In addition, we’ll talk a little bit about how you can use Hot Ice to your advantage to line your pockets with units in No Man’s Sky Next.

How to Get Hot Ice

Hot Ice is a useful ingredient, and half of the formula that you will need to make cryo-pumps. Cryo-pumps are a fantastically priced item that allows you to make tons of money fast in No Man’s Sky. If you want to make these items, then getting your hands on Hot Ice should be one of your top priorities once you have your hyperdrive fixed.

The first step to finding out how to make this item is going to be finding out how to craft it. To do this, start collecting technology and unlocking new blueprints. Once you acquire the blueprint for Hot Ice, you can start collecting the resources that you need to fix it.

In order to make Hot Ice, you’ll need to get your hands on Enriched Carbon and Ammonium Salt. These items can be crafted manually by combining other items.

To craft Ammonium Salt you will need to gather up 250 Nitrogen and 25 Carbon, both items should be easily accessible on most planets. Once you have these items, craft the Ammonium Salt in your inventory.

Now that you have the Ammonium Salt, it’s time to make the second part of this equation, Enriched Carbon. You can craft Enriched Carbon by gathering up 250 Radon—which is harvested from plants, as well as Atmosphere Harvesters—and 25 Carbon. Combine the two items in the inventory screen and you’ll find yourself with Enriched Carbon, which you can then combine with the Ammonium Salt to make Hot Ice.

You can also purchase Hot Ice itself from the Galactic Trade Terminal, which you can find onboard any space station. Keep in mind that different terminals/locations offer different items for sell, so feel free to travel around to a few different systems if you’re having trouble finding the item.
