Starfield is teeming with unique weapons, each offering its own set of advantages. Among these, the Ember stands out as a laser pistol that many players are eager to add to their arsenal. If you’re one of them, you’re in luck! This guide will walk you through the steps to acquire the Ember Pistol.


The path to obtaining the Ember Pistol is intertwined with the game’s intricate quest system. Specifically, you’ll need to embark on the Top Secrets quest, which is part of the Ryujin Industries questline.

  1. Simon’s Side Job: The key to acquiring the Ember lies in a side job offered by a character named Simon. During the Top Secrets quest, you’ll have the opportunity to extract information from Simon. This can be achieved in several ways:
    • Persuading him.
    • Offering him a payment ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 credits.
    • Opting to undertake a side job for him. To set yourself on the path to the Ember, you must select the option “Tell me about this side job.”
  2. Boarding the Datura: Once you’ve committed to Simon’s side job, your next destination is the Datura, located in Saturn’s orbit. Your objective here is to retrieve the Ember from an individual named Malai. A word of caution: resist the urge to attack the Datura ship. Instead, opt for peaceful interactions, allowing you to board the ship and converse with Malai. Your final task on the Datura is to either persuade or, if necessary, confront Malai to secure the Ember for Simon.
