How to Discover and Unlock Planet Traits in Starfield
Planet traits cannot be discovered from the outside. You have to first visit the planet. Once you are on the planet, walk around and look for something that looks abnormal or unique. These can be anything from the fauna lifeforms to the strange flora. After you have discovered something like that, take out your Scanner. Press F for PC and LB for Controller to get the Scanner.
You can move while holding the Scanner. The movement you land on something unexplored, you will see “Unexplored Biological Feature“, “Unexplored Geology Feature“, “Unexplored Ecological Feature” or something similar. Press E to Scan and add the trait in planet details.
A planet usually has 0-3 traits. And a number of traits are visible in the planet’s details. But they have question marks on them before you discover them. The best way to find traits is by exploring different sides of the planet. You can first explore the north and look at different biomes, or you can land on the south and look for biomes of that part.
