How to find the Wolf System in Starfield

To find the Wolf System in the expansive universe of Starfield, the first step is to pinpoint its exact location. The good news is that you don't have to go through any extra trouble for this task. The Wolf System is conveniently situated near Alpha Centauri, Sol, and Narion, three of the major Star Systems you'll visit constantly. This makes it easy to locate.

Now, coming to the question of how to reach it. Open the star map, you can do so by pressing the Tab on the keyboard. Once you have the map view opened, you will see the Wolf Star System, upper right to Alpha Centauri and below Narion.

To initiate the jump to the Wolf System, you need to take a few steps. First, locate the Wolf System on your map and select it as your destination. Once you've done that, press and hold the 'X' key. This action will activate the jump, and you'll find yourself on your way to the Wolf System.

Additionally, it's important to note that you can't perform the jump to the Wolf System until you're close enough to it. You can initiate the jump from Alpha Centauri, Narion, or Sol, and there might be other similar systems in some cases. To overcome this limitation, simply jump to the nearby system first and then proceed gradually to your desired destination. It also depends on your ship's grav jump capabilities.


When you arrive at the Wolf System, you'll come across The Den, which is a sizeable spacecraft. Inside The Den, you'll find The Trade Authority counter, which can be considered a haven for smugglers. Here, you can purchase and trade contraband items, making it a lucrative spot for those involved in less-than-legal activities within the game.
