No Man’s Sky Cheats

Unlockable DLC Items

DLC Instructions: You can check to make sure your DLC Items have been downloaded by going to the No Man’s Sky icon (without starting the game) in the PlayStation 4 console’s Main Menu where you can see the Overview, select “Recent Activities” for the game, and press the X button on “Related Items” to go to “My Add-Ons” where you can see a list of everything available to buy for the game, what’s free & what you already own.

If it’s listed as “Free” then press the X button on it and it will be downloaded. If it’s listed under “My Add-Ons” then you click on that whole box to get a new screen with all the DLC Add-Ons listed and a download arrow next to each item. Press the X button on each one of those items to add them to your download queue. – Only after the downloads have finished start the game.

Protip: In case you’re not seeing these DLC items in-game, it’s because they are named differently in the game. The Alpha Vector ship is named Domanish S84 in-game, and (in the US) the Rezosu AZ65 is named Final Shadow XIV in game.

Note: You cannot lose your pre-order bonus starship if you die in space, because the ship isn’t lost, it just needs to be repaired at the nearest space station. – Plus the developers have said that you can “call” the pre-order bonuses and such on command.

Money Tricks

Long-term Big Money Trick: A good playstyle to make big money with is trading resource materials at alien trading posts. If you’re lucky enough to be in a galaxy with a planet that has a large amount of Atlas Stones, then keep revisiting the location its found at to pick up more of them. After that trade them in because they are worth HUGE amounts of money, it’s the most valuable item in the game!

Short-term Quick Money Trick: Outside of fighting spacebattles or pirating/looting other spaceships, another playstyle to make your way with through the universe is to discover new things through exploration. If you discover a previously undiscovered animal, ocean, tree, planet or star system, simply scan it, and upload to the Atlas — No Man Sky’s universal database that can be shared with other players of the game — to earn some quick units, the in-game currency.

No Man’s Sky Tips and Tricks

There are 18 quintillion planets in the game. Even if each planet was visited at a rate of one per second, it would take five billion years to explore them all – by which the Sun in our solar system would have burnt out, essentially giving the game a near infinite number of worlds to explore!

To help guide players through such a vast number of locations No Man’s Sky has an overarching goal of reaching the centre of the universe, where there are more bountiful resources and more challenging locations to discover. This, however, is just a guide, and players are free to explore the game however they like.

On a planet, players are equipped with a multi-tool to defend against deadly predator creatures and mine resources. Attacking creatures – aggressive or otherwise – or mining resources will call the attention of the Sentinels, a robotic force who seeks to keep each planet in a natural, undisturbed state. The more you fight back against the Sentinels, the higher your Wanted level, and the tougher they will become – from flying drones to quadrupedal machines, towering walkers and eventually dropships.

Space is also patrolled by the Sentinels, so attacking traders for their valuable goods or scavenging resources from freighters will also see you gaining a Wanted level, with Sentinel police ships coming to defend the natural order.

It’s not just the Sentinels who you need to beware of in space – pirates will swoop on the unwary, requiring you to evade and escape or fight back to defend your cargo.

Resources are a vital part of exploration, trading and survival. No Man’s Sky has its own periodic table of elements – some familiar to our world, some new and unknown – and each one is used in different ways. Some can be used to craft new items and weapons once the player has learnt the technology.

While planets might be unexplored, they aren’t necessarily uninhabited. Alien races have their own distinct languages, which can be learned a word at a time at ancient structures or through conversing with the aliens themselves. Unlock their vocabulary and your chance of a successful interaction increases, raising your standing with them.

Common resources on one planet could be scarce in another – mining on one planet to sell on another can be a lucrative trade. Players can also craft Products from resources, which can be sold for higher prices – discover a certain race’s preferred Product and you can make a living from supplying them.

While some planets are beautiful and serene, many have extreme conditions that make survival difficult. Some planets will have extreme temperatures – from freezing lows to scorching highs – while others are drenched in toxic rain, heavily irradiated or completely submerged.

For the unprepared, surviving on planets with extremes will be a challenge. Every second spent exposed in the elements will chip away at your protective shielding, which can be restored by taking shelter or expending resources to recharge it. By upgrading your suit’s technologies, you can survive harsh climates for longer, run faster, jump higher and explore for longer.

Whether you die under the claws of a creature, by the lasers of a space pirate or just succumb to the elements, death will have a real impact on your progress. Resources will be lost and technology damaged as your body is regenerated at your last save point, so make sure to put up a fight!
