Multipurpose rooms are quite important in building your bases. The ambiance isn’t a concern when you are building your first base. But it can help you a lot for your future bases. This room can serve as a hub for all of your base’s activities, including storage, crafting, and even sleeping.

All of the items that you collect around the ocean will be displayed using the multipurpose room.

It can also be used for other things such as:

  • Indoor Plantations
  • Engine Battery Chargers
  • Showcasing Posters
  • Place your storage chests or miscellaneous items that cannot fit into other rooms.

Additionally, the Multipurpose Room makes your base sturdy and provides the player with ample space for movement or storing their items. Once built, it has eight corners and is a little larger than a normal room. On top of that, it is completely empty which allows you to decorate it as you wish! 

This is why today’s guide will focus on finding and building a Multipurpose Room as fast as possible and where you can find its fragments! 

Key Takeaways

To obtain and build the Multipurpose Room in the game:

  1. Scan Fragments: You need to scan three Multipurpose Room fragments to obtain the blueprint.

  2. Required Tools: To find the Multipurpose Room, you’ll need a knife, scanner, and fast transport.

  3. Go to Floating Island: The fastest way to find the Multipurpose Room is by going to the “Floating Island,” which is closest to the spawn point in a new game.

  4. Island Exploration: Travel about 1200-1300 meters to reach the island. Make your way to the highest peak.

  5. Locate Half-Buried Room: On the island’s highest peak, you’ll find the Multipurpose Room half-buried underground. Scan it to acquire the blueprint without scanning individual fragments.

  6. Build Requirements: To build the Multipurpose Room, you’ll need 6 titanium.

Finding A Multipurpose Room 

In Subnautica, scanning the Multipurpose Room for building requires a few essential tools and can be done in specific locations.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Scanner
  2. Knife
  3. A fast travel vehicle (like a life pod) for convenience.

You’ll need to scan a total of three fragments to obtain the Multipurpose Room blueprint. These fragments can be found in various locations across the map:

  1. Deep Grand Reef
  2. Jellyshroom Cave
  3. Floating Island (also known as the Degasi Seabases) – This is the best location to find the fragments.

While technically, you only need the scanner, having the knife and fast transport will make the process quicker and more convenient. The fragments may be randomly distributed in these three locations, so you may need to explore multiple areas to find them. Some players may discover all three fragments in one location, while others might need to visit different areas to scan them all.

By using these pointers, you can create a multipurpose room that is both practical and cozy and will operate as the center of your base’s activities in Subnautica.

Perks Of A Multipurpose Room For Base Building

A multipurpose room can add a lot to your base. Check out some more information on what you can do with a multipurpose room:

  • Ladders can be placed in five specific locations, including the center and four around the perimeter.

  • You can stack multiple Multipurpose Rooms to increase vertical space.

  • Water Filtration Machines can be placed on all eight side panels.

  • You can place various facilities like Alien Containment, Bioreactor, or Nuclear Reactor in the middle.

  • Multiple vertical Multipurpose Rooms can combine to create a large floor-spanning unit.

Ending Remarks

You can potentially get the Multipurpose Room at the start of the game but you’ll have to travel a long distance and know where to look. The Floating Island is your best bet but most players face a Leviathan in that location or go too far and enter the dead zone by accident. Make sure that you follow the directions exactly and look out for a large island. You can also find one in Jellyshroom Cave and the Deep Grand Reef.

That about does for the Multipurpose Room guide. I hope this assisted you in finding the room easily because it is an important part of your base.

Will I encounter Leviathans near the Floating Island?

No, it would be best if you didn’t face any Leviathans. However, most players overshoot and accidentally enter the dead zone where there are tons of Leviathans. As long as you follow the directions and stay near the island, you should be absolutely safe.

How far is the Floating Island from the crash point?

The Floating Island is about 1200-1300 meters away from your spawn point when you begin the game. If you turn about 90 degrees to your right and look closely, you’ll notice ominous-looking clouds covering something. Go straight in that direction and you’ll reach the island in no time.

Can you make a Ghost Leviathan follow you?

Yes, you can technically “tame” a Ghost Leviathan but it is a dangerous task and new players shouldn’t do this. Once a Leviathan is following you, swim to the surface and let it feast on the sea moth (or any other submarine). Afterward, it will follow you around without attacking you.
