Hyperdrive is a starship propulsion method.


Hyperdrive is the starship's lightspeed propulsion drive to aid players travel across galaxies. It is also known as warp drive.

Basic hyperdrive has a specific range, which can be improved by the Warp Reactor upgrades (see below). Warp Cells are used to charge this technology.

Game description[]

FTL propulsion drive that allows starships to attain warp speed and travel between neighbouring star systems. User is advised to access Hyperdrive systems through Galactic Map.

How to Obtain[]

While flying in space for the first time, you’ll get a distress signal from another planet. Travel to that planet and find the Beacon, which will give you the coordinates to where the signal is coming from. Travel to that outpost and you’ll meet the alien. You probably won’t understand what they are saying, unless you have found enough Knowledge Stones, but don't worry, if you haven't yet you'll be able to figure out their request... The alien is in bad shape after fighting off the local animals and you are given three choices. Choose to recharge its exosuit with Carbon and heal him. In return the alien will give you the recipe for the Hyperdrive.


Hyperdrive (Atlas) cannot be crafted.

Original formula:

The pre-order starships Alpha Vector and Horizon Omega came equipped with the Hyperdrive to give pre-ordered players a head start whereas the starting ships needed to craft it.
