Beowulf is one of the best lightweight assault rifles in Starfield for mid-range combat. This rifle’s high damage and decent accuracy allow you to deal with enemies effectively. However, obtaining this weapon is not easy; you must reach the required level to get your hands on it.
I will provide all the necessary information if you want to learn more about the Beowulf rifle.
How to get the Beowulf Rifle
To acquire this rifle in Starfield, you must complete various missions during your playthrough until you reach Level 16.
Once you reach this level, you can spend time defeating Crimson Fleet crew members. These will include the likes of Pirate Marauders and Pirate Rover. You will often encounter these guys during some of your sidequests, and some will be found carrying the Beowulf rifle.
Taking out Spacer Scum’s is also a good option, as you might get lucky while killing the right guy and ending up finding the Beowulf rifle. You can find these enemies in places like Abandoned Hangars, Abandoned Fuel Depots, etc.
If you are interested in hunting pirates, then you can also check the Mission Board. This way, you can check the bounty for elite pirates and take your time killing them and finding unique weapons like Beowulf as loot.
However, if you still have difficulty obtaining the Beowulf weapon, you can earn some credits and use the option to purchase it.

You will need to have a level higher than 16, and after that, you can visit each of the Trade Authority shops to check for the different versions of Beowulf.
Most of these Trade Authority Vendors are located in different planet areas such as Neon, New Atlantis, Cydonia, Akila City, etc. You can visit each of them and check their inventory. Then, you can spend the required credit to purchase the Beowulf from these NPC vendors.
Similarly, you can also visit the following shops to purchase this specific rifle:
- Centaurion Arsenal

If you cannot find the Beowulf at any of these shops, rest at a nearby bench and try visiting these vendors again. This way, the vendors will restock new items, and you will get to buy the Beowulf.
