What Is A Bounty?

Crime Penalty

Starfield Bounty

In Starfield, players have the freedom to explore the vast, immersive universe filled with cities, towns, and settlements. However, some actions may be considered criminal, such as theft, assault, trespassing, or murder. You get a bounty as a consequence when you are caught committing a crime.

Don't Get Caught In Act!

When an NPC or guard witnesses you taking unlawful actions, you might be warned at first, which might escalate into an arrest or head straight to a full blown combat. Resisting arrest or engaging in combat with guards will further increase the bounty and result in a full-scale pursuit by law enforcement in the respective area.
