If you’re following the UC Vanguard questline, you’re already on track to acquire the Radburn in Starfield. It’s in the first mission area for the “Grunt Work” quest on planet Tau Cetti II in the Tau System.

Considering the big surprise halfway through, you’ll likely want to deal with the quest itself before searching for the unique pistol. Once all of the excitement dies down, however, head to the rear side of the facility and look for the illuminated storage area with a bunch of Tau crates stacked on top of each other. You want the rear-most stack, with the angled blue container, to locate the Radburn. It’s inside, sitting on a box inside a case.
