No Man’s Sky Thamium9 Farming Guide to help you farm this rare element used in recharging mining equipment, weapons, pulse engine and life support system.

Thamnium9, an isotope element, plays a huge part in the player’s journey as they progress through No Man’s Sky. The element is used for pretty much every basic need including recharging mining equipment, weapons, pulse engine and life support system.

It is also a key ingredient for crafting of Warp Cells that allow players to perform Hyperjumps in order to reach the center of the galaxy much faster.

No Man’s Sky Thamium9 Farming Locations

While Thamium9 is a fairly common element, there are some useful tips that can help players farm it in huge amounts in a very small time period, without much hassle.

The isotope element can be found on certain planets with red plants on them. These plants have unique red bulbs and coral like features. Interacting with each plant grants players around 10-20 Thamium9.

The Scanner can also be used to easily identify and mark the plants. However, since the game is procedurally generated, it might be difficult to find a planet densely populated with such plants so this method might not be the best way to farm.

By far the easiest method to farm Thamium9 is asteroid mining. All players have to do is just fly up to space and look for asteroid belts floating around planets. Simply shooting the rocks there with the ship’s blasters will yield players hundreds of Thamium9 with the destruction of just one rock.

Alternatively, if players are bored of shooting at rocks, they can simply go and trade with NPCs. Players have to simply go and dock their ship to a Space Station.

After a few minutes, an NPC ship will also dock. Interacting with the pilot of that ship will open up a trade screen from where players can buy or sell Thamium9 in exchange for credits.

This is all we have on our No Man’s Sky Thamium9 Farming Guide. If there is something else you would like to add, let us know in the comments section below!
