There is a ton of stuff that you can craft in Subnautica. It can be everything from Basic Materials to Food to Electronics to Vehicles. With such a large spectrum for crafting and making new stuff, it can be extremely difficult to remember the recipes or even find them in the first place.
This Subnautica Crafting Guide will ensure that you are aware of almost every single recipe in the game. This will be your go-to place to look up how you can craft the next thing that you need for survival. Everything from Bleach to a Battery will be covered by us, so just keep this guide open when you play the game and be assured that you will not run into any trouble on the crafting side of things.
You can also acquire these items from PC Console Commands. You can learn more about them by heading over to link.
As you will know by now, we will take a look at all of the recipes of items. The items themselves are divided into various different categories such as Basic Materials, Sustenance, Vehicles, and Scanner Room. We will take a look at all of these categories and acquaint you with how to build whatever it is you need from a select category.
Since you will be using the Fabricator to craft most of the stuff that you need, it is best if you tell you how to craft a Fabricator first. To craft a Fabricator, you need to combine Titanium, Gold, and Table Coral Sample to form a Builder which will then turn into a Fabricator. After this, you can focus on using it to craft Food, tools, equipment, and machines.
All of the following recipes that you see will require you to use the Fabricator. You already know how to craft a Fabricator so let’s go ahead and take a look at how to craft the items.
Remember that the Fabricator can also be used to cook Food. As long as you have a Raw Food sample with you, you can use the Fabricator to cook it. Alternatively, you can also cook the Food if you kill an animal using a Thermoblade. Using a Thermoblade will give you already cooked Food as long as you manage to harvest it off of the carcass. You will also be able to cure the Food if you have a salt deposit along with the Fabricator.
These are the standard Basic Items that you will require for your survival.
