Starfield: Side with The Hunter, Emissary, or None Choice Explained

During the Starfield mission Unearthed, players make a very important choice that effects the outcome of the game. This choice is whether or not to side with The Hunter, Emissary, or neither of them. What you pick here, determines what happens in the game’s final mission called Revelation. To learn what each of the Starfield side with The Hunter, Emissary, or None outcomes are, see our guide below.

When do You Make the Choice for the Revelation Final Mission in Starfield?

Before diving into the outcome of each choice you can make, I first want to address the moment this choice is made. At the end of the Unearthed mission you leave the NASA Launch Tower and meet up with The Emissary and The Hunter outside. When you speak to the duo you will need to choose from one of the following dialogue selections:

  1. The Emissary is right. The Artifacts need to be in the right hands.
  2. The Hunter is right. The only real rule is who gets all the Artifacts first.
  3. You’re both wrong. It’s time someone other than a Starborn made a decision.

When you select one of the decisions listed above you will get a second chance to confirm your decision. What you decide to do is your choice, but I would recommend taking a look down below for details on each decision.

If you are wanting to try all three in a single game you should make a save before interacting with the duo. This will allow you to reload back to this decision making point, to make a different one.

What Happens if You Side with The Emissary in Starfield?

If you go with The Emissary (by selecting the first choice) you will gain him as an ally in the final mission, Revelation. What this means is that The Emissary will give you aid during the ship battle and the interior facility combat sections. This makes both fights a bit easier to complete, with you having another character with you taking on enemies.

Siding with The Emissary means you will fight The Hunter in the final showdown of the game. This means you get the Unmitigated Violence Legendary Laser Rifle from defeating The Hunter.

What Happens if You Side with The Hunter in Starfield?

If you go with The Hunter (by selecting the second choice) you will gain him as an ally in the final mission, Revelation. What this means is that The Hunter will give you aid during the ship battle and the interior facility combat sections. This makes both fights a bit easier to complete, with you having another character with you taking on enemies.

Siding with The Hunter means you will fight The Emissary in the final showdown of the game. This means you get the Eternity’s Gate Legendary Particle Beam Rifle from defeating The Emissary.

What Happens if You Don’t Side with The Hunter or The Emissary in Starfield?

The third decision is to tell both of them you aren’t siding with them. Doing this means you turn away their assistance in the Revelation mission. This makes the final mission much harder as you don’t have a ally backing you up in the space and ground combat sections.

While this third option is the hardest of the bunch, it is also the most rewarding. When you reject both The Emissary and The Hunter you fight both of them during the final fight. This means you can get both the Unmitigated Violence Legendary Laser Rifle and the Eternity’s Gate Legendary Particle Beam Rifle in a single playthrough.

There are story implications in each decision listed above. I didn’t bother going over those as they would enter into deep spoiler territory. The above gives you a general idea as to what happens and what rewards you can get from all three decisions.
