Can you change Traits in Starfield? Answered

A case of indecisiveness.

At the beginning of your Starfield journey, you get to choose three Traits from an array of options. These Traits offer unique gameplay avenues and roleplay options. But can you change your Traits later on in Starfield?

Can you remove or add Traits?

While you used to have to make sure you chose the best Traits because you were stuck with them, that isn’t the case anymore. In a recent update for Starfield that introduced detailed city maps and new gameplay options, Bethesda also implemented the ability to change your Traits by entering the Unity.

Initially, you were only able to remove certain Traits in Starfield, such as Kid Stuff, Introvert/Extrovert, and Raised Enlightened/Universal. Each Trait has specific removal methods. For example, Kid Stuff allows you to visit your parents, but you have to give them 2% of your Credits weekly. If you chat with your parents, there’s an option to remove the Trait by telling them you can’t afford to pay them anymore.

Removing other Traits requires surgical procedures, while some ask that you speak with the people related to the Trait. While you can reduce the amount of Traits you have, you can’t replace them with new ones by any easy means.

If you want another way to change your Traits, you can simply enter the Unity after collecting all Artifacts and creating the Armillary. If you do decide to enter the Unity, you’ll choose to become a Starborn. But with this new update, you’ll also have the chance to change your Traits and even your appearance.

Since this is a late-game occurrence, you’ll have to stick with your unwanted Traits for a while until you make it to this point in the game. If you’re jumping back into Starfield with the new update out, you’ll probably want to know more about the new feature that allows you to increase vendor credits.
