Where will you end up?

Cost425
Cooldown3 minutes and 30 seconds

The Inverse Teleporter teleports a player to a random location inside the Facility. You must land on a Moon if you want to use this Teleporter, as using it in orbit won’t do anything.

The Inverse Teleporter costs 425 credits. You can purchase it on the Terminal by typing “Store” in the command bar, then “Inverse Teleporter,” and entering “Confirm.” While personal items purchased through the Terminal appear outside the ship once you land, the Inverse Teleporter will immediately appear inside the ship when purchased.

Tip: Do not use the Inverse Teleporter alone

Do not use the Inverse Teleporter if you are playing alone because you can be teleported to a locked area that is inescapable with no way out of the Facility.

How to use the Inverse Teleporter

To use the Inverse Teleporter, hit the white button in the glass case beside the main monitors. The person who wants to teleport must then stand inside the Inverse Teleporter. This player will be beamed to a random spot inside the Facility.

Use the Inverse Teleporter to pick up a full inventory of valuable scrap, but make sure another player stays behind in the Home Base to monitor the teleported player’s movement. The person who stays behind can bring the teleported player back to the ship should they get lost. However, any use of the Teleporter removes any items held by the teleported player.

The Inverse Teleporter has a three-and-a-half-minute cooldown. Walkie-talkies are useless to help the teleported person, as they’d lose all their equipment in the move. You can, however, have two players who are using the walkie-talkie outside of the Facility.

Tip: Have a man at the chair

One should stay in the ship to monitor the teleported person and the other walkie-talkie user’s movements, while the other should hover around the outside of the Facility and move in when the teleported person is close enough to the Facility’s Main Entrance to be rescued.

To summarize:

  • Purchase the Inverse Teleporter for 425 credits via the Terminal.
  • Use the white button next to the monitor to activate the Inverse Teleporter.
  • Remove all held items (Shovel, Walkie-talkie, Flashlight, etc.) before entering the Teleporter.
  • Go inside the Teleporter to teleport to a random place inside the Facility.
  • Have someone observe the teleported players’ movements on the monitor.
  • The camera duty member should communicate to someone at the main entrance in case the teleported player gets close enough to be guided out of the Facility.

Lethal Company Teleporter vs Inverse Teleporter: Differences explained

The main difference between the Teleporter and the Inverse Teleporter is that the Teleporter brings you back to the ship while the Inverse Teleporter sends you away from it.

The standard Teleporter is a one-way system for players to teleport back into the ship. It functions with the ship’s monitor system to pick up anyone inside the Facility. You need to have someone inside the ship to monitor your teammates’ movements in case they need to be rescued. The Teleporter cannot be used if there is no one inside the ship. Use walkie-talkies to note if players need rescuing or to teleport their corpse back to the Home Base without the risk of dying yourself.

The standard Teleporter is best used to save your teammates if they have an enemy chasing them, or to teleport a corpse back to base and save the team from receiving a fine.

Tip: Drop your items in the ship before you use the Teleporters

Your items vanish if you use the Teleporters, so make sure that you enter with nothing on you.

The Inverse Teleporter teleports a player to a random location in the facility. It can place you in a locked or hard-to-reach area on the moon you are visiting. It is best used to obtain every scrap of loot on the map.
