X4 Foundations: Methane Locations

Methane is one of the most important resources used for terraforming in X4 Foundations, yet many players have trouble finding any.




Though every new game you play in X4 Foundations slightly changes the placement of resources on the map, there are only a few locations where some of them can spawn. So, here are the best places to mine Methane in X4 Foundations.

The two absolutely best places to mine Methane are The Void, slightly west of Argos Prime, and the Black Hole Sun, one system southeast of Argos Prime. 18 billion systems should also have a noticeable amount of methane. Other sectors that have a lot of this gas, although not as much as the three mentioned above are the Grand Exchange, Family Zhin, Family Nhuut, Trinity Sanctum VII, and the Pontifexs Claim.

Probes Not Finding Methane

One problem a lot of players face is that even when sending scouts to sectors where there should be a lot of Methane, they don’t seem to find any. That’s because the game limits the probes used by scouts heavily in comparison to those you can leave manually. And it just so happens that a lot of Methane is usually located in tricky places, where the scouts simply don’t look

So, make sure to always visit a sector with methane yourself, and preferably set a mining station there. You can also cheese the game a bit, by ordering your miners to automate for Methane – they will immediately stop moving if there isn’t any in the sector, which can save you the trouble of looking for it.
