Wrecks are sunken, deteriorated versions of Submarines or Shuttles. They contain a wealth of material loot, and often have Creatures lurking inside.

Wreck Salvage missions require you to explore a wreck and secure a special Logbook.


Wrecks can spawn randomly on the sea floor. They can appear in the Cold Caverns, but only in the "transition" level-type. Any further biome can generate them anywhere. They consist of parts of submarines or shuttles, including their crewmembers and loot.

Most doors and hatches on wrecks can be opened with the use of ID Cards found on the wreck. However, some are completely inoperable and require the use of a Plasma Cutter or Crowbar to open. Some secure cabinets may require ID cards to open as well.

Sometimes, a wreck can be infected by Thalami – A sentient colony of Ballast Flora, that has been left to sit on the sea floor for a long time. Thalami can take control of a ship's turrets to shoot submarines and approaching crewmembers, which makes them extremely dangerous to unsuspecting players. To eliminate the threat completely, the Thalamus brain on board the wreck must be destroyed, but beware the defensive measures it might unleash once you enter it.
