Hydrazine Thrusters may be attached to any vehicle, though mainly used on Shuttles to fly to other planets. The thruster must be placed on the bottom of the shuttle to enable spaceflight. Around the base of the thruster are three Tier 1 slots meant for Hydrazine to fuel the thruster. A single Hydrazine allows for 8 take-offs and planet tranistions, which gives a maximum of 24 with all three slots filled.

The Hydrazine Thruster may also be used to propel a single Rover when it is attached to the front or back of the rover. When in the Rover Seat, the thruster may be toggled on and off with the Context Left Key if attached to the back, or the Context Right Key if on the front. Launching into the air allows the player to fly great distances, with the ability to fly into space at the risk of the rover and everything attached being lost. Rover trains cannot be propelled with Hydrazine Thrusters.
