How to dock in Starfield

You need to dock your ship to explore enemy ships and space stations in Starfield. The Old Neighborhood may be one of the first places you experience a ship docking, but Sarah’s instructions may be confusing.

Here’s a quick overview of how to dock in Starfield.

To dock in Starfield, you need to target a ship or space station by pressing A on Xbox controllers or E on PC. Then get close enough to where you want to dock until you see the “Dock” option. Next, press and hold the X button on an Xbox controller or the R button on PC.

Once you’ve docked the location, a short cutscene will play and you’re free to explore anything you want.

As already mentioned, you can get onto enemy ships. You have to learn to stop them first. Chasing the engine is the easiest way to stop an enemy ship without destroying it.

The tech skill tree is key. When you spend a skill point on targeting systems, you unlock the ship targeting feature at rank 1.

Now that you have activated the first rank “Target Control Systems”, you can attack a machine. That’s how it’s done:

  1. Aim at the ship and press the E button on PC or the A button on an Xbox controller to target the enemy.
  2. Once everything is fully locked, press the R button on the PC or the X button on the Xbox controller.
  3. Use the arrow keys (PC) or the left stick (Xbox) to scroll through the ship parts until you get to the engine.
  4. Select the engine to shoot it.

You will know that the shuttle is immobile once the engine turns red.

To board the ship, aim at the machine using the E button on the PC or the A button on the Xbox controller. Then get within 500 meters to bring up the board option. You should be able to get onto the ship by holding R on PC or Y on a controller.
