Summary[edit | edit source]

The following is a list of various Exotic-Archetype starships discovered by different players.

(For a list of all ship types, refer to the Starship Catalogue)

Description[edit | edit source]

All exotic ships are part of the S-class and will have top tier bonus values in all three categories. Their values range between 35-50% DMG, 55-60% Shield and 50-65% Hyperdrive range. Since the price is multiplied by slotsize and the exotic ships normally lack in that regard, their price range is a fair 10M-15M units. This makes them deadly specialists if one is lucky enough to find one.

While there are only two distinct types of exotic ships based on their cockpit, the community has come to differentiate visual classes with varying names. All of these classifications stem from the ships nose instead or its additional ornaments. These are the Royal with the long nose, the Guppy/Ball without any nose and the Squid/Calamary with its protruding nose similar to tentacles. In some groups the top- and downwinged exotic also counts as its own "Tall" type. There is also the exotic type that does not have the full beak of the Type-7 but a single stinger like a Mosquito. There seems to be no real concensus how to name them but there is a broad basis in each group. Ships with special golden or silver ornaments and the famous print of 7 on their topwing are also referred to as the elite Type-7, often seen on Royal type ships as Royal Type-7.

Inventory[edit | edit source]

The inventory for Exotic ships are all in the small range of 15-20. Their tech limit is 4-6 slots.

Tags[edit | edit source]

Tag Meaning Description
[NL] NO location Starship recorded, but with no location or region to find it
[P] Portal Address System address offered for easy purchase

The list below is alphabetically sorted by documented regions and followed by an alphabetical order of ships. Only regions with a properly recorded coordinate or portal address - or those that have ship pages that do this - are considered not [NL] and get their separate entry. Everything else can not be sought out and does not fulfill the catalogue's demand for quality. Ships that can not be found and bought only serve a historic purpose.
Note that regions only get marked by a [P] as replacement if there is no ship offering the region portal code. Regions and ships without portal coordinates do NEVER get a [P]. Coordinates are not enough!

Exotic Types[edit | edit source]

All exotic ships are part of one of two designs, either the squid or the ball. Due to the equal chance of spawning an exotic and with only one per system, the many variations of the ball design seem to have caused the squid variant to be rather rare. With several special ornaments for the ball design, resulting in the Type-7 variant of either exotic type, this chance to find a squid type exotic is reduced even more.

Guppy[edit | edit source]

Guppy

The Guppy is part of the ball cockpits and its main feature is the lack of any nose. While there are many variations of the Guppy, some more than others have gathered a following among No Man's Sky players due to the elongated rear and other parts making it more closely resemble a fish. It doesn't matter which one.

Mosquito

A Mosquito exotic ship is like the Guppy part of the ball cockpits and its main defining feature is its simple, small and needle-shaped nose.

Royal[edit | edit source]

Royal Type-7

The Royal exotic ship is the last of the ball cockpit ships and is known for its prominent double nose. One type in particular, the Royal Type-7, enjoys a pretty high esteem among players for its lush ornaments in gold or silver with the signature 7 on its topwing. A ship design that is presumable more common in Vy'keen systems.

Squid[edit | edit source]

Squid

Unlike the many variations of the ball cockpit, the squid only comes with its signature tentacle nose and a wide array of colours and some shades. Despite this lack of customization, in regard to the many additions to the ball cockpit, this has become a rather rare design, making it all the more valuable to get one in a desired colour.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The front fuselage of the Royal (it's long angular nose and ventral mounted lance) bears an uncanny resemblance to that of Spike Spiegel's Swordfish II from the iconic anime Cowboy Bebop.
