10 Best Base Locations on Extinction in Ark: Survival Evolved

These are some of the best locations you can find on the Extinction map to build your dream base in Ark: Survival Evolved.

The Extinction expansion offers resources in bulk; you won’t have any issues building castles, towers, or anything your creativity demands here.


These are some of the best locations on the Ark: Survival Evolved Extinction map where you can build a sustainable base. These locations have the best materials around them, are secure and some even offer a killer view. Let’s take a look at the locations without wasting much time!

1. City Wall (61.4-48.9)

The first best base location in the Center City is just below the ramp. You get a large area with a completely smooth and flat surface. By taking a look around, you get that there are many building areas, such as you have got a roof at the top of your location.

Also, you can utilize the ramps while constricting a base. Some places allow you to build gates; besides this, you also build stuff on the upper side. This base location is best for both PVE and PVP bases.

So it’s like a whole package that comes with a lot of benefits.

2. Tall Ledged Building (48.7-68.2)

The next base location is a Skyscraper. This high building has an even surface. There are many flat surfaces on this whole structure for you to build on. The base building area starts from the bottom to the top and reaches to the other side, providing you with enough space.

To move from the upper to the lower side or vice versa, you can make teleporters to get to the desired place quickly. Build them in any area you want, as building things here is all up to you.


This Skyscraper also gives a great view by being on height and appears as a unique destination.

3. Wasteland Platform (62.9-16.5)

After reading the name, you may think about what useful materials or locations can exist here, right? But let us tell you that this place is not totally a waste as you have a unique area to build your base on.

This area is small, and its frontal side looks like a hexagon, and you can build above and below it. There is also a ramp, and by going further, you get to see a big backside area with much more space than in front, and to the right, there is more area for you to use.

Also, the water runs at the back of this building, providing resources for your dinos and other tameable creatures for breeding and nurturing.

4. Desert Waterfalls (78.6-79.3)

The desert locations are mostly boring and dry, but what makes this one distinct and best base location is that there are waterfalls. These waterfalls run in this desert area and have made the surface watery, making it a great place for base construction.

You can build an amazing base on these water surfaces, but you need to know that desert Titan is more likely to spawn here, making this location a bit risky. But if you are a pro and can build a base that can even challenge the Titan,

Then it will be a win-win situation for you. Rest the location is overall perfect to be picked.

5. Map Center (50.7-43.1)

This location lies in the map’s center, so it won’t be difficult to find, and it seems to be the best location for the PVE bases. This place is pretty cool as there is water alongside the grassy surfaces, and have a whole ring structure built above it.


There are also bridges on the land side and other things that can be rebuilt. You can turn this place into a nicer base location and make a taming zone here. It allows you to implement a variety of ideas here, so utilize the area as you desire.

6. Palm Platform (46.7-35.1)

In the city center, we have this one best location as well. The area is built on a higher surface with a tower base. There is also a waterfall on the lower side, making it look aesthetically pleasing.

This current location is fine and has some palm trees planted on it, maybe that’s why it is called a Palm Platform, and it has a flat surface area. By staying high, you get a better view of your surroundings.

So, however, wants to have their base in a cool place, then they must try this one.

7. Green Ob (51.0-29.0)

This is an enormous location with tons of dynamics. If you are thinking about making something massive, this place is for you. There are many locations like ramps, and you can build on it’s both sides.

Moreover, the waterfall surface is also a splendid area for the base building. There are also some areas on the side of the location that can also be used. There is so much to try out; this is an excellent place.

The location is all yours with several opportunities, so it depends on you how efficiently you work here.

8. Flat Snow Mountain (31.1-82.6)

Moving on to the next location, which is on the snowy mountains. It is a perfect spot for those who prefer cold locations over hotter ones like deserts. This mountain has flat surfaces, making it stand out among the other mountains in the snow biome. 


The downside here is that it is located in quite a higher place, so it gets difficult for people to get stuff up there, but considering all other factors, this location is fascinating, and there is also a water resource on the rear side. So it has many plus points regarding the base building.

9. Snow Crown Cliff (17.1-87.7)

This base location is known as Crown Cliff due to the sharp and spiky structures around the base location. You get a clean even surface in the middle of spikes to build your base. The spikes can also be included when you are constructing your base.

Work here can be done creatively to make it look more magnificent, as this place already appears charming. You can also consider the cliff area to serve you a particular purpose. Another significant factor is that:

The Ice Titan spawns nearby your base location, so be prepared for this as well.

10. Fallen Ob (24.8-22.2)

The last location is the Fallen Ob, which is in the aberration zone. This location is also spacious. You can start building based on the cliff on the side of this obelisk, or as you get inside, you come across the larger area and other cliffs.

The inner side has many places; you can connect the platforms and create a path or area where your base can be set rightly. It is a fantastic location for the PVE base building.

Are These Areas Dangerous?

Most of the areas in Extinction offer high altitude, which keeps you away from the predators but do watch out for other players and build wisely.

Should You Always Build Toward the Center of the Map?

Yes, building toward the central part of the map means access to valuable and rare resources without much hassle. It will also help you save time and cut the distances short for you when getting back to your base after all the grind.


So always make sure to find base locations that are towards the center, as they are the ones that provide the most value if used properly.

These were some of the best base locations we could find on the Extinction map of ARK: Survival Evolved. That’s it for now, guys, and we’ll see you in the next base location guide.
