I landed on a planet and found an exotic element on. However, to my surprise, it wasn't something you mine like the majority of the elements in the game. Instead, you need to walk up to it and pick it up. But to pick it up, I need Hazmat Gauntlets. How do I get these?

  • Can this be tagged with foundation-update?

  • Someone with a high enough rep should be able to create it., If not, perhaps adding it to the title.

From this thread, it looks like you'll need an armourer at your base, as that is who will give you the blueprints for them:

Build the specialist terminals at your base, then staff them. One of them is a weapons terminal that needs you to find an armourer. The armourer gives you a mini quest to get the plans for the Haz-Mat gloves.

    Ugh this new update... it's like they are making up for something. I've still yet to get a base built.

Over time, the way Hazmat Gauntlets are created has changed.
