An in-depth guide to 100% completing Astroneer. This game is still in development and new achievements come out ever here and there.
Dedicated Achievement List
EXO Dynamics Training Seal of Approval
- Complete the Tutorial.
The tutorial will equip you with most of the knowledge you’ll need to understand this guide. It takes about ten minutes at most, so even if you’ve gotten the achievement already, it may be a good idea to refresh your memory!

EXO Dynamics Outreach Participant
- Join or host a multiplayer game session.
Let Me Borrow This Just A Second

Interplanetary Road Trip
- Travel to another planet with another player in the same shuttle.
- “In order to fit more than one person in a shuttle, you need to mount a rover seat to the shuttle, as only one person will fit in the cockpit. You can mount one in the small shuttle in the small bay meant for an oxygenator, or you can wait until you have the medium or large shuttle and mount a rover seat in its cargo bay”.
Gateway Achievements (Spoilers)
Shapes and Other Shapes
- Find a Gateway Chamber.
- Gateway Chambers are structures that can be found on the surface of every planet. They appear as large, scaffold-like structures with smooth, glassy surfaces through which can be seen a starry background which appears to be deeper than the inside of the structure would suggest. From a distance you can see a swirling beam going into the sky. On the top of the bottom platform are three raised inverted pyramids, each of which has a single cable port.
First Step Into a Larger World
- Solve a Gateway Chamber.
- On the top of the bottom platform are three raised inverted pyramids, each of which has a single cable port. Power can be supplied to any of these, with more power needed for higher difficulty planets, to reveal an Odd Stone which, when interacted with, allows the player to teleport between activated Gateways on the planet.
- Each planet’s Gateway Chambers require a different amount of power to be activated. For example, Sylva’s chambers can be powered by 5 Small Generators, connected to any of the three power connection points.
Secrets of the Universe
- Solve all of the Gateway Chambers.
Encounter With the Infinite
- Find a Gateway Engine.
- Gateway Engines are structures that make up the cores of each planet. They are spherical structures, with many pillars extending outward and up through the outer core layer of the planets. The pillars and sphere in the center use a different gravity than the planet does. When approaching any part of the engine, the player will be pulled and orientated to the surface of the structure and will be able to move normally along the surface.
- Solve the Gateway Engine on Sylva.
- Each Gateway Engine requires a specific resource to create a Geometric Triptych, which is required to activate the Engine. The Geometric Triptych is unique to each planet and can be created repeatedly.
- Sylva’s designated resource is Quartz.
- Solve the Gateway Engine on Desolo.
- Desolo’s designated resource is Zinc.
- Solve the Gateway Engine on Calidor.
- Calidor’s designated resource is Explosive Powder (made in the Chemistry Lab).
- Solve the Gateway Engine on Vesania.
- Vesania’s designated resource is Graphene (made in the Chemistry Lab).
- Solve the Gateway Engine on Novus.
- Novus’s designated resource is Silicone (made in the Chemistry Lab).
- Solve the Gateway Engine on Glacio.
- Glacio’s designated resource is Diamond (made in the Chemistry Lab).
- Solve the Gateway Engine on Atrox.
- Atrox’s designated resource is Hydrogen.
Now You See Me…
- Utilize the Gateway Fast Travel Network.
- The Gateway Fast Travel Network spans across all seven planets. When a Gateway Chamber or Gateway Engine is activated the player may interact with the Odd Stone in the center. Clicking on any active node will teleport the player to that location.
- Solve all of the Gateway Engines.
- Pass through the Gateway Portal into the unknown.
- Experience the game’s official ending.
