Key Lock


Place on a door or a hatch to avoid any unwelcome guests. In order to activate the lock, you must aim at the lock and hold E to open the context menu. In the menu, hover your cursor over the 'Lock' option and click. After successfully locking, the green dot in the top right of the lock will change into a red dot and move to the top left.

Do not make a key! the person who places a key lock can open the door without a key. Crafting a key and carrying it with you allows anyone who kills you to open your door.
