Chances are, if you’re going for No Man’s Sky’s Platinum Trophy – or even if you’ve just blasted off into space for the first time – you’ll be at least somewhat familiar with the concept of Journey Milestones in No Man’s Sky.
Acting as a form of in-game achievement tracker, Milestones will be triggered for doing just about any activity for a long enough period of time, be it shooting up starships or hunkering down on an inhospitable planet – and achieving a certain amount is also a necessary part of the Atlas Path. Right here, we’ll explain what you need to do for every Journey Milestone in the game, as well as offering tips for reaching the maximum Milestones and as highlighting the quickest Milestones to achieve if you’re running a little behind in your quest along the Atlas Path.
There are nine Milestone categories in total, each having ten levels within it, whilst the top-level Milestone for each category will award you a gold PlayStation Trophy if you’re on PS4 – which is a pretty generous payoff. As you’ll earn every other Milestone along the way by obtaining these nine maximum-level ones, we’ve left those out and gone straight to the top.
