No Man's Sky Ship Type Tier List

S – Tier

  • Exotic Ships – This type of ship can only come in S-Class and is overall a balanced ship. Despite it being balanced all of its stats are higher than average and is usually the safe pick for any playstyle.
  • Sentinel Ships – The great thing about these ships is that you can find them if you know the coordinates. Not only that but they require little to no repair. This ship class has high damage and maneuverability bonuses but little Hyperdrive bonus.

SIDE NOTE: If you know the coordinates of the Sentinel Ships you can just claim them as your own. So, here’s a guide on the 3 best Sentinel S-class ships in the game and their locations!

A – Tier

  • Fighter Ships – This ship class doesn’t have any hyperdrive bonus but it has the highest damage bonus. The shields and maneuverability are usually average, a great pick to pick fights with.
  • Solar Ship – This ship type has the average bonuses overall but has the bonus of having the fastest pulse drive speed. Not only that but it recharges the launch system automatically. This means one less thing to manage.

B – Tier

  • Explorer Ship – This ship type has no bonus to damage but has the highest bonus to hyperdrives. Not only that but it has an average shield and maneuverability. If you just want to explore and run away from fights then you can do both.

C – Tier

  • Hauler Ships – You might think that Haulers don’t get any bonuses besides cargo. They have the largest cargo capacity in the game but also have the highest shield bonuses. Not only that but it has average hyperdrive bonuses as well.

D – Tier

  • Shuttle Ships – The cheapest class to buy and it has lower overall bonuses to every field. There’s no reason you’ll want to buy one ship in this class unless it’s for the looks.
