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 Tractor is a type of Rover in Astroneer. With its cheap research and crafting costs and early utility, it is mostly used as the player's first vehicle. It has a T2 Attachment Slot on the front of the vehicle and a power port on back. The Tractor can pull up to three other Rovers by attaching them to the rear power port.

Like other Rovers, the Tractor has no Power when created. The internal battery can be charged by connecting it to a base or by attaching a power source to one of its Attachment Slots.
