Where To Find Solanium In No Man's Sky Next
One of the many base related missions in No Man’s Sky Next asks you to collect Solanium. This guide will tell you Where To Find Solanium In No Man’s Sky Next so you can gather up everything you need to complete the base mission and move on to the next one.

The chances of you being near me are astronomical, as such it’s impossible for me to tell you the exact location of a Solanium deposit. However, even No Man’s Sky’s procedural technology follows specific patterns and restrictions, so hopefully I’ll be able to provide enough information to help you track it down.

Typically you will only find Solanium on Scorched Planets. When you scan a planet, you will see if it says it’s scorched or not, they are also usually black or darker in color. I had the best luck finding them in systems orbiting a very large blue star. You should have been forced to create Hazmat Gloves before you got this mission but make sure it’s equipped as you need them before you can gather Solanium.

Solanium is not a resource that you mine, it’s one you collect by holding the button. Similar to Sodium plants. When you reach a planet that contains Solanium, use your visor and scan for the plant type icon. That’s Where To Find Solanium In No Man’s Sky Next.
