No Man’s Sky Guide: What Does Flying Through Black Holes Do?

If you open up your Galactic map, you may see there is a Black Hole. Are they worth flying through them or will you die if you get near to it?

Out of curiosity, I decided to go through a black hole and thankfully it didn’t kill me. It pretty much acts like a wormhole as it transports you many light years away from your current location into a new solar system.

Don’t be alarmed if you think No Man’s Sky is frozen when you go through a black hole. The game is just loading as it can take a long time to get you to a new area of the game.

The only thing you need to be aware of by flying through a black hole is that it can potentially place you randomly in the middle of nowhere, and this can be a problem if you are wanting to do missions.

I was lucky because I was already wandering off course, but the black hole steered me to the right direction to the path of the galactic core. The opposite thing might happen if you are already on the path of the galactic core and you can lose your progress by veering off-course.
