Starfield Targeting skill overview

The Starfield Targeting skill is a tier 3 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 Targeting 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 Targeting skill improves the accuracy of your guns and ranged weapons when firing without aiming. It also will mark enemies in your vicinity that damage you, with the range increasing as you rank up this skill.

Aiming down sights can take time, but with this skill you can improve your weapons accuracy without the need for aiming.
