How To Store Items On Ship (Cargo Hold) In Starfield

Your Cargo Hold is an important part if you are an item hoarder. Here's how you can store items on ship in Starfield.

Starfield players can store items on their ship once they access the Cargo Hold. It certainly is the best way to store extra items you picked up unless of course you decide to sell items quickly. While you can increase carrying capacity, your inventory is not enough to hold the random loot that you can get when you board and loot a ship. So, the best way is to access the ship’s storage and keep some items there for later use. In this guide, we will show you how to access the Cargo Hold and store the items on your ship.

  • Board your ship and head to the cockpit area and look for a small screen that reads Cargo Hold. Once you interact with it, you can then toggle between Inventory and Ship Storage to view what you have in your Cargo Hold. Do not that this might change if you buy or use a new ship.
