No Man's Sky: How to Get an Indium Drive

You will need an Indium Drive to get Indium and Activated Indium in No Man's Sky. Here's how to get one.

Indium is an extremely valuable resource in No Man's Sky. Problem is, you'll need to have an Indium Drive to get it, as it's hidden away in blue star systems. Worry not though, as we've collected everything you need to know in this guide on getting your very own Indium Drive. Let's get started.

How to Get an Indium Drive

You'll need to go to The Anomaly to pick up the blueprint for the Indium Drive. Summon The Anomaly by pressing down on the d-pad and then head inside. There's a ship upgrade vendor in the back room, who will sell you the Indium Drive blueprint in exchange for Nanites.

Crafting the Indium Drive

If you want to craft the Indium Drive you'll need the following materials:

  1. Emeril (250)
  2. Wiring Loom (5)

To get Emeril you'll need an Emeril Drive. Head to this guide for more info. To get Wiring Looms just head to a space station and interact with a galactic terminal.
