Asteroids are small planetoids that can be mined for resources.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Asteroids are small rocky bodies that orbit a star, and are much smaller than a normal planet. They play an important part in No Man's Sky as they can be mined from your starship for resources.

In No Man's Sky, many planets have rings of captured asteroids in orbit around them.

Types and Resources[edit | edit source]

Here are all asteroid types and resources that can be mined from them:

  • Small: most common type. Can be mined for Tritium, Silver or Gold, in order of rarity.
  • Large: less common than small asteroids, but can still be found in most asteroid fields in any system. Similar to Resource Deposits, they can be mined entirely or partially. Source of Silver or Gold.
  • Crystal: rare asteroid type, can only be found in certain systems. Are identified for being spiky, similar to planetary crystals, and more colorful than other asteroids. Can be a source of Platinum.
