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.

Icon Mission Log.png

Completing a mission makes the next missions available. This map shows all missions and their prerequisites, as of the Jet-Powered update.

Missions are goals for players to work towards, helping to guide players along the path of the game, while offering rewards along the way. The Missions Panel offers various missions to do, such as collect resources, craft certain items, or interact with the main goal of the game.

Completing missions give rewards to the player, that can assist with progression in the game. Rewards range from a number of Bytes, free Schematics, and various Items, such as the very rare QT-RTG or EXO Chip.

Mission Log[]

The Mission Log is attached to any Landing Pad and can be interacted with to bring up the Mission Log panel. The player can use this to keep track of missions and collect rewards.

It is also possible to check the Mission Log any time, using the key for the action wheel (R on PC, Xbox One - D-Pad Up on Xbox, and PS4 - D-Pad Up on PS4) and selecting the missions option. A second possibility to bring it up, is to click on the right side of the backpack. The Mission Log can be used to collect Byte rewards anywhere, but items can only be collected at the Landing Pads.

The log has four sections:

  • Rewards is for completed missions that have rewards waiting to be claimed.
  • Tracked is for missions that the player has decided to track. This allows for easier tracking when multiple missions are active. The player can untrack these missions, which moves them back to Active.
  • Active is for all missions that are currently active. These missions can be tracked and moved to Tracked.
  • Complete is for all missions that have been completed and rewards have already been claimed.

Things to Remember


  • The Missions and Mission Log was first shown off during the February 5, 2021 stream on Twitch.
  • The Mission Panel replaces the old startup panel on the starter Landing Pad
  • Prototype Recovery and Vertical Thinking may be started by finding the related Data Recorders or MATs on their respective planets.
  • Missions that require gathering resources must be completed by the player themselves using the terrain tool to mine the resource. Using a vehicle with a drill for example, will not count towards mission progress.
