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 Solid-Fuel Jump Jet is a personal mobility device in Astroneer that allows for the player to fly in short bursts.

Solid-Fuel Jump Jet Aluminum Alloy Backpack


The Solid-Fuel Jump Jet is used to provide an extra boost to a players jump, and is only equipped in the backpack widget slots. Equipping two Solid-Fuel Jump Jets will increase the speed at which the boost provides. It can be activated individually with the context keys (for PC: C or V, Xbox: Xbox One - LB or Xbox One - RB, PS4: PS4 - L1 or PS4 - R1, Switch: Switch - L or Switch - R), or both by holding down )PC: Spacebar, Xbox: Xbox One - A, PS4: PS4 - Cross, Switch: Switch - A) while jumping or in the air.

The ring on the Solid-Fuel Jump Jet fills up when used, and resets when touching the ground. If the ring fills up completely, the Solid-Fuel Jump Jet will stop providing boost until reset.

The Solid-Fuel Jump Jet starts with 50 full boosts when crafted. It will destroy itself after it runs out of energy.

  • The top bar will turn off when there are 30 full boosts left.
  • The middle bar will turn off when there are 15 full boosts left.
  • The bottom bar will turn off and the light will start blinking when there are 3 full boosts left.


  • The max altitude the player can fly is the same height as the clouds.
  • A single Solid-Fuel Jump Jet has enough boost to get a player up to the top of a Tall Platform, and two Solid Fuel Jump Jets have enough boost to get a player up to the top of a Large Shuttle.
