Aside from building numerous outposts across the galaxy, going directly to vendors is one the best ways to garner resources in Starfield. Not every vendor is equal though, and in this guide, I’ll go over which place is the best to buy resources so you can save time jumping from planet to planet.

Best Place to Buy Resources in Starfield

The best vendor to buy resources from in Starfield is Wen Tseng at the UC Distribution Center in New Atlantis. You can find the distribution building in the Commercial District of New Atlantis, which is located on planet Jemison. This is one of the main planets in the game and you can find Jemison by heading to the Alpha Centauri system.

To find the UC Distribution Center, head to the Commercial District and look for the SSNN building. If you take the NAT transit or you fast travel, the SSNN building should be to your right. From there, you can head straight and look for the distribution center on your right. It won’t be a normal shop with a small door. Instead, you technically need to load in.

When you get inside the UC Distribution Center, speak to Wen Tseng at the main counter. She has everything you need as a vendor, and if you compare her wares to most other vendors, you’ll see the selection is massive. Nearly any resource you can think of is in high supply, including Adhesives and Titanium, which I needed tons of for my weapon mods.

In terms of pricing, this vendor won’t be any better than other options. So, if you’re looking for the cheapest place to buy resources in Starfield, this is not for you. But if you just need to stack up on rare metals and elements, then look no further.

Once you have the resources you need, learn how you can start researching weapon mods in Starfield.
