How to Sell Contraband in Starfield

Contraband items in Starfield are illegal goods that can fetch a high price on the black market. However, selling them comes with the risk of being scanned and penalized. Knowing where and how to sell these items is essential for maximizing profit while minimizing risk.

1. Acquiring Contraband:

  • Board a pirate ship or explore various locations to find contraband items.
  • For this guide, we’ll assume you’ve boarded a pirate ship and found some valuable contraband.

2. Storing Contraband Safely:

  • Ensure your ship, such as the Frontier, has shielded cargo. This feature helps hide contraband from scans.
  • Transfer the contraband to your ship’s cargo hold. Access your inventory, select the contraband, and move it to your ship’s main storage.

3. Choosing the Right Location to Sell:

  • The Wolf system, particularly “The Den,” is known to be a safe place to sell contraband.
  • Navigate to the star map and set your course to The Den in the Wolf system.

4. Approaching The Den:

  • Once you arrive in the Wolf system, approach The Den.
  • Ensure you’re within 500 meters of The Den to dock. A dock option will appear, allowing you to safely land.

5. Selling the Contraband:

  • Once docked, explore The Den to find merchants or individuals willing to buy contraband.
  • Remember, while The Den is a safe place to sell contraband, it’s still controlled by UC. Ensure you don’t have any bounties on your head, or you might face hostility.

Tips for Successful Contraband Sales:

  • Stay Alert: Always be cautious when carrying contraband. Avoid systems where you might get scanned.
  • Know the Market: Some locations offer better prices for contraband. Research and find the best spots to maximize your profit.
  • Clear Bounties: Before entering any controlled space, ensure you don’t have any bounties on your head to avoid unwanted attention.

Selling contraband in Starfield is a high-risk, high-reward activity. By knowing the right places to sell and taking precautions, you can make a significant profit while exploring the vast cosmos.
