No Man’s Sky: How to Adopt a Pet

In No Man’s Sky, players can adopt up to six organic, robotic pets by feeding them creature pellets or iron batteries on their home planets.

In No Man’s Sky, players can adopt a pet for a friend to accompany them on their journey. Although pets are primarily cosmetic items, they can be fed and decorated with additional cosmetics. To acquire a pet, players will first need to find a planet with local flora and fauna. Then, to adopt a pet, players will need to craft creature pellets, which they can create from carbon found on most planets. Once players have creature pellets, they must search the area for a creature they would like to adopt as a pet.

Once players have identified a creature they would like as a pet in No Man’s Sky, they should give them a creature pellet. While their new friend enjoys the treat, players will have adoption to adopt them. For adoption to be successful, players must have a free slot in their creature menu, which can be found by selecting the paw print icon from the quick menu. Players will only have a limited number of creature slots available, and they can purchase more for nanites directly from the creature menu. By purchasing additional slots, players will be able to hold a total of six pet companions. Once a companion has been added to the creature menu, players can go to the creature menu and select summon. Once a pet is summoned, it will stand near the player on any No Man’s Sky planet they are on, and the player can feed and interact with their pet. It should be noted that there are certain areas of the game where players will not be able to summon their pets.

In addition to adopting local wildlife for pets, such as lizards or small four-legged animals, players can also adopt robots they discover on their journey. To find a robotic companion, players will have to warp to an unexplored system. Players can identify an unexplored system as no races are listed and economic information is listed as no data. To do this, players must first acquire Ion Batteries and fill their Hyperdrive with fuel in No Man’s Sky. From there, players can warp to whatever uncharted system they choose.

No Man's Sky Companion Mechanical Update

Once players have landed on a planet in the uncharted system, they must open their creature menu. When players open the menu, if they see the option for iron batteries, it indicates that robots inhabit this planet. Conversely, if players see Creature Pellets in their creature menu, they must teleport to another planet and try again. Players can then explore the planet in search of a robot they’d like to adopt and power them up with iron batteries. Once fed, players can adopt them as organic creatures and store them in No Man’s Sky if they have the creature inventory slots in No Man’s Sky.

Additionally, players can change the color of their animal by having it lay an egg. Players must allow the animal to stay on its home planet and feed it regularly to increase happiness. Once the animal is happy enough, it will lay an egg, which will take 24 in-game hours. Once players have the egg, they must take it to the Anomaly. Near the merchant who rates the food, players will discover the Egg Sequencer. Players should then look for the Dye Injector option, which is to the right of the Nexus where they land. Players must fill the Dye Injector with an item that matches the color they would like their pet to become, and when the egg hatches, it will match the Dye Injector item.
