Every Faction Quest in Starfield

Which faction will you join first?

With an expansive game world to explore, numerous star systems, and a wide selection of factions to enlist with, Starfield offers countless playthrough possibilities. In all, you’ll find four key factions, if we’re not counting Constellation, including Crimson Fleet, UC Vanguard, Freestar Rangers, and Ryujin Industries. They each fit a different style and purpose in the world. At the end of the day, you’ll likely only opt for one per playthrough, so knowing what quests they include makes sense. Here is every faction quest in Starfield.

All Faction Quests in Starfield

Which of the four main factions in Starfield will you join first? Personally, I started with the Freestar Rangers, then Crimson Fleet, and finally UC Vanguard and Ryujin Industries. Each of them has a slew of unique quests, many of them rather enticing and exciting, to complete for sweet rewards.

UC Vanguard

The UC Vanguard is the good-alignment faction. A military force based out of New Atlantis, the UC Vanguard dispatches patrols and squads to deal with threats to the United Colonies, including Spacers, Crimson Fleet, and Terrormorphs.
