How to Get New Multi-tools – No Man’s Sky
Multi-tools are very important in No Man’s Sky. They serve as your mining tools, your weapons, and your means of scanning the environment. The one you start out with is capable of getting the basic job done, but its lack of a large number of slots means you’ll want to trade it in for something better sooner rather than later. Thankfully, there’s a way to do just that, but you have to know what you’re looking for.
New Multi-tools are encountered in the world either in Trading Posts or Bases. You can also sometimes find them in Space Stations as well, in the room where the Galactic Market terminal is located. You will find the Multi-tool inside of a case that looks like this:
The case will open when you approach and reveal a random Multi-tool. You now have the option to pay a sum of Units to trade to the one you’ve found, or you can just keep yours. If you choose to trade, you cannot trade back. Your current Multi-tool will disappear forever.
A good idea before exchanging is to dismantle all of the upgrades that you currently have, so you can use the materials to make new ones. Once that’s done, go ahead and exchange and enjoy your new weapon.
