Here’s why save-scumming is your ticket to the best Starfield loot

When you find some legendary loot in Starfield, there's actually a way you can reroll item perks to make sure that you have the best equipment available.

If you want to make sure you’re making the most of your legendary loot in Starfield, there’s a few things you can do to ensure you get the best Starfield weapons and the right Spacesuit stats to suit your needs. One of those things, which you may not realize you can use to tailor your loot to your taste, is save-scumming. It might be a way for you to avoid catastrophe in Baldur’s Gate 3, but you can actually reroll item perks in Starfield – well, of certain items, anyway.

As highlighted by content creator ‘JuiceHead‘ in a Starfield tips video ahead of the full Starfield release date, you can actually use quicksave to reroll some of the bonus attributes of legendary loot items in Starfield. If you like this easy-to-miss Batman-inspired mission, you’ll know that there’s some legendary-rarity loot available at the end of it – and a fantastic new ship for you to claim. With attributes that offer additional Carry Weight and reduced oxygen consumption, the Spacesuit, Helmet, and Pack are all well-worth claiming.

But, what if you don’t like the perks these items come with? Well, you don’t actually have to settle for them, as long as you leave the Spacesuit on the mannequin you find it on – in this case. As you can see below, you should be able to reload a quicksave and find that the Spacesuit offers you a different selection of additional perks than it did before.

One thing worth noting, as you may have heard in the above video, this doesn’t seem to work on any legendary loot items hidden in locked safes and containers. However, if this legendary loot item is out in the open and available for the taking, you should be able to reroll the item’s perks and make sure you’re looting legendary items that benefit you in the way you want. You just need to make sure you don’t actually pick the item up beforehand – just in case.

Is Starfield really one of the best games of all time, though? Well, we can only imagine that this depends on who you ask – and whether they have an Xbox or not. We think there’s a case to be made, in any case, due to the sheer freedom of choice this Bethesda RPG offers you. You can max-out your Piloting skill without ever setting foot in space, and you can sneakily steal the rare Mark 1 Spacesuit right from the start of the game – both of which things that are all-too-easy to miss.

Then, you have the impressive ship builder and the wide array of Starfield ship customization options available. We’re already seeing some of the best custom Starfield ships appearing online and we can only imagine we’ll see even more in the coming weeks. Whether you’re out there hopping between any one of the 1,000 Starfield planets waiting to be explored or checking out the Starfield Freestar Collective faction missions, there’s just so much to do. You may as well take a moment to make sure your Spacesuit is giving you the best bonuses possible while you do it.
