No Man’s Sky – Expedition Complete Walkthrough

No Man’s Sky – Expedition Complete Walkthrough 1 - steamlists.com

This is as close to a PACIFIST run as you can get; we are NOT fighting PIRATES. We are NOT fighting Sentinels. Both of those activities can get you killed.
 
 
Second note: This would NOT be possible without the AWESOME NMS players that build fantastic helper bases.
 
 

Preface (FACTS)

  • Your are a pre-cracked egg, any bump = LOOP
  • Aggressive Fauna CAN attack you underground = LOOP
  • Before you get to your ship a LOOP is no big deal!
  • Milestones will be referred to as Ix-Mx for Iteration x = number – Milestone x = number

 
 
 

Thank You Notice

This guide would NOT be possible without the AWESOME NMS players that build fantastic helper bases.
 
 
 

Begin Expedition

Load any existing save and DISABLE multiplayer. Now exit to Mode Select.
 
 
Select a new save, choose Expedition and wait for the game to load you in.
 
Once in the game, please DIE, boosting straight up and falling into a cliff.
 
 
Reload your newest save, should have 0:00 time.
 
Once reloaded, check the area, look for:
 
1 Red paw prints
 
2 Di-hydrogen
 
3 Location of ship
 
(head on a swivel)
 
 
At this stage NOTHING changes if you die on your way to your ship, just reload.
 
You should take this time to view your surroundings to make sure it is a relatively easy path to your ship (eg not a severe up or down hill).
 
 
***Every LOOP changes YOUR spawn location to your ship. You ship does not change location.
 
 
 

=== GENERAL RULES (ALWAYS FOLLOW) ===

1 Perform an autosave BEFORE taking off
 
2 Never view inventory unless IN ship
 
3 If forced to go down steep hill, use zig-zag method
 
4 DO NOT use melee boost jump
 
5 DO NOT use blue jetpack surge plants
 
6 Red paw print fauna, shoot on sight (after I2-M5)
 
7 When pirates scan/attack, summon Anomaly
 
8 Always install Exosuit SHIELD upgrades (3 in tech, 3 in normal)
 
9 Hazard protection upgrades are the REFILLABLE type. (If you get one that is not, install it and scrap to collect useful materials)
 
 
 

Expedition Route

Starting: Rowland-Desk (Christole Oich)
 
Pirate: Toympiae III (Rocyreusis XVII)
 
AP1: Cebrac-Eliwyn (Ennect)
 
AP2: Romestovot (Alecapae Beta)
 
AP3: Uffanymo III (Rora 15/J5)
 
AP4: Chistor-Olev XIII (Haumeadl M26)
 
AP5: Sophis (Kaok 84/O4)
 
 
 

Head To Your Ship

Make you way to your ship, try to immediately collect 60+ carbon.
 
Quickly craft one set of Creature Pellets (5)
 
 
Our first but not our last, DANGEROUS milestone I2-M5 (Iteration two, Milestone five)
 
While en route to your ship you must locate an aggressive animal (red paw print, two types on starting planet).
 
The two-legged Strider is the easiest. While walking towards it, shoot it with your mining beam for just a quick burst. This makes the Strider stretch their neck out and won’t attack for a good 1 to 1.5 seconds. Hold your “e” key while approaching until you see the animation of you dropping the food pellet.
 
 
Now let go of “e” but immediately hold “e” again until you have the choice to adopt.
 
Choose 1 to adopt. Hold tab to dismiss the notification. I use the quick menu and dismiss the pet. That way if any other fauna approach, just shoot them, see GR6.

— It’s critical to get this milestone out of the way —
 
— We are in a good spot to LOOP if anything goes awry —
 
 
***Do not claim any rewards, we are still in the “Britney -oops I did it again” phase. If we die before we get to our ship, no stress. Simply reload and try again.
 
 
Keep collecting carbon when you aren’t collecting Di-hydrogen
 
 
Try to get, min:
 
80 Di-hydrogen
 
200 Carbon
 
 
You made it to your ship – YAY!!
 
 
 

Repairing You Ship

Claim I1-M4 (Iteration one, Milestone four)
 
Claim I1-M2
 
Craft 2 Di-hydrogen Jelly’s
 
Refine 30 Condensed Carbon
 
Refine 50 Pure Ferrite
 
 
Before you leave, scan all 5 fauna and claim 100%
 
 
 

At the Space Station

Clean up your inventory, move items to keep into your ship
 
 
Keep:
 
Oxygen (fill to ~500)
 
Carbon
 
Phosphorus
 
Ferrite Dust (fill to ~500)
 
Pellets
 
 
Sell the rest
 
Claim I2-M5 & sell rewards
 
Optional: keep the 150 Ancestral Memories
 
 
BUY:
 
14 Life Support Gel
 
24 Ion Battery’s
 
10 Metal Plating
 
9 Di-hydrogen Jelly (back room)
 
100 Cobalt
 
100 Magentised Ferrite
 
 
1 Cargo slot (5k)
 
 
 

Learn Words

From:
 
3 Vy’keen
 
1 Gek
 
2 Korvax
 
 
 

Memory Fragments

Expand all memory fragments, install good ones and sell (for nanites) junk ones.
 
