Modes[edit | edit source]

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

Holding Mode[edit | edit source]

When in this mode, the Medium Resource Canister will take from any available storage the resource it is holding. If it is empty, it will take the first resource it finds from such storage and start holding it.

Dispensing Mode[edit | edit source]

When in this mode, the Medium Resource Canister will deposit to any available storage the resource it holding.


Note that the Medium Resource Canister will not grab or deposit from Printers.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Medium Resource Canister was first shown off on the SES Dev Twitch stream on May 29, 2020.
  • Scrap counts as a Resource and can therefore be stored in a Medium Resource Canister.
  • It is possible for 34 nuggets to be stored in the Medium Resource Canister. One nugget will be placed in the input slot on top of the canister when it is full, and a second nugget may be manually placed on the output slot.
