No Man's Sky: derelict freighters and freighter upgrades
by Sandoozee .January 13, 2021
So you've spent a bunch of time flying around and you've gotten yourself a freighter! Freighters open up a lot more things for you to do in the game as well as being a very nice mobile base (after upgrading and building).
The first thing that you'll likely want to add to your freighter is the matter beam. This makes it so that you can access your freighter storage, or any other storage unit you've built on the freighter, from anywhere in the same solar system. Basically if you can manage this than you've essentially got an extra 200+ slots for items at all times (assuming you've built all the freighter storage units on your freighter).
Sadly adding the matter beam is easier said than done. It's going to require 5 salvage frigate modules to purchase the blueprints for it which are a pain in the behind to get. There's a few ways to get them but none are going to make it a quick and easy goal to accomplish:
You can loot storage units on crashed freighters in hopes of finding one, but it is very rare.
Destroying NPC freighter cargo pods and pod ships. These options may land you a salvage freighter module but they will definitely cause a reduction in your standing with the race captaining them.
Nexus missions can have salvage modules as a reward. The nice thing about this is that you can simply check them out first and see if that is the reward before investing a ton of time into it.
Frigate mission can also reward you with salvage modules but again it's a waiting game and you're just hoping you'll get one. You're chances do increase with industrial missions at least.
Derelict freighters. Below is a video and explanation of the process in getting to a derelict freighter. The salvage module will be in a crate somewhere on the freighter so be sure to check every single place you can.

The video is a little long but does show a full walkthrough of a derelict freighter. It they doesn't interest you I can still it up in a few words.
Check everything while avoiding the enemies!
One form of enemies are creatures that emerge from nests. The creatures that'll emerge from the nests aren't particularly difficult to kill on their own, aside from their speed. The real difficulty with them is the quantity. In the beginning I was attempting to kill all their nests and almost died myself. They also don't give you much when you do kill them so in interest of time, and your life, I would suggest avoiding them.
Enemies can also come in the form of a security system on the ship. This one is a lot more unavoidable than the nests so just be careful when attacking them and be sure to keep your weapons fully loaded.
Otherwise you just need to make sure you're checking every storage container, briefcase and locker. It's tedious but hey you already paid a ton of credits to find the freighter so you might as well get everything you can out of it. You'll also want to find all the data devices scattered around the ship. They are pretty easy to spot once you know what they look like.
Speaking of getting everything you can, derelict freighters are also where you'll find freighter salvage modules. Looting through containers is one way to come across them but once you've checked every terminal and returned to the space station you can trade the data you've gathered to the junk dealer for tainted metal as well.
At the end of the video you can see what the modules I got from the junk dealer turned into. Personally I don't think they were worth all the effort that I put into them. Instead I would suggest donating the data to the guild envoy to increase your standing with the race in that system.
Derelict freighters are a tedious but reliable way to get freighter salvage data. This salvage data is what you need to upgrade your freighter making your like in the game significantly easier.
It's finally here! Hyrule Warriors: age of calamity came out today. Did you wonder what happened during those 100 years that link was napping? Get your hands on Hyrule Warriors to see what went down. Not sure about the game? Grab the free demo on the Nintendo eShop and test it out for yourself.
Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.
Looking for an open world game full of quests yet with the options to craft and farm? Yonder might be what you've been waiting for! With its mix of crafting elements to build up the world and exploration you'll find yourself scouring the island to save the inhabitants from the murk that is taking over this island.
Genshin Impact: Gacha gaming that’s… good? I often find myself not knowing quite how to feel about mobile games. While capable of providing cheap thrills and alleviating temporary boredom, they generally don’t possess the sort of staying power more robust console and PC titles do.
Has gaming lost its magic? Are you unable to find a game worth your time? Do you scroll endlessly through your library and waste time watching trailers - but nothing engages you? You might have Gamer's Block! Don't worry though, there's hope for you yet.
The game is a blast to play. I am not one who tends to play these competitive first person shooters but I'm starting to think maybe I should be spending more time playing them. I did get better over the course of playing but still got obliterated each round. Some of that was due to glitching in the game but generally it was just me.
I don't play a lot of competitive first person shooters. Call of Duty specifically I haven't played since high school. That made getting Beta access to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a little nerve wracking. I figured that I should record my first attempt at playing this game so that you can what it's all about
Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great gameplay. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
I bet there is a number of you out there who are going "Finally a third Pikmin!" Well sorry to burst your bubble but the game has actually been out for a long while. Whether you've never played the third game or just haven't touched it in a while the free demo in the Nintendo Store is worth the download!
Although the game came out 9 years ago it still has a lot of playability today. Whether you're just trying to find areas that you've never explored or creating a whole new build opposite or what you normally play there's numerous ways to keep you interested. With the addition of the Amiibo it can be even more exciting.
The game reminds me of a classic arcade side scroller game but with an upgraded 3D depth to the scenery. Flying in a plane (that can also fly underwater?) while shooting the things that come onto the screen to stay alive and hopefully upgrade as you go!
While we are awaiting the sequel in the much beloved “Breath of the Wild” series Nintendo surprised us with a prequel! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you play through the war in the years previous to the adventure we’ve come to love. Get through Hyrule as any of the previous heroes!
Nintendo has adamantly stated that the DS would not be brought to an end because of the Switch. This was hard to believe as the Nintendo Switch is very similar to the DS consoles. Staying true to their word for much longer than anticipated their latest update may bring an end to the DS.
In Control, you take on the character of Jesse Faden, a no-nonsense redhead out to discover the whereabouts of her missing brother. She tracks a lead, or rather her intuition leads her outside the doors of a semi-secret government organization known as the Federal Bureau of Control.
