The storm is a very notable hazard in Astroneer, most player will engage this hazard as early as their third day, It can kill the player, knock away unsecured resource, and even flip over vehicles. Most storm has a different intensity depend on how close the players are to their center, the closer it is the more debris will be flung towards the player. It's behavior consist of roaming around the planet for a moment, before having a periodically scripted encounter and start seeking the player.
Surviving Storms[edit | edit source]
- To assure your hard won materials are not blown away, secure them using a storage or by affixing them to an empty slot in a platform (of any kind), a habitat, or onto vehicles.
- To prevent death players can enter a habitat, quickly dig a hole in the ground deep enough to avoid flying debris, or enter a cave to wait the storm out.
- The Large Rover only offers protection provided the wind does not flip the vehicle, so hiding in the vehicle seat, may also be a good strategy.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Patch 153 has a rather distinctive bug where almost all debris from the storm launch directly at a player like a heat seeking missile, this proves that the debris are programmed to randomly aim towards the player.
