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 Rover Seat is a Tier 2 attachment that can be put on Rovers and Shuttles. While in the seat, players are able to operate whatever the seat is attached to. They can be either crafted or found in various types of Wrecks across the planets.

Rover Seats can be placed on top of Rovers and in Shuttle attachment slots. When targeting the seat, the user can press the Use key (PC: F, Xbox: Xbox One - Y, PS4: PS4 - Triangle, Switch: Switch - X) to enter the seat and begin operating the vehicle. If two seats are placed on the same vehicle, whoever enters the vehicle first assumes control of the vehicle. When placing the seat, the direction it is facing is considered forward. Rotating the seat 180 degrees will flip the direction rovers will go when pressing forward or backward.

Entering a rover seat will save the game, even if the seat is not in a slot.
