How To Max Damage on Staff Multitool S Class in No Man's Sky
Hello Games

In No Man's Sky, you will run into various multi-tool devices that can be used for mining, scanning, combat, and other functions. The Staff Multitool is one such multi-tool in the game that has the highest damage bonus, tied with sentinel multitools. Players need to contact the Autophage to obtain the Staff Multitool, who can be reached by triggering the "They Who Returned" mission.

Once they obtain it, the next step is to maximize its damage to get the most out of it. If you're struggling to do it, here's a guide to maximizing the damage output of their Staff Multitool S Class in No Man's Sky.

How To Maximize Damage on Staff Multitool S Class in No Man's Sky

Follow these steps to unlock the maximum damage on Staff Multitool S Class in No Man's Sky:

Step 1: Unlock the Anomaly

To unlock the Anomaly in No Man's Sky, players need to follow the main quests until they receive a message from Nada, who summons them to the Space Anomaly

Step 2: Visit the Anomaly and Research Upgrade Room

Players can summon the Anomaly at any time, in any system, except on planets or during combat, by opening the quick menu (down arrow key on console) and selecting "summon space anomaly". Once the Anomaly has been summoned, players can enter it and explore it to their heart's content.

Step 3: Choose Neutron Cannon Weapon

In the Research Upgrade Room, you will find various upgrade options for the Multitool. We recommend choosing the Neutron Cannon weapon, so make sure you have the Neutron Cannon unlocked.

Step 4: Unlock the P Field for Neutron Cannon

The P Field Compressor is an upgrade that can be installed on the Neutron Cannon to increase its damage output. Players can obtain the P Field Compressor blueprint from the Multi-Tool Upgrades vendor in The Anomaly.

Step 5: Find S-Class Neutron Cannon Upgrade

The Multi-Tool Upgrades vendor in The Anomaly offers a variety of upgrades, including S-Class Neutron Cannon modules. Players can regularly check the vendor's inventory to see if an S-Class Neutron Cannon upgrade is available.

Step 6: Buy 20-30 Neutron Cannon Upgrades

To maximize the damage, you will need to buy a significant number of the same upgrade modules. We suggest acquiring between 20 to 30 of these modules, or more if necessary, to get the best stats.

Step 7: Install Neutron Cannon Upgrades and add P Field

After installing three S-Class Neutron Cannon upgrade modules, check their stats. You are looking for the following:

  • Charging Speed: 50 (max)
  • Damage: 13-14
  • Ion Sphere Speed: 12-13

Select the best three modules that meet these criteria.

Step 9: Assemble the Upgrades

Delete the other upgrade modules you don't need, and place the selected three S-Class Neutron Cannon upgrade modules into the three supercharged slots on your Multitool.

Step 10: Enjoy the High Damage Output

Your Staff Multitool should now have a significantly increased damage output, i.e. over 150,000. This setup turns the Neutron Cannon into a powerful weapon.
