One of the ship upgrades you can get in Lethal Company is the Inverse Teleporter. It’s an upgrade that is as useful to you as it is very dangerous. Many players have died because of the Inverse Teleporter. On this guide, I’ll show you how to use the Inverse Teleporter and what makes it different from the standard teleporter upgrade.
How to use the Inverse Teleporter
Once you’ve landed on any of the hostile moons, you can activate the Inverse Teleporter from the Home Base ship by pressing the yellow button next to the terminal. Once the Inverse Teleporter beams up, quickly step inside to be transported to a random location inside the facility.
You have to first buy the Inverse Teleporter from the terminal. Head to the ship and press “E,” then type in “store,” which will take you to the company’s selection of items. Type in “Inverse Teleporter,” which costs 425 credits, and type “Confirm” to finalize the ship upgrade. The Inverse Teleporter will automatically be added to your ship the moment you land on any of the moons.
Using the Inverse Teleporter is extremely dangerous, as it can teleport you anywhere in the facility. You might find yourself next to one of the Lethal Company monsters who can instantly kill you. You may even find yourself stuck behind the other side of a locked door you can’t open.
Only use the Inverse Teleporter if you’re feeling lucky or daring. There is a possibility of being teleported to a spot with a significant amount of scrap to sell. Otherwise, you’re better off doing things carefully.
Inverse Teleporter vs Teleporter
The Inverse Teleporter does the exact opposite of the Normal Teleporter. While the Inverse Teleporter sends a player to a random location inside the facility, the teleporter sends a player back into the ship at any time.
The button to operate the Inverse Teleporter is yellow, while the regular teleporter is red. You need someone on your ship in order to use the regular Teleporter to send someone back from a facility. You can use the Inverse Teleporter by yourself, but you’d need to come back to Home Base on your own.
On the issue of pricing, the Teleporter is cheaper than the Inverse Teleporter. It only costs 375 credits, compared to 425. If you’re looking for a quick way to get both of them, then looking for bee hives to steal is a fast way to do it.
It’s always a good idea to have a Teleporter to counter the unpredictable nature of the Inverse Teleporter. If you get transported to a dangerous location, then you need to have a crew member transport you back immediately. Of course, the Teleporter wouldn’t really have much use if you’re playing by yourself.
Using either teleporters will strip away anything you’re carrying. So if you teleport someone into the facility with the Inverse Teleporter or teleport someone back into your ship with the Normal Teleporter, you can’t bring anything with you.
That’s the difference between the Normal Teleporter and the Inverse Teleporter in Lethal Company and how it works. For more guides and walkthroughs, feel free to check out our main page for Lethal Company here.
