    Before Heading to Outpost Zero

    First things first, you can definitely head to Outpost Zero without prior extensive preparation. You can simply stick close to the surface or make use of Titan Holefishes to gather oxygen on your way there. The path forward is also not too difficult to navigate.

    However, having at least these two items will make the trip much easier. It will also make following this guide much simpler for you. That said, be sure to have the following items first:

    • Compass – You obtain the blueprint for the Compass after you craft the Pathfinder Tool. Both of these items can be crafted using the Fabricator.
    • Seaglide – This will make getting to Outpost Zero faster. You can craft it using the Fabricator after you obtain its blueprint. You get it by scanning its fragments, which are found in the Arctic Kelp Caves and Twisty Bridges.

    Once you have these two items, you can then begin making your way to Outpost Zero.
