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 XL Sensor Canopy is a goal net, meant to be used in combination with the Recreational Sphere to play any sort of sport in a multiplayer game. When anything passes through the blue sensor barrier, it will activate any item on the reaction slot on the back or connected to the target pins.
  • They have 6 Tier-2 slots, which are ideal for storing Fireworks that can be auto-pulled to the reaction slot.
  • They have 4 power cables that can be used to connect to power sources.


  • Before the Automation 002 Update, the canopy used to be named the Recreational Canopy, and was able to set off built-in fireworks.
