To earn Twitch Drops in No Man’s Sky, you need to first link your PlayStation, Steam, or Xbox account to your Twitch account and then watch No Man’s Sky drops enabled streams for a set amount of time. If you haven’t already done so, you’ll need to follow the steps below to link your Twitch account to the console you play No Man’s Sky on. For example, as a PS5 user, you would do the following:

  • Sign in to Twitch or create an account
    • Open the settings menu
    • Click on the option for Users and Accounts
  • Select to link Twitch and follow the steps on your console to link your accounts

Once you’re good and linked up, you need to head to Twitch to watch No Man’s Sky drops enabled streams to earn those Twitch Drops. Twitch should let you know if the stream you’re watching is Drops Enabled or not. Alternatively, head to the official No Man’s Sky website which features a link to Drops Enabled streams you can watch. The latest patch notes for the last major update always outline the latest Twitch Drops schedule. Twitch will let you know when you’ve earned a reward (use the Twitch Drops Inventory page to check your unlocking progress). Once you have earned a reward, you need to claim it to unlock it in-game.

To claim Twitch Drops in No Man’s Sky, you need to summon and board the Anomaly and head to the Quicksilver store after first claiming them on Twitch. Do this once you have earned the Twitch Drops by watching drops-enabled streams. Log out of the game and back in if you don’t see your Twitch Drops in the Quicksilver store. The longer you watch the certified Twitch streams, the better your rewards will be in-game. Be warned though, that you need to grab your unlocked Twitch Drops in-game within 24 hours of claiming the rewards on Twitch.
