In the vast expanse of Starfield, managing your ship’s systems is crucial. The Taskmaster trait eases this responsibility, allowing your trained crew members to automatically repair ship systems they’re proficient in. However, this convenience comes at a price.


How Taskmaster Trait Works

  1. Automatic Repairs: If you have crew members trained in a specific ship system, that system will automatically repair itself to full health if it gets damaged below 50%. This can be a lifesaver during intense combat situations, ensuring your ship remains functional.
  2. Increased Crew Hiring Costs: While the automatic repairs are beneficial, there’s a trade-off. All crew members will cost twice as much to hire, which can strain your resources, especially in the early stages of the game.

How To Get Taskmaster Trait

  1. Character Creation: At the onset of Starfield, players can select the Taskmaster trait as one of their initial three trait choices.
  2. Console Commands: For those who enjoy customizing their gameplay, specific console commands can be used. To add the Taskmaster trait, input the command: player.addperk 00227FE0. If you decide to part ways with the trait, use the command: player.removeperk 00227FE0.

How To Remove Taskmaster Trait

  1. Consultation with Keeper Aquilus: If you ever reconsider the benefits of the Taskmaster trait, you can visit Keeper Aquilus at the Sanctum Universum in New Atlantis. Engage in a conversation related to the Taskmaster trait, and when prompted, choose the dialogue option that removes the trait.
  2. Alternative Removal: Alternatively, Andy Singh at the House of the Enlightened in The Well can also assist in removing the trait.

Is Taskmaster Worth It

The Taskmaster trait offers a unique balance of convenience and cost. The automatic repair feature can be invaluable during combat, ensuring your ship remains operational. However, the doubled crew hiring costs can be a significant drawback, especially if you’re frequently recruiting new crew members. Players should weigh the benefits of automatic repairs against the increased hiring costs to determine if the Taskmaster trait aligns with their gameplay style and strategy.
