You should learn how to return to your ship in Returnal. Doing this will help you to restore and rebuild your lost energy after a run. This will also allow you to save and stock up on your consumables which you can use later on when you’re completing a mission. You can obviously also return to the ship if you die, as the game resets the loop, but then you lose out on all the resources that you have collected till then. So let’s find out how to return to Helios in Returnal.
How to get back to your ship in Returnal
To return to the ship go near the hole in the fuselage of the Helios. Here a ‘Triangle’ button prompt will be visible. Click on the button and Selene will crawl into the ship. Once inside the ship, you will see three doors. Out of these, the door to your right is the cockpit. The door immediately to your left will give you access to a bed where you can rest and gain energy. There is one more door here which gives you access to some sort of computer. This computer is instrumental if you want to learn more about Selene and the Helios. You can also go to the Echoing Ruins with this method by simply interacting with the computer.
You can find the Ship Helios on your map. It is marked by a spaceship logo on the map and can be found at the start of Overgrown ruins. You can even return to your ship after you die in the game, which will happen a lot.
