Many planets in Starfield will list Nickel as one of their resources. To find Nickel on a planet:

Buy From Vendors and Check Loot

In addition to mining nickel directly from planets, there are a few other options. First, you can buy Nickel from vendors in settlements that sell resources, such as UC Distribution in New Atlantis. It can also occasionally be dropped as loot from enemies or containers. However, the chances of finding it this way are slim.

That’s all for the Nickel location in Starfield. For more help on this game, you should check out our Starfield section.
