What are salvaged thrusters for?

Recommended Posts

While exploring a huge cave, a friend and I found two paths that led to dead ends and a thruster at each. We were able to dock these on our truck and carry them back to base. 

 

However, the question is, what exactly are they used for? They can't be researched, and they're not needed for a spaceship/shuttle because that comes with thrusters when printed. 

 

Any ideas?

Thanks.

you can put em on the back of a truck and put some fuel on one of the slots on the thruster and you'll go a bit faster

Really? :S

you can't control the thrust though once you put the fuel in the slots it will just go

That seems nonsensical. If you're playing on your own and do this, surely the truck would take off before you can get in?

Awesome. Thanks for the screenshot. 

I noticed, though, that you're using Power there. Is this correct or does it use Hydrazine instead for the thruster?

without the hydrazine the thruster won't do anything.

Well, thanks for the knowledge. Can't wait to give this a try. I just hope it doesn't glitch and launch me into orbit lol

Man...this sounds like a terrible (awesome?) idea to try on Barren...

never even thought of that.
your vehicle would just go flying.

Looking at that I feel that Astroneer now needs a "hold my beer" emote.
