Alien Warp Gates are pieces of Precursor technology. They resemble large gateways and have a green, semi-transparent portal within. The Prawn Suit and the Seamoth have the ability to enter Alien Warp Gates.

Warp Gate Types


The Master Warp Gates have pedestals and must be powered using an Ion Crystal. They are connected to a slave Warp Gate.


The Slave Warp Gates do not have pedestals, and their corresponding master Warp Gates must be activated before these gates can be used.
