If you manage to take down the Hunter during the main story mission “High Price to Pay,” you’ll be rewarded with the Unrestrained Vengeance. To achieve this, you’ll only need to reduce his health bar once, causing him to momentarily vanish. He may reappear later, but as long as you can defeat him at least once, he’ll offer you the Rare laser rifle along with some credits when you return to your ship and depart.

To acquire The Last Priest, you’ll have to finish the Infinity’s End side quest. This quest becomes available only if you choose to align with the Hunter during the final stages of the Unearthed main story mission. Players will be rewarded with this Rare melee weapon by either following the Hunter’s instructions or by persuading him that you’ve done so, even if you haven’t actually completed the task.

Unmitigated Violence serves as the Hunter’s primary weapon, and it’s no wonder that it ranks among the top-tier firearms in Starfield. Players can acquire this Legendary laser rifle by defeating the Hunter at the Buried Temple. However, this opportunity is only available to those who do not side with him at the conclusion of the Unearthed main story mission. Consequently, if you have your sights set on obtaining his weapon, you should opt for the Emissary or remain neutral in your allegiance.

If this condition is met, they should align themselves with Constellation and proceed to the Residential District of New Atlantis to pay a visit to their parents. Their digital Dad, brimming with pride, will then graciously present Sir Livingstone’s Pistol as a gift.
