No Man's Sky Omega: How To Get S-Class Pirate Freighter & Free Upgrade Guide

In No Man’s Sky, you will be exploring many different areas and planets in different galaxies. This is why having a Freighter is very important. A Freighter is a massive starship that lets you travel freely between areas and also acts as a huge inventory where you can save your stuff added in the Omega Update.

As you upgrade it, you will be able to unlock special perks that let you move further distances. Apart from upgrading, rarity also benefits you greatly with the rarest version of the Freighters being the S Class. In this guide, we will show you how to get an S-Class Pirate Freighter in No Man’s Sky Omega.

Each type of freighter in the game has a different rating: C, B, A, or S. Higher-class freighters may have higher slot counts and better hyperdrive and fleet coordination modifiers.

The reason why it is called an S-Class Pirate Freighter is because you will be finding the Freighter in the Pirate System. This place has a higher chance of spawning the S-Class Freighters. The Pirate Dreadnought is a new Freighter that players can find in the Omega Update.

Keep in mind that the S-Class Pirate Freighter is very rare due to it being the S Rarity. This means that it may take you a while to attempt to spawn it multiple times.

SIDE NOTE: We have a complete guide which covers everything you’ll need to know about the Omega Update of NMS! Make sure to check it out for more valuable info.

Getting The Pirate Freighter To Spawn

First, make sure that you have claimed the free Freighter that the game gave you. The first Freighter that you rescue from pirates is offered for free. If you haven’t claimed it, subsequent ones will still be free until you claim one.

If you’ve already had a Freighter, make sure you remove all of the items on it before you start. Make sure you do this so you do not lose the item.

The best place to get an S-Class Pirate Freighter is in the Pirate System. The other systems have a 1% to 3% chance of spawning, while the Pirate System has a 5% drop rate for S-Classes.

To make sure that you do not accidentally spawn the Pirate Freighter, it is best that you go into Creative Mode and teleport all the way to the Pirate System. After you’ve arrived at the station, switch back and go to Normal Mode.

After you’ve done all that, remember to get out of your ship and do the Autosave. Then, go to the Galactic map and enter another Pirate System. Make sure that you choose the one with the race that you want. For example, if you need a Korvax Race, you’ll want to find the right system that has it.

If you do not manage to get the S-Class Pirate Freighter yet, jump to another planet with the same race. Then, once you have two planets, you can just jump back and forth until it works. Keep in mind that you’ll want to do this every 3 hours since there is a cooldown timer.

Beating The Pirate Freighter

Once you’ve found the Freighter Dreadnought, you’ll want to attack the engines first. These Engines are located next to one another and there are around 4 engines that you’ll want to break. After you’ve destroyed them, you’ll want to attack the turrets.

Next, you’ll want to search for the Anti-Freighter Cannons and destroy them. Keep in mind that these laser turrets can deal damage to your ship, so be careful as you destroy them.

Usually, there will be around two to three turrets on the ship. After you’ve destroyed all of those, fly to the top and you will find the last turret to destroy.

After that, you’ll be able to enter the Freighter and take control of it. In the inspection menu to the left of your screen, you will be able to see the Race as well as the Class of the Freighter.

In the image down below, you will be able to see that the Freighter is of the C Class. However, you’ll want to find an S-Class Pirate Freighter, so you’ll want to reset and try again.

To do this, simply go to your menu and see the Save Data section. Then, search for Reload Restore Point. This will reset your progress and let you try again.

Keep repeating the steps until you eventually get an S-Class Ship. You can also go with an A-Class Freighter if you also want to have it.
