Since Ambassador is a unique pistol, as we mentioned before there is only one way to get it in the game. To find Ambassador in Starfield, you will need to complete the Friends Like These quest. The unique pistol is given to you as a gift by Ambassador Radcliff. However, you need to make certain dialogue choices as the Ambassador is not a reward for the quest and needs to be gained through another method.

Friends Like These is part of the UC Vanguard questline and you have to retrieve a Freestar Collective Archival Code from Ambassador Radcliff. While talking to Ambassador Radcliff, instead of trying to persuade her to give you the key, tell her that you will “Figure out another way”.

Now you speak to the Freestar Embassy staffer, Cameron Long, in the room behind you and try to get the access key from him. Now when presented with a list of dialogue options, choose the option to lie to him about a new job. This will make him take you to a private spot and now you are to ask him for access to the Ambassador’s living quarters in return for your offer.

Proceed through the quest till you meet Ambassador Radcliff again. Now you will have the option to blackmail Radcliff in Starfield to get Ambassador pistol from her. During the confrontation, select “You call that a negotiation? Without even offering me a gift?”

Once you select the right dialogue, you will get Radcliff’s unique personal pistol, the Ambassador in Starfield.

What makes the Ambassador such a great pistol to find in Starfield however is its unique perk. The Shattering unique perk effect on Ambassador negates enemy armor and deals massive damage to even highly armored enemies.
