So if you are wondering how to put that weapon you are equipped with back, here is a guide you should check out further.

Players can sheathe their weapon and holster it by pressing the reload key on both the keyboard and controller in Starfield. For the Xbox controller, players can hit the default X button to get rid of their weapon. While pressing R on the keyboard will help you do just that. Players can get the weapon back in their hands by pressing the left or right mouse button to aim or by hitting the X button on the Xbox again.

It is worth keeping in mind, that you don’t have to holster your weapon at every possible instance you see a guard on any planet. Most of the time, all of the NPCs will ignore the weapon in the game. However, visiting a system controlled by a specific faction that approved a bounty on your head is where things get changed. The guards will be hostile towards players if they have a high enough bounty.  Although, you should avoid aiming weapons at such situations even if they are not. For players looking to surrender or pay the fine, holster your weapon before approaching the guard in Starfield.
