Walkthrough Guides

You Do Not Need To Kill The Hunter

Starfield Check On Walter

You don't need to secure a complete victory over the Hunter to meet the objective. Your goal is to land a few hits and keep the Hunter at bay until Noel retrieves the artifacts before you all dash out to the starship. So you don't need to use up your ammo to take him down.

Try To Rush Towards The Ship Instead Of Focusing In Battle

Starfield High Price To Pay Head To The Ship

While you will cross paths with the Hunter once more outside the Lodge, attempting to defeat it for a bonus weapon is currently unfeasible. Instead, focus on getting to the starship with Noel.

A Companion Will Die During The Mission

Starfield High Price To PaySarah Dies

You will likely lose a companion in the Starborn attack on the Lodge and The Eye however the companion that will likely die depends on your choice. These two character may vary as it will depend on which characters you have interacted the most up to this point. You will either rescue a dying companion in The Eye or risk leaving another to barricade the Lodge, only to comeback later and see their demise.

Spoiler Alert!You Can You Save Both Companions In The New Game Plus!
After you reached the end of the story, you can start over again with the New Game+ where you can move the Armillary earlier and save everyone in the High Price To Pay mission.

Build The Armillary Where You Can Defend It Successfully From Attacks

Starfield High Price To Pay Armillary

Starborn attacks are more likely wherever the Armillary is placed. If you choose to keep the Artifacts in your ship, then attacks are likely everywhere. If you have an outpost, placing the Armillary there will likely get it raided often so you will need to put up defenses in order to secure it.

Outpost Build - Base Building & Create Items

Retrieve Companion's Belongings

Starfield High Price To Pay Retrieve Companion Belongings

Upon returning to the Lodge after the encounters, you'll discover your deceased companion's belongings in a chest situated in the Lodge's basement. Acquiring their equipment from there will allow you to complete the side mission objective.

Obtain New Mission Unity

After reporting back to Matteo, he will recall about the conversation with your encounter with the Hunter and send you to find the Keeper Aquilus. A new mission will be unlocked and it will be added to your quest.
