How Expensive is the Abyss Trekker in Starfield?

The Abyss Trekker costs a huge 340,000 credits in Starfield. It’s one of the most expensive ships in the game.

We recommend investing in your Commerce skill in the Social tree. When leveled up to Rank 4, you’ll get a 20% discount on all purchased goods, reducing the Abyss Trekker to a slightly more manageable 270,000 credits or so.

Where the Abyss Trekker truly shines is in its devastating firepower. It features Missiles, Particle Beams, and Ballistics weaponry with absurdly high damage numbers. It allows you to melt any opposing ship that comes your way.

The Abyss Trekker also has a respectable 27 max ship energy to play around with and more than decent Hull and Shield health. Though you’ll destroy enemy ships so fast, they likely won’t even scuff the paint.

The ship’s biggest drawback is its meager 340 cargo capacity. This is not one to dump your space junk in. It’s built for combat.
