Uses[edit | edit source]

The Winch may be placed on any Rover, except for the Icon Rover.png Buggy, due to the fact it only has one Medium Slot meant for the player to sit.

Click on the hook on the Winch, then attach it to something to tow it.

To release, click on the base of the cable where it comes out of the body of the Winch.

The Winch can be attached to Shuttles, however, caution is advised since the attached items will fall off when you go into space.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The winch had a considerably less updated design than most other objects in the game, until updated in the Exploration Update.
