Wanted overview

You can collect the Wanted Starfield trait from 17 options during the Starfield character creation screen. Upon finalizing your character and leaving the character creator menu, you will no longer be able to pick up additional traits like Wanted if you didn’t select it the first time around. You can get around this limitation by using a Starfield console command, but not without disabling Starfield achievements.

Fortunately, Starfield allows you to remove traits by speaking with trait-specific NPCs, so you can always remove the Wanted trait if you find it counter-productive, or not as much fun as you thought.

The Starfield Wanted trait brings enemies to you, both in space and on the ground. However, in exchange for being permanently hunted, you gain unique dialogue options, and a damage boost when your health is low.

Wanted in-game description

Someone put a price on your head, and word has spread. Occasionally, armed mercenaries will show up and try to kill you, but being cornered gives you an edge – when your health is low, you do extra damage.
