The Underwater Scooter is a battery-powered underwater propulsion device and a container.


The Cargo Scooter can be used to travel faster while in water while also providing light while doing so, and additionaly has almost the same item capacity as a Storage Container, making it very useful when exploring Caves or Alien Ruins. It is generally recommended to always bring a scooter when exiting the Submarine if available.

It can be crafted by an Engineer with the Sample Collection unlocked; It cannot be bought at any Outpost.


The Cargo Scooter is held with both hands. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right Mouse Right-click to take aim, then by Left Mouse Left-clicking to shoot/use.

  • It can be held with both hands or stored in Cabinets or Crates. It cannot be stored in the inventory.
    • When dropped in water it will sink very slowly in comparison to other items, making it safe to leave it for a while and free up the user's hands to do something else.
  • The spotlight effect works everywhere, however propulsion can only work when underwater.
  • It can contain up to 11 item stacks.
  • Requires a Battery Cell or a Fulgurium Battery Cell inserted in the battery slot in order to work.


The Cargo Scooter can store all medium items except:

Medium items can be stored inside the scooter, even if they require two hands and cannot be held in the toolbar (like the Autoshotgun).
To store these items, place the scooter inside a Submarine Container, equip the bulky item, reopen the storage container, and then drag it onto the scooter.
