NieR Automata: All pods - how to unlock? NieR Automata guide, tips

This page of the NieR Automata game guide explains how to unlock all 3 Pods, which are flying robots that follow your character. You will find out where the Pods have been hidden and how you can benefit from owning several Pods.

Using Pods - basic information

As a reminder, Pods are flying robots that follow your character and who can take part in battles and make them easier to win - NieR Automata: All pods - how to unlock? - FAQ - NieR Automata Guide

As a reminder, Pods are flying robots that follow your character and who can take part in battles and make them easier to win. Each of the Pods available in the game can receive two types of commands during battles - you can attack at range (these attacks are different for each Pod) and activate programs, i.e. special, strong abilities.

You can obtain a maximum of 3 different Pods, but they aren't required to complete the main storyline. If you want, you can only use the first Pod, which is available from the start of the game. However, we recommend having several Pods, because you can switch between them to activate their various programs. Each Pod's special attack has its own separate cooldown.

For obtaining all 3 Pods you will receive the bronze trophy Pod Hunter. It is possible to obtain them all while beating the game for the first time, that is while completing Route A.

More information about Pods can be found on the following page: Leveling up your character and Pods.
