The Barrel of Gunpowder is an Weapon in the Primitive+-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.


The barrel is placed and lit via a radial menu. There is a chance for the fuse timer to be 0 and the barrel explodes immediately. The blast radius is somewhat large and can damage 9 foundations in a square. Is able to destroy one Reinforced Wood Door in one blast.


  • When the barrel is crafted and stored for a long time, it has a tendency to disappear, even though that there is no spoil time.
