In Starfield, you can unlock powers that are special abilities that you gain as you progress through the game and travel space. These powers include the ability to push enemies back and mind reading (sort of). In this Starfield powers guide, we go over how you can unlock powers, use them, and the powers discovered so far.


How To Unlock Powers In Starfield

Powers can be unlocked early on in Starfield by completing The Old Neighborhood mission received from Constellation and then completing the main mission called Into The Unknown. During the mission, you will investigate an Anomaly site and get to a temple.

Inside the temple, you will see patches of light and rings. Passing through the patches of light will make the rings spin faster. Keep passing through the patches of light, and the rings will form a portal that you can pass through. You will then be teleported outside and will gain the Anti-Gravity Field power. This is how you can gain your first power in Starfield.

Complete Into the Unknown to get the mission called Power From Beyond. This will have you explore different planets in search of other temples that will reward you with additional powers. The process of finding the temples is the same, and so is the process of gaining the power.


It is worth mentioning that you might not be able to unlock all the powers from the get-go. Since access to them depends on the number of artifacts you have found.

How To Use Powers In Starfield

To equip powers in Starfield, head into the main menu and select the option above the head of your character. This will bring up the force menu. This will reveal how many powers you currently have unlocked. You can click on the power to select and equip it.

A blue power bar will pop up right under your HP bar. This will lower when you use your power and will automatically regenerate over time. Keep an eye on the power bar and see how quickly it depletes when you use your powers.

Tip: You can quickly switch between powers by adding them to your Quickslot.
