How to Get a Quantum Computer & Magnetic Resonator in No Man’s Sky

Hello Games is back yet again with another huge update to No Man’s Sky. The Origins Update includes a heck of a lot which makes planets finally feel more alive as I talked about the other day. But it also simplifies crafting and eliminates some of the less essential items. It also introduces some new crafting items you may need to fix your ship or anything else that’s broken. Today, we’re going to talk about how to get the new Magnetic Resonators and Quantum Computers in No Man’s Sky.

The Easiest Way

There may be multiple ways to obtain these new crafting materials, and you might want to know what those are. We’ll have those for you in a second, but here’s a quick reminder that No Man’s Sky has a system in the game to help you get the things you need.

If a broken ship specifically needs something like a Magnetic Resonator, simply click into the broken slot, hover over the thing you need and pin the item’s details. This will add a quest for the item into your logs. Then just go to your logs, make sure it’s active, and follow the instructions.

Magnetic Resonators

The easiest way to get Magnetic Resonators is by crafting them yourself. Summon the Anomaly, head aboard, and go to the Synthesis Laboratory. There you can purchase it for 250 Nanites. Nice and cheap!

You still need to build it yourself, however, using 40 Magnetized Ferrite and 40 Ionised Cobalt. That’s not super easy to come across and unless you find it in its natural form, you’ll need to run the base materials through a refiner two times.

If you’re feeling lazy, there’s also a chance to get them from Suspicious Goods Packets from the scrap dealer or from some technology merchants for 5,000 Units.


How to Get Quantum Computers

If you haven’t played No Man’s Sky in some time, you’d be forgiven for not understanding how some things have changed. You can no longer simply look up an item’s recipe online and get crafting away, even for some of the more basic valuable products like Herox or Lemmium.

New recipes must be obtained from the Anomaly by accessing the Synthesis Laboratory. You will need Nanites to purchase them, however, with 250 reserved just for the Quantum Computer blueprint specifically. The blueprint will let you build one using one Microprocessor, one Antimatter, and 25 Chromatic Metal. Easy enough to put together!

If there’s anything else you’re struggling to find, just remember the pin details button on whatever you’re looking for! No Man’s Sky will hold your hand through pretty much anything if you ask it to.

Now go find the crafting materials you need so you can get that new S-Class space ship off the ground and flying through the galaxy.
