The Astrocetus Tek Saddle is a Saddle introduced in Genesis: Part 1 and also available on Genesis: Part 2 and Lost Island. It is used to ride a tamed  Astrocetus.

Players can unlock the engram by defeating the Master Controller on Beta difficulty or above.

This saddle comes equipped with three gun turrets and can convert the  Astrocetus's energy into bombs with  Ambergris as ammo.

With the Astrocetus Tek Saddle, you are able to build a maximum of 5 structures similarly to other creatures with platform saddles.



  • While it is possible (with the required Tekgram unlocked) to craft, equip and ride on the Tek Saddle of an Astrocetus, passenger seats for firing Element pulses are disabled for survivors who does not possess the required Tekgram.
  • The Astrocetus Tek Saddle and the  Rock Drake Tek Saddle are the only 2 Tek Saddles that have passenger seats.
  • The Astrocetus Tek Saddle is the most expensive Tek Saddle with a cost of 82 element. The Rock Drake Tek Saddle is 2nd most expensive at 75 element.
