Uses[edit | edit source]

  • When connected via a Tether to a base module or vehicle, the Small Oxygen Tank will fill with Oxygen.
  • The Small Oxygen Tank attaches to any Tier-1 slot and stores exactly as much Oxygen as the backpack's main tank (72 seconds when idling, 50 seconds when running.)
  • Having one Small Oxygen Tank in the backpack doubles the player's Oxygen storage.
  • When untethered, the Small Oxygen Tank's Oxygen is consumed prior to the backpack's. The oxygen gauge on the tank visibly empties as it is used.
  • If the player attaches a full oxygen tank to every auxiliary and widget slot on their backpack and Terrain Tool and idles, they will be able to breathe untethered for about 16 minutes.
  • If running while carrying the same load of Small Oxygen Tanks, they will be able to breathe untethered for about 12 minutes.
