How to loot ships in Starfield


You will be spending a lot of your time fighting the enemy spaceships in Starfield, and you can loot them for precious materials and other parts. The tutorial to do that is a bit complicated, and I was one of the players who completely missed it, so I was struggling to loot the ships after destroying them. If you are in a similar situation, this guide is here to help you loot destroyed ships in Starfield.

To loot a destroyed ship in Starfield, you have to attack it and smash it to pieces. Once you do that, head over to the white markers that appear on the pieces of the ship and press the target change button, which is E on PC. Once you do that, you will see all the materials and credits you can loot from the ship parts.

How to Loot Damaged Ships in Starfield

The second way to loot a ship is to not destroy it but damage it until it’s not hostile. Afterward, get close to it and board the ship to loot the valuables from inside. This whole system reminds me of how looting ships in Assassin’s Creed Black Flag worked back in those days. 

Starfield takes that a step further, where you can disable enemy ships and keep them for yourself. This is a lot better, and I recommend that since it allows you to keep the ship for yourself or sell it for credits.
