How to equip Neuroamps in Starfield

To use Neuroamps on your character, you must access your inventory first. You can hover the cursor over your clothing items options and find the Neuroamp listed among other options.  

After you equip one of these Neuroamps, you will notice a small physical change in your character’s appearance. If you observe the face, small metallic chips are embedded on the right side of your forehead and underneath your eye.

I believe you should purchase the Neuroamps to get a peaceful and favorable resolution out of most situations and turn the tide in your favor.

This way, you will enjoy a smoother Starfield gameplay experience with less fighting. Investing in high-level Neuroamps (Mark III) will also be necessary, as these will be even more beneficial for your character during his dialogue sessions.

These will allow you to bypass those challenging conversation encounters with certain NPC characters and increase your hold over your social skills in Starfield.

How to obtain the Neuroamp Prototype

To obtain the Neuroamp Prototype, you can follow the mission to Sabotage the Heating System at Ryujin Industries.

Head down the stairs, and just before reaching the lower level, jump to the roof of the lower level and go left from there towards the vent. Open it, jump inside, and then make a long jump to reach the other vent below. Open it; this way, you can find a way into the research and development area.

Head straight and then enter the area, which will be labeled secure access. You must run the program on Faye’s computer first and then Lucas’s. After all that’s left will be to sabotage the Heating System. Once you do that, you can salvage the Internal Neuroamp Prototype from the Holding Chamber.
