Twitch Drops

Earn rewards by watching Twitch

Get started

To celebrate the launch of the latest OUTLAWS update and the "Blighted" expedition, we are launching our third Twitch Drops event for the long Easter weekend. Twitch Drops are free items awarded to players for watching selected streams on Twitch.tv.

Simply link your Steam, PlayStation or Xbox account to your Twitch account using the links below then sit back and enjoy any of the No Man’s Sky streamers with Drops Enabled from Thursday April 14th to Monday April 18th. See below for more details.

Unlocked rewards should be claimed on Twitch within 24 hours. They can then be found in-game in the Quicksilver store aboard the Space Anomaly, which is summonable on your first sojourn into space after you have established your first base.

FAQs

What are Twitch Drops?

Twitch Drops are rewards given to people who tune in to special Twitch streams. By linking your Twitch account and watching the Drops Enabled streamers during a given timeframe, you will be awarded with an in-game cosmetic item!

When and how will I receive my in-game items?

You will receive a notification on Twitch when you have been awarded the items. Once awarded, you will have to claim the reward within Twitch. You will then need to claim the item in-game from the Quicksilver Synthesis Companion in the Space Anomaly (The Space Anomaly is summonable on your next journey into space after establishing your first planetary base.) If you are already logged in to the game, you’ll need to log out and log back in.

Which streams do I need to watch to get drops?

All No Man’s Sky streams with the Drops Enabled tag will count towards earning drops. All active campaigns and their conditions can always be seen on this Twitch page.

Is there any way to check my progress towards the next drop?

You can track your progress on the Twitch Drops Inventory page.

Can I earn drops faster or more often by watching more than one channel at a time?

No, you will only be eligible to receive a drop for one active channel at a time. Watching more than one channel simultaneously will not result in more drops.

How long does it take for drops to show up in my game inventory?

Your reward should be redeemable in-game as soon as you have claimed it (by pressing the Claim button). You will receive a notification on Twitch when you have been awarded the items. Once awarded, you will need to claim the items within 24 hours of unlocking them to ensure you receive them. If the item does not show up after 30 minutes then your game account may not have been linked to your Twitch account when you claimed the drop. You can link your accounts on the top of this page. You will need to own No Man’s Sky on Steam, PlayStation or Xbox in order to receive the items. Xbox Game Pass subscribers are also eligible to receive rewards.

Do I need Twitch Prime to be eligible?

No, you will just need a Twitch account and a Steam, PlayStation or Xbox account that has No Man’s Sky in its library.

I no longer have access to the Twitch account I linked my game account to and want to link a new one. What do I do?

You can unlink your old Twitch account by signing in with Steam, PlayStation or Xbox on this page and then clicking the Unlink Account button. Then you will be able to link your accounts normally again.

What happens if I unlink my account?

If you unlink your Twitch account from your Steam, PlayStation or Xbox accounts then you won’t be able to earn any new drops, but you will retain the drops you have already earned. You can re-link your accounts at any time by visiting this page.

I haven't bought No Man’s Sky yet but I claimed some drops on Twitch. Will I still be able to get the drops in my game account later?

Yes, as long as you have claimed the drops on Twitch, you will be able to get them when you purchase No Man’s Sky later. However, they will not automatically appear in your game inventory. You will need to make sure your account is linked on this page and then follow the instructions above to claim them in-game.

I didn’t receive my item, where can I go for support?

If you do not receive your item within 72 hours, please visit the No Man’s Sky support site and log a ticket with our support team.

Where can I find out more?
