A Starfield adhesive farm is something valuable for crafters to know about. Adhesives are required for creating many objects, particularly outpost modules as well as mod upgrades for weapons and the space suit. There are many ways to obtain adhesive and other crafting materials, with some methods that require more time or investment than others. Here are the best ways to get adhesive in Starfield, including the locations, vendors, and planets that have a good chance of obtaining this popular resource.
Best Starfield adhesive farm methods
The following are the best ways to farm adhesive:
- Purchase adhesive from vendors – There are two vendors in particular that carry a lot of adhesive: Jae Montreal at New Homestead on Titan, one of Jupiter’s moons in the Sol system; and Clint de Havin at Clint’s Collectibles on Gagarin in the Alpha Centuari system. These vendors should have more than 10 adhesives for sale, and you can use the vendor restock trick to make them restock their wares for as many adhesives as you need.
- Kill creatures for adhesive – Garmin in the Alpha Centauri system and Delta Pavonis in the Magnar system are two planets that have a good chance of having fauna or flora that drop adhesives. We say “should” because there is an element of RNG. At any rate, any planet with the Herding Brainsprout Grazer should have adhesive.
- Extract adhesive from Sweetwater Cactus – This is a slower process, but if you find a planet with Sweetwater Cactus (like Gagarin, actually), you can scan the cactus and then build a greenhouse module at an outpost on the planet. This requires having at least one rank in Botany and Outpost Engineering. By hooking water to the greenhouse and storing the adhesive it produces, you should have a solid supply of adhesives.
Purchasing adhesives is a strong short-term solution, while killing creatures for adhesive takes longer but you’ll earn XP while you do it. Using a greenhouse is the better long-term solution, though it takes some setup time to gather the resources and some ranks is various skills. Either way, you’ll need to use the waiting trick for these methods to work.
Starfield Adhesive Farm FAQ
A: Adhesives are required for creating many objects, particularly outpost modules, mod upgrades for weapons, and the space suit.
A: You can purchase adhesive from two main vendors: Jae Montreal at New Homestead on Titan in the Sol system and Clint de Havin at Clint’s Collectibles on Gagarin in the Alpha Centauri system. They usually carry a significant amount, and you can use the vendor restock trick to make them replenish their stock.
A: A reliable long-term method is extracting adhesive from Sweetwater Cactus. To do this, locate a planet with Sweetwater Cactus, such as Gagarin. Scan the cactus, then build a greenhouse module at an outpost on that planet. This process requires at least one rank in both Botany and Outpost Engineering. Once you connect water to the greenhouse and store the adhesive it produces, you should have a consistent source of adhesives.
