Prey Weapon Locations - Stun Gun, Boltcaster, Shotgun, Gloo Cannon, Q-Beam

Weapons will be your basic tools in Prey. You’ll have to fight against an onslaught of Typhon, alone on a vast space station. Since ammo can be scarce, especially on higher difficulty settings, the sooner you expand your arsenal, the better. Some of the weapons can be found in multiple places, while others are so well hidden you might miss them. In this guide, we’re going to show you all Prey weapon locations.

At the start of the game, you’ll need to leave your apartment. Break the balcony window and head to the nearest room to your right. Jump on the large blue device on the left and loot the contents of the briefcase.

Additional Location: As soon as you pick up your first GLOO Cannon (Neuromod Division), take a step back and enter the elevator shaft. Create platforms using the GLOO Cannon and climb to the second floor. Continue forward until you find a dead body on the ground to your left. Be sure to loot the 500 Disruptor Batteries as well.

Additional Location: Next to a dead body in the restroom, in the southeastern area of Talos I Lobby. GLOO foam blocks the entrance to this room. You’ll have to destroy it in order to enter the bathroom.

To find the Silenced Pistol, go to the Teleconferencing Center, in the western part of the third floor of Talos I Lobby. If you enter this area from the stairs, look to your right. It’s on the ground, close to the dead body of Elias Black. Loot the body for additional ammo.

Huntress Boltcaster

Area: Talos I Lobby, Sales Division
Description: Harke, traveller! Thine olde enemie, the knave, stands no chance against thee now! For thou hast the trusty Huntress at thine side! Yea, verily, any who wouldst challenge thee shall be slain in hasty fashion, when the Huntress lets fly her FlexiFoam bolts with truest aim! Go forth, intrepid hero! (feedback/problems email mmalinaro@transtar.talos).

The Sales Division is found in the east of Talos I Lobby, on level 3. There are some elements blocking the entrance. The easiest way to move them is to invest neuromods into leverage III. Once inside Sales Division, go to the northeastern part. The weapon is on the floor, close to the office desk.

The Boltcaster is mainly used for opening doors. All you need is ammo and a clear line of sight toward the door’s manual override switch.

Description: The TS-QPB-S11 Quasiparticle Beam is a prototype directed energy weapon. A stream of volatile quasiparticles causes rapidly cascading excitations in energetic systems of matter to the point of rupture.

The Q Beam is a crazy powerful weapon to be used sparingly. You can find it in the Beams and Waves Lab, during the Breach Access side quest. The lab is located in the Hardware Labs area, on Level 2, north of the Atrium (to the right of the statue). Once inside the lab, take the door on the right and look right. You’ll see a computer screen with Q-Beam controls. Use it to fry the Typhon inside, then unlock the Q-Beam Firing Range. Go inside and pick up your new weapon.
