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 Medium Shuttle is a Vehicle in Astroneer, and is capable of escaping a planet's orbit and safely landing on it. It is used to travel rapidly across a world or to other Planets.

A Medium Shuttle has four Tier-2 Attachment Slots. One slot is needed for either a Solid-Fuel Thruster or a Hydrazine Thruster. One slot is intended for, but not restricted to, an Oxygenator. The other two slots are intended for Storage.

Other Uses[]

  • Similar to other vehicles, Shuttles provide unlimited Oxygen to players tethered to them. If an Oxygenator is onboard, it will provide oxygen to connected Tethers.
  • Shuttles in orbit that are trying to land at a base that has another shuttle on a Landing Pad will not be able to land without another, non-used Landing Pad present.
  • Players can take and bring back more items if a Medium Storage is placed on the side slot instead of an Oxygenator, with a packaged Oxygenator and a Medium Platform A or C to leave the Oxygenator on the planet the player goes to.
