    Starfield is such an expansive game that it can be difficult to know exactly where you want to put your skill points. Between the game’s five skill trees, it’s really no surprise. If you’re me, then you probably spread yourself a bit too thin and are wondering if respecting is a thing. I can tell you now, the answer is not so clean-cut. If you’re interested in respecing, then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s how you can reset your skill points.

    Can you respec in Starfield?

    From a legitimate gameplay perspective, you cannot respec in Starfield. The game is set up so that you can earn all of the skills in the game with enough experience. There is no known level cap, meaning that as long as you continue playing, you’ll be able to get the skills you want. I’m aware this isn’t always desirable though. After all, there are a significant amount of important mechanics locked behind some skills, and you probably weren’t aware of that going in. Sadly, it is too late to make a change once you’ve locked skills in. ,

    If you’re willing to beyond the normal game to change your skills, then you do have an option. For those of you who desire to get the skill you want at all costs, you can utilize a console command to add perks at your leisure:

    If you hit the tilde key on your keyboard, you can access the in-game console. Input the above command and replace Perk ID with the actual ID for the perk you desire. For your reference, here are all the perk IDs for all the Skills in Starfield:
