Welcome to the detailed guide for all Gold Nucleus locations in the Astra region. Getting these are vital in helping you get more SSR weapons in the long run. There are 21 of them in the Astra region.
Here is a video by Gamer Guru (kudos to him) that will walk you through the locations. I will have screenshot on each location to give you a good reminder of where to find them.

After jumping in that order, the gold nucleus will show up in the middle.
