How to find all Rage 2 Ark locations

Learn how to find all of the Rage 2 Ark locations and unlock all the various weapons and abilities in Walker's arsenal.


Rage 2 is all about the combat, and having access to all the hard-hitting weapons and abilities in Walker’s arsenal will be vital to your success as a Ranger. In this guide we’ll go over all of the Rage 2 Ark locations so that you can find them quickly.

All Rage 2 Ark locations

There are 13 Arks that players can visit and unlock in Rage 2. Each one of these Arks contains some kind of weapon or ability for players to add to their arsenal. Players will come across some of these Arks throughout the main story. However, others will require them to either find them randomly, or unlock clues about their locations through intel that can be found throughout the world. We’ve broken down each Ark’s location below, as well as provided a location of each Ark on the map, so use this information to find each one and unlock them all.

Vineland Ark

The first Ark that players will visit is found right at the start of the game, after Vineland is attacked. You can’t miss it. Simply follow the instructions, head inside the Ranger’s base, and you’ll be introduced to your first Ark, as well as your first Nanotrite ability.

Players can find the next Ark in the northernmost section of the world. While exploring The Wilds, look for this Ark in the southwestern corner of the region.

Greenhaven Ark

rage 2 - greenhaven ark

The final Ark that players can clear in Rage 2 is found in the northern area of The Wilds region, at the top of the map. This is by far the most difficult Ark to clear out, so make sure you have all of the abilities, weapons, and ammunition you need to do so. I’d even suggest grabbing the BFG 9000 before making your way here, if you can.

  • Ark difficulty rating: 10

Now that you’ve found all of the Arks in Rage 2, you should have unlocked all of the main weapons and abilities. You can return to our Rage 2 guides hub for more help navigating the wastelands, and be sure to follow Shacknews on Twitter to keep up with the rest of our content.
