I’ll be the first to admit that Neon is one of the most fantastic cities in the Settled Systems. It gives the cyberpunk vibes I craved from Night City but in a more condensed location. Seriously, you have drugs stemming from fish, neon-lit shops, and a slum overflowing with gang members; it’s exciting. But do you know what’s more exciting? Giving your enemies a buzzcut with a unique Grendel! Here is how to get The Buzzcut in Starfield.

Where to Get The Buzzcut in Starfield

To get The Buzzcut in Starfield, visit Neon Tactical in Neon City, along the main causeway known as Neon Core. It’s a weapon store with a red-and-blue neon sign outside, a graffiti-covered robot, and a very unwelcoming store owner who, honestly, I cannot tell if he wants trouble or wants to avoid it. Either way, he’s got firearms.

The Buzzcut is a unique variant of the Grendel, one of the most common submachine guns across the Settled Systems. As such, it’s relatively weak from the outset.


Before you leave Neon Tactical, just a quick note: he’ll also sell you Boom Boom!
