How to use the boost pack in Starfield

Gamersadmin September 1, 2023

In Starfield, one of your primary pieces of gear is your pack — a your backpack oxygen tank thing that has different buffs and effects on it. Notably, some packs come with “boost packs” on them, which sounds like a jetpack but is essentially just a glorified double-jump.

How to use the boost pack in Starfield

You can only use the boost pack in Starfield with the Boost Pack Training skill. If you don’t take this skill, your pack a regular ol’ backpack oxygen tank thing with buffs.

After taking at least one rank of Boost Pack Training in the Tech skill tree, you can start boosting by pressing jump twice while in your space suit. You can only boost if you have at least one rank of this skill.

At higher ranks, the boost pack will use consume less fuel and regenerate its faster. Fuel isn’t a real tangible resource that you have to fill or find — it just regenerates quickly over time when you’re not using it.

Where to find boost packs in Starfield

You can find packs with the “basic boost pack” ability in tons of different places. You get the Constellation Pack (which has basic boost pack functionality) as a reward for completing early main quests. We also found a ton of packs with the basic boost pack ability from just looting space pirates and other baddies pretty soon after starting the game.

You can check on your packs by opening your inventory, selecting the Packs submenu, and then hovering over each to see which has boost pack abilities. Note that not every pack has the ability to be used as a boost pack.
