Subnautica Wiki

The Snowfox is a land vehicle for Below Zero.


Unlike the three main vehicles in Subnautica, the Snowfox is strictly for zooming across the arctic terrain and cannot work over or under water.

By default, the snowfox has a light which can be toggled, and it has a speed boost. If the Snowfox Hop Module is installed, the Snowfox will have the ability to jump.

The player can pick up the Snowfox to redeploy it. This can be useful if the vehicle has fallen into water, rendering it inoperable.

Placing a Snowfox carried in the player's inventory into a quick slot, and then holding it, allows the battery to be changed by pressing R in the same way as many tools.

The player can use command "debughoverbike" to adjust parameters of their Snowfox.

Upgrades & Customization

The Snowfox is constructed on the Snowfox Hoverpad, as well as being customized on it. To equip an upgrade module, open the "Access Upgrades" panel on the left side of the Snowfox, then drag the upgrade into the slot.

The Snowfox currently has only one upgrade slot. Possible upgrades listed are boost intensity, silent running, power efficiency, acceleration, and max speed.[1]

The Snowfox is a one-person hoverbike designed for fast traversal over a wide variety of terrain.

While providing little protection for the pilot, the Snowfox can easily outmaneuver most threats, especially when upgraded with a jump module. Just don't try to take it over water.
