How To Get A Free Freighter In No Man's Sky Next
Freighters and Fleets are one of the best aspects of the Next update. This guide will tell you How To Get A Free Freighter In No Man’s Sky Next with some rough advise, based on the universe being procedurally generated and unique at every turn.

Freighters are huge vessels that act as a moving command post through space. You can store multiple ships aboard the Freighter, get new members of the Fleet, send them on missions and much more.

How To Get A Free Freighter In No Man’s Sky Next

The nature of No Man’s Sky means there’s a lot of random elements. Every system is generated in a procedural fashion, so it’s impossible for me to tell you exactly where to go. However, both myself and another editor received the same mission consecutively in two different areas. As you explore space pay attention to your surroundings. At some point you will arrive in a sector where a Freighter is under heavy attack.

There are usually between 4 and 8 enemy ships attacking a lone freighter. If you can defeat them and defend the freighter, the Commander will ask you to come aboard. If you board the vessel and speak with him, he will offer to give you the ship as a reward.

Whilst it’s near impossible to track down, you now know at least one mission to look for. It’s quite a challenge but the reward is worth it.
