Gathering resources is an essential part of Starfield, as they're a common requirement for obtaining weapon mods and building planetary outposts. However, I found myself not being able to find certain elements or needed them in a hurry, being too impatient to mine them. Resource vendors have proved invaluable on such occasions, as they carry some of the most sought-after elements in Starfield. In this guide, I've made a list of all resource vendors in Starfield and their locations.
Where to find resource vendors in Starfield
You can find resource vendors on almost all major hub worlds in Starfield. I have compiled a table of their stores and locations based on the planet below.
|New Atlantis||Spaceport District|
|Volii Alpha||Neon Core|
Volii Alpha's entrance
You can use any of the vendors listed above if you find yourself in a pinch and quickly need some hard-to-obtain resources. Certain resources, like polymer, are impossible to obtain by mining, making them especially difficult to find outside of purchasing them. Vendors like Jemison Mercantile are invaluable in that regard, as they often store other rare commodities, like digipicks, which are notoriously hard to find in Starfield.
If you're having difficulty transporting more significant amounts of resources from a vendor to your starship due to being over-encumbered, remember you can take one or more companions with you for additional weight-carrying capacity. I find this solution to be both effective and satisfying, especially when using companions you're finding annoying.
