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.

  • In the real world, wolframite is the most commonly processed of the tungsten ores, followed by scheelite and ferberite.
  • Real wolframite looks nothing like the in-game version. A realistic depiction of a wolframite deposit would look like a black version of Quartz deposits.
