Crash Site locations as of Update 3.

Crash Sites are crashed FICSIT Freighters that can be found in the world, carrying  Hard Drives. There are 89 Crash Sites in total.[1]

Crash Sites consist of:

  • Freighter Drop-pod, containing the Hard Drive
  • Scattered components on the ground, which can be picked up (as listed below)
  • Other scattered wreckage which is purely visual

Locating[edit | edit source]

Retrieving the Hard Drive[edit | edit source]

Unlock requirements[edit | edit source]

A great majority of pods require at least one of two challenges to be completed, which a a certain amount of a part or power supplied. If those requirements are fullfiled, the handle in the UI becomes functional, allowing to open the hatch and retrieve the Hard Drive within.

  • For those requiring a certain part, the part will be automatically inserted into the slot in the pod. The part cannot be retrieved once the hatch is opened.
    • Ocassionally, the required part can be found scattered around the Crash Site
    • There are 4 pods that require unreleased components to be unlocked, rendering the drives within them unobtainable
  • For those requiring a certain amount of power to be supplied, Biomass Burners can be utilized to power the pod temporarily.
    • If connecting the pod to the main power grid, make sure do disconnect it once the drive is collected, as they appear to draw power constantly.

Some pods have no unlock requirement, the handle is always functional and the drive can be retrieved at no cost.

Environmental threats[edit | edit source]

Besides the requirements to retrieve the Hard Drive from the Crash Site, there can be other hazards, making it harder to retrieve the Hard Drive.

Scattered components[edit | edit source]

The following items can be found scattered around the Crash Sites:

All scattered items are fixed, including the amounts (e.g. two different games will have the same items in the same amounts, unless they are changed by a game patch). There is a large cave to the east of Islands containing lots of loot-able items, but no Crash Site can be found nearby.

Current issue[edit | edit source]

  • Loot around the Crash Site at (-26328, 129065, 7800) is invisible, but can still be picked up if being aimed at correctly.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It is advised to keep building materials for Biomass Burners for Hard Drive hunting. Using other types of generators will require fluid input which may be complicated to setup for such temporary works. If a large amount of power is required, consider hooking it into the main power grid.
  • The most common items needed to open the pods are Rotors and Circuit Boards, but in some cases they require Stators, Encased Industrial Beams, High-Speed Connectors, Modular Frames, or Black Powder.
  • It is advised to bring plenty of ammo for the Rifle, Fuel for the Jetpack, and a Gas Mask.
