How to Pay Off Your Bounty in Starfield

Stop right there, criminal scum!

You’ve done the unthinkable in Starfield: you broke the law, and now you have bounty to pay off. Sure, causing mayhem and destruction was fun while it lasted, but it’d be nice to land without being dogged by every UC security guard. Find a place to lay low for now, at least until we teach you how to pay off your bounty in Starfield.

How to Clear Your Bounty After Committing a Crime in Starfield

In any major city, especially bars, you’ll come across a Trackers Alliance Self-Service Bounty Clearance kiosk. Using one allows you to clear your bounty without interacting with the authorities.

You’ll find bounty clearance kiosks at any of these locations:

  • The Viewport: Found in New Atlantis, Jemison, at the back of the bar. It’s owned by the United Colonies.
  • The Hitching Post: Located in Akila City, Akila. As you enter the city, the bar is on your right. The Freestar Collective owns this one.
  • The Broken Spear: Found in Cydonia, Mars. Stick to the right as you enter the mining facility. The United Colonies own this kiosk.
  • The Astral Lounge: Located in Neon, Volii Alpha. You’ll find the kiosk just as you enter the Astral Lounge. This one is owned by the Freestar Collective.

There’s but one little snag to be aware of. If, say, you’re wanted by the United Colonies, you can’t pay off your bounty at a kiosk owned by that faction. You’d have to use one within Freestar Collective territory.

This brings up an interesting dilemma: What if you went all Han Solo on the galaxy and are wanted by multiple factions? If you’re constantly unloading contraband, it’s not that hard.

You’ll want to craft your own Self-Service Bounty Clearance kiosk then. Pretty sweet, right? Maybe not for the authorities, and it enables your behavior, but it’s your playthrough!

Simply jump to a star system controlled by a different faction in Starfield and pay off your bounty that way. Just make sure you don’t have a bounty elsewhere by visiting the starmap and looking in the top-right corner. Now get out of here, scamp!
