Should You Buy the Shieldbreaker Ship in Starfield?

Whether you should purchase the Shieldbreaker ship in Starfield depends on your progress in the game. To fly the ship, you need at least Class B clearance, which requires investing three skill points into the Piloting skill. This is a worthwhile investment regardless. If you have the funds, it’s recommended to go for it. The Shieldbreaker is a powerful combat ship with a cargo capacity of 2280 and solid grav jump capabilities.

  • Reactor: 27 (B Class)
