How to Get the Old Earth Hunting Rifle in Starfield

Take a little piece of Earth to your enemies!

Based on the gameplay and the overall setting, one would expect Starfield to feature nothing but gut-busting laser beams and railguns. You’d be surprised, though, because the game has an iconic selection of Old Earth weaponry, including the 1911, which is in almost every first-person shooter, the AK-47, and a Mossberg Pump-Action Shotgun. Of course, they go by different names, but the idea remains the same. The best of the bunch is probably the Old Earth Hunting Rifle in terms of damage and accuracy. It’s essentially a VSS. Here’s where to get the Old Earth Hunting Rifle in Starfield!
