When it comes to the many unique weapons in Starfield, you’ll find that most are rifles or pistols, which is fine. There’s undoubtedly a need for such weapons. But what about heavy weapons? We need more unique heavies with rare affixes to deal bombastic damage to our foes. Thankfully, the UC Vanguard questline has you covered. Here is how to get Shattered Shock in Starfield.
Where to Get Shattered Shock in Starfield
To get Shattered Shock in Starfield, you must follow along with the UC Vanguard quest, specifically “Hostile Intelligence,” and boost pack up to the hanging crate in Londinion. It’s easy to miss this one, as you’re likely busy fighting Terrormorphs. It’s near the platform, hanging over the air, and you can leap up onto a nearby crate and then boost pack up to open the door. Afterward, jump straight inside and loot the chest. You’ll find Shattered Shock.
It’s a rare heavy grenade launcher that deals a ton of damage, which will come in handy in the final stages of this specific quest.

The armor-piercing effect and the already-impressive physical damage make Shattered Shock a serious weapon for late-game playthroughs. The only downside is how expensive the 40MM XPL ammunition is and how rarely you find large amounts for sale.
