The quickest way to gather Fiber is to visit a resource merchant, buy all their Fiber, and then use the ‘Wait’ function to skip ahead by 24 hours, refreshing the merchant’s inventory. Alternatively, consider visiting other merchants to exhaust their Fiber supplies.

In Starfield, the waiting process is effortless: just find a chair or bench to sit on. But, with the option of fast travel, it’s often more efficient to hop between different vendors for Fiber, especially when they’re located close to each other.

The following locations are where you can purchase Fiber in Starfield:

In Starfield, the four Constellation companions provide distinct gifts after spending enough time with you. Companions skilled in ‘Botany,’ like Sarah Morgan, often give organic resources such as Fiber as tokens of their journey together.

While receiving Fiber from companions is nice, this method may not be the most efficient for collecting it in bulk. The quantity provided is typically modest and comes from a common pool of various resources. Depending solely on a particular companion for Fiber could also limit your gameplay tactics and choices.

Loot Fiber from Storage Boxes and Other Containers

In the expansive Starfield universe, Fiber can be found in numerous ways. It’s located in storage containers, on fallen enemies, and dispersed across open areas like laboratories and crafting stations. Additionally, skilled pickpockets can acquire it through their craft.

Though this approach may not be the fastest way to gather large amounts of Fiber, it provides a no-cost alternative for gradual accumulation during your explorations. Staying alert for Fiber while adventuring can lead to a consistent, albeit small, supply.

Fiber Item ID in Starfield

Fiber’s Item ID is 000055AF. You can add Fiber to your inventory by typing the player.additem 000055AF console command or the player.additem 000055AF <amount> console command.
