In Starfield, different backgrounds and traits offer unique dialogue options throughout the Settled Systems, but one that has gone viral with fans is an extrovert choice that lets you gaslight a patrolling guard.

EarlGrey_Picard was apprehended by a gun-happy UC officer who said, “There’s been word of suspicious behaviour, from someone matching your description”. Typically, you’d persuade your way out of the altercation or attack them, creating an unnecessary bloodbath. Extroverts, however, can be toddlers about it and “nuh-uh” their way to safety.

“I don’t match the description. You match the description,” the player responds. “No, you match the description,” the UC officer says. This goes back and forth for a bit as the officer gets increasingly pissed off until the player character says that the two must be twins. The UC officer’s voice breaks, “We look nothing alike”. He then accuses the player of being the intruder again, to which they respond, “I’m an intruder? Takes one to know one.”

Pissed off, the UC officer tries to get back on track, but with the extrovert option, you can play up that you must be twins since he obviously looks like the description. All of which ends in the distraught officer being too confused to remember what’s going on. All it takes to avoid being caught and complete the quest is some minor gaslighting and slight trolling. Sorry unnamed UC officer #1,002.

This happened during a Crimson Fleet quest in which you sneak on board a UC ship, The Key, to steal the prototype Comspike.

Throughout this quest, you can find outfits and key cards that let you access different areas without suspicion, such as the ensign uniform. That’s why the UC officer refers to the player as ‘ensign’ during the clip.

However, if you’re wearing the wrong uniform, you can get caught, and in this case, the player should have been wearing the pilot outfit. If they had that on, the officer would have left them alone, but as an extrovert, you can bluff your way out of the situation anyway.

“I regret choosing introvert so much,” owowowowowtoop said.

“Right?” TheJohnCandyValley replied. “Our unique dialogue choices are like, ‘[Introvert] Boy, I don’t like crowds, but okay I’ll take the job.’ And then you take the job.”

There are a few other dialogue options like this extrovert one sprinkled throughout the Settled Systems, but if you now want to see them, you’ll have to start over again. Unless you jump into the console (which is only on PC) to remake your character or find a mod.
