Players have discovered one of the best ways to farm infinite credits in Starfield by exploiting a glitch at the Stroud-Eklund Staryard.

Usually, gaining credits in Starfield can feel like a bit of a grind as the only ‘official’ way of doing so without glitch exploits is through completing missions and trading goods.

Pretty early on, you’ll come across a variety of gear, weapons, and ships that have amazing stats, but cost a pretty penny.

Thankfully, the Stroud-Eklund Staryard glitch will grant you access to a huge amount of credits in a very short amount of time, allowing you to splurge your cash to your heart’s content.

How to Get Unlimited Credits Using Stroud-Eklund Staryard Glitch

To get unlimited credits using the Starfield Stroud-Eklund Staryard glitch, you’ll need to head to the Stroud-Eklund Staryard located in the Narion system. Next, head to the room that showcases different ship parts and clip through the wall.

After carefully running to the edge of the far wall, use your Boostpack to access the vendor chest floating beneath the map area and gain 160,000 credits. Then, you can travel to Venus on the Sol system, wait 6 hours, and repeat this process to gain unlimited credits in Starfield!

To perform this unlimited credits glitch in Starfield, you will need to have:

  • At least one skill point in Boost Pack Training
  • A Boostpack
    • Do not use a Power Boostpack – the thrust is too high and makes getting to the chest far too difficult
    • We recommend a Balanced Boostpack as it provides a good mix of power and maneuverability

Follow these steps to perform the Stroud-Eklund Staryard glitch for unlimited credits in Starfield:

  1. Head to the Stroud-Eklund Staryard within the Narion system in Starfield

  1. From the platform, walk in-between the rope barrier and red ship part object to wall glitch and clip through the wall
    • The ‘collision’ of the rope barrier is what helps you clip through the wall to the other side
    • This may take a few attempts to pull off – you’ll get a feel for the right placement with each try

    • This is where your Boostpack comes in handy – use it to boost back up to the ledge after falling
    • You can vault back onto the ledge while aiming at it

How to Reset the Stroud-Eklund Staryard Vendor in Starfield and Farm Unlimited Credits

To farm unlimited credits at the Stroud-Eklund Staryard, you need to reset the vendor by heading over to Venus in the Sol system and sleep for at least 6 hours on your ship.

Then, head back to the Stroud-Eklund Staryard and repeat the glitch to keep gaining 160,000 credits on each successful attempt!

It’s important to note that the Staryard vendor’s stock will not reset if you wait 48 hours like most other vendors in Starfield. It requires at least 600 UT hours to reset.

As 1 LT hour equals 100 UT hours on Venus, you only have to wait 6 hours in total while on Venus for the vendor to reset at the Stroud Eklund Staryard.

  1. To repeat this glitch, head to Venus in the Sol system
    • It’s located to the southwest of the Narion system
