It is not mandatory to join a faction, but you definitely should. Doing so will provide a lot of benefits and missions to your game, and each faction has its own theme and message. Let’s check everything you need to know about factions in this article.


What Are Factions In Starfield?

A faction is a group or organization of people that fight for the same belief and cause. You will run into these organizations whether you plan to or not. Factions provide quests and rewards.

The purpose of joining a faction is to delve more into the story, side quests, and to try and collect as many experience points and weapons as you can. Each faction has its own beliefs that tie into questlines, such as focusing on exploration or focusing on blackmailing.

You can get unique rewards from completing faction quests that you would otherwise not be able to acquire.

How To Join A Faction

There are seven factions you can join in Starfield. Joining a faction is completely optional. To do so, you must find their headquarters and speak to the person in charge.

Each faction occupies space on different planets. You will have to travel to different stars to find them all.

Not every faction can actually be joined. You can only become a part of five of the seven major factions in Starfield.

Joinable Factions

Constellation

Planet Jemison in the Alpha Centauri system.

Committed to exploration and discovery.


Constellation is one of the first organizations you come across. You are basically forced into this faction as part of the main story. Their quests involve exploring unfound territories.

Ryujin Industries

Planet Volii Alpha in the Volii system.

A major corporation that is interested in increasing its sales and name.


This faction can be seen as a selfish organization. Their quests involve sabotaging their competitors. You can find an advertisement to join them on a terminal in Jemison.

Freestar Collective

Planet Akila in the Cheyenne system.

A Western-themed group that puts the law into their own hands.


Freestar Collective has quests where you play a sheriff in a good-for-nothing town or something of that nature. The quest rewards for this faction are Western-themed, such as a Deadeye pistol.

United Colonies

Planet Jemison in the Alpha Centauri system.

Military-based excursions.


United Colonies focus more on security, control, and protection of the public. If you want to become a security guard or part of the army, this faction will explore that.

Crimson Fleet

The Key in the Kryx system.

A morally gray league of pirates.


If you want to deal with the bad guys, but not be a part of a corporate scheme, Crimson Fleet is your faction. Crimson Fleet is essentially a group of pirates and felons hiding out on an old prison station in space.

Can You Join Multiple Factions At Once In Starfield?

The short answer is, yes. Bethesda has made it so that you can join every single joinable faction if you want. There are no negative repercussions to doing so. You actually should if you are a completionist.

Joining multiple factions will give you plenty to do within the game aside from the regular questline and other side quests unrelated to factions. You will have to visit all of the planets eventually, might as well join the different planets factions as well.
