Why you may want to remove traits in Starfield

There are many reasons to do so. Sometimes the cons outweigh the pros. For example, the Empath trait temporarily increases your combat effectiveness if you perform an action your companion likes. But if you perform an activity that they do not like, you will be less effective in combat. Similarly, the Alien DNA trait starts you off with increased health and oxygen, but healing items lose effectiveness.

So you must consider whether the cons outweigh the pros or is it too much of a hassle. You may also want to try a different playstyle and may need a particular set of traits. Replacing traits lets you swap them out and try different combinations to that end.
