Merit Guide for Void Bastards
The main form of currency in Void Bastards is Merits
, it is used to purchase healing services, use radiation treatments, purchase food, and opening up locked doors or loot crates. Merits is a paper currency and it is found on the starships and spacestations you explore on the Sargasso Nebula. This How to get Merits in Void Bastards will help you to find them.
As you jet between starships in the Sargasso Nebula you will notice that some of the nodes are not starships but bullet crates, food crates and random Merrit prizes which you need to highlight and look under 'Benefits' to determine how many Merits
you will get by going to their location. Merits can also be found hidden on the starships and spacestations you explore. You can quickly identify places where you will find Merits by looking for sparkles that float up from an item. This is particularly useful when the lights are off.
It is important that you try and get as many Merits
as possible as it will make exploring a lot easier for you. Don't spend your Merits unnecessarily, they are best saved for when you are in a tight situation such as needing emergency Fuel
or food from a shop. They are also particularly useful for turning off security elements on tricky starships. In Void Bastards Merits are not needed for crafting and when you die you will lose all the Merits you acquired.
