How to Disable BattlEye Anti-Cheat on Your ARK Server

For some specific setups of ARK servers, it may be required to disable the built-in BattlEye Anti-Cheat. This guide shows you how to do so by disabling it using your server's properties file.

  1. Stop your server. This is required before making any changes to server configuration files.
  2. Navigate to the Files > Config Files section of your ARK server on the Multicraft panel.
  3. Click on ARK Server Settings to open up your ARK server's file.
  4. Change the value for BattlEye Anti-Cheat from Enabled to Disabled, then scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save.
  5. Start your server again. Your server's anti-cheat should now be disabled!
