Some of the cheat codes used in the PC version also work in the console versions of Subnautica. To access them, press LB, RB, A, and X at the same time on Xbox or L1, R1, X, and Square on PS4. This will bring up a screen from which you can enter the cheat codes. Enter the codes below to achieve the desired effect.

The  “allblueprints”  cheat  isn’t  working,
I’m  typing  it  in  exactly  how  it  says  on  the  page,  it  just  doesn’t  activate.

That  is  because  that  cheat  is  incorrect.  It  should  be  unlockall

Easter Eggs

The person who worked on the audio and music for Subnautica once claimed to have hidden an audio clip of Donald Trump saying “China” within the game’s audio. Fans believe it occurs around the 1:18 mark in the Sparse Reef music. Take a listen and see what you think.

Unknown Worlds Entertainment references

Easter Eggs

The Alien Rifle and the Doomsday Device are assets used for Future Perfect, by the same developers as Subnautica.

You can find posters for and items from the upcoming game Natural Selection 2 also by the same developers.

Developer references

Easter Eggs

When you make the Survival Knife, you get the following message: “Weapons were removed from standard survival blueprints following the massacre on Obraxis Prime.  The knife remains the only exception.” The name mentioned, Obraxis Prime, is a reference to one of the game’s developers, who uses the name Obraxis. (Of course, it is also an in-game explanation for why there are no guns.)

One Data Download mentions the hive mind of Strader VI. This is a reference to another developer for the game, Cory Strader.

Holy Diver

Easter Eggs

You will eventually receive a radio message that says “You’ve been down too long in the midnight sea. Oh don’t you see what I mean?” This is a reference to the song “Holy Diver” by the heavy metal band Dio, in which those lines appear in the lyrics.

Star Trek reference

Easter Eggs

When you activate the Data Terminal in the Quarantine Enforcement Platform, the PDA will sometimes say “Resistance in fertile,” a reference to the Borg in Star Trek, who deliver the standard message of “Resistance is futile.”

Beginning Tips


You will need to use the Fabricator often. Check out the starting recipes so you know what you’ll need.

Fins are a good item to craft early. They will boost your swimming speed. You’ll also want to craft oxygen tanks so you can breathe underwater longer.

Other important items to craft early on are the Survival Knife, scanner, first aid kit, and air bladder. You might also want to craft the Seaglide to help you travel further.

Once you’re ready to travel further, you should build the Seamoth submarine.

Building a base will let you expand the area you can explore, since you’ll be able to use your new base instead of returning to your pod every time.

You can use Airsack fish to filter your water. Later on, you’ll be able to create disinfected water instead.

Don’t cook your fish until you’re ready to eat, or they might go bad before you get to them. Once you’re ready to eat them, cook them. Later in the game, you’ll be able to cure them, as well.

How to quickly find a island


So you need to go on top on you're lifepod and try to create a base don't create it just look around and the fog hiding the island should show up.

Many  people  explain  what  to  do  in  order  to  get  the  menu  to  pop  up,  but  it  isn’t  a  box  that’ll  pop  up.  Press  the  buttons  L1,  R1,  and  X.  Then  go  into  your  menu.  You’ll  have  a  new  option  to  choose  from  called  “Developer”.  That  is  where  you’ll  find  the  commands.
