The Starfield Burden of Proof evidence locations are scattered all across the Settled Systems, and finding them is going to take a pretty mammoth effort if you want to get them all. Luckily for you, that’s where we come in, as we’ve got all 20 locations already sussed out so you can simply head to each one and pick them up.

You can never have too many Starfield tips and tricks, so check out our guide for some handy ones. Collecting evidence will take you through all the Crimson Fleet quests like the Starfield Absolute Power quest, but if you’re after a change of pace then check out our Starfield Operation Starseed guide, too. With that, let’s take a look at where you can find all 20 Burden of Proof evidence locations in Starfield.

All 20 pieces of evidence and their locations in Burden of Proof

There are a total of 20 pieces of evidence available in the Burden of Proof quest, but you only need to collect 18 of them to complete the quest. However, there are a fair few of them that are only available for a certain amount of time, and once you complete certain missions, you won’t be able to find them until your Starfield new game plus playthrough.

Here’s a list of every piece of evidence in Burden of Proof, where to find each one, what mission you can find it on, and whether you can miss it:

Burden of Proof rewards

Every time you bring a piece of evidence to Lieutenant Toft aboard the UC Vigilance, you’ll be rewarded with some credits. Once you’ve brought a total of 18 pieces, you’ll have enough evidence to complete the quest, and you’ll learn a bit about Lieutenant Toft’s backstory, and her upbringing in the Crimson Fleet. As a final reward, you’ll get one more lot of credits and the Legendary Pistol Memento Mori.

That’s all 20 pieces of evidence in Burden of Proof and their locations. If you’re looking to try out a different faction’s quests, the Freestar Rangers have some great ones like the Starfield Delivering Devils quest. And if you’re looking to build yourself the best ship money can buy, then you’ll need to know all the Starfield best ship parts to do it.
