The Holographic Shroud in Outer Worlds is a helpful device that helps a person mask their identity by hiding their face and fingerprints. In this Outer Worlds guide, we will discuss where and how to use Holographic Shrouds and the various ID cartridges locations.
How to Use the Holographic Shroud in The Outer Worlds
The Holographic Shroud is one of the most valuable tools to help you throughout your Outer Worlds journey. You will first locate this tool in the Passage to Anywhere mission. This tool is located inside the Captain’s Quarters on the second floor of The Unreliable.
The Holographic Shroud works with the help of ID cartridges. Unfortunately, there are no specific buttons or controls to use this tool. Instead, it would be best to have the appropriate ID cartridge to get it working.
As soon as you get your hands on the correct Cartridge, the tool will automatically hide your identity when you enter any restricted areas.
Once your identity is masked, you can navigate through the area, but you will only have a specific period in which you can navigate through the site undetected.
The more that you move, your disguise will wear off faster. You can keep an eye on how much time you have under your mask with the help of the purple bar that appears at the bottom of the screen.
If your mask wears off while you’re inside the restricted area, You will have to wait for a guard to approach you and then talk your way out of the situation with the dialog test. This will give your Holographic Shroud more time to recharge.
ID Cartridge Locations
There are several ID cartridges that you will need for your Holographic Shroud. Below we have discussed each ID cartridge location.
