Bethesda’s new opus Starfield is huge, and this also applies to the repertoire of possible equipment such as legendary weapons or armor.
Here’s the deal: In Starfield, there are different rarity levels for items. The most powerful items in the game are epic and legendary weapons and armor. In this guide, we’ll show you how to get them early in the game.
Starfield: How To Get Legendary Items
The loot mechanics in Starfield work like in almost all other games. The stronger your enemies are and the higher the difficulty level you play on, the better the items these enemies drop. The same goes for items from chests.
So, the chance of getting a legendary item is much higher if you defeat appropriately strong enemies. However, you can easily get the loot from this difficulty without having to play it directly.
To do this, follow these steps:
- Find an area that has a station or something similar, where there are as many enemies as possible.
- Set the difficulty level as high as possible and save your score.
- Enter the selected shipyard or space station and change the difficulty level back to easy.
By entering the station at a time when the highest difficulty level was still saved, it was loaded with the corresponding loot. The change to a low difficulty level then only affects the strength of the enemies, but not their dropped loot.
