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 Hydrazine Thruster is a reusable item in Astroneer. Hydrazine Thrusters are powered by Hydrazine and are used to propel vehicles, mainly the Shuttles to travel to other planets.

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 menat for Hydrazine to fuel the thruster. Up to three Hydrazine canisters can be attached, which allows for 24 take-offs and planet transitions.

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.
