Here's how to get around No Mans Sky freighters.

How do I find a No Mans Sky freighter?

No Mans Sky is a relatively inexpensive vehicle to get your first freighter. After visiting a few (though maybe your first), the freighter's captain offers your assistance. Be wary though, since you're much more likely to get a bigger freighter if you decline their offer.

How do I buy a No Mans Sky freighter?

As you explore the cosmos, you may encounter fleets, and there's a good possibility you'll find a green frigate badge or a purple freighter badge, indicating they're available for purchase. Fly within the catchment zone to receive a radio transmission. Then you can check it out and decide whether or not to purchase it.

How do I upgrade my No Mans Sky freighter?

If you already have a ship you'd like to call home, you may want to enhance it with some lovely-looking upgrades. While you're out on the road in the great unknown, keep an eye out for abandoned freighters, and you may find upgrades that you can add to your personal freighter.

  • Combat unit improve the fleets combat by two to fifteen points
  • Exploration unit improves exploration results by two to fifteen points
