Exploring the vast underwater world of Subnautica requires a reliable underwater vehicle. The Seamoth is the easiest and most basic one to obtain. Plus, the ability to add upgrades makes it a versatile vehicle that allows you to navigate through a wide variety of biomes. Together with the Cyclops, they form a combination that enables you to venture into the depths of the sea.
The following guide will explain how to unlock this submarine, how to build it, what upgrades can be applied to it, how to store it in your underwater base, but also how to maintain it, recharge its batteries, and repair it in case it's damaged.
Exploring the vast depths of Subnautica's underwater world requires a reliable submersible vehicle, and the Seamoth fits the bill perfectly. As the most basic and easily obtainable underwater vehicle, the Seamoth is essential for navigating the map. By collecting scattered fragments, you can unlock and construct your very own Seamoth, granting you access to uncharted territories.
To find these fragments, you must search the underwater wrecks of the Aurora., which are scattered throughout the map. You need a total of 3 fragments to unlock it. Keep in mind that if you are able to swim to the Aurora, there is a room called the Seamoth Bay, where you can directly find the three pieces without the need for further exploration.
Next, in order to build the Seamoth, you must first unlock the Mobile Vehicle Bay. To do this, you also need to find three fragments of this item in wrecks that will allow you to construct it. Once you have it, hold it in your hand and release it on the water's surface. A menu will appear, allowing you to build various vehicles, including the Seamoth.
What makes the Seamoth truly exceptional is its versatility and upgradability. Once you have your Seamoth, you can enhance its capabilities through various upgrades. From the Hull Upgrade Module, which provides added protection against collisions and damage, to the Depth Module that enables you to explore greater depths.
But the Seamoth's perks don't stop there. With the moonpool, a dedicated module in your underwater base, you can conveniently store and recharge your Seamoth. Acting as a docking station, the Moonpool ensures your submersible is always accessible and ready for your next adventure.
To customize your Seamoth and add upgrades, you need to create the Vehicle Upgrade Console, which can be placed inside the Moonpool. Additionally, using the fabricator integrated into this console, you can construct upgrades that will enhance the Seamoth's capabilities.
What should you do if the Seamoth runs out of power? To recharge the Seamoth, simply go to the bottom of the vehicle from the exterior and replace the power cell located there. However, be cautious, as if your vehicle runs out of power at a great depth, you may become stranded.
On the other hand, colliding with the seafloor or large aquatic creatures can significantly reduce the Seamoth's health points. If it becomes severely damaged, it will eventually sink and be lost completely. To repair it, you need to use the repair tool.
There are situations where the Seamoth can get stuck, whether it's inside the Aurora or on the beach of one of the islands. If you have a Prawn Suit, you can gently collide with the Seamoth to gradually move it. However, keep in mind that this may reduce the Seamoth's health. Another way to dislodge it is by using the propulsion cannon to launch objects at it. Again, be aware that this may damage the Seamoth. In many cases, it may be easier to construct a new Seamoth instead.
