To get the Magshear in Starfield, you have to either loot the high-powered weapon from enemies or, better yet, purchase it from one of the key weapon vendors in the game.

You may get lucky and find a few other vendors in New Atlantis, Neon, or Akila City selling the Magshear, but don’t get your hopes up. These are specialty weapons and, as such, typically only come from particular vendors.
