Spacesuits are your main line of defense against enemies and harsh environments in Starfield. Modifying them can be key in enhancing your survivability or even giving you a tactical edge. But to do so, you’ll need access to a spacesuit workbench, and you’ll likely want to get some ranks in the Spacesuit Design skill. But finding these spacesuit upgrade bench locations can be tricky in Starfield, so let’s track down a workbench in each major area for you!

One of the first locations to conveniently find a spacesuit workbench in Starfield is in the basement at The Lodge in New Atlantis. Starfield has fewer spacesuit upgrade workbenches than weapon benches, but there are a select few you can find that will make life easier for you. You can also randomly encounter them at various outposts and stations you encounter in your exploration.

The nearest alternative is in Akila City in the Cheyenne System, directly visible from the entrance of Shepherd’s General Store in the middle of the city.

Additionally, depending on the ship you have, you can access it from the interior.
