Grapple Hook Item + Other Tools

Recommended Posts

My idea for Astroneer is to add more traveling tools, such as grapple hooks, oxygen tanks, and possibly jetpacks. These items would work in many ways, and would make traversing through uneven terrain less tedious, as well as making the game easier and letting you accomplish more without wasting time using tethers or building.

Idea 1: Grapple Hook

  • Fires a limited distance
  • Two modes, Reel and Swing
  • Can be used to pick up dropped items
  • Reel and Swing are switched with a hotkey

Idea 2: Jetpacks

If spacewalking were ever implemented along with space stations, jetpacks would probably be a necessity when you are doing repairs.

  • Works in zero-G
  • Runs on Hydrazine
  • Also has two modes; Directional and Hover
  • Directional would allow you to fly in the direction you chose faster, and Hover would just let you fly vertically by holding down a hotkey.

Idea 3: Oxygen Tanks

  • Portable
  • Crafted quite expensively, but refillable by mining Oxygen or by using Tethers.
  • Carries quite more oxygen than the base player normally holds.
  • Reduces movement speed slightly

This could be an upgrade to the Winch, not a separate item.

This has already been suggested.

These already exist (even though they do not slow you down).
