This article is about Compass in Subnautica. For the related article on the Below Zero Wiki, see Compass.

The Compass is a crafted piece of equipment made using the Fabricator. It is used as a basic navigational device with cardinal direction indicators.  

After the Player has crafted one Compass, it automatically falls in place in the paperdoll UI.  

The Compass will appear in the Fabricator after retrieving the chip from a Data Box.

Due to its ability to tell the player where they are looking, it can be used for:

  • Keeping track of salvaged areas. 
  • Navigation with the Seaglide.
