The Arctic Ray is a mid-sized fauna species that will be present in Subnautica: Below Zero.


The Arctic Ray's body is bulky and turquoise in color, covered with horizontal red stripes from the eyes to the tail. The tail is club-shaped, purple in color and adorned with two translucent blue fins. The ventral side of the ray seems to be mostly cyan in color, with the dorsal side being red.

The creature sports two large pairs of fins on each side of its body, with the front pair being smaller than the posterior ones. Two stalks protrude from the front on the dorsal side. The stalks have glowing red tips.

On the underside of the ray's front fins is a small mouth filled with sharp teeth. Behind the mouth is an extremely odd arrangement of eyes - a total of seven, all of which glow bright pink. There is one central oval-shaped eye, larger than all of the others and embedded into the body, with six smaller eyes protruding from the sides of the body attached to slender eye stalks.


The Arctic Ray has been seen preying on small fish in developer videos.


The Arctic Ray is similar in appearance to rays, Though has a major anatomical difference in that instead of the two large wings seen in both rays of Earth and 4546B, it has four wings. The eye stalks resemble those seen in gastropods.
