The world of *No Man’s Sky* hides many secrets and locations to explore. Some of them you can find after solving a puzzle in the Transmission Tower, which is one of the POIs on any planet.

These puzzles throw a bunch of numbers at you that might be confusing at first, so here are all the Transmission Towers puzzles in *NMS* and how to solve them.

## All answers to NMS Transmission Towers

You can find Transmission Towers randomly on any planet or by using a Planetary Chart that leads to the inhabited outpost (red building icon). In the tower, there’s always a terminal with a sequence puzzle.

You have to choose the correct number out of the three options, or you’ll be locked out and won’t be able to get coordinates for a linked point of interest.

Here are **all the Transmission Tower puzzles** we managed to find and their answers:

Sequence | Answer |
---|---|

99 – 92 – 86 – 81 – … | 77 |

5920 – 9205 – 2059- … | 0592 |

2 – 4 – 12 – 48 – 240 – … | 1440 |

17 – 33 – 65 – 129 – … | 257 |

80 – 71 – 63 – 56 – … | 50 |

5040 – 720 – 120 – 24 – … | 6 |

5 – 14 – 41 – 122 – … | 365 |

1 – 5 – 3 – 7 – 5 – 9 – … | 7 |

3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – … | 34 |

56 – 59 – 63 – 68 – 74 – … | 81 |

## How to solve NMS Transmission Towers: Explanation

The solutions for these puzzles are different, but in every case, you have to **choose a number that follows the logic of the sequence**. Below, you can find all the types of puzzles we’ve encountered so far and the solutions behind them.

### Subtract a decreasing number

In this sequence, every number equals the previous entry minus a decreasing number. For example, in the sequence “**99 – 92 – 86 – 81 – …**,” 99-7=92, then 92-6=86, and so on.

### Number combinations

The “**5920 – 9205 – 2059- …**” sequence lists different combinations with the numbers five, nine, two, and zero. If you look at it as a loop of numbers, the order doesn’t change (e.g., two is always after nine), and the answer is simply a number that isn’t yet in the sequence.

### Multiply by an increasing number

This type is similar to the first one, except every next entry is a previous entry multiplied by an increasing number. For example, in sequence “**2 – 4 – 12 – 48 – 240 – …**“, 2×2=4, 4×3=12, which means you have to multiply 12 by four to get the next entry, then multiply the result by five to get the next, and so on.

### Add the last number minus one

To get the next entry in this puzzle, you have to add the last number and subtract one. For example, in the sequence “**17 – 33 – 65 – 129 – …**,” 17+16=33 (where 16=17-1), then 33+32=65 (where 32=33-1), and so on.

### Divide by a decreasing number

Following a similar logic to the rest of the puzzles, to get the next number in this sequence, you have to divide it by a decreasing number. The sequence “**5040 – 720 – 120 – 24 – …**” starts by dividing 5040 by seven to get 720, then dividing 720 by six to get 120, and so on.

### Multiply by a number minus one

In the sequence “**5 – 14 – 41 – 122 – …**,” every following number is the last number multiplied by three minus one. For example, 122=41×3-1, and to find the answer, you have to multiply 122 by three and subtract one.

### Add a number then subtract a number

Sequence “**1 – 5 – 3 – 7 – 5 – 9 – …**” is a bit more complicated. Every entry alternates between two actions: Add four and subtract two. 1+4=5, 5-2=3, and so on throughout the sequence.

### Add the previous number

This one is pretty simple. To get an answer in a sequence like “**3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – …**,” you have to add the previous entry to the last number. In this case, the number 21 is 13+8, and 13 is 8+5. The same goes for the sequence **1 – 3 – 4 – 7 – 11 – 18 – …**

### Add an increasing number

This is also an easy one compared to the rest. In a sequence like “**56 – 59 – 63 – 68 – 74 – …**,” to get the next entry, you add an increasing number. So 56+3=59, 59+4=63, and then to get the next entry, you have to add five to 63.
