There’s nothing quite like running dry in your primary weapon and immediately swapping to a secondary that’s just as powerful. It’s a power move. In Starfield, there is a vast array of potent sidearms, like The Spacer, that can take down a tough Crimson Fleet pirate with a single shot or two, and it is explosive! Here is how to get The Spacer in Starfield.

Where to Get The Spacer in Starfield

To get your hands on The Spacer in Starfield, visit Arboron in Neon City, within the lobby of Ryujin Towers, to buy this unique Particle Beam Pistol. Thankfully, to match its small stature, this isn’t a pricy pistol. You can make it yours for approximately 13,400 credits.

If you’re having trouble finding Arboron, as I did when I first heard about the shop exclusively selling EM Weapons, then hit Neon Core. From there, head left from the starport elevator to Ryujin Tower, but do not enter the elevator. It’s a small shop on the left-hand side of the lobby.

The Spacer Stats and Details

Despite its size as a rather compact sidearm, The Spacer is rather powerful. It took me a single shot or two to take down a Spacer. Unfortunately, its unique effect is rather impotent. How often do you spend in space combat outside of your starship?
