The Outer Worlds Weapons From The Void: How to find Shrink Ray, Gloop Gun and Prismatic Hammer!

The Outer Worlds How To Find The Weapons From The Void

How to collect all the Weapons From The Void in The Outer Worlds including the Shrink Ray, Gloop Gun and Prismatic Hammer.

The Outer Worlds is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, but Nintendo Switch fans needn't threat about missing out on the fun as it will arrive on the handheld console sometime in 2020. But, for those who can enjoy the best Fallout game since New Vegas right now, below you'll find a guide for locating all the Weapons From The Void such as the Shrink Ray, Gloop Gun and Prismatic Hammer.

Although The Outer Worlds has received a lot of praise for its fantastic companions, weighty choices and depth as opposed to size, another of its great aspects is its arsenal of weapons.

And, to get the very best out of your experience as captain Alex Hawthorne of the Unreliable (say it with pride like captain Jack Sparrow), you're going to want to find all of the Weapons From The Void - the Shrink Ray in particular because it's so easy to get.

The Outer Worlds: How to start the Weapons From The Void quest

Before you go prancing about the galaxy in search of Weapons From The Void while holding hands with Parvati because she's awesome, you first need to actually pick up the quest.

In order to do this you need to first complete the Comes The Power Now mission for which you can find a guide for by clicking here. And yes, we tell you the supposed best outcome from choosing between Edgewater and the Biotanical Lab.

Once you've completed the Comes The Power Now mission in order to actually fly the Unreliable, you'll want to then head into the old captain Hawthorne's quarters to access his computer.

Simply select and read through all of his files to pick up the quest.

The Outer Worlds Weapons From The Void Shrink Ray

The Shrink Ray is the first science weapon you should pick up in The Outer Worlds; both because of logistics and because it's simply fun.

All you need to do is venture to Phineas' Lab once you've got the Unreliable in working order. Once there you should find the shifty scientist behind some glass so you can't brutally strangle him and screw up Obsidian's narrative.

Essentially look towards the right of where Phineas is and you should find the Shrink Ray.

After picking up the Shrink Ray from Phineas' Lab, you should then proceed onward with the narrative by heading to the Groundbreaker - where you can pick up both Ellie and Felix as companions, as well as the Prismatic Hammer.

In order to find this weapon you will need to buy the Battered Mardet datapad from Gladys; you'll easily be able to find her in the Black Market.

Once you've done that follow the directions to a hidden room where you will have to climb atop some crates and crouch through a hole that is swarming with outlaws.

Dispose of these criminals in whatever way you deem fit and then head through a door on the right to find the Prismatic Hammer.

The Outer Worlds Weapons From The Void Gloop Gun

The Gloop Gun is the hardest science weapon to get in The Outer Worlds meaning it makes perfect sense for us to talk about it third rather than last.

When you've landed on Monarch, head to the UDL Laboratory to the Southwest of Stellar Bay.

Take out all of the marauders and access the terminal that is connected to unlock the Gloop Gun behind a case. To access this terminal you will need 100 hacking or a terminal card.

This terminal card can be found on the second floor on a desk. As soon as you've found this card, proceed to the terminal once more and select Unlock Gloop Gun Containment Unit.

If hacking isn't your savvy, simply enter the following three answers to bypass:

  • Protect the chairman
  • Berate him relentlessly to defend the chairman's honour
  • Arrest your spouse and admit your children to a re-education program

Sticking to Monarch, venture to the Fallbrook Dry Goods and Supplies to chit-chat with Duncan. There you will need to buy the SubLight datapad to receive directions to Cascadia.

If you're seeking this weapon in conjunction with the Space-Crime Continuum side mission (which you can pick up from Groundbreaker through Lilya Hagen), you will find the Mind Control Ray inside the Rizzo Secret Laboratory.

When using the terminal required for this quest, simply turn left to find a gap. Jump across the platform, climb a ladder, jump and climb again and you should find the Mind Control Ray next to a dead body.

Finally, we move onto another of the least difficult Weapons From The Void to pick up.

To get this weapon you must buy the Hephaestus Mining Archive Cartridge from Gladys on Groundbreaker. Once you've bought the datapad review it on the Unreliable in your bedroom.

Venture to Scylla and follow the waypoint to the Abandoned Mining Outpost. Just take out the enemies and pick the baton up.

The Outer Worlds is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
