The Next update for No Man’s Sky is still very new so it’s possible a more “proper” way of trading items with friends comes later in the update but for now, there’s one simple trick you can do to trade items with your friends.
Although you cannot trade units directly, you can trade items, meaning you can give your friends expensive resources to sell to help them out.
How To Trade Items In No Man’s Sky NextMake sure you join a friends game. You need to progress through the missions until your base is up and running. However, if you started an existing character you can just create the item you need. You must make a Refinery. This special piece of equipment allows you to process raw materials into usable products and substances.
Ignore the fuel and the output, that’s only if you’re actually using the refinery to, well, you know, refine. For this method on How To Trade Items In No Man’s Sky Next, we just need the input section. Simply navigate to the input section and add any item from your inventory. Then close the menu. Your friend can then open the refinery and take the items. Voila.
