Similar to other survival games, No Man's Sky allows you to tame a wide variety of creatures and befriend them using a special food item called Creature Pellets. The feature was introduced back in the Beyond update, which enables players to craft bait and other items for the different animals they may come across during their journeys.

However, you can't craft Creature Pellets right away as the game requires you to unlock its recipe first. After that, you will need to collect a certain set of ingredients in order to forge Creature Pellets in No Man's Sky. So without any further delay, let's dive into the details.

Once you've crafted Creature Pellets, it's time to start feeding the creatures you encounter. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  1. Approach the animal you wish to feed slowly and carefully. Some animals may be skittish and run away if you approach them too quickly.
  2. Once you're close enough, select the Creature Pellets from your inventory and hold down the button to feed the animal.
  3. Be patient. Some animals may take a while to warm up to you and may not immediately accept the food.
  4. Don't overfeed the animals. While they may seem hungry, feeding them too much can negatively affect their health.
