No Man's Sky: How to Get the Fearsome Visor

The Fearsome Visor is one of the newest additions to No Man's Sky. Here's how to get the new NMS gear.

No Man's Sky just received a giant content drop with the Fractal Update 4.1. Included in the update are new quests with the Utopia Foundation, a new ship, and the Fearsome Visor, along with quality of life and accessibility adjustments. Here's how to obtain the Fearsome Visor in No Man's Sky.

How to Get the NMS Fearsome Visor

Those that help the Utopia Foundation in the new Utopia Expedition quest line will be awarded the NMS Fearsome Visor appearance customization.

To start the Utopia Experience, you'll need to start a new, single-player game. In Mode Selection, choose "Community Expeditions", which will begin Expedition 9: Utopia.

The Utopian Foundation focuses on settling and rehabilitating Bakkin after it has been left to rot. Their quests have five total phases, with each phase comprised of multiple missions. You'll need to complete Phase 3 to get the Fearsome Visor.
