Where to Get the Deadeye in Starfield

To acquire the Deadeye revolver in Starfield, enlist with the Freestar Rangers in Akila City. Upon completing the Deputized Faction Quest, you’ll receive Deadeye after accepting Marshal Blake’s offer to join the eclectic group of law bringers.

Along with Deadeye, you’ll also receive a Deputy Hat and Ranger Deputy Uniform, the latter of which looks pretty fly. It’s aesthetically pleasing if you want to role-play as a gunslinger or Han Solo-like character.

How to Join the Freestar Rangers

You must finish Job Gone Wrong to join the Freestar Rangers in Akila City and unlock Deadeye. Upon visiting Akila City for the first time, a guard at the front entrance warns of a bank robbery in progress, in which Marshal Daniel Blake is stuck in a stalemate with the Shaw Gang robbers who have hostages inside the bank.

There are a few options to defuse the situation, through dialogue or a good old-fashioned shootout, but Blake prefers the former. It’s even better to resolve the heist without losing any hostages in the process.

Once the quest concludes, Blake will declare you Freestar Ranger material, offering you a chance to join the faction at The Rock nearby.
