Starfield Shieldbreaker Ship Location

Luckily for you, the Shieldbreaker is actually really easy to find in Starfield. Most Ship Service Technicians in high-population areas can have one in stock. You can purchase one at any of these locations:

  • New Atlantis: Located in the Alpha Centauri system, on Jemison, where The Lodge is stationed.
  • Red Mile: Located in the Porrima system, on Porrima III. Start at Alpha Centauri and head east to find the star.
  • The Key: A space station located in the Kryx system, orbiting Suvorov. You’ll need to join the Crimson Fleet if you want to purchase the Shieldbreaker ship from them.
  • Akila City: Located in the Cheyenne system, on Akila. From Alpha Centauri, head northeast towards Narion, and head northeast again.
  • Cydonia: Located in the Sol system, on Mars. It’s neighbors to Alpha Centauri.

Out of these options, I recommend New Atlantis. Even though the ship technician’s stock can change, there’s never been a time I haven’t seen it for sale on Jemison. It’ll cost you 280000 Credits, so bring your piggybank. If you joined the UC Vanguard, and earned citizenship, you’ll get a citizen’s discount! In the event you aren’t as lucky as me, gfind a place to wait 48 in-game hours and check again.

Should You Buy the Shieldbreaker Ship in Starfield?

Well, it depends on where you’re at in Starfield. Before you can even fly the ship, you need at least Class B clearance, which means investing three whole skill points into the Piloting skill. You should be doing that, anyway. If you have the money, I’d say go for it. The Shieldbreaker is a great combat ship with 2280 Cargo fresh off the lot and solid grav jump capabilities.

  • Reactor: 27 (B Class)
  • Jump: 22 LY
  • Shield: 610
  • LAS: 24
  • BAL: 28
  • MSL: 58
  • Crew Stations: 5
  • Cargo: 2280
  • Fuel: 550

Compared to a stock-level Frontier, you’re getting double the stats in most areas. The five crew stations is a pretty nice bonus since that means you can also stack companion bonuses for a more effective ship.

Well, folks, that’s how you get the Shieldbreaker ship in Starfield. It’s a really good ship for combat given its damage and defense, and equally good at hauling junk. For more content, check out the links below, like our Starfield review!
