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.
Fireworks are a nonessential gadget that can be used for cinematic effect or general entertainment. They can be crafted with one Explosive Powder, or found underground on dead astroneers. When interacted with, they will launch themselves into the air and explode, creating a large ball of particles of a random color. This does not affect the world or player in any way.
Fireworks can be placed on the ground and activated from there. It is also possible to launch fireworks from moving vehicles - this could be used for entertainment, races, celebrations, and even as a beacon to help players locate their friends (for actual beacons, see here). To launch a firework from a moving vehicle, place the firework in a vehicle storage slot and press Z (on keyboard) or X (on controller).
