In No Man’s Sky NEXT, there are a few different ways to get Technology Modules. Depending on whether or not you have an old save in No Man’s Sky, you may be able to get a few Technology Modules by default. This is because, when you load into No Man’s Sky after installing the NEXT update, you’ll notice some of the items in your inventory have been changed into “Obsolete Technology.”

Dismantling each item labeled as Obsolete Technology will net you three Technology Modules. Of course, if you enter No Man’s Sky NEXT via a new save, you’ll need to rely on other ways to get Technology Modules. One way to get Technology Modules in a new save is by heading to a Trade Console at a nearby Trade Outpost or Space Station. Here, you’ll be able to purchase Technology Models.

Note that Technology Modules are quite pricey, and will cost you 60,000 Units each. If you have the Units on hand and desperately need a Technology Module to complete a crafting item, you’ll have no trouble acquiring one this way. Alternatively, it’s possible to get Technology Modules in No Man’s Sky NEXT by purchasing Tech Upgrades from merchants at various Space Stations.

By dismantling these Tech Upgrades, there’s a chance you may get a Technology Module. The higher level the Tech Upgrade, the higher the chance of getting a Technology Module when you dismantle it. Lastly, the patch notes for No Man’s Sky NEXT state that you can find Technology Modules underground by using the Terraforming Tool/Terrain Manipulator attachment upgrade for your Multi-Tool.

Technology Modules are rare, so it may take you a considerable amount of time to find them this way. However, it’s still a worthwhile endeavour if you don’t have the money to purchase Technology Modules or Tech Upgrades at your local Space Station. Using these strategies, you should be able to get Technology Modules in No Man’s Sky NEXT.
