    This achievement is awarded for creating the Cyclops.

    You will need a Mobile Vehicle Bay in order to create the Cyclops. This means you will need to explore and scan fragments to unlock the Mobile Vehicle Bay blueprint, and to unlock the Cyclops.

    If you’re trying to unlock the Cyclops then you probably already created the Mobile Vehicle Bay earlier when unlocking the Seamoth.

    Unlocking the Cyclops is fairly long winded. But the ends justify the means. It may be a grind but the Cyclops advances your exploration like nothing before it. Explore deeper, dock a Seamoth or a Prawn suit within the Cyclops, it’s a moving base.

    The Cyclops Blueprints
    You will need to unlock three different sets of blueprints to unlock the Cyclops. There’s the Cyclops Hull, Cyclops Engine, and Cyclops Bridge blueprints.

    Each set requires three fragments to be scanned in order to complete the component. Each component is shown individually in the PDA. Each completed component will progress the overall Cyclops blueprint by 33%; to fully complete the Cyclops blueprint, you must find and scan nine fragments in total.

    Finding Cyclops fragments
    There is an element of RNG in fragment spawns. But normally parts of the Cyclops can be found near the back of the Aurora. That’s the right hand side of the giant shipwreck if you’re looking at it from your Lifepod. Watch out there will be a dangerous Reaper Leviathan swimming around those parts so be careful.

    Creating the Cyclops

    After unlocking all Blueprints, you’ll need the following materials to create the Cyclops in the Mobile Vehicle Bay:

    Total raw materials list:

    Creepvine Seed Cluster x1
    Copper x2
    Silver x2
    Table Coral Sample x2
    Gold x3
    Lead x3
    Stalker Tooth x3
    Quartz x6
    Lithium x6
    Titanium x30

    The Cyclops recipe is:

    Plasteel Ingot x3
    Enameled Glass x3
    Lubricant x1
    Advanced Wiring Kit x1
    Lead x3

    Unlocking the achievement
    Once you have created the Cyclops the achievement will unlock.

    If you have an old save file, where you already have the Cyclops, you can load this saved game and then retroactively unlock the achievement. The same applies for most of these achievements.

    I unlocked this achievement in Freedom mode. So it’s definitely possible to unlock this achievement in Freedom and Survival mode.

    z RagnaroK zI'm having an issue unlocking this one. I used the walk-through guide and created a save file in Freedom mode on my PC. I used the "nocost" command and built the rest of the vehicles and got those achievement's just fine. Any ideas?

    After building the Cyclops, I saved my game, reloaded, and the achievement popped.
