Following the raw Beyond update, a hale crowd of new content arrived in No Man ’ s Sky, including lots of new ships, root upgrades, and more. Everyone ’ randomness now rushing to earn enough in-game money, or units, to buy this stuff .
Earning units can be painful since most of the methods involve growing plants and crafting items to sell. It could take a while to earn enough money to buy that S-class ship that costs 30 million units.
alternatively, I went searching for faster ways to earn money in No Man ’ second Sky. I came across reasonably cool methods involving farming for Whispering Eggs and manipulating a bug involving the large refiner machine .
I tried them all and they all sour even after the Beyond update. Although, manipulating the bug was besides easy and it made me super bored that I actually abandoned the crippled and started a new playthrough .
And then I came across a very easy and fun way to earn money without cheating .
Method 1: Farm Storm Crystals
storm Crystals are a type of item that appears in extreme toxic planets and you can farm them alone during toxic storms. It ’ mho tough but rewards a long ton .
here ’ s how it works :
- Find an extreme toxic planet
- Wait for a toxic storm
- Once the storm starts get out of your ship or vehicle and open your scanner
- Using the scanner, look for lightning-like icons. Mark it and go there
- These are the Storm Crystals. You need to step out of your vehicle and grab them one by one
- Repeat this process. When the storm ends wait for another storm
Using this method I was able to make over 50 million units. Bought two S class ships, a hauler and a hale crowd of early farce .
A 30-minute farming seance can get you around 10 million units.
Tips For Farming Storm Crystals
You need to do a few things to prepare for crystal farm .
- I highly recommend that you at least complete your basic tutorial missions like learning to build a base and acquiring vehicles. You’re gonna need them for the farming session.
- You’ll also need the Haz-Mat Gauntlets installed on your suit. Without this glove, you can’t pick up Storm Crystals.
- Once you find a toxic planet, first build a small base including a vehicle summoning terminals. You’ll need vehicles to get around the planet. Otherwise, you won’t survive long at extreme toxicity.
- Make sure to clear enough space in your inventory to store Storm Crystals. They only stack 5 per block.
- While you wait for a toxic storm, look around the planet for ancient bones. They offer some good Units as well.
Method 2: Farm Crashed Ships
The other method involves farming crashed ships. This is one of the fastest methods to farm units. however, you ’ ll need to finish the chief missions first to unlock the Portal .
- All you have to do is browse the NMSCoordinates on Reddit sub and look for crashed ship coordinates shared by fellow travelers.
- Once you find a crashed ship location, jump into the game, open a Portal, punch in the symbols and go through the portal to find the ship.
- Claim the ship, repair just the stuff you need to fly it, and then head to a space station to sell it for Units or trade it for something better.
Method 3: Chlorine Processing
This is arguably the easiest method for making Units fast. You can make 30 million Units in about half an hour .
But, using this method felt a bit like cheating. While I don ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate prefer to use this method acting, it ’ s a great way to earn Units in the Expeditions modality .
This method involves processing Chlorine in a refiner with Oxygen. The consequence is still Chlorine but when interracial with Oxygen it more than 4X the total you put in .
Chlorine is one of the most expensive resources in NMS so it ’ randomness slowly money. hera ’ s how it works .
- First, buy some Chlorine and then get a lot of Oxygen
- Build a medium or large refiner (portable refiner is no good for this method)
- Put Chlorine and Oxygen in the refiner and start processing
- After about 4 minutes you’ll have to take out the processed Chlorine and run the refiner again
- Sell all the Chlorine
promise this method acting will make the serve of earning Units easier for you in No Man ’ second Sky. If you ’ ve found any other big ways to earn money fast, leave a comment and let me know.
