How to make meat spoil faster In Ark: Survival Evolved

Find out the fastest way to spoil meat in this guide for Ark: Survival Evolved

Spoiled meat is a vital resource in the hit survival game Ark, as you require the material to make narcotics, which opens up taming in the game. However, getting Spoiled Meat is a bit of a grind as you have to wait for a timer to finish until meat spoils, and if you have a lot of meat, the spoil timer is even longer. Luckily in this guide, we will explain how you can speed this process up, so here is how to make meat spoil faster in Ark: Survival Evolved.

How to spoil meat faster in Ark Survival Evolved

Disclaimer: The Method below is outdated and unfortunately no longer works due to being patched.

To start, if you have a lot of meat in a single stack, we recommend splitting it immediately because if you leave it as is, you will have to wait for each piece of meat to spoil one after another. That said, the best way to speed this process up without downloading any mods or by using a cheat is to find a storage container and split a single stack into all of the slots. That way, instead of waiting for heaps of meat to spoil one by one, they will spoil all at once. 

To recap, follow the steps below to spoil meat faster in Ark.

  • Find a chest; we recommend a large chest so you can spoil a lot of meat at once.
  • Then split one stack into stacks of one or maybe four, depending on how long you want to wait.
  • Wait for the timer, and then boom, you now have a ton of spoiled meat, and you can just rinse and repeat as many times as needed.

  1. I don’t know what version of ARK this was written for, but as of today (and this has been this way for at least quite a while), items going into a container stack automatically and are not able to be split within the container. Therefore, this method unfortunately no longer works.
