Starfield Boxing skill overview

The Starfield Boxing skill is a tier 1 skill in the Physical skill tree. It, as with all Starfield skills, has 4 ranks, beginning at rank 1 and ending at rank 4. In order to progress up the Boxing skill tree, you will need to complete various skill challenges related to the skill in question, and increase your Starfield level to earn skill points. Each rank requires a skill point to unlock.

The Boxing skill increases damage dealt by unarmed attacks and reduces O2 consumed when performing unarmed attacks. Upon mastering this skill you will have a chance to knock down opponents.

If you want to focus on close combat engagements when fighting enemies, this skill will be for you, as it has the potential for a large damage output.
