  • There are more than 1000 and 100 Planets and systems in GTA 5, respectively.
  • It is highly recommended to have an Outpost on Zamkaand Andraphon.


Best Outpost for Early-Game.

Andraphon Outpost Locations Starfield

Why did I Choose Andraphon?

Andraphon is not inhabitable and is rather gloomy. It should only be used as an outpost for farm materials. 

The Andraphon is the best early-game location. You need to set up your Outpost on Adraphone, the moon of the Planet Sumati, to farm the essential materials such as BerylliumIronHelium-3Aluminium, and Europium.


Best Outpost for Farming Resources.

Why did I Choose Nesoi?

The Nesoi is a planet found in the Olympus Star System. The Planet contains many hills, mountains, and forests. It contains abundant resources of every kind.

You can easily find resources like IrioumTantalum, and Benzene on this Planet. In addition, rare resources like IronUranium, and Argon are also available. 

Eridani Vii-C

Best Aluminum Outpost.

Eridani VIII-c Outpost Locations Starfield

Why did I Choose Eridani VIII-c?

The Eridani Vii-C is a moon in the Eridani star system. This moon features the following resources: TungstenTitaniumWaterHelium-3AluminumEuropiumLead, and Uranium.

It is not viable to build a house here as the water is intoxicated. Instead, you can use this Outpost as a storage and extraction point.


Easily Accessible Outpost.

Why did I Choose Kreet?

The Kreet found in the Narion System is a moon orbiting Planet Anselon. Since I visited the planet at least once throughout the playthrough, I highly recommend it because of its accessibility and resourcefulness. 

The Kreet has Water, Argon, Alkanes, Neon, Lead, Silver, Iron, and Helium-3.  At the start of the game, players can also find weapon upgrades on this moon.

Tau Ceti VIII-b

Best Tantalum Outpost.

Why did I Choose Tau Ceti VIII-b?

This is the optimum crafting materials location found in the Tau Ceti system. It contains the rare resource Tantalum, which is very useful in crafting weapons. This moon also contains IronArgonChlorosilanesAluminum, and Chlorine.

In my experience, the moon is unsuitable for living purposes or storage space as it is far from the main cities. You can use this Outpost to constantly farm crafting materials and return here whenever you need to craft something.

Linnaeus IV-b

Best Outpost for Farming Crafting Material.

Linnaeus IV-b Outpost Locations Starfield

Why did I Choose Linnaues IV-b?

The Linnaues IV-b contains the same resources as Androphan, Alkanes, and Ytterbium

It is an excellent location for an early outpost, as the resources available are used to construct further outposts. The Linnaeus IV-b is ideal for farming crafting materials but not for living or storage. 

There are no creatures on this moon that might attack you. In addition, due to the Planet’s high level, it’s best to avoid abandoned mines and other points of interest.

Schrodinger III

Most Beautiful Outpost.

Why did I Choose Schrodinger III?

It is one of the two Planets on the list solely for its scenic landscapes. The Schrodinger III is a planet found in the Schrodinger system. This Planet has lush green grass and beautiful nature and mountains.

A word of warning: Most of the creatures on the planet are highly hostile. You can use this Planet to farm XP by killing all the creatures. 

Leviathan IV

Best Outpost for Iron and Aluminum.

Why did I Choose Leviathan IV?

On Leviathan IV, you can find WaterAluminumCopperChlorineIronFluorine, and Ytterbium, thus making it ideal for the outpost.

The Ytterbium is a rare resource and challenging to find. You must set up your outpost to farm these resources constantly.  You can find overlapping resources and farm them in many areas simultaneously.


Best Outpost With Climate.

Why did I Choose Jemison?

It has ideal weather conditions and many characters, which helps you trade your resources and upgrade materials.

The Jemison planet has many resources: ArgonChlorosilanesChlorineLead, and Water. It can get you started with optimum conditions. 


Best Helium-3 Outpost.

Zamka Outpost Locations Starfield
Zamka / Creds: Gamesual

Why did I Choose Zamka?

The Zamka, also found in the Alpha Centauri system, is a moon of Olivas. It is the best Planet for valuable resources, enriched with Waterhelium-3IronNickelCopperCobaltUranium, and Vanadium.

The Uranium and Vandium on the list are rare resources, respectively. The Zamka has many resources, making finding the best spot to farm multiple resources simultaneously challenging. You would not find beautiful landscapes here, unlike Hyla II or Schrodinger III.

My Picks Of Outpost

As an extensive Starfield player, I found the best outpost locations for me were Andraphon, Zamka, and Jemison. Having built bases on all three planets, I can say from experience that Andraphon is crucial for farming crafting materials to construct other outposts. Zamka has been invaluable for mining rare resources like uranium and vanadium.

Jemison has ideal conditions as a starter planet, with great weather, resources, and proximity to major trade cities. These three planets have proven to be my top outpost location picks based on the resources needed and advantages offered after traveling the Starfield universe.
