Objective-based introduction initialized. Welcome to: Onboarding.

The Onboarding tutorial teaches basic game mechanics at the start of the game. After the pioneer exits the drop-pod, they are asked by ADA to complete a series of objectives. In a multiplayer game, tutorial messages are shared. Only the host is required to complete the tutorial.

If Onboarding is skipped during the creation of a new game, the pioneer starts with these items in the inventory: 1x  Xeno-Zapper, 1x  HUB Parts, 4x  Portable Miner, 129x  Iron Plate, 58x  Concrete, 60x  Iron Rod, 48x  Wire, 8x  Reinforced Iron Plate, 52x  Cable.


All the objectives are listed below in order.

  1. Dismantle F the Drop-pod with the Build Gun.
  2. Open the Codex O then close it Esc.
  3. Equip Tab ↹ the Xeno-Zapper.
  4. Use the Resource Scanner V to search and mine  Iron Ore.
