Starfield Engine Systems skill overview

The Starfield Engine Systems skill is a tier 2 skill in the Tech 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 Engine Systems 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 increases your ship’s top speed, as you rank up this skill you will be able to boost for longer, with a reduce cooldown time. Once you reach rank 4 of this skill when boosting all enemies will disengage you and will only be able to reacquire you once you stop boosting.

Given the frequency of ship based combat and flight this skill would be a great idea to invest in as it has multiple applications, increasing speed and proving useful in combat.
