Subnautica Below Zero fiber mesh is a key crafting component for several important items in the game. While you can craft it very early on, you likely won't need to for some time — it all depends on how quickly you are able to find item and vehicle fragments in biomes close to your lifepod. 

Regardless, you'll want to know the ingredients for Below Zero fiber mesh so you can quickly create the material when you need it.

How to Craft Fiber Mesh in Subnautica Below Zero

You'll need 2x creepvine to craft fiber mesh. Take it to the fabricator in your lifepod or base, click the Resources circle (very top of the list), then click Basic Materials circle (very top of the list). Then choose fiber mesh, which is the far-right circle on the top row.

It's worth noting that creepvine isn't to be confused with creepvine clusters, the pink bulbs attached to creepvine, which are used to craft silicone rubber and lubricant, for example. 

You can find creepvine in any kelp forest in the game. The closest kelp forest in the early game can be found 80 meters southwest of the lifepod, just at the edge of the Twisty Bridges biome. Other kelp forests can be found 160 meters southeast of the lifepod, as well as 310 meters west of the lifepod. 

You'll need the survival knife to harvest creepvine. Approach the creepvine and slash it with your knife. You'll get 1x creepvine for each slash, and you can harvest 4x creepvine from each harvesting node. Creepvine takes up four slots in your inventory. 

It has been reported that Sea Monkeys will sometimes carry creepvine around with them, just as they do table coral, though, in roughly 14 hours of play, I've yet to see them carrying any. It's most efficient to simply cut the creepvine yourself. 

What is Fiber Mesh Used to Craft? 

Fiber mesh is a key component in the (very important) Rebreather, as well as the composite parts of the Cold Suite and O2 Tank. You'll also need it for various other craftables such as beds and parts of the Sea Truck.

How to Get Subnautica Below Zero Table Coral Sat, 22 May 2021 11:04:00 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Like any other survival game, Subnautica Below Zero is full of crafting supplies and items that you'll need to hunt down and scavenge to progress in the game. Some are used more often than others, but most are important in some way. One of those crafting items is Below Zero table coral, which you harvest to get a table coral sample. 

But where is Subnautica Below Zero table coral, and how do you find it? This guide will tell you exactly where table coral is found, how to harvest it, and which crafting recipes it's used in. 

How to Find Table Coral in Subnautica Below Zero

Unlike table coral in Subnautica, which can be found in eight different biomes across the map, Subnautica Below Zero table coral is found in only two biomes: Twisty Bridges and Lilypad Islands

The first place you'll find table coral is in Twisty Bridges. This biome is 200 meters south of your lifepod. If you don't yet have a compass, which requires copper wire and a wiring kit to craft, you can exit your lifepod, turn right, and go straight for 200 meters. 

Twisty Bridges is denoted by long, thin rock formations that form bridges between larger outcroppings. They look almost like tentacles. You'll see some of these in the Sparse Arctic biome, your starting zone, but you won't officially be in Twisty Bridges until the depth starts to drop off and you see many of these structures crisscrossing the area. 

Table coral is hard to come by in this area, but look along cliff walls and inside caves. Table coral is red or yellow and juts out in a half-moon shape.

You can also find table coral in Lilypad Islands, which is almost directly southeast of the lifepod, through the Purple Vents and Tree Spires biomes. While you can get to this area early in the game if you wish by following a certain signal, it's not advisable. There are plenty of aggressive Cryptosuchus along the way, as well as a few Leviathans you may have to deal with. 

However, the primary reason is that there just isn't that much table coral to be found in the Lilypad Islands. Farming table coral from Twisty Bridges is far more efficient. 

It's also possible that Sea Monkeys will be carrying around pieces of table coral from time to time, so keep an eye out. However, it's incredibly rare that they do so, and after more than 13 hours of play, I've only seen it happen twice. 

How to Harvest Table Coral

Mineral Detector recipe and fabricator in Lifepod.

Harvesting table coral is very easy. All you need to do is approach it and hit it with your Survival Knife. You can craft a Survival Knife with 1x silicone rubber and 1x titanium. One creepvine cluster crafts two silicone rubber. Titanium is found by breaking limestone outcrops or scanning vehicle and item fragments you already have the full crafting recipes for. 

