Subnautica: Best Base Locations
Best locations to build a base in Subnautica.
With lots of loot for you to build with, and an amazing view, this is a great place. Add on a place for thermal power generators and you have a great base. watch out for crabsnakes!
THE FLOATING ISLAND
The floating island has no predators. It provides a nice place to build in, but has few materials so you have to bring your own. Close to Degasi bases and has lots of trees for food.
THE COVE TREE
One of the coolest places in the game! Lots of materials, and close to the lava zone. No predators and a great view of the cove tree. is very deep, so you need a cyclops or prawn to get there.
Great for loot and a cool view. Does have stalkers to bite you in the butt. Good place to charge up with solar power.
Building in the trees is very cool. It also allows you to get solar power easily! Is close to a warp gate as well to use. Great view!
This biome provides a great open area to build in and access to solar power. It is close to many wrecks, the starting area, and some thermal vents if one is determined enough to extend a wire up from the Jellyshroom Caves. There are plenty of Reefback friends there too!
