The highly anticipated Prey 2017 will be arriving this May on PC, Xbox One and PS4. A hands on with the game gave us a better look into the game’s mechanics, including the weapons and setting.
As you’re thrust into Prey and the increasingly darkening reality of main character Morgan Yu, the good news is there are a series of powerful weapons waiting for you on board Talos 1. The bad news? You start of with a wrench.
Before we take a closer look at the prey weapons, which are seriously cool and a nice change from the average weaponry range in some first person shooters. Let’s take a look at some of the more advanced technology that you can use at later points in the game to craft resources for your weapons.
The Recycler – Converts scrap and rubbish you pick up along the way into helpful resources.
The Fabricator – Use those resources on the Fabricator to create weapons and ammo for existing weapons.
Prey forces you to be smart and decisive with your weapon choice and adapt to different scenarios and enemies. Know when to pick your battles! So here’s what you’ve got on hand to make the brutal moments a little less brutal.
As simple as it sounds, you begin with a wrench, because they wouldn’t want to make it too easy would they? The wrench is great when paired with the Gloo Cannon…
A versatile tool, which is quick and handy. Stick enemies and then smash them with the wrench to finish them off for good! You can also use the Gloo Cannon to climb walls. Try making a path from the floor to an upper ledge, voila!
One of the average but very necessary weapons on board Talos 1 and part of Morgan’s kit, don’t underestimate the pistol.
One of the first guns you’ll have access to, it’s powerful yes, with a good range, but slow rate of fire. Again, paired with the Gloo Cannon, you’ll be laughing!
A glorified nerf gun, this seemingly deadly crossbow is not so deadly and acts as a distraction device on the Typhon.
