Exploring the cosmos in Starfield means more than just a casual jaunt around the Solar System. With a universe teeming with around a hundred unique star systems, there’s no shortage of mysteries to unravel, planets to explore, and challenges to overcome. But there’s one star system that’s got players scratching their helmets in confusion: the elusive Serpentis system. If you’re among those cosmic explorers wondering where it’s hidden, we’ve got you covered. Here’s your no-nonsense guide to finding the Serpentis system in Starfield.


Locating Serpentis System

Finding the Serpentis system isn’t as straightforward as you’d hope, but with these pointers, you’ll be on your way:

  • Star Chart Savvy: First things first, you’re going to want to get comfortable with your star chart. It’s a big universe out there, and the Serpentis system isn’t exactly jumping up and down, waving a flag. You’ll find it nestled away in the outer reaches, so zoom out and start scanning.
  • Reference Points: No luck? Try using other systems for orientation. If you’re familiar with the Kryx system, for instance, you can use it as a starting point. Look around the nearby sectors, and keep an eye out for Serpentis’s unique signature.
  • Visual Cues: Still searching? Serpentis has a distinct appearance compared to its cosmic neighbors. It’s not the biggest kid on the block, but its color and pattern are telltale signs you’ve found the right system.

Planets and Moons in Serpentis

Serpentis system isn’t a one-trick pony; it’s got a mix of celestial bodies, each with its own quirks. You’ve got planets with extreme temperatures, moons with unforgiving terrains, and even some asteroid fields thrown in for good measure. It’s a regular smorgasbord of exploration opportunities.

While every planet and moon in Serpentis system has its own charm, there are a couple that seasoned explorers insist you can’t miss. There’s one with gravity so low you can leap mountains, and another where the electromagnetic storms are a sight to behold (just don’t get too close).

Serpentis is full of surprises. Some explorers have reported strange readings and even mysterious signals from unnamed celestial bodies. If you’re the curious type, it might be worth taking a detour to see for yourself.

Why Visit Serpentis? It’s A Farming Heaven

For the grinders out there, Serpentis is your paradise. The system’s high-level enemies are just waiting to give you a boatload of XP. If you’re looking to level up fast, this is the place to do it. It’s not just about the thrill of the fight; it’s about the spoils of war. Serpentis’s enemies aren’t just tough; they’re also hoarding some of the rarest materials in the game. We’re talking top-tier crafting components, folks.

Now, this is the big one. The Serpentis system is one of the few places in the universe where you can find Va’Ruun particle weapons. These bad boys can change the tide in any battle, making you a force to be reckoned with. Last but not least, Serpentis is home to some unique ships you won’t find anywhere else. If you’re looking to stand out from the crowd or need a ship with a little extra oomph, you know where to go.

Farming The Sepentis System For Loot, XP, And Resources

Acquire a ship with EMP weapons and sufficient cargo space. Head to the Serpentis star system, known for a high concentration of Va’Ruun zealot ships. Each planet/moon in the system has a high chance of spawning Va’Ruun enemy ships. Use EMP weapons to disable the ships. If multiple enemy ships are present, focus on all but the highest-level ship first.

Once an enemy ship is disabled, board it. Eliminate the enemies aboard and loot their bodies. Take the pilot seat, undock, and designate that ship as your home ship (registration is optional unless you intend to sell it). Re-dock with your original ship and set it as your home ship again. The looted items from the enemy ship will transfer to your original ship’s cargo hold. The enemy ship, now vacant, will be available for you to sell or keep.

This method yields significant XP and credits, especially from high-value equipment and selling hijacked ships. It’s also an effective way to acquire Va’Ruun particle weapons.

  • Some players have found ship parts that aren’t purchasable due to their level.
  • There’s a strategy to ensure you don’t lose your original ship: after undocking with the new ship, target your original ship before making the new ship your home. This way, you can immediately re-dock with the original ship.
  • EM weapons are recommended but not mandatory; players can target engines directly.
  • Looting bodies is optional as all items on the ship will transfer to your inventory or home ship’s cargo when the ship is sold or modified.
  • Specific ships like Dirge III, Revelation II, and Prophecy III are highlighted for their respective benefits in farming, resale value, and equipment.
