If you don’t know where to get Lubricant, we are going to show you how to get it and all the locations where you can find Lubricant in Starfield.
Where to Get Lubricant in Starfield
The item description for this item reads as following: “Exotic organic resource. This item can be used as a component in crafting.” Admittedly, this doesn’t give us too much information about where we should go and look for it. So let’s see where you can find Lubricant in the game. First of all, you can get it from looting random ships and downed enemies, as well as from exploring and opening crates and other such containers. Though, this always comes down to RNG, so you shouldn’t count on being able to get enough Lubricant simply from doing this. The other method – which is far more reliable – is to buy Lubricant.
As for where you can purchase Lubricant in Starfield, you can do this at at certain vendors in the game. Specifically, the ones that sell Resources such as this. Here is our list of vendor locations in Starfield for easier orientation. For example, you can find and buy Lubricant in the Jemison Mercantile or UC Distributation Center on New Atlantis. Here’s where all the New Atlantis shops can be found. Though, note that, you may not necessarily find Lubricant there each time you visit. This is because the shopkeeper’s inventory is also subject to RNG and often randomized. If that is the case, then you should sleep for 24h – so that Jemison Mercantile’s inventory refreshes – and go back to see if they have Lubricant now.
