The Beacon is one of the Buildings available to erect in Frostpunk.

Acquisition[ | ]

The Beacon is available after finishing research Beacon (Technology), after which it can be built from the Tech tab.

Description[ | ]

Allows us to send scouts to search the wilderness for goods and survivors and bring them to our city. Lookouts will also spot incoming groups of people.

The Beacon is a strange contraption which is best described as a tethered hot air balloon with a light beacon and lookout post attached underneath it. It functions both as a lookout post and a lighthouse by surveying the surrounding land, and allows the Captain to send out Scouts to search the wilderness for goods and survivors, and bring them to our City by the Beacon’s guiding light. Lookouts will also spot incoming groups of people and bad weather.

Notes[ | ]

  • The player can only build one Beacon at a time.
  • Upon finishing the construction of the Beacon in the A New Home scenario, a cutscene will play depicting the air balloon rising above the walls of The Pit on a tether.
