Discoveries is a generic term for the many types of game objects a player may find.

Summary[edit | edit source]

A player's discoveries are located in the Discoveries menu. For PlayStation 4 players, it is accessible with the Options button. This menu allows players to look up information on their flora, fauna, waypoint, planet, and star system discoveries. Among other things, the player will be given naming rights to their discovery, and the new name will be stored as part of the Atlas record.

Uploading discoveries[edit | edit source]

Players must manually upload each discovery for it to be recorded in the Atlas for proper credit to be given. It is possible to upload all fauna of a planet simultaneously by hovering over the category select button and pressing upload. However, you will be unable to name them. Nanite Clusters are awarded for each discovery upload. The amount is based on the rarity of the scanned species.

Discovery bonus[edit | edit source]

If the fauna of a planet are discovered completely, an additional bonus will be rewarded after confirming the completion by clicking the PAW.BW.png icon in the top right corner. This is required for Planetary Zoology milestone progress.

Renaming Discoveries[edit | edit source]

If named incorrectly, you can always rename the flora, fauna, planet, or star system by reloading at an earlier save point.
