There are a wide array of vehicles within No Man’s Sky, and some of them are going to be useful for venturing around the many planets within the game. One of these is the Exocraft, and you’ll want to get to know it better.

One of the bigger releases in the last decade was No Man’s Sky, and at the time, Hello Games had large ambitions for its latest release. But, with limited resources, and high expectations, the game was largely unfinished, but has since improved drastically with multiple updates.

The game now boasts a mostly positive rating on Steam, and Hello Games has maintained the game with consistent updates. If you’re looking to know more about No Man’s Sky, then getting an understanding of the vehicles within the game is going to be key.

What types of Exocraft are in No Man’s Sky?

Exocraft is more so just a broad term to describe the many types of crafts within the game, as No Man’s Sky bolsters six types of Exocraft currently.

All six of these vehicles are going to function differently, and they’ll serve unique purposes within the game. So, you may opt for one or the other, depending on the types of terrain you have in front of you.

How to craft/purchase Exocraft’s in No Man’s Sky

Players looking to obtain some of these vehicles within the game are going to have a wide array of ways to add them into their collection. Most of the time, you’ll need to gather the blueprint for the respective Exocraft, then acquire the materials needed to craft one.

If you’re looking to snag these prints, you’ll be able to find most of them through the Construction Research Station. But, some of these are going to be acquired via missions, and below are some examples of this.
