How do you survive in Subnautica? There is no easy answer to that given that we are talking about an underwater survival game that refuses to hold your hand. Once you climb out of the Lifepod 5 and take in the wreckage of your mother ship - now a blazing wreck in a vast alien ocean - a few hints will introduce you to your tools, but that is the only help Subnautica will offer you.
With food, drink, and oxygen levels that need managing, as well as an ocean full of marine beasties ready to rip you to shreds, it is easy to feel out of your depth in Subnautica. There are no missions or objectives to hold your hand, either - it is just you and you alone against this watery world.
However, do not fear (unless you have aquaphobia, in which case Subnautica might not be the game for you), we have some tips to help you on your way. After hours of scavenging resources and doggy paddling as fast we can from scary predators, we have created an introductory Subnautica Guide that will be sure to turn you from shallow swimmer to a veritable Poseidon in a jiffy. Welcome to our Subnautica guide.
