How to Get the DR-5 Nova

Purchased Via Weapon Vendors

Each weapon vendor has a fixed pool of weapons which can show up, with some legendary weapons also purchasable at specific shops. If the DR-5 Nova is not present when visiting a shop, simply exit, use Skip Time to go 24 hours ahead, and repeat until DR-5 Nova is available.

Picked up from Enemies and Loot

Weapons are often dropped by enemies after defeating them, and can also be obtained by opening lootable chests found around the map. Stronger enemies will often drop higher level weapons, so take on side quests such as SCPD Scanner Hustles with higher danger levels to have a better chance at getting more powerful weapons.

    • I'd really like to see a flowchart with all the Main Quests, Side Quests, and Gigs that exist so we can easily see what you need to do before unlocking XYZ quest (kind of like they did here except with everything, not just the Main ones)

    • Johnny is not spawning in during the pyramid song quest when you have to talk to him.
