No Man’s Sky Chromatic Metal Location

To get Chromatic Metal you need to multiple resources in the portable smelter. First up, you’ll need to collect copper. You can then build a refiner from the quick menu.

You can then put copper into the Refiner to make Chromatic metal. Copper is a fairly common resourse.

You can find this metal in ground-based deposits, and in pillars on multiple planets. It’s also sometimes available to buy at the Galactic Trade Network.
