Where to find antimatter in No Man’s Sky Next :

→ First method to obtain antimatter and the recipe for the housing :
To get antimatter, advance through history until you get your first hyperdrive. From there, the game will let you know that you will find the answer among the stars, then you just go into space and look for the signals when the game invites you.

Might as well warn you, it’s a bad idea to touch the eggs that are outside the building… No… Really… You’ve been warned.
→ Second method for obtaining antimatter and the recipe for the housing :
If you haven’t followed the story from the beginning by taking over an existing save game, know that you can get antimatter through galactic trading terminals. You will find them in the outposts of the game that are usually located in space stations.
→ Third method using the antimatter recipe :
The third method requires that you have the antimatter recipe on you, we are not talking about the recipe for the container, but the antimatter recipe itself. This recipe can only be obtained when you have made your first warp to a new solar system. This means that you must have gone through one of the two methods above to make a super galactic jump.
