One Small Step Walkthrough

Follow The Target Icon

The blue icons indicate mission objectives and their distance, making it easy to locate destinations by aiming at them.

Unlocks Character Creation

The appearance customization will be unlocked after you wake up from the accident in the mineral deposit.

Change Biometric ID/Face/Body

The customization feature allows you to modify your character's body type, skin tone, face details, and walk style. You can also visit a genetics facility to adjust your Biometric customizations later.

Character Creation Guide

Choose Your Background

You can choose your job before becoming an Argos Extractor, each background offering a unique combination of 3 Starting Skills. It is recommended to select a combination that suits your playing style.

Best Backgrounds - Which Class To Choose

Set 3 Traits

You can choose 3 Traits from a total of 16. Each trait has its own pros and cons and can be beneficial depending on your background. If you're uncertain about which traits to choose, referring to the guide below might be helpful.

Best Traits For Each Background - Which 3 Traits To Choose?

Pirates Battle Guide

Your first battle in Starfield is against low-level pirates from the Crimson Fleet. If your HP is low, you can restore it by pressing 0.

Unlocks Starmap

The Starmap is unlocked after the tutorial on Spaceship. It allows you to search for planets, set routes, and scan planet resources.

Open Digipick Locks

When exploring Kreet Research Lab, you may come across Digipick Locks. To unlock these locks, rotate your Digipicks until all open slots in each layer are filled. Please keep in mind that each key can only be used once.

Deal with the Crimson Fleet

Use Persuasion To Avoid Fighting

To stop the captain of Crimson Fleet from tracing Barett, attacking him is not the only option. You can persuade him without resorting to force. To persuade someone, you must make wise choices. Each choice has a difficulty. The more difficult the choice, the greater the risk of failure, but the higher the points if you succeed.

Persuasion Choices for Brogan

1+3Hey, if you want to trade ships, that sounds good to me. The Frontier creaks when it turns away.
2+3Just take a moment and count how much you've already lost. You don't want to lose more.

Unlocks Ship Upgrade Mode

Once you talk to the Ship Services Technician, the Ship System will be unlocked. This will allow you to repair, view, modify, buy, and sell your ship. You can also enhance the ship parts through the Ship Upgrade mode, but note that some upgrades may require certain levels or skills.

Talk To Sarah To Complete The Mission

After placing your Artifact in the Lodge, Sarah will invite you to join Constellation. Accept and receive the Constellation Pack to complete the mission.
