Once you’ve claimed it as your own, you’ll be able to use the powered suit to explore the galaxy with a number of unique perks. The Exocraft, known more formally as the Minotaur, provides resistance to heat, radiation, and all other dangerous effects. It can also be used to mine for resources, making it an invaluable tool when it comes to exploration.

More than these, the new Exocraft also provides vastly increased mobility. Thanks to its jetpack, the Minotaur can jump across great distances and even glide across a planet’s surface. It also comes equipped with a laser that can be upgraded to the Terrain Manipulator, allowing it to blast straight through a planet’s surface.

On top of all these benefits, the Minotaur also has a few customizable options. The aforementioned Terrain Manipulator is one available upgrade, and a number of decals are available. You can also build the Orbital Exocraft Materialiser in order to summon the Minotaur in any star system where you’ve got a freighter.

To get the new Minotaur mech in No Man’s Sky, purchase and craft the Minotaur Geobay. You’ll be gliding and sliding around planets before you know it. Best of all, with the right upgrades, you won’t have to leave your new Exocraft in order to mine for valuable resources.
