Starfield Outpost Management skill overview

The Starfield Outpost Management skill is a tier 3 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 Outpost Management 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 will improve the effectiveness of your outpost by allowing for additional cargo links, robots and crew to be placed. The final rank causes outpost extractors to double production.

Outpost Management is a useful skill for anyone constructing many outposts as it has the potential to vastly increase the production from resource extractors.
