Iconic weapons are special weapons you’ll find in special locations throughout Night City. Some can only be purchased from certain vendors, and some can only be acquired through certain side quests. Some are carried by specific characters, and the only way you’ll get their gun is if you, you know, remove them from the equation.
Below is a checklist of the Iconic weapons sorted by how you get the weapon.
Keep your eyes peeled for these weapons during the Main Job quests.

How to get: Chaos is a rare Tech Pistol that is owned by the current leader of the Maelstrom gang, Roce. You’ll have to barter with him during The Pickup, but the only way to gain the weapon is over his cold dead hands, which means you need to either kill him during a window of opportunity during the trade, or hunt him down at the end of the mission.
