Sentinel Interceptor ships were added to No Man’s Sky with the Interceptor update. These ships are made from salvaged Sentinel technology and offer a unique spaceflight experience. The cockpit fades out to reveal its surroundings, and these ships often have no parts to repair once unlocked, making them much easier to navigate. This guide explains how to find a Sentinel Interceptor ship so you don’t get stuck in space.

Once you arrive on a corrupted planet, there is three ways to find a Sentinel Interceptor ship. The easiest thing to do is shoot the space station in this system, shoot down every wave of attacking Sentinel Interceptors and Destroy the Sentry Capital Ship.. This will give you the coordinates of a Sentinel Interceptor ship that has crashed.

Alternatively, you can fly to the Corrupted Planet and attack corrupted sentinels. Once the last wave is destroyed, you will get a free scan. This will reveal the location of a Sentry Interceptor ship, but the location will be called Dissonant Peak. Follow it and you will find your ship. There is also a chance that Large Corrupted Quadruped Sentinels will drop a echo detector it will take you to a ship, but it’s a rare drop. Once you find your new ship, you need to repair it.

You can only get Inverted Mirrors from Dissonance Resonators. These are also scattered around corrupted planets; you can track them using your scanner. There’s usually at least one near you anywhere on a Corrupted Planet, if not two. All you have to do is destroy the machine to get the mirror reversed. However, Corrupt Sentinels will attack when you attack, so be prepared for the fight.

Interact with the Hyaline Brain you got from the crashed Sentinel Interceptor ship and you’ll get a slot for a Monolith. When you interact with the Monolith, it repairs the Hyaline Brain, transforming it into a Harmonic Brain.

Bring all of these items to the crashed Sentinel interceptor ship and it will be ready to claim it. Some of these ships have dozens of slots available, so they are well worth your time. There are a few variations to find, all of which have a distinct Sentinel style.