Though not completely necessary, it can be helpful to bring along a Mineral Detector to help you find the coral samples. The Mineral Detector is great for locating a number of different Subnautica Below Zero crafting supplies; you can cycle through 10 options after building it, and it pinpoints locations with a green dot on the detector's screen. 

You can build a Mineral Detector with 1x battery; 1x titanium, 1x copper wire; 1x silicone rubber. The only downside to the scanner is that you have to be within about 10 meters of the object before it's able to be detected. 

What is Table Coral Used to Craft?

You'll need table coral to craft a singule item: the computer chip. However, the computer chip is used in a wide variety of items, including the Mobile Vehicle Bay and Habitat Builder to the Modification Station and Vehicle Upgrade Console. It's also a primary component for some vehicles, such as the Sea Truck and Prawn Suit. 

That means you'll want to seek table coral out relatively early in Subnautica Below Zero. You can typically grab a few table coral samples without a vehicle; use the seaglide to get back to the surface quickly. But once you get enough vehicle fragments to build the Sea Truck, you'll be able to farm table coral to your heart's content. 


That's all you need to know about Subnautica Below Zero table coral. Now that you can craft the computer chip, you'll have access to some of the game's better crafting recipes and blueprints. For more on Below Zero, consider diving into our other guides

How to Get Snow Stalker Fur in Subnautica: Below Zero Thu, 20 May 2021 11:47:20 -0400 Sergey_3847

In order to survive in sub zero temperatures of Subnautica: Below Zero players must acquire the Cold Suit, a special thermal-regulated body suit that consists of three pieces: suit, gloves, and helmet. Each component of the Cold Suit can be crafted using Snow Stalker Fur and Fiber Mesh.

This guide will provide you with tips on how to get Snow Stalker Fur in Subnautica: Below Zero. After that you can use Fabricator to craft the Cold Suit and be able to survive in the freezing environments of Planet 4546B.

How to Get Snow Stalker Fur in Subnautica: Below Zero

If you're lucky, you can find Snow Stalker Fur inside caves of the Glacial Basin, but most of the time you will have to take it by force from Snow Stalkers. Snow Stalkers are carnivores that can be found on one of the following biomes:

  • Arctic Spires
  • Glacial Basin

Before venturing into one of these territories you need to craft a Spy Pengling using the following recipe:

  • 2x Titanium
  • 1x Wiring Kit
  • 1x Silicone Rubber
  • 1x Battery

The blueprint for the Spy Pengling can be acquired by scanning fragments at  Marguerit Maida's Base, which can be found inside a cave below the Purple Vents biome. It can also be found at Phi Robotics Center, located in the largest cave of the Glacial Basin.

Once you have your Spy Pengling ready, you need to deploy it somewhere near the roaming Snow Stalker. Use controls to get to it as close as possible and press left mouse button to collect the fur. You can repeat this process many times.

All-in-all, you will need four pieces of Snow Stalker Fur to craft the Cold Suit:

Cold Suit
2x Fiber Mesh
2x Snow Stalker Fur
Cold Suit Gloves
1x Fiber Mesh
1x Snow Stalker Fur
Cold Suit Helmet 1x Fiber Mesh
1x Snow Stalker Fur


That's all you need to know on how to get Get Snow Stalker Fur in Subnautica: Below Zero. Check out more Subnautica: Below Zero tips and tricks articles on our dedicated hub page.

Where to Find Silver and Gold in Subnautica Below Zero Mon, 04 Feb 2019 17:41:52 -0500 Jonathan Moore

To build certain tools and items in Subnautica Below Zero, you're going to need silver and gold. However, neither is readily lying about; as you would expect, you'll come across more copper and titanium than silver and gold. 

Luckily, there are a few spots in Below Zero that have the rare crafting materials. Before you go off looking for them, though, it's best that you craft the seaglide first (so you can travel faster) and the high-capacity oxygen tank next (so you can dive for longer periods). 

