How to Get Weapons in Starfield

Throughout your journey in the Settled Systems, you’ll encounter many weapons; some are new, while others are variants of existing archetypes. You can primarily find them by looting humanoid enemies, exploring points of interest, searching crates, etc.

Moreover, you can also buy weapons from shops. Furthermore, the weapons collected from drops have randomized stats that vary, but there are unique weapons you can get as rewards for finishing various quests.

Additionally, you can also buy unique weapons from vendors. However, you must ensure not to hoard weapons so you don’t get encumbered.
