Unknown Worlds Entertainment's latest update to Subnautica: Below Zero may not be a big one, but it should make many a player happy. Yes, Prawn suits will no longer live underneath the map.

First things first though - the Subnautica: Below Zero patch has been deployed on Steam, Epic Games Store and Discord, but the latter two may encounter some oddities launching the game.

Namely, the two have had their Subnautica: Below Zero saves migrated to another location, so you may find that the game is sluggish to load for the first time. It should be just fine after that first load, though, so don't panic. 

Subnautica: Below Zero's patch notes read:


  • Performance and lots of under-the-hood improvements
  • Improved world streaming: You should no longer be able to outrun terrain or fall through the world in a PRAWN suit
  • Hardcore mode: Low oxygen will no longer warn you
  • Rocket platform physics issues addressed


  • Fixed Lifepod ping not staying disabled on game load
  • Fixed base pillar bug    
  • Fixed PRAWN suit stuck in air if built far away    
  • Fixed quality issue with clouds    
  • Fixed clipmap settings for PC & Mac    
  • Fixed fade-in of some props    
  • Disabled managed code stripping for mod support    
  • Updated translations
