Starfield: How to Get Hunter Armor and Weapon

Here's how to get the Hunter armor and weapon in Starfield.

The Hunter is one of the major characters you’ll encounter as you near the end of the Starfield campaign. A being ancient beyond measure, he numbers among the oldest and most powerful of the Starborn. Here’s how to get the Hunter armor and weapon in Starfield.

Where is the Hunter’s Armor and Weapon in Starfield?

The Hunter’s weapon, Unmitigated Violence, is much easier to get than his armor. Here’s how to get both.

  • Hunter weapon: Side with the Emissary, or neither of the Starborn, near the end of the campaign. Killing the Hunter guarantees he drops the weapon.
  • Hunter armor: Reach NG+10. Yep, you have to hit New Game Plus 10 times.

Starborn Spacesuit Venator: Hunter Armor Stats

When you hit NG+ 10, you’ll start the playthrough with the Starborn Spacesuit Venator, the Hunter’s armor. Each time you go through Unity and start another edition of NG+, the Legendary Effects will randomize, though you’ll always have three assigned. Like other Starborn armor you’ve earned, you can’t mod it.

  • PHYS: 246
  • ENGY: 246
  • EM: 246
  • Thermal: 50
  • Corrosive: 50
  • Airborne: 50
  • Radiation: 50

The spacesuit does come with a Balanced Boostpack.

Unmitigated Violence: The Hunter’s Weapon Stats

Depending on what level you’re at when you loot the Hunter’s weapon, these stats may vary. Unlike the armor, the legendary effects and mods will remain the same. It’s a laser rifle that requires 3KV LZR Cartridge ammo.

  • Base Damage: 125 Energy
  • Secondary Damage: N/A
  • Magazine: 50
  • Fire Rate: 33
  • Range: 52
  • Accuracy: 77%

Legendary Effects

Frenzy: Small chance to frenzy a target.
Radioactive: Randomly deals radioactive damage and demoralizes the target.
Instigating: Deals double damage to targets with full health.

Weapon Mods

  • Long Barrel
  • Recon Laser Sight
  • Reflect Sight
  • Stealth Lasers
  • Stabilizing Stock
  • Large Battery
  • Amplifier

I recommend grabbing Unmitigated Violence when you finally decide to stop going through the Unity. Whether that’s at NG+10 or not, having the Hunter weapon is a good reminder that you’ve finally settled in a universe.

Important Notes on the Hunter Armor and Weapon in Starfield

The catch with the Hunter’s weapon is that if you go into New Game Plus (and you’ll need to), you can’t take it with you. You do get some swanky Starborn armor of your own, but you lose everything else.

You also get a different set of Starborn armor (as well as a better Starborn ship) with each NG cycle. So it follows that you’ll eventually get the Hunter’s armor. When you enter the new universe in NG+10, the Hunter’s armor will be equipped to your character automatically.

By that point in the game, you’ll likely be at least Level 50 or much higher. The stats on the armor will be through the roof. Thankfully, if all you do is bull rush the main story, gather all the Artifacts, and go through the Unity, each NG cycle should only take you a couple of hours.

If you want absolutely everything Starfield has to offer, you’ll be spending at least a bit of time progressing through successive new games. However, the process is liable to take you hundreds of hours.

How to Use Console Commands to Get the Hunter’s Armor and Weapon

If you’re like me and don’t want to rush your playthrough but also want the Hunter’s armor, you can always use console commands to add it to your inventory. This will turn off Achievements unless you have mods installed that override that.

To add either piece of equipment, use the following command: player.additem [item id] [value]. The value will be 1, unless you plan on having multiple copies.

  • Starborn Spacesuit Venator: Armor Item ID 0021C77F
  • Unmitigated Violence: Weapon Item ID 1F02EF

That’s how to get the Hunter armor and weapon in Starfield. There is, of course, no stopping you from continuing through New Game cycles. But at that point, wouldn’t you rather explore a bit?
