Loots and drops

If you are not willing to pay any money to get this item, you can always obtain Cosmetic from enemy drops, loots, and supplies. The best way to get the drops is by killing enemies. You can always loot the body of any dead enemy and find some valuable loot in it. Moreover, plants and animals in Starfield also drop Cosmetic. However, stocking up Cosmetic by only relying on the free method would take up a lot of time for you to collect ample units of this item.

Starfield is available now via Xbox Game Store and Game Pass.
