As the name would suggest, the Ambassador unique pistol in Starfield is a gift from a certain ambassador found in New Atlantis. It’s part of a quest, a lengthy one, that involves a whole lot of firefights, alien menaces, and politics. It’s downright entertaining! But if your only goal is to get the Ambassador pistol in Starfield, let me help you!

Where to Get the Ambassador Pistol in Starfield

To acquire Ambassador, you’ll need to start the UC Vanguard questline and take part in “Friends Like These,” a faction quest based on New Atlantis, Jemison. Here, you’ll speak with Ambassador Radcliff, who will provide you with the pistol as a gift. Here’s a play-by-play:

  • During the quest, you’ll track down Ambassador Radcliff to gain her assistance in stopping the Terrormorph invasion.
  • Do not persuade her. Instead, speak with Freestar Embassy Staffer Cameron, who has some inside information about Radcliff’s shady dealings. Use this to blackmail her.
  • Return to Radcliff, then select the dialogue “You call that a negotiation? Without even offering me a gift?” when it appears.
  • In response, she’ll hand over Ambassador.

Yes, it’s shady. Yes, it’ll sour your relationship with her. Oh, well.

Based on the Regulator, Ambassador is pretty stock in appearance besides its reflex sight. Despite the rather drab aesthetic, it’s a relatively powerful pistol that functions well mid-game. You’ll find a replacement for it somewhere along the lines when working with the UC Vanguard, so don’t fret too much.