Silver and Gold Location 1: Emergency Supply Crate Cave

Once you've got those, head toward the emergency supply cache. If, for some reason, this hasn't appeared in the storyline by the time you start searching for silver and gold, the video at the top of this guide will show you where to look. Here are the steps, though:

  • Exit your pod and turn right
  • Continue for about 310 meters
  • You will travel through the safe shallows and through a small creepvine area, then a larger creepvine forest
  • After you exit the creepvine forest, you will come to a glacier that is almost touching the ocean floor
  • Go through the crack to find a seabase foundation piece next to a small creepvine forest
  • Go into the forest and look down; there will be a large cave system below you

Once inside, you'll find plenty of silver and gold outcroppings to mine. At this stage in early access, some of the outcroppings will give you titanium and copper instead of silver and gold, but there's enough here to get what you need for the wiring kit.

Silver and Gold Location 2: Bendy Bridges

As you progress through the story, you'll come to an area known as Bendy Bridges. In fact, Bendy Bridges is the deep valley area a few hundred meters in front of your pod door.

To find it, go to the area in which you found the rebreather, and dive deeper down. As you get closer to the sea floor, you will start to find silver and gold outcroppings on the cliffs, in caves, and on the seabed itself. 

This is a very large area, so it is advisable to have the seaglide, the high-capacity oxygen tank, and the rebreather before venturing deep into the valley. Be sure to also take advantage of the oxygen plants in this area to stay submerged longer.

How to Find the Rebreather in Subnautica Below Zero Mon, 04 Feb 2019 15:54:54 -0500 Jonathan Moore

Just like in Subnautica, you start in a relatively safe, shallow area in Subnautica Below Zero. While you can get away from diving to the game's fathomless depths for a while, Below Zero's story and gameplay arc eventually forces you to go deeper. 

To do so with any efficiency, you'll need the rebreather. In Subnautica, you get the rebreather blueprint after unlocking the high-capacity oxygen tank. However, in Below Zero, you pick the blueprint up from a data box. 

Luckily, the rebreather schematic isn't far from your initial base, and you can get it very early in the game. The video at the top of this guide shows you exactly where it is. 

Exit your pod and go straight; the seafloor will eventually drop off and get very deep. When this happens, dive down and hug the cliff along the way. At about 100 meters, turn right; you'll see a data box sitting on a foundation platform typically found in a seabase. 

Swim down, open the data box, and grab the rebreather blueprint. 

How to Make the Rebreather

To craft the rebreather so that your character can dive deeper into Below Zero's biomes, all you need is fiber mesh and a wiring kit.

You can make fiber mesh from creepvine sample x2, and a wiring kit is made from silver ore x2. 

Now you can access all of the content Below Zero has to offer in early access. For other guides for Subnautica's pseudo-sequel, check out our Subnautica Below Zero guides hub.  

How to Find the Ribbon Plant in Subnautica Below Zero Wed, 30 Jan 2019 21:13:38 -0500 Jonathan Moore

Since Subnautica Below Zero is still in Early Access, much of the game plays a lot like the original Subnautica, just in a brand-new arctic biome. However, with that new biome comes a handful of new animals and plants. 

One of those is the Ribbon Plant, which you'll need along with Copper Ore to craft batteries. Copper Ore can still be found by breaking open rocks found on undersea cliffs and the ocean floor. Ribbon Plants, on the other hand, can prove to be much more elusive. 

Ribbon plants are often found underneath rock outcroppings and archways as well as in shallow caves. They are often in groups of two to four. To harvest them, simply pluck them; there is no need to use a knife. 

Currently, the Ribbon Plants closest to your initial base can be found by watching the video at the top of this guide.

Simply exit your base and then turn around a go behind it. Go over the cliff edge and down toward the bottom. There will be a red snake plant in the distance; go toward that. Right before you reach the plant, turn left to find the Ribbon Plants in a shallow cave. 

You can also find Ribbon Plants in a string of caves and alcoves ~57 meters from your base pod. Exit your base and go right. The terrain will dip down; swim along the sea floor and to the right to find 5-6 Ribbon Plants in two different cave areas. 

To craft a battery, you will need Ribbon Plant x2 and Copper Ore x1. Batteries are used to craft a number of items in Subnautica Below Zero, including early-game tools like the scanner and flashlight. You'll also need batteries for the seaglide once you find all of the parts.
