Alright, so you’re diving into Starfield, and just like many Bethesda games, you’re drowning in loot. Good news! Your trusty spaceship comes with a massive cargo hold to stash all that precious stuff. But figuring out how to use it can be a bit puzzling at first. No worries, though – here’s how to get your items snug and safe on your ship.
Getting to the Cargo Hold
First off, know that every ship has a button to open the cargo hold, but they like to play hide and seek in different spots depending on the ship model. However, there’s a smarter way to access your loot stash without searching high and low.
The Easy Way In
To stow or retrieve your loot on your ship, make sure you’re doing it from inside your ship, not out in the open or in some random landing bay. Then, open up your inventory from the menu screen. You’ll see an option to store items straight from your inventory. If you want to access the cargo hold, just hit Q or LB, and you’re in – grab whatever you’ve got stored in there.
If you’re the menu-navigation type, head over to the ‘Ship’ screen tucked away at the bottom left corner of the menu. This comes in handy when you want to grab items you snagged from wrecked ships or space rocks.
The Ship’s Cockpit Trick
Oh, and here’s a nifty trick: check out your ship’s cockpit. You’ll spot a cargo hold screen that looks like a mini-computer embedded in the wall. That’s another route to your loot haven.
But here’s the catch: if you’ve got any contraband stuff stashed in your cargo hold, be ready for trouble if security scans find it. Also, there’s a limit to how much stuff your ship can handle, but you can bump up that limit by either splurging on a bigger ship or installing roomier cockpits and cargo holds on your current ride.
