Bethesda has released beta update 1.8.87 for Starfield on Steam, addressing the “adoring fan” Asteroid problem. According to the patch notes, this version also resolves an issue with Outposts.

The patch resolves an error that caused space matter to stick to the player’s ship during space travel. Loading a save file will now remove that unwanted passenger. Elaborating on the fix, the notes state that in instances where player ships have New Atlantis attached, the issue will continue to persist. That will be addressed in a later update for Starfield.

Moving on, a problem with Outposts that prevented random guns from spawning in a newly created Weapon Case once a save file was loaded has been resolved. As this is a beta update, there is a possibility that players may encounter unusual glitches and bugs. In case of such an eventuality, users can provide feedback to ensure smooth operations in the full release.

Starfield update 1.8.87 is a minor patch that targeted two specific issues. Its previous update introduced prominent performance fixes and brought top-requested features to PC such as stable DLSS and DLAA support, improving the overall gameplay experience on the platform.


Bethesda’s space-faring RPG launched on September 6, 2023, for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox Game Pass, and PC. Highly anticipated to be a generational hallmark of excellence, Starfield failed to deliver a compelling and satisfying experience due to its flawed execution.

In our review, we gave it a rating of 3.5/5 citing its forgettable main questline, limited exploration mechanics, clunky UI, uneven space combat, and subpar PC performance. If you’re just starting, consider taking a look at the Starfield weapons tier list to know which guns stand out from the rest.
