Multi-tool

A Multi-tool is a hand-held tool and weapon in No Man's Sky. It can be used to scan, gather resources, and attack foes. The multi-tool can be upgraded with blueprints found in many buildings.

The multi-tool has four areas of specification: laser, projectile, grenade, and scan.

Purchasing a new multi-tool

There are multiple multi-tools that can be obtained from different species, the Gek, Korvax, Vy'keen and the Sentinel. The multi-tools will come with an array of functions and a varying amount of slots.

They can be found in large red containers at outposts, in some shipwreck terminals, from monoliths and aliens the character has helped.

Laser

The laser, also called a Mining Beam, is used for mining resources on planets and, with upgrades, can be used as a weapon. The device is powered by isotope elements such as Carbon, Plutonium, and Thamium9. Mining Beam technologies allow faster mining, reduced cool-down times, and increased yield.

Laser notes
  1. The Railshot description text incorrectly displays "Boltcaster" as the affected weapon type. It should read "Mining Beam."


Projectile

The Boltcaster is a combat-focused projectile weapon. The device is powered by isotope elements such as Carbon. Upgrades to the Boltcaster increase damage, ammo clip capacity, improve rate-of-fire, reduce reload times, reduce recoil and give it other abilities.

Grenade

The Plasma Launcher is a grenade launcher that can be used for land excavation. The device is powered by isotope elements such as Carbon.

Scan

The scan feature of the multi-tool aids in exploring. There are two scanning devices for the multi-tool, the Scanner, which is a topographical surveyor that highlights local flora and resources, and the Analysis Visor, or binoculars, which allows the character to zoom in on distant objects, tag and identify planetary creatures and points of interest.
