Starfield ‘A Break at Dawn’: Should you persuade Hugo to give back the engagement ring?

Picking up UC Security missions in Starfield sees you taking on a number of interesting missions, one of which is A Break at Dawn.

In this mission, you are tasked with hunting someone down who has reportedly stolen a valuable ring, following a disagreement at a fancy restaurant called Pioneer Tower. The accused is Hugo Fournier and, after finding and speaking to Hugo, you find out the ring he’s reportedly stolen was actually an engagement ring given to him by his fiancé, Octavio.

After finding out Octavio asked a waiter at the restaurant for their number, the two had a big falling out, and Hugo decided to keep the ring. Now, Octavio wants it back, so he reported Hugo for theft. This leaves you with a choice: Should you persuade Hugo to turn over the ring or let him hold onto it?

Should you persuade Hugo to return the ring or let him keep it in Starfield?

When you confront Hugo after the theft, he tells you his sad story. Hugo is suitably angry, but you have a job to do, and it’s up to you whether or not to do it.

After Hugo’s rant, you are given two options: You can either persuade him to give back the ring, or you can agree with him that his ring “theft” isn’t a crime.

If you agree with him, he keeps the ring. You can then go back to Yumi at UC Security, explain the situation, and still walk away with 2000 Credits and 100 XP. This option does mean, however, that you aren’t able to keep the ring for yourself and sell it.

I suggest, instead, that you persuade Hugo to return the ring, as this gives you the option to keep and sell it, if you wish.

Starfield often presents you with moral choices, making you choose between credits and being a good person. The New Atlantic mission, A Break at Dawn, presents you with a decision like this: Should you keep the engagement ring you confiscated from Hugo or give it to Yumi at Security?

Starfield’s A Break at Dawn mission sees you hunting down a ‘criminal’ who stole a valuable ring from a man called Octavio. It turns out it was an engagement ring and was kept by the victim’s scorned lover, Hugo, after the two had a big bust-up at a local restaurant. If you decided to persuade Hugo to give back the ring, then you’re left with a choice: Do you keep it and sell it, or return it to Yumi as instructed?

Whatever your decision, you need to return to Yumi at UC Security to complete the mission. When you speak to him, he asks you whether you’ve recovered the ring. If you want to keep the ring, choose the option “[Keep Ring] The ring wasn’t stolen. It was gifted.”

Yumi accepts your explanation and, despite your fault morals, you are rewarded 2000 Credits and 100 XP. You also have a shiny new ring that you can sell at a merchant for 675 Credits.
