Conokinis is a genus of fauna in No Man's Sky. Generally just referred to as "beetles" (the term the game code uses) or similar terms, this genus is very similar to Bos. The two genera are so similar that the only 100%-confirmed difference is that Conokinis species are never found underground, only above ground on land. It is possible that Conokinis is essentially the non-hostile version of Bos, but that is only speculation (backed up by some evidence).
Currently it is assumed that all passive arachnid or crustacean-like species are Conokinis, while any aggressive and/or subterranean arachnid species are Bos. This is likely incorrect - more information is needed to properly distinguish Conokinis species from Bos species.
Like the similar species Bos, carnivorous Conokinis can be very dangerous opponents due to their fast speed and quiet steps, it can be difficult to defeat them without them landing a hit at least once.
Major Variants & Characteristics[edit | edit source]
- Insectoid characteristics - often segmented legs or bodies, antennae
- Can be four, six, or eight-legged
- May sometimes float (unclear whether or not all floating insectoids are Bos)
- Some have crab/scorpion-like claws
