Abandoned machinery on Avetlogda Suur SD575

Damaged Machinery is an artificial resource.


Damaged Machinery can be found in various locations in No Man's Sky. These mechanical pods are often located near Crashed Ships, Crashed Freighters, and Abandoned Buildings.

They are also commonly found scattered around the planet surface. If you look through your Analysis Visor, they will show up on your Heads-Up Display with an icon shaped like a blue cog. You can also spot them by their blue glow and the dark smoke spiraling into the air. Note that fixing them removes the black smoke.


Repaired Damaged Machinery will contain this loot-table regardless of component type and will pull from it once repaired:

Item Quantity Chance
Nanite Clusters 25-34 82%
Starship Launch Fuel 1 10%
Upgrade Module 1 4%


Damaged Machinery has one, randomly chosen Damaged Component which need to repaired.
