Starfield – How To Find Adrastos In The Starjacker Mission


The June update in Starfield has delivered a plethora of new content to the Settled Systems. One major part of that content is the new Trackers Alliance missions, which can be completed after joining the bounty-hunting faction. The first mission you can accept for the Trackers Alliance is called The Starjacker, which involves you hunting down a criminal named Hannibal. However, in order to find Hannibal, you first need to locate a man named Adrastos, who supposedly knows where the criminal is hiding.

You are tasked with locating Adrastos using the new bounty hunter scanning system in Starfield. However, the NPC still isn’t easy to find even with the scanner, so look at the guide below to see where Adrastos is located.

After going through the Trackers Alliance HQ and meeting with Agent No. 1, you and your new partner Roach set out to find Adrastos. Roach says the informant is wandering the streets of Akila City and tells you to use the bounty-scanner to identify the target. To use the bounty-scanner, simply press the normal keybind for your scanner that you would use when looking for resources on a planet. With the scanner out, hover over different people you see in the world.

When the target you’re looking for gets caught in your crosshairs, they’ll be outlined in red. When hovering over a red target, you can see their name and their bounty on the screen. You want to have your scanner open the entire time when looking for Adrastos, otherwise the quest won’t progress if you happen to find him.

With your scanner out, you need to head to the right from the Trackers Alliance HQ. Adrastos is normally located directly behind The Rock bar on the eastern side of Akila City. I found Adrastos leaning up against a wall right near the tarped area of the city, as you can see in the map screenshot below. However, depending on how long it takes you to find Adrastos, he may move to a different area. After reloading a few saves, though, Adrastos never drifted too far from the location on the map below.

If you’re having no luck finding Adrastos in this area, I suggest reloading a save from inside the Trackers Alliance HQ and trying the mission again. It’s also important to remember to always have your scanner open when trying to identify Adrastos.

After finding him, you can now interrogate Adrastos with Roach. There are some clever lines of dialogue in this conversation, but the main goal of the exchange is to make Adrastos tell you where Hannibal and the Chop Shop are.
