Is there anything better than unloading the entire drum of a minigun in a video game? It’s like a superpower, to melt enemies from afar. In Starfield, it doesn’t have the same oomph, but using a heavy weapon still feels powerful. Unfortunately, they’re few and far between. But we have the answer to that problem. Here is how to get X-989 Microgun in Starfield.
Where to Get X-989 Microgun in Starfield
To get X-989 Microgun in Starfield, you must join the UC Vanguard and progress through their faction questline until “Hostile Intelligence.” Once at Londinion, visit the local armory to stock up on equipment before fighting Terrormorphs, and you’ll find this unique heavy weapon sitting on the shelf nearby.
It’s important to note that, a little further into this quest, you can also find Shattered Shock. It’s a unique grenade launcher hovering above a group of Terrormorphs.
