The Whip is the fourth Auxiliary weapon added to the game. Its SP and AP costs are different from the normal weapons and there is a separate Auxiliary Wheel for it. See those articles for more general information about Auxiliary weapons and the Auxiliary Wheel.
In order to get the whip, you must first purchase Issue 6 mission pack from the Item Store. This will give you access to the "The Last Train to Cairo quest chain", which starts with the mission Mean Streets.
While on Tier 2 of The City Beneath Us, you will need to kill Atenist Excavation Supervisors, which will drop an Atenist Bullwhip. This is an ordinary whip, and cannot be used with your abilities until it has been infused with Anima. Keep it in your inventory while you finish that mission.
After completing Tier 2 of The City Before Us (Note the name, next mission after The City Beneath Us), you will need to stop by the Anima Infuser in that instance before starting Tier 3. See The City Before Us, Tier 3 walkthrough for details on where on the infuser is and how to access it. Once you have placed the Atenist Bullwhip in the infuser, you will continue on with the The City Before Us mission until Tier 4. At that point, you've returned to the present and the whip has had a few thousand years in the infuser. See The City Before Us, Tier 4 walkthrough for details on how to get back to the infuser and claim your whip.
