Rage 2 is out and it’s brilliant, mixing bombastic shooting with a deep and varied open world. Scattered across the irradiated landscape are Arks – huge vessels where you’ll find a boatload of loot, as well as the game’s best weapons and abilities.
You don’t actually visit most of them during the game’s relatively short story, so to get the most out of your time you’ll need to seek them out.
Below is every Ark location we’ve found so far in Rage 2, so you can barge your way through the pink post-apocalypse with glee.
We’ve also got a new trailer for the first Rage 2 expansion, Rise of the Ghosts, which is coming in August.
Rage 2 Ark locations
Like most open world games, there’s a fair bit of traversal to get from point A to point B. But in the case of Rage 2’s Arks, it’s worth it. Nestled inside each futuristic sky chest is a dangerous goodie to savour, whether that’s a tasty weapon, devastating power-up, or game-changing movement aid.
Marked on the maps below is everywhere you can find an Ark. Once you’ve discovered the area and battled your way inside, grab what you need and let rip.
Pay attention to the enemy difficulty of each Ark – this is the rough order at which you should attempt the challenge.
|Ark||Power Up||Enemy Difficulty|
|Junker's Pass Ark||Shatter||2|
|Great Crack Ark||Grav-Jump||3|
|Strongbox Ark||Smart Rocket Launcher||4|
|Canyon Cove Ark||Defibrillator||5|
|Shrouded Vault Ark||Charged Pulse Canon||6|
|Dank Catacomb Ark||Firestorm Revolver||7|
|Needle Falls Ark||Grav-Dart Launcher||7|
|Greenhaven Ark||Hyper-Cannon Railgun||10|
