As is common in Bethesda’s ARPGs, I spend a lot of time selling everything from spoons to spacesuits in Starfield. Whether you're stealing or just looting the spoils of battle, everything from weapons to wooden ducks can be sold, but boost packs aren't so cut and dry. These items are an integral part of survival, so which ones should be kept or sold in Starfield?
All Starfield boost packs - Best packs to sell
As you’ll see in my table below, selling packs is a great way to make some credits. However, they also weigh a lot, so you need to keep an eye on the weight-to-value ratio. Their mass doesn’t change a great deal, so with a few exceptions you’re looking at a value of around 150 to 450 credits per 1.0 of mass, which is preferable to a lot of vendor trash. In short, always pick up any packs you find, especially if you can immediately transfer them to ship cargo for sale later.

The way I decide which packs to sell and keep is to ensure I keep packs that have the best possible stats for each armor value. So, if a pack doesn’t have at least one armor (Phys, Engy, EM) or conditions (Thermal, Airborne, corrosive, Radiation) value at the top of my pack list, I’ll sell it to a vendor. The exception to this is if it has a particular extra ability I can’t get from another pack in my inventory, such as Power Boost (although you’ll need to level up Boost Pack Training to use this).

Note that this is not a full list, but it will give you an idea of where your pack fits in the great scheme of things. Also, note that you can find or create superior packs (they’ll be named in blue or yellow, depending on rarity) which are improved versions of the standard packs below.
