Starfield Negotiation skill overview

The Starfield Negotiation skill is a tier 2 skill in the Social 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 Negotiation 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 Negotiation skill allows you to bribe NPCs in speech challenges, with the bribery cost reducing as you rank this skill. The final rank provides a chance that bribery will cost nothing.

This skill can be a great way to win speech checks, as long as you have enough credits.
