Prey 2017 Side Missions Guide – Locations, How to Complete, Rewards

Prey 2017 Side Missions Guide to help you complete all available side-quests in Prey reboot. During the course of your journey through the Talon I Space Station, you will come across several optional objectives. While you can totally ignore these Prey 2017 side-quests and continue with the Main Missions, I do not recommend doing so. These optional missions not only reward you with several rewards for completing them but also carry details about the game’s world that you would otherwise miss.

Prey 2017 revolves around Morgan Yu in the moon-orbiting space station called Talos I that houses a research into a hostile alien collective called the Typhon. Eventually, the Typhon escapes confinement and you are to escape the Talos I while dealing with the aliens using a number of weapons and abilities. The entire Talos I is an open-world to the players with progression requiring key items, codes, and other things.

Prey 2017 Side Missions

Everything you know is about to Change
Location: Neuromod Division, Foyer
Speak to January to learn about an array of Neuromods. Once done, deal with the Mimics in the area and proceed towards the display case with a skull on it. Now all you need to do is to break the display case and collect the items inside. Neuromods allow you to unlock additional skills to become better in combat and gain other utility benefits. I recommend you check out our Prey 2017 Neuromods Guide attached above for more information!

Stolen Neuromods
Location: Talos 1 Lobby, Security Holding Area
In order to enter the area, you either need the Security Office Keycard in I.T. Security or crawl through a vent directly above the door. Once inside, find a note that has the code to the Holding Cell. To do so, get rid of the Mimic and read the note followed by heading to Kimura’s office in the Sales Area of the Lobby. Do note that you will need a few things to make it to the Sales Area.

Once there, catch Kimura’s phantom form by surprise while keeping a close eye on the Mimics nearby. After done, check Kimura’s office to get four Neuromods under her desk and check her computer for some additional information. Lastly, while you are there, head inside Randolph’s back offices to find a Huntress Boltcaster.

You need to head to the Trauma Center and enter the office of Mathias Kohl. Once inside, start the ‘Behavioral Test’ on the computer and answer in this order: A, C, B, A, C. After you are done, progress through the story until you access the Arboretum and acquire the ‘Lift Interference’ optional objective. At this point, follow the marker to the office of Hendrick DeVries and defeat a Technopath in the area. Now search the area to find a keycard and complete the mission.

The Blackbox Project
For this optional side-quest, you need to complete the Breach Access. Once you are done with it, enter the Beams and Waves Lab to activate a terminal and receive the optional objective.
