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 Player can cycle between the two modes of the Medium Gas Canister by pressing F, Xbox One - Y Button, or PS4 - Triangle.

Input Mode

  • When in this mode, the Medium Gas Canister will collect one type of gas from any available storage or an active Atmospheric Condenser. It can only hold one type of gas at a time.
  • If it is empty, it will take the first atmospheric resource it finds from such storage and start holding it.

Output Mode

  • When in this mode, the Medium Gas Canister will deposit the gas it is holding to any available storage.
