No Man's Sky PS4 PlayStation 4 1

No Man's Sky is a game all about busy work, but if you can't be arsed with all that incessant toing and froing, then cunning gamers have concocted an exploit that will get you to the centre of the universe much, much, much quicker than you ever imagined. Of course, this could also spoil the game for you, so read on at your own peril.

Essentially, you need high-level items like Atlas Stones and Warp Cells to reach the centre of the universe, and there's a way to duplicate them. All you need to do is put all of the items you want to multiply into your ship's inventory, save, then die. When you respawn, load the save that you made before you died, and your inventory will be replenished, but your grave will still be out in space, enabling you to double down on every item that you need. Rinse and repeat, and you'll have more than enough gear to get you deep into the galaxy in no time.

We're pretty confident that this will be patched before you can blink, but if you're finding the game a bit tedious and are looking for a bit of a jump-start, then this really does work. Will you be taking advantage of this glitch, or are you planning to play purely? Speed up your journey in the comments section below.
