How to Get High Tensile Spidroin in Starfield

Gathering resources is an important part of Starfield. Whether you’re trying to craft an expansive outpost on a remote moon or just trying to add an upgrade to your spacesuit, you’re going to need all sorts of raw materials, resources, and other miscellaneous items on your journey throughout the Settled Systems. High Tensile Spidroin is one of the most common requirements in crafting recipes, but it’s frustratingly hard to find even for the most dedicated Starfield players. Thankfully, there are vendors that sell this material and easy farming spots that will get you a ton of High Tensile Spidroin in Starfield.

Fastest Way to Get High Tensile Spidroin in Starfield

High Tensile Spidroin is harvested from certain plants on select planets. The best place to find it is Linnaeus II in the Linnaeus system, a level 45 star system located between Alpha Centauri and Olympus.

Once you are in the Linnaeus system, select the planet of Linnaeus II. From there, rotate the planet to areas covered in snow and then scan for resources until you find a Frozen Mountains biome. Land in the Frozen Mountains on Linnaeus II and explore until you see a tall green plant called a Frigid Palm. You can harvest High Tensile Spidroin from these plants.

Leveling up your Botany skill will allow you to collect even more High Tensile Spidroin from a single Frigid Palm, but these plants are plentiful enough that you shouldn’t need to, especially if you only need a few of them for a crafting recipe.

Some vendors also sell High Tensile Spidroin, but usually not in high quantities. Any general goods store is a great place to look, such as Jemison Mercantile on New Atlantis or Shepherd’s General Store in Akila City. Just look in the Resources section of the shopkeeper’s inventory to find it.

Should You Gather a Lot of High Tensile Spidroin?

Yes, you definitely should pick up any High Tensile Spidroin you find. It’s a valuable crafting resource, and the more you have, the better you’ll be equipped for upgrading gear like your spacesuit and helmet in the future. This is because you can use the resource for making “Heavy Shielding” armor modifiers that increase your damage resistance. I recommend not selling any of your High Tensile Spidroin whatsoever.

Any time you need more High Tensile Spidroin, just head back to the Frozen Mountains of Linnaeus II and the Frigid Palms will be there waiting for you. Since each planet in Starfield is massive and flora respawns fast, you can return as often as you’d like to collect the goods.
