Alien Arches 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 Arches.

When the player enters an Alien Arch, it plays an SFX similar to when a Warper warps the player.

Arch Types

Master

The Master Arches have pedestals and must be powered using an Ion Cube. They are connected to a slave Arch.

Slave

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

This structure's intended purpose is unclear. Power lines running from the nearby terminal suggest it can be switched on and off, if connected to the right kind of energy source.

Theories on Function:

  • Ceremonial or religious role
  • Industrial applications
  • Advanced transportation network

Assessment: Further research required.

Scans indicate this warp gate has not been active since the facility was abandoned. It likely served as an access point to the surface of the planet. It is much too small for the emperor specimen to pass through, but may accommodate a juvenile specimen.
