Starfield Tech Skills

Tech Skills are special Starfield Skills that will make you better with various Starship systems and Robots. Skills in Starfield are divided in NoviceAdvancedExpert and Master Tier! To unlock a skill you will have to spend a skill point. Skill points are rewarded every time you level up. You need to invest a few skill points first before you can unlock higher Tiers of skills. You can also rank up every skill up to Rank 4. To Rank up a skill, you will have to complete a challenge, related to the skill.
