Starfield has a settlement-building feature similar to games like Fallout 4, where you can craft workbenches, furniture, weapons, and other valuable items for your journey. However, you will need specific materials to craft these items. One such material is the Zero Wire, which can become annoyingly frustrating to obtain during the game’s early stages. However, we have pinpointed the most accessible locations to get Zero Wire in Starfield, including buying and crafting it so you can obtain enough to craft whatever you want.
