Starbender Cycle is a series of books in Prey. There are six of them, and reading them all will unlock the Prism Master achievement. They’re scattered across the ship, and they’re all really well hidden, so you’ll have to work hard to find them. There are several copies of almost all of them, so that each kind of player can get them, regardless of their play style. This guide will show you Prey Starbender Cycle book locations, to help you get the trophy.
Book 1: The Darkstar Anomaly
We found the first book in a hiding place in the Hardware Labs. Go to the upper floor of the atrium. Stand in front of the GravShaft (fancy elevator), and use your GLOO cannon to climb on top of it. Look to your left, and you’ll see a maintenance access hatch. Open it and get into the crawlspace. Inside, you’ll find the book, a few cans of drink and a chipset. Somebody made a cozy getaway here.
Book 2: My Enemy’s Enemy’s Enemy
A copy of the second book can also be found in the Hardware Labs. It’s in the northwestern corner of the machine shop, on level 1. There’s a cage there, with a recycler on top of it. The cage has an opening next to the window, but it’s blocked by some large crates. If you don’t have Leverage 3, you can move them by using a recycler charge, or one of the nearby explosive canisters. Once you’re inside, beware of the corrupt robot. You’ll find the book on a table next to a comfy red chair.
