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.

  • When exploded by Dynamite, Hydrogen canisters will cause the resulting explosion to be slightly larger, and cause it to gain a bright blue hue.
  • When exploded by Dynamite in a Medium Gas Canister, the Hydrogen will also explode. However the explosion is smaller than placing the Hydrogen individually.
  • Hydrogen will explode and destroy a Smelting Furnace when placed in an available slot and the furnace is turned on.
