Astroneer Wiki

Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.

Canisters are containers that hold various items.

Small Canister[]

Small Canisters are crafted in the Backpack and allow for easy manipulation of terrain. These are also used to fill Soil Centrifuges directly.

Medium Fluid & Soil Canister[]

Medium Fluid & Soil Canisters are crafted in the Small Printer and allows for greater storage of Soil and Hydrazine, up to 24 times the amount that a Small Canister can hold. Small Canisters can both deposit and withdraw soil from the Medium Fluid & Soil Canister, allowing for some automation of filling a Soil Centrifuge. These also pair well with Pavers and Drills to quickly gather soil and pave pathways.

Medium Resource Canister[]

Medium Resource Canisters are crafted in the Small Printer and allows players to store one kind of Resource at a time, holding 32 nuggets (8 more nuggets than a Medium Storage Silo). They are useful when used with other Automation items.

Medium Gas Canister[]

Medium Gas Canisters are crafted in the Small Printer and allows players to store more of one gas than other storage items allow, can hold up to 32 full canisters or 160 units of a single Atmospheric Resource. They cannot hold other types of resources, including Hydrazine, as it is a liquid.

Large Resource Canister[]

Large Resource Canisters are crafted in the Medium Printer and allows players to store the maximum amount of resources possible, at 400. This is 16 greater than a Large Storage Silo B holding 12 Medium Resource Canisters. When paired with other Automation items, they can allow players to craft a great amount of items without needing to interact with modules.

Other Canisters[]

Items such as Atmospheric Resources and Hydrazine come in their own versions of canisters, which disappear once the resource inside is used up.
