Starfield is a game that truly lets you run loose. There is no limit to where you can go or what you can do. Do you want to destroy some ships? Just head into space and do it. Do you want to buy a house? Then go ahead and do the same. But what about renaming weapons? This isn’t a very essential customization option that developers like to add to their games. But Bethesda, the developers of Starfield, did include this unique feature for the players to offer a truly immersive customization experience. But how can you do it?
Customizing a weapon is another thing, but it can never be truly yours when it uses a name that has been set by someone else. That’s why you, as a player, should also be eager to rename it with some cool names like “Thunder Blaster” or “Atomic Splasher”. Also, since the default weapon names are quite weird and complex, you might need to spend some time getting used to understanding which weapon is what. In that case, a simple and catchy name can be very helpful. That said, here’s how you can rename weapons in Starfield.
Starfield: How to rename Weapons
Renaming weapons may sound complex, but little do you know that it’s much easier than you think. Most games do not even come close to offering such customization options as Starfield does. Why? Well, didn’t you know that it was made by none other than Bethesda itself? So, such unique options are a given. Anyway, let’s discuss the process now:
Find a Weapon Workbench
Well, you probably have used a workbench for quite some time now. It can be found in The Lodge in New Atlantis, or you can even craft one on your ship. Well, they can also be found inside some outposts that you have been to. So, to rename your weapon, the first thing you need is a weapon workbench. Well, finding one shouldn’t be that big of a deal. The workbench can be used to modify your existing weapon, adding or upgrading parts as you go.
Pick your weapon
The second most important thing is your weapon. After finding the workbench, you must first decide which weapon you should rename. If it is inside your ship’s cargo or in the storage of an outpost, then it’s time to find it and add it to your character’s inventory. This is because the weapon workbench only shows the weapons that are currently in your character’s inventory.
Now that you have both your weapon and your workbench, it’s time for some action. Interact with the workbench, and it’ll open a screen showing all your weapons that are either in your inventory, ship cargo, or nearest outpost. Now scroll and highlight the weapon of your choice. Then, look in the bottom-right corner of your screen. You will see three options: modify, rename, and exit. There will be a key or button assigned to each option. For PCs, it’s the B key that is assigned to the rename option. So press that, and a text box will appear. Now, simply type whatever name you want it to have, then press enter. That’s it; now your weapon has its own name, given by you.
After you have learned how to rename weapons in Starfield, it’s about time to change the name of every single one of them. Try keeping them simple or extremely unique so that you can find them without any issues. That said, we hope you find this guide informative.
