It's important to know how to remove Traits in Starfield if you're not happy with the ones you chose. Traits can affect the way you play Starfield, and you're forced to make a decision on which Traits you want at the start of the game.

For example, you might take the Extrovert Trait but find yourself exploring on your lonesome most of the time. If this is the case, you might be better off removing the Trait so you don't suffer the drawbacks.

If you end up disliking your Traits over time, you might want to get rid of them - here's how you can remove each trait in Starfield.

What are Traits in Starfield?

Traits are the special attributes you choose to give to your character in Starfield during character creation. You can choose up to three different traits, and each one comes with a benefit and a drawback of some kind.

For example, you can choose the Kid Stuff Trait and gain the ability to visit your parents at their home. However, the drawback is you'll have to pay them credits over time.

Unfortunately, there's no way to replace Traits with different ones, but you can use console commands if you're on PC and you don't mind a bit of cheating. Just bear in mind they will disable achievements as your save will be considered "modded".

If you want to remove your Traits, there are a lot of different ways to do it depending on the Trait you want to get rid of. Keep reading to find out how to remove each Trait in the game.
