Starfield Demolitions skill overview

The Starfield Demolitions skill is a tier 2 skill in the Combat 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 Demolitions 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.

This skill buffs explosions and provides your grenades with a trajectory arc. As you level up this skill, the blast radius of explosions will be increased. Damage dealt from explosions will also be increased, and damage taken from explosions will be reduced. Upon mastering this skill, all of the buffs from each skill rank will be doubled.

Grenades can be a great way to deal with large groups of enemies, and you can use mines to lay a series of traps and take control of the battlefield.
