Short Sighted Walkthrough - How to Fix The Eye

Jessica Dillon

There are quite a few quests to finish in Starfield’s main story. Some of them are shorter, while others tend to be on the longer side. "Short Sighted" iconShort Sighted is one of the shorter quests that takes you back to "The Eye" iconThe Eye to help the team complete some needed repairs. The guide below goes over how to repair The Eye and finish Short Sighted.

The Eye needs a bit of an update in the Short Sighted main quest.

How to Start Short Sighted

Short Sighted is a main story mission that takes place after you complete "Starborn" iconStarborn. It will begin as soon as the last mission is completed and is a bit annoying as all your "Constellation" iconConstellation companions will head to the eye and stay there until you finish the mission. This means that if they were following you, they will leave anyway possibly giving your crew an empty spot.

How to Complete Repairs on The Eye

When you’re ready to start Short Sighted, head up to The Eye and dock. Once you are on board several quest markers will pop up around the ship. This is due to a list of repairs needing to be done to spruce things up. You can complete the repairs in any order, but they all must be done. They are all marked with quest markers, so you won’t have any trouble at all finding them. To make things easier, you can start by helping "Sam Coe" iconSam Coe on the right side of the ship though, where he is welding. To do this, simply interact with the welding gun next to him to finish the repair. Next, head to the left side of the ship to find "Andreja" iconAndreja, she will need your help with some parts in a nearby box.

Next, head to the main part of The Eye, where you will find "Barrett" iconBarrett tinkering with the computer. Check the computer and open the file to make sure everything is working. Lastly, head over to Sarah, and go past her to the right to find the wrench on the table. Interact with it to finish up the last repair. All you need to do now is speak with Vladimir, this will end the quest and start High Price to Pay.

Earth has long been abandoned, but there are plenty of other planets in different star systems where humans have ventured and settled. You have the freedom to create your own character with a unique background, but the main story will take you through a series of adventures as you uncover more information about mysterious artifacts which create gravitational anomalies. Along the way, you can build and customize your own space ship, establish your own outpost, befriend and romance new companions, and more. As a Bethesda game, you can also expect to see a lot of creative mods which have the potential to change your experience of the base game, or take it in an entirely new direction.
