How To Get & Use Boost Pack (Jet Pack) in Starfield

Before you can use the jet packs in Starfield you need to get them. There are two methods that can help you easily complete this task.

Method 1: Follow the Main Questline

  • As you progress in the main story, you’ll learn about Constellation from Barret at Vectera.
  • Head to The Lodge in New Atlantis on the planet Jemison in the Alpha Centauri system.
  • Complete the objectives, show the artifact, and talk to Sarah Morgan.
  • She’ll invite you to join Constellation, and as a reward, you’ll receive the Constellation Pack, which includes a Jet Pack.

Method 2: Explore Planets and Loot

  • Another way to get a Jet Pack is by exploring different planets for vendors or looting enemy fleets.
  • While they might be rare to come by, various missions in the game may also help you obtain a Boost Pack.

How To Use a Starfield Boost Pack

Unlock Boost Pack Training

  • To use your Jet Pack, you need to unlock the Boost Pack Training skill in the Tech Skills Tree. It costs one skill point, so it’s a good idea to unlock it early in the game when you have the chance.
  • If you chose the Soldier background during character creation, Boost Pack Training will already be unlocked for you.

Equipping and Controls

  • Once you’ve unlocked the skill, equip the Jet Pack through your inventory.
  • To use the Jet Pack in Starfield, press the jump button while in the air. On Xbox, press the Y button; on a keyboard, press Space.
  • Keep an eye on the Fuel Bar on the right side of the screen; it indicates how much time you can use the Boost Pack.
  • You can upgrade the skill up to rank 4:
    • Rank 1: Unlock the use of Boost Pack.
    • Rank 2: Using the Boost Pack consumes less fuel.
    • Rank 3: Boost Pack fuel regenerates quickly.
    • Rank 4: Doubles all the previous bonuses.

Fix Starfield Boost Pack Not Working Issue (Jet Pack)

Boost Pack Training Perk not allocated

Most players who deal with Jet Pack or Boost Pack not working in Starfield are because they haven’t unlocked the Boost Pack Training Perk. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Tech Skill Tree.
  2. Find the Boost Pack Training Perk.
  3. Unlock at least level 1 (Rank 1) of this perk.

Once you’ve unlocked it, you can access and use the Boost Pack. But to get the most out of it, you should equip and upgrade it as much as you can. This way, it becomes even more powerful and useful in the game.

Those who opted for Soldier background boost pack perk will be automatically unlocked.

Get an Actual Boost Pack

Some players might face a problem because they haven’t equipped a real Boost Pack or Jet Pack in the game. These backpacks don’t have a booster function.

Here’s how you can fix it:

  1. Find or loot an actual Boost Pack in the game.
  2. When you equip it, it will be labeled as “Basic Boost Pack.”
  3. To use it, just double-jump and press the Y button on Xbox or the Space bar on PC.

If you’re still having trouble with the Boost Pack not working in Starfield, don’t worry; there’s another solution to try next.

Re-Load a Previous Save

If your Boost Pack used to work but suddenly stopped, it might be due to a bug or glitch in the game. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Load a saved game file where the Boost Pack was working fine.
  2. After loading the saved file, try using the Boost Pack again.

This should hopefully solve the problem with the Boost Pack not working in your game.
