The poorly understood "Piezo Crystals" found in The Great Sea pose some extra challenges to crews travelling through the region: Navigating too close to one may cause disruptions in the submarine's electrical grid.
~ Loading Screen Tip

Piezo Crystals are environmental objects that drain power from nearby submarines. They periodically discharge, adding a heavy load on all Junction Boxes and draining charge from Batteries and Supercapacitors, rendering a submarine almost certainly momentarily unpowered and vulnerable.

Piezo Crystals show up on sonar as a bright ellipsoid, and spawn in clusters against the rock walls in The Great Void.

Exactly 23 Piezo Crystals will spawn in a level.


Piezo Crystals will zap a junction box up to 30 meters meters away, temporarily adding a 500Kw load on that junction box. This effect has a 1 second cooldown.


Piezo Crystals have 100 Health and can be damaged by conventional Weapons, Welding Tools, and Plasma Cutters.

Piezo Crystals explode violently upon destruction.
