Robotics is a valuable skill in Starfield that allows you to deal additional damage to robots and turrets and take control of robot enemies. When you take control of the robots, you can have them attack their allies, flee, or shut off temporarily. To level Robotics, you need to destroy robots. This guide will cover the best locations to destroy robots and level up Robotics fast in Starfield.

The best places to destroy robots in Starfield are enemy bases found on planets. Many planets in the game have enemy bases, and many of them are abandoned and only consist of robot enemies. Considering the planets are procedurally generated, and enemy bases can change, it is hard to inform you of an exact location. That said, I had the best luck exploring Venus in the Sol Star System.

When you land on a planet, open your scanner and head towards the symbol that says “unknown.” This usually leads to an enemy base, and there is a high chance that it will be filled with robot and turret enemies.

Once you find a base that has a ton of robots, you can destroy all the robots, rest for 24 to 48 hours, and return to have the enemies respawn. Repeat this process until you have destroyed the required 80 robots to reach rank 4 of the Robotics skill.

It shouldn’t take you a long time to find an enemy base that works for this method. If you continue struggling to find robots, playing through side quests and main missions is your next best bet. Many missions will lead you to combat sequences against robots and turrets, allowing you to level up Robotics naturally.
