If you’ve travelled out to this city on the planet Akila in the heart of the Cheyenne system, you might have noticed that everything tends to blend in a bit.

Whether you’re getting started or are a Starfield veteran by now, you can never get too many Starfield tips and tricks to help you out. And if you’re getting started with the United Colonies questline, check out our Starfield Delivering Devils quest guide to help you make some important choices in the quest. With that, let’s take a look at all of the shops and locations in Akila City.
All Akila City shops
Despite being the capital city of the Freestar Collective, Akila City isn’t huge, and especially when compared to the likes of New Atlantis and Neon, there are fewer shops to check out. Nevertheless, with so many winding streets, it can be a struggle to find your way around, and there may even be some vendors you didn’t even know existed. In there are 13 vendors in Akila City.
Here’s a full list of all the shops and stores you can find in Akila City:
- Laredo Firearms
- Midtown Minerals
- Rowland Arms
- Shepherd’s General Store
- Sinclair’s Books
- Stoneroot Inn
- Terrabrew Coffee
- The Hitching Post
- The Rock
- Trade Authority
Aggie’s is a bar that’s popular with the locals of Akila City, and can be found in the area known as The Stretch, on the western side of the city. Like many bars, you can buy food and drinks here, and the bar plays its role in a few quests, too.
No Starfield city is complete without a Chunks, and Akila City is no exception. On the left-hand side of the main street in Akila City, you can find Chunks, where you’ll be able to get all of your favourite cubed foods.
If you’re tired of how your character looks, you can head to Enhance! and change all of your customisation options completely. On the same main street as Chunks, head left when leaving Chunks and keep an eye out for the sign on the side of a building, as it can be fairly easy to miss if you’re not careful.
Laredo Firearms is a bit out of the way, but is well worth visiting as it has some fairly powerful weaponry available for sale. As soon as you come in through the city’s main entrance, take the first right and follow the path all the way to Laredo’s Firearms. As well as its wares, it features a shooting range, and is a major location in The Great Laredo Caper sidequest.
Midtown Minerals is specialised in resources that you can mine, including various elemental ores that are useful in crafting and research. All the way at the back of the city, follow the main path to the back left of the city, where you’ll find Midtown Minerals.
Another decent weapon shop, it has a variety of guns that come with weapon mods already equipped, as well as being a great source of ammo. It’s fairly near the main entrance – simply follow the path past Shepherd’s General Store and you’ll see Rowland Arms on your left.
Shepherd’s General Store
Your one-stop-shop for almost everything you need in Starfield. Whether it’s gear, healing items, ammo, or anything else, you can probably find it here. As soon as you enter the city, you’ll see the store on your left.
Sinclair’s Books is, as you probably guessed, a book shop. Here, you can find all sorts of books that you can’t buy anywhere else, including anything from real-life classics like Oliver Twist and A Tale of Two Cities to brand new books made just for Starfield. You’ll find it in the Midtown area of the city, just down the path from the Solomon Coe statue, where Ahnjong Sinclair will be oh too happy to sell to you.
If you’re wanting a short-term stay in Akila City, then the Stoneroot Inn is the place to go. As well as offering rooms to rent for a day for 300 credits, up to a week for 2000 credits, you can also head to the bar to buy a variety of food and drinks. Also in Midtown, it’s right over the road from Sinclair’s Books.
The Settled Systems’ favourite coffee shop, Terrabrew can also be found in Akila City. Like its other locations, you can come here to fulfil all your virtual coffee needs, and can be found on the city’s main street, next to The Rock.
The Hitching Post
Another bar, The Hitching Post serves a variety of food and drinks for you to buy. As well as that, it serves as a good place to pick up some crew members if you’re looking to recruit. You can find it immediately to your right as you enter the city.
While it appears to just be your standard bar from the outside, The Rock also serves as a gathering point for members of the Freestar Collective faction (or Freestar Rangers if you prefer). It also features an infirmary where you can get some medicine and heal up if you’re injured. It’s easy to find, too, as it’s right ahead of the main entrance of the city.
The ever-present Trade Authority also has its own location in Akila City, where you can buy and sell whatever you please, contraband included, though it doesn’t have the same stock and variety of items as those in larger cities. It’s fairly easy to find as it’s on the main street, behind The Hitching Point and GalBank. There’s also a Trade Authority kiosk near the spaceport.
That’s all of the available shops and vendors in Akila City. Once you’re done in Akila City, why not head to Neon where you can take on some Ryujin Industries faction quests, like the Starfield Sabotage quest. And while you’re there, be sure to go through the Starfield Absolute Power quest for the Crimson Fleet, too.
