X4 Foundations: How to Make Money

Running a space fleet isn’t cheap in X4: Foundations. This guide will help you get money to fund your space voyages in the game.




There are many ways to get money in the space simulation game X4: Foundations. Be it mining, salvaging, or even piracy. This guide will cover a few of the easiest and best ways to make money in the game.

How to Make Money in X4 Foundations

There are many ways to get Credits in X4: Foundations. We’ll go over some different methods of making money. Which one works best is ultimately down to you.

Find Abandoned Ships

There are many abandoned ships out in space. These can be found by exploring but you might also be notified of them directly at times. The thing is, you can reclaim these ships as your own. If you manage it, you can then sell the ship for a huge profit. This is particularly good at the start since you can use the money to fund your own fleet.

Set your Miners to go Automining

Once you have enough funds, you can start to get Miner ships. These ships, as their name indicates, will mine for resources. This is a pretty easy way to get money, as it can be automated with Automine. To set a Miner to Automine go to the Property Owned tab in map view. Select your mining vessel, right-click and select Information.

You’ll see a Behavior section here. You’ll want to set default behavior to Automine. You can set up to 3 different wares to mine. Silicon is a really good one, so you can’t go wrong with that one. The other 2 are up to you, depending on what’s available in the sectors you have found.

You’ll also want to set the miners to escape when attacked and harassed by pirates. With that done, you can pretty much ignore the miners as they earn you money over time without you doing much. Miners will even automatically trade what they find to get you money. This will also boost your reputation with other factions in the sectors you send the miners to.

Do Story Missions

Pretty simple, but story missions have good rewards. If you feel capable of handling them, you should do so as soon as you can. While this might not necessarily get you money always, it will get you ships and other rewards that can help you make money. If not, they’ll at least help you save what money you do have.

Sell Unwated Ships

This is a small tip, but one to keep in mind. If you have any ships you simply have no use for anymore, sell them at scrapyards. Why hold on to ships you don’t need when you could have money instead, right?


If you simply can’t help it, piracy is a good way to earn money too. Get a freighter and load it with marines. Scan resupply ships and other fighters until you find one with a lower boarding strength than your own. Then sneak up on it and order your marines to board it. They’ll capture the ship for you. Now you can either sell it for quick profits or add it to your own fleet. Not the nicest way to get money, but it works.

Fastest Easy Ways To Unlock BUSO HAKI V3 In Pixel Piece

Make it fast and easy by reading this guide!

Doben Villaruz



Some of us who enjoy playing video games are also fans of anime like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece, and they’re very popular right now because they not only have a TV show but are also featured in various games using mods and occasionally fan-made games. I know that some of you haven’t yet acquired the Buso Haki, but if you want to do so much faster than everyone else, then this guide is just for you.

Buso Haki V3

For those who are new to the game and are unaware of this process, you must wait until nighttime (in-game) because you’ll be entering the Vaill Island, where you must first reach Level 70+ because you won’t likely survive if you don’t level up. You’ll also need $5000 in order to activate a quest from an NPC in that island.

So when you get to Valli Island, you’ll run into an NPC wearing a hat who will give you a mission that requires you to pay $5000. Once you do so, a new objective with the words “Battle 4 Ancient Gorilla of 0/3” appears up on the bottom right of your screen. At that point, you must defeat the Gorilla Boss.

The boss gorilla must be found and defeated three times; he deals a lot of damage when he pounds the ground and hits you with his shockwave fist, thus having teammates who are at the same level as you or who are strong enough to defeat the gorilla will actually speed up the battle.

It is actually recommended to find the respawn point every so often to make your life easier. When you get to the part where the gorilla is, you need to do this so that when you die, you won’t have to go to a random island and it will be a hassle to navigate through the world again just to find one island and beat the Gorilla boss.

The Quest pop-up that was mentioned to you earlier on screen states that you should defeat the Gorilla boss at least three times. Once you defeat the Gorilla boss, you will level up, receive an item called “Soul of Armament,” and learn the skill Armament Haki.

When the Gorilla boss dies, it will take some time for him to respawn, and you will need to defeat him again until you finally defeat him on the third try.

Now that we have defeated the gorilla boss, let’s discuss the advantages of wearing these hakis. The Haki V1 will increase your melee/sword M1 damage by +6 and give you the ability to hit Logia users.

However, 50,000 Haki Mastery points are required to upgrade your Haki to V2. What does V2 offer in terms of benefits? You receive +9 more melee/sword damage than the Haki V1 with it.

And ultimately, of course, in order to truly unlock Buso Haki V3, you actually need 200,000 Haki Mastery points. The advantages of possessing this are that it increases your melee/sword damage by +14 compared to Haki V2, making it currently the strongest in the game.

It takes a lot of grinding to get to the 200,000 Haki point need, but there is an easier way to farm the points for V3. To do this, make sure you have reached Level 100; if not, continuing farming in the world you are currently in until you are powerful enough to reach the island where we’re going to farm the points faster.

You must travel to Syrup Island, which is between Vaill Island’s northeast and east. Once there, you’ll see a lot of players grinding against NPCs to gain Haki Mastery points more quickly.

You may have heard that you should grind straight to Arlo Park, but doing so will only slow you down because the NPCs there are much tougher than those in Syrup Island.

However, if you want to go for it and you have pals who can fight with the NPCs in Arlo Park, feel free to do so.


I hope this was of some help. A tremendous thank you to Nikkolapz for going over each of these details and explaining them so thoroughly. For better understanding check out his video:
