In No Man's Sky, there are various resources and materials you'll encounter across space. You'll find some of them in abundance, while others can be harder to get your hands on. Here, we'll let you know where to find No Man's Sky Tritium.

Fortunately, Tritium is a useful resource that can be found amongst the stars with ease. It's classed as one of the exotic elements within the game and is one of the main ingredients required for crafting Freighter related products or for fuelling the Pulse Engine.

With No Man's Sky available on the Nintendo Switch, check out some material guides to help as you traverse the galaxy on a new platform - here's where to find Cadmium and Paraffinium, and how to increase your ship's storage.

Fortunately, Tritium is rather easy to get your hands on. There are two ways to get it, and two forms it can come in. First, you can farm for Tritium whenever you take to the skies by shooting Asteroids. Secondly, you can simply purchase the exotic element from the Galactic Trade Terminal of some Space Stations.

Farming asteroids in an interstellar system is never a waste of time. Not only will you easily get your hands on Tritium, or a Tritium Hypercluster (Tritium in a crystallised form), but you can also collect Gold, Silver, and Platinum. These resources are good to sell off and make money, all while you farm for Tritium simultaneously. Also, by cracking open a Tritium Hypercluster, you will get anywhere between 61-190 Tritium and 1 Antimatter. Antimatter can be tricky to get your hands on, so this curiosity will prove extra useful.

As for Galactic Trade Terminals, only some Space Stations will sell Tritium. It's completely up to chance whether the one you visit will have it for sale or not. Luckily, though, if the terminal isn't selling Tritium, all you need to do is leave the Space Station to find some asteroids to blast.

Getting your Exosuit's storage slots packed with Tritium is as simple as that, and the resource can always be gathered without much trouble as you travel from A to B in No Man's Sky.
