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 the Icon Shuttle.png Shuttle and Icon Large Shuttle.png Large Shuttle. However, caution is advised since attached items will fall off when you go into space.

The Winch cannot be used on a Icon Rover.png Buggy.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Just like the Icon Solid-Fuel Thruster.png Solid-Fuel Thruster, the winch may also be found randomly while exploring underground.
  • The winch seems to have a considerably less updated design than most other objects in the game.
