Blade Runners are a piece of equipment that increases the pioneer's running speed by 50% and jump height by 100%, while also dampening fall damage.



 Blade Runners are unlocked via the Caterium Research chain in the MAM.png MAM using:

Movement Regular Blade Runners
Running speed 9 m/s
32.4 km/h
13.5 m/s
48.6 km/h
Jump height 2 m 4 m
Maximum fall without taking damage 16 m* 20.5 m*

*Note: Fall damage test has to be redone, as in Patch fall damage was made "more linear", which may affect breaking points stated above.

Walking speed is unaffected. To achieve a higher jump, slide before jumping.

Slide jumping[]

You can chain slide jumps together (which only works on flat surfaces up to very slight slopes) to achieve significant on-foot speed:

Run straight ahead → perform a crouch-jump → at the last moment before hitting the ground while still in the air crouch again to activate sliding on landing and immediately jump again.

This seems to bring up "walking" speed to almost 25m/s (further verification required), but as mentioned, only works up to a small incline (comparable to an 8x1 ramp). You can use it to cut corners or even go reverse if performed correctly.

It also increases jump height to 6m and jump length to 40m (on the first slide jump) respectively 48m (on each consecutive slide jump).

Fall damage reduction[]

Blade Runners cap the maximum fall damage at 96 health points or 9.6 health segments. Without the Blade Runners, the fall damage is capped at 97 instead.

It is advised to obtain this equipment as soon as possible. The pioneer will then be able to jump onto a Storage Container.png Storage Container or Conveyor Splitter.png Conveyor Splitter/Merger, which makes factory building much easier.


 Blade Runners can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 4 988 points.

Current issues[]

  • If the FOV (Field of View) is changed from 90, the pioneer's legs will appear out of the Blade Runners. The bigger the difference of FOV, the more visible it is.
  • Blade Runners don't align with the pioneer when traveling in a Hyper Tube.



  • Patch Closed Alpha 5.1: Tweaked Blade Runners: Sprint speed boost down to 50% from 75% and reduced the fall damage curve slightly
