Making Antimatter and Warp Cells in No Man’s Sky NEXT
No Man’s Sky has just gotten its huge NEXT update, which adds proper multiplayer, improved base-building mechanics, as well as several other tweaks and changes to streamline the experience a little, and provide more depth to it. One of the biggest changes comes with how Antimatter and Warp Cells are crafted in the game. If you’ve played the game prior to the NEXT update, you probably already know that Antimatter is used to create Warp Cells, which are essential for jumping between star systems in the game.
If you started a fresh game, the tutorial will walk you through the entire process. However, if you started on an old save, you might feel a little lost, so we’re here to help out. First off, Warp Cells can only be crafted with Antimatter and a new item called Antimatter Housing.
The Housing is pretty easy to craft, and you only need Oxygen and Ferrite Dust for that. Ferrite Dust can be mined from rocks all over the planetary surface, while Oxygen can be harvested from plants; just use your scanner to locate them easily. The Antimatter is a little trickier, as you’ll need Chromatic Metal and Condensed Carbon. Chromatic Metal can be crafted with a refiner, along with any of the following metals: Cadmium, Copper, Emeril, and Iridium. Condensed Carbon can also be crafted with the refiner, and all you have to do is fill it up with Carbon, which is easy to find as well. Once you have your materials in the refiner, remember to power it up with Carbon.
After that, just go to your inventory and craft the Warp Cells like you normally would. Be sure to check our wiki for more information on No Man’s Sky and the NEXT update.
