No Man's Sky Finally Reveals What the Mysterious Quicksilver Currency Is in New Community Event

A new community event nets you some Quicksilver.

No Man's Sky is now offering community events where explorers can earn some Quicksilver, the mysterious new currency introduced in the Next update. Turns out, players can spend Quicksilver on cosmetic items, base decorations, and even emotes.

Starting today, players who log into No Man's Sky will find a radio broadcast waiting for them from Specialist Polo. The alien is reaching out to you with a new community mission which promises a bounty of Quicksilver.

No Mans Sky Quicksilver

If you follow Polo's coordinates and dig for buried technology capsules with everyone else in the galaxy looking to make a little Quicksilver on the side. The modules contain a new resource called Hex Cores, and you'll need 25 of them. Then you can return to the Anomaly and exchange your new bounty for some cool cosmetics.

Items you can purchase include cosmetics like a new helmet, a new emote, and some base building plans for items you can build. We have a full walkthrough on how to complete the community event so check out our No Man's Sky Next Quicksilver guide.
