Getting Frigate Fuel in No Man’s Sky NEXT
The new NEXT update in No Man’s Sky allows players to obtain Freighters and Frigates rather easily at the start of the game. Once you take command of one, you’ll be able to send out your Frigates on expeditions to help gather more resources and units to help you out. However, in order to send them out on expeditions in the first place, you’ll need Frigate fuel.
First off, once you take command of your first Freighter in No Man’s Sky, talking to the captain and building your first fleet command room should give you access to the fuel blueprint automatically. Now, you’ll be able to craft Frigate fuel whenever you want. The ingredients required are Tritium and Di-hydrogen. Tritium can be mined very easily simply by shooting rocks and asteroids in space, while Di-hydrogen can be found in blue crystals on planetary surfaces. Simply head to your inventory menu and craft the fuel once you have the necessary resources.
After that, talk to your expedition manager in the command center, and choose an expedition and the Frigate you want to send. You’ll see the fuel requirement in the bottom right corner. If you have enough Frigate fuel in any of your inventories in No Man’s Sky, you can press and hold the square button to send it out on the expedition. Whether an expedition is a success or a failure, the fuel will be used up, and you’ll need to craft more of it if you want to go out on more expeditions, to make sure you’re always topped up on Tritium and Di-hydrogen.
That’s pretty much all you need to know about crafting and getting Frigate fuel in No Man’s Sky. Be sure to check our wiki for more information on the No Man’s Sky and the new NEXT update.
