With a name like Jake’s Hangover Cure, one would imagine that this unique Starfield shotgun would be non-lethal—a deterrent for drunken hoodlums in The Well. Unfortunately for them, but good for us, it’s not. This fully lethal, close-range devastator deals both physical and energy damage. Here is how to get Jake’s Hangover Cure in Starfield!

Where to Get Jake’s Hangover Cure in Starfield

To get Jake’s Hangover Cure in Starfield, you must visit The Well and locate Jake’s Bar. It’s tucked into a corner in the back if you’re coming down the elevator from the spaceport.

Once you’re at the bar, head around behind the bar itself. You’ll spot Jake’s Hangover Cure hanging from metal hooks built into the bar, directly beside Jake himself. Unfortunately, it’s in plain sight of every patron and the owner, and taking this unique shotgun means stealing it.

If you take the shotgun, it will incur a bounty, and the UC Security will be on the hunt for you, unfortunately. You need to pick when to steal it.
