Ark Genesis 2 (Genesis: Part 2) contains various missions which can be completed individually or as a group. Each mission in Ark Genesis 2 has a difficulty rating – Alpha, Beta, and Gamma.
Some of the missions let you bring a tamed creature, whereas others will provide you with a high-level creature. If the mission you embark on doesn’t allow creatures, they will get left behind.
You can repeat missions in Genesis 2 as many times as you like.
To start a mission, you’ll need to do this near Eden or Rockwell Garden Mission Terminal.
Every mission in Ark Genesis 2 (except for Hunt) is set in a simulation, rather than the Ark game map.
Ark Genesis 2 Mission Types
There are several different mission types you can complete. Here’s an overview of all the mission types you will encounter in Ark Genesis part 2.
During a Hunt mission, you’ll need to follow tracks on the ground. Once you’ve followed the tracks, you’ll encounter Brute Creatures which you’ll need to defeat.
Each creature is marked with a dino skull combined with two swords.
Gauntlet is an arena-style mission that requires you to survive 5 rounds. Zone-specific dinos will spawn, meaning you’ll need to defeat them to move on to the next round.
While you can’t use any of your own weapons or dinos, you will be provided with spawned weapons.
Gauntlet missions on Gamma difficulty provide unlimited weapon ammo, marked with a three-dino skull symbol.
As the name suggests, Race missions require you to move as fast as you can while riding on a high-level dino. A dino will be given to you for the mission, marked with a flag symbol.
This mainframe simulation has a dungeon-esque feel to it, located in the Genesis ship. You’ll be required to clear twisted amalgamations and corrupted VR creatures.
In the Dungeon missions you can bring any armor and weapons you have, as well as 1 creature per survivor.
