What Does Radar Booster Do in Lethal Company

So, what does the Radar Booster do in Lethal Company? They are a new system that allows for easier team coordination. So, the first thing you need to know is that you can purchase these from the in-game store. Also, each of them can have their own name. The idea is that you place it at a location where having a beacon might be useful, such as at the exit from an underground complex, for example. Once a radar booster is on the ground, it has two main functions. First off, the team member on the ship can use the keyword “SWITCH” along with the name of the beacon to get the POV of the beacon to check what’s going on.

The other thing the radar booster does in Lethal Company, which is arguably even more useful, is pinging. You type {Ping “name of radar” from the ship, and it utters a very loud “HELLO.” That way, the people in the field have an audio cue that can help them get out of a sticky situation. It’s easy to get lost in the maze-like structures of the different celestial bodies you’ll be visiting. You might also be able to use the ping function to distract monsters, but that I cannot attest to. Let me know in the comments if that’s true or not. And if you want to know more about this update in general, check out the official patch notes.
