The Radar Tower has a 1km range. Once powered, it will immediately clear fog of war on the map. As long as it remains powered, it will also display:

If the Radar Tower loses power, the fog of war will remain cleared, but none of the other information will show.

Radar Towers can be renamed in the UI, and display the same information as when hovered over on the map.


  • The Radar Tower, the HUB and the Space Elevator all have a collision box height of 118 meters.
  • It features a ladder separated into multiple sections. Using the ladders, pioneers can climb up to 76 meters high.
    • It has been revealed on stream that the ladder of the tower was made by Jace and was a prototype that made it to the game and will be replaced eventually.[1]
  • It is the only building to feature multiple Indicator Lights, 3 total. All of them display the same state at the same time.
