A compass is a navigational instrument for determining direction relative to the Earth's magnetic poles. It consists of a magnetized pointer (usually marked on the North end) free to align itself with Earth's magnetic field. The compass greatly improved the safety and efficiency of travel, especially ocean travel.
- Its is obtained after finding and repairing it (with a repair skill of 30, using the nearby Compass sensor module, or taking it to a work bench) at the Crashed scout bus.
- Both versions of the compass are quest items and therefore cannot be removed until given to Daniel.
- If the player picks up the Compass sensor module but does not use it to repair the compass, you will be unable to remove it from your inventory.
- When Follows-Chalk is your companion and the compass is in your inventory, he will say: "So, that compass will always point north, huh. Even if it can't see the stars?"
