Subnautica Crafting

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.

Fabricator Recipes

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.
