How to Obtain Flint in Ark Survival Ascended ASA
You get Flint from the rock, and they are everywhere, no matter the weather condition or climate of the region. You will even get them near your base camps too, so you just need equipment that can break the rock and give your Flint. Metal Pick, Excavation Rig, and several other equipment can be used for the process, but as a beginner crafting Stone Pick, should be your priority. To make that you need three items.
- 1 Stone: Gathering stones is simple, you just need to find them and press E on the PC and Y on the controller to pick and add them to your inventory.
- 1 Wood: You can get wood by hitting a tree with punches. And like rock and stone, trees are everywhere. Look for the one near your base camp and hit it, till you get the Wood.
- 10 Thatch: Most of the time attacking trees barehanded gives you Thatch, rather than Wood. So you’ll be able to collect both with the same method.
Now, once you have gathered all these items, go to the crafting and create the Stone Pick. Then find a rock and hit it with the Stone Pick, till you get Flint.
