Starfield docking guide: How to dock in Starfield

In order to dock in Starfield, you’re first going to have to be in your cockpit and in full control of your ship. You’re also going to have approval to dock. Once you have approval from wherever you’re going to land, you then have to target the place you’re trying to land.

You’re going to want to press LB, which will then target the ship or the space station. Once you’ve targetted, you’ll be able to press A to hail, or you can press X to dock.

After this, you’ll be able to attach the ship and then transition into the ship or the space station that you’ve docked onto.

If you’re looking to dock an enemy ship and potentially take it over, you’ll first have to damage it enough that it gives you the option to dock. However, be careful, if you damage it too much, it’ll just blow up. That’s everything you need to know about docking in Starfield.
