Harvesting from Planets

Starfield's universe boasts over 1,000 planets, each harboring valuable resources. Among these celestial bodies, Argon can be found on approximately 240 planets. To streamline your search, here are notable planets where Argon is frequently discovered:

  • Alpha Centauri: Jamison, Chawla

  • Narion: Kreet, Vectera

While these planets are easily accessible, starting with Jamison in the Alpha Centauri star system is recommended for newcomers. It's one of the first planets you'll encounter in your Starfield journey, eliminating the need for extensive travel.

To efficiently harvest Argon from these planets, follow these steps:

  1. Use your hand scanner to locate Argon deposits.

  2. Land your ship near the deposit you've found.

  3. Utilize a Cutter or Argon extractor to extract the Argon.

Take caution as Argon is primarily in gaseous form and can be toxic. Maintain a safe distance while using tools like Cutters.