 
 

Visit Polo #1

Leave the station , summon the Anomaly and talk to Polo
 
Claim I1-M3 (Observing the Cycle)
 
Build Solar Ray
 
 
Buy 1 Cargo slot (in back area)
 
 
Claim I1-M1 (Remembrance)
 
Claim I1-M8 (Cycle Observed)
 
Claim I2-M8 (Perpetuity)
 
 
— IMPORTANT —
 
Save scum* the Weapon memory fragment until you get what you want. The only thing you might have to kill are the automated defense drones (orbs) on a Derelict Freighter. The mining laser works fine for killing fauna.
 
 
Save scum* the Inventory memory fragments (5)
 
You want SHIP and EXOSUIT and only 1 Multi-tool
 
(Note: this may not really work so don’t fret)
 
 
Define: Save scum: Perform a save (auto or manual), perform an action, if desired results, continue. If not then reload save and repeat.
 
 
 

Doing Polo’s Job

Exit the Anomaly and fly to the planet outside the Space station: Mezuenus Uttsu
 
Land anywhere but NOT at someone’s base.
 
 
There are NO aggressive fauna. Scan 100% fauna and claim discovery bonus. You should have 3k nanites.
 
Claim I4-M6 (Cluster Horde)
 
 
Place your refiner and:
 
Refine Jelly’s and craft 10 Launch Fuel.
 
 
Refine 250 Oxygen into 125 Condensed Carbon
 
 
Let’s collect some Ancestral Memories: (200 turn in amount)
 
Try to find a cluster of 3 to 5 fauna and toss out a pellet.
 
Note: don’t simply feed one fauna, using the quick menu you can pop out a pellet and feed/draw in several nearby fauna.
 
 
After you collect the Ancestral memories from a group of fauna TWICE, they will kind of stay put. Go find another group of fauna nearby and drop a pellet. Now you can collect double the memories and kind of stay busy while waiting for the cool-down.
 
 
***Make sure to collect 50 more than the turn in amount. eg 250, 450,
 
 
Now lets harvest (w/Solar Ray) some Liquid Sun: (250 turn in amount)
 
Find a nearby deposit and instead of using your Terrain manipulator, use your Solar Ray. It will drain fast so recharge the Solar Ray with sodium. Note you can also scrap the Solar Ray and rebuild it to refill it. That’s why you bought the extra MF and Cobalt.
 
 
***Make sure to collect 32 more than the turn in amount. eg 282, 482,
 
 
Make sure you can turn in a total of FIVE (5) to Polo.
 
So 1050 Ancestral Memories
 
— OR —
 
1282 Liquid Sun
 
— OR —
 
Any combination that gives you 5 turn ins.
 
 
Now kill the same type of fauna until you have a stack of 10 meat (or more). Do not alert the Sentinels!

Note: The first time you open your galaxy map the game tells you about the Atlas and gives you a path. Switch it back to the Expedition path once the animations complete.
 
 
Follow the expedition path and warp to Toympiae III (UPDATE!)

QUESTION: Why are we doing this?
 
ANSWER: We are going to use the teleporter to travel to a base in THIS system. Unless we reload the teleporter listing will have bases from Anchor point 3. We don’t want any of those.
 
 
*** NOTICE – THIS PLANET WANTS TO KILL YOU! ***
 
Don’t let it!
 
 
===========================================

There are a couple of bases listed, whichever one is available:
 
Access the Space Station teleporter and travel to “Sentinel Tower” base.

Just walk over to the Pillar controls and choose option 2, then 4 to exit.
 
Shoot any barrels you see, walk over to the waypoint and make a manual save.
 
Confirm the manual save (if you choose Quit to Mode Select you can tell if only a couple of seconds have past since your last save). Now reload the manual save.
 
 
You need to do this 4 times, each cycle should kill 5 sentinels and we need 20 kills.
 
 
***Use patience during this, we are nearly done with this dangerous killer event.
 
 
Once you have earned the I4-M5 (Purneum Dreams), make another manual save.
 
 
Quickly get back in your ship.
