Metal elements are one of the eight divisions of the resources in No Man's Sky.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Metal elements are mainly used as an ingredient for crafting other resources in a Refiner. May also be used for crafting various products.

Sources[edit | edit source]

These elements can be found as a primary/secondary element in many minerals. Can also be refined, collected from pirates, or found in Resource Deposits.

Members[edit | edit source]

Known members of the Metal elements family are as follows:

Icon Element Abbrev Description Base value  units
Substance.neutral.common2.png Ferrite Dust Fe An abundant mineral element, found in rock formations and other areas of geological interest. Easily extracted using a Mining Laser. Typically requires processing in a Refiner before use in construction or technology manufacture. 14.0
SUBSTANCE.LAND.3.png Magnetised Ferrite Fe++ Highly processed metal, requiring several stages of processing in a Refiner. Used in the creation of advanced structures and technologies. Avoid ingestion. 82.0
SUBSTANCE.LAND.2.png Pure Ferrite Fe+ Processed metal, free of dust and pebbles. Used to construct a wide variety of structures and technologies. Typically purified from Ferrite dust using a Refiner, but can occasionally be found in large deposits. Collection may require an Advanced Mining Laser. 28.0

Progression[edit | edit source]

The following progression is used for Ferrite refinement via a Refiner. Note that Rusted Metal is not a true Metal element, but part of the Junk sub-category of the Special elements.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

Metal has the fewest elements of all resource divisions.
