If you’re wondering how to get infinite money in Starfield? You’re in the right place. Money, they say, makes the world go around – and turns out, it’s true for galaxies too with the Starfield money glitch.

While of course getting infinite money in your Starfield playthrough isn’t playing by the rules of the world, having a lot of credits can make your interstellar life a lot easier. The Starfield money glitch can make that happen. You’ll be able to buy as much as you can carry from vendors, have your choice of almost any ship, and have yourself fully kitted out for whatever the galaxy can throw at you.

If you don’t mind then, or you just want to have a separate overpowered playthrough for fun during breaks from your real campaign, then here’s how you can make yourself richer than even the owner of SpaceX. All these funds can go into the Starfield best weapons or Starfield best armor of your choosing.

Here’s what you need to know.

How to perform the Starfield infinite money glitch on PC using console commands

You can use a console command for the Starfield infinite money glitch on PC. First, you’ll need to be relatively comfortable with inputting Starfield console commands. Not sure on how to do this? Check out our Starfield cheats and console commands guide over here.

  • In the game, tap the tilde (~) key on your keyboard. The game will pause, and you should see the console open up on the screen.
  • Next, type the following, exactly as we’ve written here:

player.additem 0000000f #

  • Then, replace the # with the amount of credits you want to give yourself. So for ten thousand credits, type 10000. For a hundred thousand, type 100000, and so on.)
  • You’ll find the money added to your inventory. Easy!

There are a few caveats, of course – using console commands is of course done at your own risk, and bear in mind using cheats will disable achievements on any save file that uses them. So as we mentioned, it may be best to do this on a separate save file to your main one.

How to perform the Starfield infinite money glitch on Xbox using console commands

Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there does not appear to be any way to perform the infinite money glitch on Xbox using the console. You can’t enter a cheat command for immortal mode or unlimited money. There’s no way to bring up the console commands using a console, so unless we hear otherwise we’d have to assume there’s no current way to activate cheats.

How to perform the Starfield vendor infinite money glitch on PC and Xbox

While it’s not technically infinite in the same way that simply using console commands to change how much money you have, YouTuber vNivara has come across an ingenious alternative. Similar to a popular glitch in other Bethesda games like Skyrim, you can use your Boost Pack to jump out of bounds and run around under the map in New Atlantis. From here, you can head underneath vendors like Jemison Mercantile and Outland where you can find chests containing all of vendor’s inventory, with the Ship Services Technician containing a massive 72,000 credits.

Before you can perform this glitch, you’ll need to fulfil a couple of criteria. First, you’ll need at least Rank 2 in the Boost Pack Training Skill, as well as a boost pack with the ‘Power Boost Pack’ mod. You can either find one of these while out exploring, or attach the mod yourself at a workbench. 

According to vNivara’s instructions, you should head to the Commercial District of New Atlantis. You can boost over the waterfall, and fall through a gap in the map along the ledge, coming out near a chest beneath Terrabrew Once under the map, it’s a simple matter of looting all of the vendor’s chests, and filling your pockets with their many credits. 

For a better idea of how to pull this off, take a look at vNivara’s video below to get a better idea of how it’s done.

Once you’ve looted all of the chests, you’ll need to fast travel back up top and find a seat or a bed, and rest for 48 hours in order to refresh all of the credits in the chests. You can repeat this method every 48 hours to get infinite credits, so simply do it as many times as you need to.

If you would rather earn your money the good, honest old-fashioned way, but you’re having trouble obtaining moolah, check out our Starfield credits and how to make money guide. This includes using a digipick to lockpick chests and using the commerce skill to influence item prices for NPCs. Contraband items from pirates are quite the rage but stealing from them is practically asking for bounties on your head. Mission boards also let you rack up credits and loot by helping all the Starfield factions like Constellation.

For more on the game, check out our tips and tricks for some handy advice. For ship upgrades, take a loot at our ship manufacturers, best ships, best ship parts, best reactors and starship weapons guides. For shopping, we have all the New Atlantis shops, Neon shops, and Akila City shops listed. And for materials for upgrades, we have guides on how to get adhesive, lubricant, adaptive frames, high tensile spidroin and microsecond regulators too.
