Starfield, Bethesda’s biggest game launch of all time, has been embraced by players with over six million copies sold in less than a week. Some players are already pushing the game’s limits by developing mods and speedrunning it. One player, Morfalath, has found a new way to break the game by building a ship that enemies can’t figure out how to hit consistently.
Morfalath discovered that the enemy AI targets the center of the ship. By building a spacecraft that is essentially a hollow cube with a few missing edges, they created what they claim is an “unbeatable ship.” In a video of a dogfight, the unusual ship is hit by a few stray shots, but its butt-ugly design appears to outfox even high-level enemies.
While Xbox executives claimed that Starfield would be Bethesda’s least buggy game launch ever, players have discovered a number of strange glitches. Some characters have missing heads, while others rudely butt into conversations. While Starfield’s launch wasn’t as disastrous as Cyberpunk 2077’s, some of the bugs are still quite amusing.
Here are some additional thoughts on the topic:
- It’s interesting to see how the enemy AI works in Starfield. By targeting the center of the ship, it’s trying to hit the most important components, such as the engines and weapons. However, Morfalath’s ship has no center of mass, so the AI’s aim is thrown off.
- It’s also impressive to see how creative Starfield players are. Morfalath’s ship is a testament to the game’s ship customization system, which allows players to create unique and effective vessels.
- While the bugs in Starfield are mostly harmless, they can still be annoying. Bethesda has already released a few patches to fix some of the most critical bugs, and I’m sure they’ll continue to work on fixing the rest.
Overall, I’m very happy with Starfield so far. It’s a great game with a lot of potential, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for it. I’m also excited to see what other creative ship designs players come up with.
