The Outer Worlds Shrink Ray

The Shrink Ray is the first of science weapons you can find. And this guide will show you how to get it!

To get the shrink ray, you will have to make your way to Dr. Phineas Welles’ lab. To get to the lab, you first repair your ship at the end of main quest Stranger in a Strange Land.

After the repair, head to your quarters on the ship and go through the notes on the terminal which will show that someone has been trying to track down some weapons in Dr. Phineas’ lab.

Now to reach the lab, you will need to complete some quests in order to gain a Navkey which unlocks travel through the entire Halycon. Once you have the key, make your way to the lab. Head inside and talk to Dr. Phineas. He will give you another task but before starting that you can get hold of the shrink ray.

Approach the counter in front of Phineas and grab the gun. That’s it! The weapon is now yours. There will be no type of penalty for picking the weapon.

The Shrink ray deals plasma damage and also shrinks your enemy for a small time. Increasing your science skill will increase the time the enemies are shrunk for
