Teleporting is a great way to travel great distances and escape danger, but an inverse teleporter can have the opposite effect if you’re unfamiliar with its mechanics. Here’s how the inverse teleporter works in Lethal Company and some strategies to use it.

How to Get the Inverse Teleporter in Lethal Company

You can buy the inverse teleporter in the in-game terminal store under the Ship Upgrades category for 425 scrap. To enter the shop, type store into the terminal to view its listings, then enter inverse teleporter and confirm.

Once you purchase the inverse teleporter, you can place it wherever you want and move it around when needed. However, it will only teleport you while you’re on a moon.

What Does the Inverse Teleporter Do in Lethal Company?

After buying the inverse teleporter, you can place it anywhere in your ship and activate it using the big button on your console. Upon doing this, you and your crew members can stand inside and, after a brief delay, will appear in a random location inside your moon’s facility.

The catch is that you will drop all your hotbar items. Any flashlights or walkie-talkies you try to bring will fall to the floor under the teleporter, leaving you inside a monster-infested facility with no light and limited communication with your team.

Strategies for using the Inverse Teleporter in Lethal Company

The inverse teleporter is one of the most peculiar items in Lethal Company due to its drawback of dropping your items. However, one method to make this effective is to have one player stay on the ship and navigate you through the area. In other words, they can keep an eye on any nearby monsters, potential loot, and the exit so you can get out easier.

If you have a four-player team, you can even have an extra person walk to the facility doors with flashlights or walkie-talkies so you’ll have some tools to help you.

Alternatively, you can use it as a challenge. Although risky, it is an interesting way to spice up a playthrough, and you can certainly get through a day without dying instantly. However, with the lack of flashlights, walkie-talkies, and other items making it much harder to scope out an area effectively, bringing necessary tools to the facility is generally safer, especially when factoring in a day’s time limit.
