- — In-Game Description
Alien Nanites have two uses:
Alien Nanites when thrown will create a large rectangular area, which acts as an anti-gravity field, identical to the ones at Holly Hatchery. This will last for 30 seconds, and allows players to dash in any given direction in the field, with a very low amount of gravity slowly returning them to the floor. This field is deployed similarly to a Port-a-Fort, with a UI indicator as to where it will land. It is impossible to deploy the glider in the field.
Alien Nanites act as 'Alien' equivalents to Nuts 'n' Bolts, in that they are used to craft new weaponry in combination with existing weapons. Unlike Nuts 'n' Bolts however, they do not have their own inventory slot, and will take up a standard slot on the player's hotbar. Alien Nanites are used to craft Plasma Cannons, Kymera Ray Guns, Pulse Rifles and Rail Guns. For more information about how this is done, see Crafting.
