Outpost Zero's Location in Subnautica Below Zero

Players can potentially get to Outpost Zero within the first hour, and we recommend that you do so, as you can get a lot of good data from it early on. If you want to, follow our advice below on how to get there. For frame of reference, Outpost Zero is at the far-North side of the map.

  • From the starting escape pod, head directly North until you hit the sheer wall of Ice.
  • From the wall, head East, so that it’s on your right side.
  • Keep checking underwater if you’re just swimming. Eventually you’ll see a wide gap going under the wall with numerous huge, crooked icicles hanging down from it.
  • Dive down through this new underwater tunnel past the icicles, hugging the left wall tightly, and come up straight away into a steamy cave full for Thermal Lilies.
  • There’s a path here marked by lights stuck into the ground. Follow it to the frozen river, then follow the river itself.
  • This’ll lead you to snow with more lights stuck in the ground. Follow those over the snowbanks to Outpost Zero!
