Starfield Ryujin Industries Questline: All Missions & Rewards

The Ryujin Industries questline in Starfield is the most satisfying story arc to play if you’re a big fan of stealth. Every mission either involves you digipicking master locks to steal some legendary loot or pickpocketing your next victim.

The entire Ryujin Industries faction is straight-up an evil conglomerate that will ask you to do their bidding, kind of like a lesser evil version of Arasaka from Cyberpunk. Most of the missions within the Ryujin Industries questline will play out on-world, so you won’t be seeing much of outer space during them. Still, it’s one of the most fun plot threads you can follow in Starfield, and here’s how you jump right into it.

Starfield Ryujin Industries Questline

Activating the Ryujin Industries questline in Starfield is pretty simple, just send an application for an interview and hope you land the job. You can apply for a job at the company by locating a nearby kiosk. There’s one in New Atlantis in Jemison which you can find very early in the game. Just head over to it and follow the steps on the screen. This will mark the beginning of the questline and after the appropriate prompts, you’ll be asked to visit Ryujin’s headquarters. And if it wasn’t obvious already, stealth traits are really going to help.
