Starfield is a game where you can spend hours doing menial tasks such as finding resources on barren planets, but also spend time living your best life in your dream home. You can do a lot of things in this giant open-world game. One of things you might spend a lot of time doing is building Outposts. This system is very deep, and can take a lot of time to learn properly, but is also incredibly rewarding when you learn how to utilize them correctly. Building Outposts can take you long enough, but the rest of the systems, such as assigning crew to an Outpost, can take a bit of time to figure out. Here’s our guide on how to assign crew to Outposts in Starfield.
