There are a ton of things for you to do in Starfield, most of which don’t have much to do with the story. In the spirit of creating your adventure, Bethesda Softworks has made the game as immersive as possible, and this by letting you do most things you can think of…well most things. Much like Skyrim or even the older Morrowind, you can do some whacky and downright funny things such as putting a bucket on an NPC. However, the following is a little more intense and more brutal. The best part is that you might not get in trouble for it. The following PSA is that there is a way to knock out and kill NPCs in Starfield with a box — legally speaking. If you want to know how to do such a thing, follow along.
Starfield: How to knock and kill someone legally with a box in
Starfield is so expansive with the sheer amount of things you can find such as the Apollo Landing Site, that you may not even think you can do this. Well, Reddit user —Qwerty has demonstrated that anything is possible in Starfield. You can kill an NPC and take their loot, all without having any issue with the law. From the video posted on the Subreddit of Starfield, it seems when you pick up a box and yeet it as hard as you can at an NPC, they will fall. After they’ve “died”, you can loot them like normal, and no one seems to bat an eye.
It also seems like your companion doesn’t take any issue with you randomly and legally killing some in Starfield. -–Qwerty has also stated that if you do it in front of other NPCs, they won’t react as well.
If you’re not trying to go full bad guy and want to take out some anger towards some unruly NPCs in the world, this may be your best option.
