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.

The EXO Cares Initiative was a Limited Time Event in Astroneer. It was added with the Missions, Power, and Compass Update, and was accessible through the EXO Request Platform. It ran from March 31, 2021 to June 21, 2021, with the main objective of the initiative to clean up the planets in exchange for exclusive rewards. It was a return of the EXO Salvage Initiative event, offering players the chance to unlock the previous year's cosmetics, as well as new cosmetics.

Recovery Points[]

Recovery Points are the basic currency gained when turning in items for in-game events through the EXO Request Platform. For the Cares Initiative, the following table lists the point value of each item available to be turned in.

Salvage Size Points Value
Debris Bundle 5 Recovery Points per Debris (25 for full bundle)
Scrap 50 Recovery Points
Small Debris Pack 100 Recovery Points
Medium Debris Pack 300 Recovery Points


The Cares Initiative rewards both Care Packages and cosmetics, with Care Packages being minor milestones marked by arrows and cosmetics being major milestones marked with a line on the display. Care Package rewards started at 500 Recovery Points, given at specific increments until the player hits 8,000, then given every 2,000 points.
