What are Science Weapons?

Science Weapons are a mysterious lot. No one knows why they exist. Phineas Wells may have created one of them out of boredom, but the others exist because they might have been pirated out of his lab.

They have strange and unique effects that may help you in your inter-planetary journey in Halcyon!

A sidequest, Weapons from the Void, helps you collect these weapons.

Significance of Science Weapons

Science Weapons have a strange and powerful effect. For instance, the Shrink Ray can - well, shrink enemies. The other Weapons also have the same strange and beneficial effects when used against your foes.

Science Weapons and How to Get Them

The Shrink Ray

Shrink Ray-Science_The Outer Worlds
The Shrink Ray is the first Science Weapon you'll come across. It's just there, sitting on a table in Phineas Wells' lab.

The Shrink Ray has Wells' personal stamp of approval on it, guaranteed to shrink your enemies down to a size you can easily fight against.

The Gloop Gun

Gloop Gun-Science_The Outer Worlds
No one really knows what the 'gloop' from the Gloop Gun is made of, or basically how it came to be. All anyone knows is that it was left behind in Monarch.

It can make your enemies float (much like the premise of a film involving a clown and balloons) and can also inflict strong Shock damage. In that condition, they can easily be dispatched by your party.

The location of the Gloop Gun can be reached while doing the quest "Errors Unseen"
Gloop Gun-Science-2_The Outer Worlds Travel to the abandoned UDL Lab in Stellar Bay. Prepare for a fight with Marauders
Gloop Gun-Science-3_The Outer Worlds Head inside and look for the terminal where the weapon is locked. You can either Hack it or answer three questions
When asked, choose these answers to open the terminal:
  • Protect the Chairman
  • Berate him relentlessly to defend the Chairman's honor.
  • Arrest your spouse and admit your children to a reeducation program.
