Part of going undercover for UC Vanguard means collecting evidence against the Crimson Fleet in Starfield as part of the Burden of Proof mission. Lieutenant Toft asks you to collect everything he can find and there are 20 pieces of evidence and some may be lost. The more evidence you collect, the better the reward you will get.
How to start loading the test in Starfield
Burden of Proof will begin once you become an undercover UC SysDef agent and are tasked with infiltrating the Crimson Fleet. Commander Ikande will ask you to report to Lieutenant Toft, who will ask you to gather all the evidence you can against the pirates.
Can evidence be discarded under the burden of proof?
There are certain pieces of evidence in the Burden of Proof mission that cannot be missed if you don’t pick them up when they become available. Some tests cannot be missed as they are part of the main objectives of the Crimson Fleet questline. If you want to find all the evidence of the Burden of Proof, you must do so before the Crimson Fleet faction questline ends.
All Starfield Test Charge Evidence Locations
The evidence you find for the Burden of Proof mission looks like notebooks. They are small and sometimes easy to miss, but they are marked “Evidence” so you know what you are looking for. Evidence can be found throughout the different missions you undertake for the Crimson Fleet and some is found in their main base, The Key.
1. Naeva Encounter Test Location
The Naeva Meet Up (Evidence) can be found behind Kemp on the table. Go to Sydonia on Mars, which is located in the Solar System. This evidence can be collected during the Deep Cover mission, which tasks you with joining the Crimson Fleet by impressing Adler Kemp.
2. Location of evidence from Carter’s concert
This evidence can be found during the Echoes of the Past mission. Carter’s concert is considered a key item you need to finish the mission, so you can’t miss it. To find it, open the lockers in the bathroom of the D-Block section.
3. Keeper’s Record Evidence Location
This can be found in the Guardian’s office during the Echoes of the Past quest. Follow the yellow painted rooms and go up the stairs. You’ll find the Keeper’s Log (Evidence) in the corner of one of the desks. Unlike the other evidence found on this mission, this one cannot be detected.
4. Request Evidence Location Denied
Request Denied is a test that can be found during the mission Breaking the Bank. It is on top of the shelf next to the bed in the captain’s room within the crew quarters. It’s on the second floor which you can head to after talking to Rokov. Head to the kitchen on the left and enter the crew quarters. Continue down the hallway until you see a red vending machine. The Captain’s Room is on the right.
5. Location of evidence of Dumbrosky’s embezzlement scheme

12. Message for the location of the swamp evidence
Talk to Bog at the Last Nova bar and ask him what’s bothering him. He will send you on the Recover the Past mission to find his ex-partner’s ring. The problem here is that the outpost for this mission appears to be randomly generated, meaning you could end up with enemies above your weight class. You will find the Message for Bog (Evidence) in a military box inside the same room where you find the ring.

19. Ayumi’s Offer Evidence Location
Ayumi’s offer (evidence) can be found behind the bar in the members-only lounge at Euphorika. You will end up arriving here because of the Absolute Power quest. However, entry will cost 5,000 credits.
twenty. Location of Mortem Obire evidence
You can find Mortem Obire (Evidence) right next to Jasper Kryx’s body in the Eye of the Storm quest. This is the penultimate mission of the Crimson Fleet faction questline before you have to decide between siding with the pirates or the UC SysDef.
Test Evidence Reward Loading in Starfield
Finding all 20 pieces of evidence for the Burden of Proof quest will reward you with the legendary Memento Mori pistol and a few thousand credits. After collecting the last evidence, return to UC Vigilance and talk to Lieutenant Toft, who will tell you about his past and give you rewards for finding all the evidence you need.
If you side with UC SysDef to fight the pirates, you will gain more support from the faction in the attack on The Key. Although just because you gave Lieutenant Toft all the evidence doesn’t mean you have to side with UC SysDef. You can immediately return to The Key to deliver Kryx’s Legacy to Delgado and side with the pirates.
