In this guide, you will learn where to find the compass in Subnautica.
Starting from the coral tube sticking up out of the water, you will need to look at the bottom right engine on the back of the Aurora. You have to head in the opposite direction of the engine until you reach a small wreck in the kelp forest.
It is recommended to have a standard O2 tank and a sea glide for both locations.
The only threat you’ll encounter at both locations is the stalker, which you can easily outrun with the sea glide, so it shouldn’t be too big a threat.
Starting from the coral tube, you have to look to the left of the Aurora, and you have to look for a large cloud that isn’t moving and then head a little bit to the left of the large cloud until you reach Lifepod 3.
If the databox is there, then you can easily pick it up.
