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 Extra Large Shredder is an extra large module in Astroneer. It is able to shred everything Tier-3 or below, as well as Debris, which produces Scrap. Tier-4 items cannot be shredded, but can be destroyed using Dynamite and then shredding the remains.

The shredder can be removed from the game either by blowing it up with Dynamite or by shredding Dynamite, which explodes the platform below and produces Debris.
