Drop Pod

No Man's Sky Update - The Loop


The Drop Pod is a deployable vessel present in Subnautica: Below Zero. It is deployed by Robin Ayou's shuttle, and functions similarly to Lifepod 5 from the original Subnautica. The drop pod will land in a random location within a small area.


During the game's introduction, Robin pilots a passenger shuttle with the Drop Pod attached while heading to 4546B. A meteor collides with her shuttle, causing it to the eject the Drop Pod. The Drop Pod deploys shortly afterward, landing with the help of a parachute. The pod functions as a safe haven for the player until they are capable of constructing their own Seabase.


The Drop Pod is accessed using a door. A Fabricator is located to the left of the entrance, with a storage locker to the right. A single window is included on the side opposite the door.
