I don’t care who you are or where you come from, I think we can all agree that farts will always be funny. Granted, timing is a big factor in that, but you’d be lying if you said you wouldn’t at least crack a smile if you looked up and saw a spaceman riding around on a giant flying fish being propelled by its own gaseous emissions. If you want to be that lucky spaceman, then here’s how to tame the Flying Fart Fish in No Man’s Sky.

The Flying Fart Fish is, well, pretty much exactly what it says on the tin: a large, fish-like creature that soars through the skies thanks to a natural propulsion system powered by its own exceptionally large butt and the interesting gases it produces. Taming these creatures is fairly simple, as they’re not especially bright. The hard part is finding them.

Flying Fart Fish have been seen on planets in the Essientam and Euclid galaxies. To get to these galaxies, you’ll need to find a Portal on another planet and enter the unique glyph codes to get a lock onto them. Of course, you’ll need to learn all of the glyphs by playing the game first, so if you haven’t done that yet, this is a bit of a nonstarter. If you do know all the glyphs, enter these codes into the Portal to get to where you want to be:

Essientam

Euclid

Once you’ve arrived in one of these Galaxies, it shouldn’t take long to find the Flying Fart Fish of your dreams. To tame it, you’ll need to observe it for a while to determine what kind of food it likes so you can concoct some bait. You’ll also need to feed it a Creature Pellet to get some Faecium, a vital bait component. When you’ve fed the fish enough bait to get it to trust you, you can hop on its back and ride it freely around the world. Try to breathe through your mouth, ‘cause things are probably going to get really smelly.
