The Radar Booster is a special type of item that can be bought from the store in the Terminal in Lethal Company. It is like a small beacon that emits light from a small white orb on the top of a stand-like satellite. It weighs 19 pounds and can be carried by players to any location they want, deploying it wherever necessary. 

It acts like a portable secondary computer for players to monitor an area. It can also be used as a beacon because scanning makes the Radar Booster show up like the Ship and Facility Entrance beacons. The booster can also be used as a distraction because it gives off noise waves when pinged from the ship, which attracts all monsters to it, giving the players time to escape the premises swiftly. Just make sure that one player is staying in the ship at all times to be able to ping the booster and warn his teammates about enemies around the area where the booster is.
