How to Get NMS Inverted Mirrors

To get an Inverted Mirror in NMS, or No Man’s Sky, you first need to know where you can find their locations. Well, they spawn on corrupted planets, which is to say, planets that Corrupted Sentinels have taken over. You can locate these manually, as well as by using the Dreadnought AI Fragment. As you explore the planet, you need to keep an eye out for large machines that resemble really big drills. Destroying these drills is what rewards you with Inverted Mirrors. Blow them up any way you see fit, but do keep in mind that the Sentinels won’t be too happy and will come for you.

With all that said, there are some glitches you might run into. For one, getting Inverted Mirrors in the mountains seem to be bugged and can’t be picked up. Also, going back to Sentinel planets that you’ve already explored may become glitch-galore, too. Best go to unknown worlds instead.

How to Farm NMS Inverted Mirrors

Now that we know where to find the locations of an NMS Inverted Mirror (well, many Mirrors) and broadly how to get them in No Man’s Sky, here’s a tip on how to farm them most efficiently. Once you get to a Sentinel-infested planet, fly around until you find the Sentinel Tower. Destroying it will shut down all Sentinel activity except for the drills that contain the Mirrors. That way, you can just go around blowing up drills at your leisure without any reinforcements arriving. This method can net you somewhere in the neighborhood of fifty Inverted Mirrors in about half an hour, depending on the planet.
