In Starfield, there are numerous weapons. Incredibly, an abundance of weapons. Some weapons are wonderfully powerful, while many others are not quite as impressive. However, only a relatively small percentage of the weapons in Starfield are truly unique. If you are an avid collector of the rarest treasures in the galaxy or simply seek to make early progress with a highly decent starter shot, Sir Livingstone's pistol is the choice for you.
However, there is only one way to obtain Sir Livingstone's pistol, and it requires a trade-related compromise. Let us delve into it.
Take The Kid Stuff Trait
Yes, precisely. Sir Livingstone's pistol, as far as we can currently ascertain, is exclusively reserved for the "Child at Heart" trait, which can be selected during character creation among the three available traits.
Without context, it may sound peculiar. Why are your parents the key to a historically informed piece like this? Here's how everything unfolds, assuming you have selected the "Child at Heart" trait. Meet your mother and father at their home in New Atlantis. You can do this before or after the main quest titled "A Small Step," but you will only receive the weapon after completing that quest.
We have heard various reports about what happens next, but none of them are definitively hard to reach. In our playthrough, our parents appeared during the next visit to the lodge, with some wise advice from our dear father... and, of course, with Sir Livingstone's pistol. Thanks, Dad. It is also possible to receive a note from Noel requesting to see you, as this triggers further events involving your not-so-young parents.
Anyway, Sir Livingstone's pistol is pretty cool stuff. It will be outclassed after a few more hours, but it should easily outperform any purchasable handgun for a while. You can sell it, but wouldn't it make a better decoration, don't you think?
