Wandering across large expanses on foot or tearing around the cosmos in your spaceship is all well and good, but there is another way to travel in Starfield and that's by using your boost pack! Let's take a look at how it works.
Starfield: How To Get The Boost Pack, How To Use Your Boost Pack And All Boost Pack Upgrades
How To Get The Boost Pack
Nabbing the boost pack is as simple as spending a skill point on the Boost Pack training skill in the skills menu. Once you've done this you can make use of the pack by jumping and then pressing jump again when you're in the air.
On normal gravity planets, boosting around can feel a little underwhelming to start out, especially until you get your hands on a boost pack with better stats. However, get yourself to a low-gravity planet, such as the moon, and the fun really kicks in, as you can keep in the air for ages and cover lots of ground quickly.
How To Use The Boost Pack
On Xbox, pressing "Y" when you're in the air uses your boost pack and you can see its available remaining thrust indicated by a white line in your UI when you use it.
Getting to grips with the pack and making sure you upgrade to give yourself more range will ensure it can be used to maximum effect for exploring and in combat, where it can be very effective for getting above foes and having that all-important upper ground advantage.
As we mentioned, this is a traversal method that works best in low-grav situations, so make sure to remember to bust out some boost moves when you get the chance, you can save yourself a lot of hassle with oxygen depletion by manoeuvring around via this method.
All Boost Pack Upgrades
Finally, and besides finding or buying better back packs to boost your boost skills, you can also continue to spend skill points in the Boost Pack skill tree to maximise its effectiveness and give you far more air-time, to the point you'll eventually be able to hover around for quite some time.
To access higher branches of the skill, make sure you use the pack as much as you can in order to net enough time in the air to open up slots to spend a skill point in.
