Crash Sites can be found all across the World.[1] Scattered around the Crash Site are various components such as wires, reinforced iron plates, and computers. There will also be a Drop pod that (usually) needs to be repaired in order to access the Hard Drive inside it. Wreckages are generally either located in hard-to-access areas, or are guarded by large creatures. Some wreckages may be located inside poison gas.

Locating[edit | edit source]

Players could refer to fan-made maps for Crash Site locations.

Retrieving The Hard Drive[edit | edit source]

First the drop-pod needs to be repaired. Open the drop-pod's UI to find out what specific items need to be present in the Engineer's Inventory. Alternatively, the drop-pod may require Power to be repaired. If this is the case, build temporary Biomass Burners or Coal Generators to supply it with temporary power, or connect it to a power grid. The supplied power must not be less than the required power else there will be a power trip.

When the requirements are fulfilled, the handle on the drop-pod UI can be dragged down, opening a hatch and allowing the Engineer to retrieve the Hard Drive.

Tips[edit | edit source]

As mentioned above, it is advised to keep building materials for Biomass Burners and Coal Generators. Using biomass burners is advised as they are cheaper and you likely already have some Biofuel for your Chainsaw. The most common items needed to open the pods are Rotors and Circuit Boards, but in some cases they require High-Speed Connectors, Modular Frames, or Black Powder. It is advised to bring plenty of ammo for the Rifle , a Jetpack and a Gas Mask.

Possible challenges when searching for crash sites:

Challenges Solution
Cliffs Jetpack, ladders, foundation
Poison Gas/Spore Flower Gas Mask/Nobelisks
Fauna/Alpha Fauna Xeno Basher/Rifle

It is possible to have a combination of challenges at a single crash site. Thus it is advised to save the game before attempting to approach it.
