All Legendary Ships in Starfield

Fly through the stars like a legend in the making!

Before Starfield ever released to the public, we knew it featured an extensive ship customization suite to build absolute monstrosities like a flying platypus ship. But to learn that legendary ships exist in Starfield, and they’re actually pretty sweet to fly and collect, takes this role-playing game to another level. Here’s how to get legendary ships in Starfield.

Starfield Legendary Ships You Can Get

Despite Starfield’s massive size, there are only a handful of legendary ships that you can fly in the game. They’re scarce, requiring the player to endure tough challenges, like boss fights, deep exploration, and lengthy side quests, to unlock. Is it worth it? Yes, absolutely!

The list of legendary ships that you can fly in Starfield includes:

The Narwhal

A versatile end-game ship that excels in almost every aspect, as it should with its extremely high price tag, the Narwhal is a powerful ship capable of moving a ton of cargo long distances in a single jump. For such benefits, expect to pay 455,000 credits. You can buy it from Veronica at Taiyo Astroneering in Neon.

The Razorleaf (Mantis Ship)

The Mantis, known as The Razorleaf, is a unique ship reward for completing the “Secret Outpost” slate quest looted from a dead Spacer at random. It’s quite the reward, providing ample storage space, multiple high-powered weapons, a Shielded Cargo Hold, and an impressive Grav Drive.

To acquire Razorleaf, you must pick up the specified slate, then travel to the base and fight through the enemies and puzzles designed to stop anyone from taking the ship or Mantis Armor.

How to Get Legendary Ships in Starfield

There are numerous methods to find and collect the legendary Starfield ships, including exploration, questing, and spending hard-earned credits to buy one.


There is much to see and do in Starfield, which is why exploration plays a significant role in the various quests. As you venture through the stars, you’ll stumble upon navigation charts that point to lost legendary starships. You’ll want to follow these charts to find your reward.

Alternatively, as you jump into a new system, there’s always the chance for an event or quest to pop up, which may provide you with a ship as a reward.

Quest Rewards

Quite a few of the previously-mentioned legendary ships come about as quest rewards, including The Mantis and The Pilgrim.

To unlock The Pilgrim, for example, you must complete the faction questline for the Crimson Fleet. Upon completing their story, you’ll unlock the ability to purchase The Pilgrim. Yes, that’s right. It’s not free. You need to spend credits.

As for The Mantis, that one is completely free. To acquire Razorleaf, you must follow the slate “Secret Outpost” to a distant planet where you’ll find a hidden base filled with enemies to defeat. After moving through the facility, clearing each area, and getting past the robotic sentries, you’ll find The Mantis starship and armor set at the end. Both are entirely free. Here’s our in-depth guide on how to get the Razorleaf in Starfield.

Buying a Ship

If all else fails, there are some ships you can purchase. Many unique faction vendors will sell you a legendary ship if you progress far enough in their factory storyline. As mentioned before, this is true of Crimson Fleet, who will sell The Pilgrim.

Unfortunately, the cost for such ships is typically relatively high. You’ll need potentially hundreds of thousands of credits to buy one.

Starfield Legendary Ships to Battle

During your journey throughout the Settled Systems, you will inevitably stumble upon high-end legendary ships from the major villain factions in the game. You cannot steal or fly these ships, unfortunately, only do battle with them.

There are three in total: Ecliptic Battleship Camulus, Va’ruun Shroudbreaer, and Spacer Scavenger Blattodea.

To find these legendary ships, which spawn randomly, keep an eye on your star system map for the “ship” icon. They’re unnamed until you jump nearby, sadly.

Ecliptic Battleship Camulus in Starfield

As one of the toughest ships in the entire game, with more hull health points than both the Va’ruun Shroudbearer and Spce Scavenger Blattodea combined, the Ecliptic Battleship Camulus reigns supreme. It’s tough to take down, but with an excess of particle beam turrets, you should stand a fighting chance. After all, you’re smaller and faster, so use hit-and-run tactics.

The Camulus often spawns randomly in the following systems:

  • Alpha Centauri
  • Eridani
  • Hyla
  • Procyon A
  • Olympus
  • Ophion
  • Volii

Va’ruun Shroudbearer in Starfield

The Va’ruun Shroudbearer is a floating mystery, like the homeworld of this serpent-worshipping rabble, but it’s the strongest mystery we’ve come across. It doesn’t have any shields but does fight alongside fighter ships, which use fast hit-and-run tactics to eat up your time.

You can’t board this legendary ship, so focus efforts on its hull by using missile and ballistic weaponry. Before that, however, we recommend taking down its fighters first.

You can find Va’ruun Shroudbearer randomly in the following systems:

  • Denebola
  • Nikola
  • Nirah
  • Maal

Space Scavenger Blattodea in Starfield

With a mouthful of a name, the Space Scavenger Blattodea wields an arsenal of weaponry, including small fighter craft that pack a punch, but has no shield to speak of. As such, you can bombard it with missiles and ballistic weaponry to deal a ton of damage. Just don’t get hit. Seriously, its weapons are some of the strongest in the game.

Unlike the other legendary ships, once you defeat Blattodea, you’ll wind up with a ton of loot from its cargo hold.

You can find Space Scavenger Blattodea randomly in the following systems:

  • Alpha Centauri
  • Arcturus
  • Procyon A
  • Wolf
