There are 12 Arks in total in Rage 2. Within each of the Arks listed above, you'll always get either a weapon or an ability, each of which drastically changes the nature of the entire game.
Rage 2 Canyon Cove Ark
Canyon Cove is well worth seeking out for the Defibrilator ability. With an enemy level of 5 it should be a breeze.
Rage 2 Dank catacomb Ark
Completing The Dank Catacombs will get you the Firestorm Revolver. It's one of the most satisfying weapons in the game, allowing you to tag enemies and then set them on fire with a click of your finger.
Rage 2 Dealpipe Ark
The Rush Ability is essential if you want to take on some of Rage 2's faster enemies. Head to Dealpipe to get it.
Rage 2 Earthscar Ark
The Earthscar Ark is home to the Slam Ability. This is great for knocking back droups of enemies, and for detonating nearby explosives.
Rage 2 Great Crack Ark
To the Great Crack Ark now. You'll get the Grav-Jump ability, which you'll need for some of the platforming puzzles later on.
Rage 2 Greenhaven Ark
If you want the Hyper-Cannon, you'll need to go to Greenhaven. It's got a 10 in terms of enemy difficulty, so proceed with caution or save it until last.
Rage 2 Junker's Pass Ark
The Junker's Pass Ark will give you the Shatter Ability. This is essential for shielded enemies, which you'll start running into a few hours into the game.
Rage 2 Needle Falls Ark
Head to Needle Falls now and seek out the Ark. Inside is the Grav-Dart Launcher, which is well worth picking up.
Rage 2 Quake Hills Ark
The Vortex ability will help you when taking on Bandit Camps. To get it, head to the location shown in the image above.
Rage 2 Shrouded Vault Ark
Next up is the Charged Pulse Cannon. It's located at the Shrouded Vault Ark to the south of the map.
Rage 2 Spikewind Ark
An enemy difficulty of 6 here, though it's worth the trouble to get to the Ark. This is because it has the Barrier Ability inside.
Rage 2 Strongbox Ark
Finally, the best weapon in the game: the Smart Rocket. It is found at the Strongbox Ark, with an easy enemy difficulty of 4.
What Are Rage 2 Arks?
Rage 2 never really explains the lore behind the Arks. Simply put, they're capsules of technology that have presumably been around since before the apocalypse first happened. Now, they're simply sat in the middle of nowhere, waiting for a Ranger (like you), to come along and open them up by using the power of Focus. Using your Focus ability is the only way of opening up Arks, so it stands to reason that only Rangers of the wasteland can open them up.
Which Rage 2 Arks to Find First
As for the Arks that you should be finding first in Rage 2, you should be going for either the Canyon Cove or the Earthscar Ark. The first of these provides you with the Defibrillator ability, essential for reviving yourself when your health reaches zero, while the latter Ark gives you the Slam ability, which is great for clearing out enemies really quickly.
As for weapons, the Strongbox Ark is a must. This gives you the Smart Rocket Launcher, which is not only the most powerful weapon in Rage 2, but also has a great alternate fire mode where the weapon locks on to multiple targets, before firing off a barrage of rockets at said targets.
