Survival Tool is the most basic tool in Empyrion: Galactic Survival, usually available to any player from the very beginning. It has three modes switchable via Right Mouse Button: Defence, Mining and Salvaging.

When in Defence mode, Survival Tool works as a rudimentary beam weapon with comparatively low damage but can still be used for defeating predators in early game. It works on the line-of-sight principle at a very small range, damaging enemies as long as the fire button is pressed. It can also be used for destroying vegetation like plants and trees, dropping wood for the latter.

When in Mining mode, Survival Tool works as an underpowered Drill, being able to smash resource rock and slowly dig through the ground. It does not require any energy sources, however.

When in Salvaging mode, Survival Tool works as a simplified Multi Tool, damaging blocks and possibly returning them (or their components) when the block's HP is exhausted. Just as with the Mining mode, Salvaging does not require any ammo but is rather slow and has a low return factor of 0.333, meaning that there is only 1/3 chance of returning the block (or all its components) without any losses.

Survival Tool cannot repair blocks.

Crafting[]

Should a player lost its Survival Tool, a new one can be crafted in the Survival Constructor at no resource cost.
