Raft engine controls anchor not working – How To Fix

Fixing controls is hard work.

If you are having problems with the Engine controls not working with your Anchor, the reason is most likely that you are not using the correct Anchor. In short, only the Advanced Stationary Anchor will work with Engine controls. Because of this, using anything other than an Advanced Stationary Anchor prevents the Engine Controls from working. That said, to fix the Engine controls not working with your Anchor, you must get an Advanced Stationary Anchor to replace it in Raft.

How to get an Advanced Stationary Anchor in Raft

To get the Advanced Stationary Anchor in Raft, you must travel to Temperance Island. You can visit Temperance Island during Raft's Third Chapter after Varuna Point. On Temperance Island, you can find the blueprint for the Advanced Stationary Anchor at the Observatory inside a Locker. You can also find the character Shogo while on Temperance Island, so check while you get the Advanced Stationary Anchor blueprint.

How to make an Advanced Stationary Anchor

Once you have the blueprint, you can make an Advanced stationary Anchor with the following resources:

  • 10 Plank: Get Planks by harvesting Flotsam in the ocean
  • Six Rope: Get rope by harvesting and crafting it from Palm Leaves
  • Four Metal Ingot: Get Metal Ingots from melting down Metal ore in a Smelter
  • Four Bolt: Get bolts by crafting them from Metal Ingots
  • Eight Titanium Ingot: Get Titanium Ingots by melting down Titanium ore inside of a Smelter

After crafting the Advanced Stationary Anchor, you can place it on your raft if you have a three-by-three space free for it. When placed, the Advanced Anchor can be controlled with a switch on the Anchor or Engine Controls.
