Destroyed Lifepods are small survival vessels that were launched from the Aurora during its descent. While several lifepods survived initially, by the time the player wakes after being unconscious for three hours in Lifepod 5, it is the only one still intact, the others having sunk or been attacked.
As of now, nine Destroyed Lifepods are present in-game.

- In previous versions, Destroyed Lifepods all featured the same damage; it was due to a lack of art time, contrary to the theory that they were all attacked by Warpers.
- A second Lifepod 3 had spawned in the Safe Shallows. This was removed in later versions of the game, however.
- The only other floating lifepod is Lifepod 4 found near the Aurora in an overturned position. It is unknown what caused it to overturn. However, it was likely caused by a Reaper Leviathan as hinted by the distress signal and overall proximity to Reaper Leviathans.
- Lifepod 7 has a doll of Youtuber, Markiplier, inside of it.
- Lifepod 4´s secondary systems panel is defying gravity, as the pod is upside down, but the panel stays stuck to the floor, instead of floating around the pod.
- Lifepod 17 has a Seamoth fragment next to it. This is most likely here because Ozzy said the Seamoth Bay of the Aurora almost landed on the Lifepod during it's descent in the radio message.
