Starfield missions

Starfield missions and quests reward successful Spacefarers with chunks of XP, special rewards, and unique encounters.

Starfield missions are a series of quests and objectives that can offer some unique challenges and rewards for the adventurous Spacefarer. Starfield quests can be found in a number of ways once you’ve completed the Starfield opening. Some missions will be added automatically to your questlog as part of the storyline, while others will require you to find NPCs and speak to them. A few missions, typically the more generic and procedurally generated ones, can be picked up simply by walking through an area and overhearing a conversation, or by visiting a Mission Board.

Completing Starfield quests will advance the main storyline, and provide you with a host of rewards from unique Starfield weapons, XP, and more. While the main quest is often something players leave to last in previous Bethesda games, it is advised you follow most of the main missions in Starfield as they are designed to introduce you to every important location and character in the Settled Systems.

Starfield missions can be broken down into three main categories:

Starfield radiant quests

With a vast universe containing over 1000 planets and procedural generation, the Starfield Mission Board provides radiant quests help fill in the gaps so you always have something to do. Radiant quests are often repeatable or similar in nature, offering lower rewards than secondary or main questlines.

Fortunately, using our NPCs, factions, and planets guide, you can focus on the best quests in all the Settled Systems and reduce the number of radiant missions you encounter.
