An outpost in Starfield is extremely useful, providing oppurtunities for mining, storage, and more. That’s exactly why it took me so long to pick the perfect location for my outpost. Check out these great locales and some helpful information on how to make the best decision for you!
Best Locations for Outposts in Starfield
Choosing an optimal outpost location is not an easy decision. There are so many available spots, all of which have their own advantages. With that in mind, we narrowed down your options to a few great choices for you to consider!
Linnaeus IV-B is a moon of Linneaus IV, a planet in the Linneaus system. The Linneaus system is immediately southwest of Olympus. You can find quite a few resources on Linneaus IV-B, like:
- Hydromelonic Acid
Not only do you get access to these great resources, but there are other moons and planets nearby that are similarly resource rich. You also get to enjoy a more hospitable climate. Like many (but not all) other moons, it has no fauna (creatures or animals) to worry about. Overall, we think Linneaus IV-B is one of the best options out there for your future outpost.
In the Narion system, the moon of the planet Sumati is Andraphon. The Narion system is north of both the Sol and Aplha Centauri systems. This planet has a fair amount of resources, certainly enough to keep you busy managing your incoming resources, like:
Like Linneaus IV-B, there’s no fauna to attack you or your crew while you’re at your outpost. The climate there is also decently mild, meaning less to worry about in terms of suit protection.
Zamka is a moon of the Olivas planet, which sits in the Alpha Centauri system. Alpha Centauri is the same system that houses Jemison (New Atlantis), so you should be well aware of it by now. It has these resources:
Not only does Zamka have plenty of resources (including a couple that are less commonly seen), it also has a very convenient location. It is situated within Alpha Centauri, putting you very close to New Atlantis. Most players visit New Atlantis often, so this is great. It also has no fauna to worry about, just like our other entries.

- Proximity to other resource-filled planets/moons or useful locales (like New Atlantis)
