human”, “Survivor”, “Admin”, “GM”, “Player”, “123”, “321”, “OneTwoThree”, “□□□”, or anything similar is not allowed.

No Teaming

Simple one, don’t team up with other tribes to take out another. Stick to the tribe limit.

ARK PVP Server Mods

These mods are auto download on server entry

Super Structures

It seems like building a base in ARK was almost an afterthought. Luckily there are great mods like Structures Plus and Super Structures. This mod, Super Structures, is a fork of the famous Structures Plus building mod. It has everything that mod has but more. It is the ultimate base-building tool for our ARK PVP Server.

Bitou2k's Binocular

With over 1 million subscriptions, Bitou2ks Binoculars has become one of the most popular ARK mods in the world. Its the ultimate long range reconnaissance spy glass tool there is and a must-have on any ARK PVP Server.

Ark Additions

The ARK Additions mod adds a wide variety of new creatures. Initially once all singular mods, now combined into a more optimized and easily maintained mod.

Better Horde Mode

A well-sought-after fix for those OSDs and Element Veins. After a certain amount of time, this mod will mark those hostiles with a bright beacon so that you can find their locations.

ARK PVP Economy

When you play on our ARK PVP Servers, you get a virtual currency called Salty Coins. The more you play, the more you earn, and you can use these Salty Coins to buy in-game items. You also get an increase of Salty Coins earned if you purchase one of the Ranks below. For example, depending on your chosen rank, you could earn between 10% to 40% more Salty Coins.

We also added the ability to earn Salty Coins by either voting for our ARK PVP Server or buying them directly. We also understand that not everyone has the time to grind out or play for hours. In addition, some of us have work and a family to care for, so we have also enabled you to buy Salty Coins in the store.

        You can open a ticket in our Discord if you have any issues. There is a Help channel. Click on the ARK Button, and a ticket will be created between you and the ARK Moderator team. When opening up a ticket, please include as much information s possible.
