Hirable NPC is a game mechanics page.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Many of the missions and quests in No Man's sky require the assistance of an NPC to complete. These characters can be hired to assist by providing new missions, blueprints, and other helpful information.

Each NPC requires a specific terminal to be built in separate Cylindrical Rooms, Square Rooms, or Cuboid Rooms.

Hirable types[edit | edit source]

There are five NPC types, as follows:

  • The Overseer is the first to be hired, and sends you on a series of missions allowing you to unlock base building parts and other infrastructure. They require a Construction Terminal to be hirable.
  • The Armourer tasks unlock blueprints that enhance your ability to gather resources, and your ship's weapons. They require a Weapons Terminal to be hirable.
  • The Farmer offers a series of quests giving the player blueprints enabling farming. They require an Agricultural Terminal to be hirable.

How to Hire[edit | edit source]

To hire an NPC, visit a Space station or a Trading Post and talk to the various characters you meet. Note that some of these NPCs can only be found in stations near systems that their faction controls.
