For those who are wondering, you can get the Wakizashi Katana in Starfield in two ways. The first one is located in the light city of Neon with the Seokbuh Syndicate. And the other you can get by infiltrating and completing Striker Gang Missions.

It is worth noting that the Striker Gang Katana is a common variant of the legendary Wakizashi Katana found at the Syndicate Hideout. Allow us to explain both methods in detail.

Once on Neon, look for the Ebbside district, which is located next to the Volii Hotel. From there, look for Frankie’s Grab + Go, a cute little shop with a secret entrance to the Seokguh Syndicate’s hideout, an underground gang of sorts.

You can persuade shop owner Franchesca Moore to open the foxhole door for you, but stealing her keycard is a better option here. In any case, once inside the hideout, it is simply a matter of exploring the maze-like structure until you come across a yellow weapon case on a table.

Loot that, and you will have the Syndicate Enforcer, the unique Wakizashi Katana in Starfield, all to yourself.
