No Man’s Sky Outlaws: How to Get Wingmen

No Man’s Sky’s Outlaws update grants players the option of hiring wingmen to their own Squadron, making space adventure and exploration way more fun than ever before.




The new Outlaws update in No Man’s Sky introduced a handful of new mechanics, mainly the Outlaws system which allows you to create your own Squadron and recruit wingmen to make space exploration a lot more engaging than before.

If you don’t know how to get your own wingmen, then this guide is for you.

How to Get Wingmen in No Man’s Sky: Outlaws

To start recruiting wingmen, the first thing you want to do is to head to your Freighter and go all the way to the Bridge. From there, access the console and look for the Manage Fleet dashboard, access it, and you’ll then be able to see a new option that says “Manage Squadron”.

Obviously, you won’t have any members in the Squadron yet. You first want to unlock the slots for the Squadron pilots. There are a total of 4 slots, each unlockable using Nanites, but the cost will increase every time you unlock a slot. If possible, try to unlock all of them before you start looking for your wingmen.

Once done, you want to board your spaceship and make sure it has a Conflict Scanner and an Economy Scanner installed. With the arrival of the Outlaws update, pirate-controlled systems have been introduced into the game. These are basically what you want to look for.

Open your Galaxy Map, and look for systems that have the words “Pirate Controlled” under the Conflict status. Travel to the system, and once you arrived, look for a nearby freighter and board it. Similar to other freighters, new spaceships will dock every now and then.

What you want to do is wait for a spaceship then land, then speak to its pilot. In the dialogue section, you should be able to see the “Recruit lifeform to squadron” option. When you choose that option, you’ll be able to see the stats of the wingman you’re trying to recruit.

There, you can see the stats of his ship as well as the information of the pilot itself. You’ll then have the option of whether to Recruit or Decline the pilot. If you choose to recruit the pilot, he’ll then be automatically added to your Squadron.

After recruiting enough wingmen, you can then go back to your freighter and access the Manage Squadron option in the Manage Fleet console.

Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide

Shameful display!

Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!

Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms

Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.

While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.

Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.

Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.

Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.

You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.

Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.

Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.

In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.

Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.

Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!
