Where to Get Boom Boom in Starfield

To get Boom Boom in Starfield, you must jump to Neon, walk down Neon Core, and visit Neon Tactical to buy this unique shotgun. The vendor here, while a bit salty and gruff, will happily take your nearly 20,000 credits for this weapon.

Surprisingly, you can buy Boom Boom in Starfield. While every unique weapon has effects to alter its playstyle and boons, Explosive seems exceedingly rare. I’ve only discovered a small handful in my various playthroughs, and Boom Boom takes the cake as the best one.

Boom Boom Stats and Details
