Fabricator Menu Tools

Tools are devices that are either crafted from Basic Materials or Advanced Materials by using the Fabricator or upgraded from other Tools using the Modification Station.

They are carried in the Inventory and can be equipped in the Toolbar.

Most of them consume Energy through batteries. These tools are the FlashlightHabitat BuilderLaser CutterPathfinder ToolPropulsion CannonRepair ToolRepulsion CannonScanner, and Stasis Rifle.

Some Tools can currently only be spawned using Console Commands.

Nearly all Tools have first-use animations which show the player inspecting or playing with the tools, before equipping it. These do not play again even with newly crafted copies.

Note that the Thermoblade does use a battery in crafting but doesn't require it for Energy.
