Subnautica Wiki
This article is about the Compass in Subnautica. Click here for information on this subject in Below Zero.

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 paper doll 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 (or other vehicles).
