How to get Prey’s Golden Gun

You’ve heard of Prey’s GLOO Gun. You’re probably aware there’s a shotgun knocking around somewhere too. But who wants them when you can have a golden gun? It does slightly more damage than the silenced pistol and fires quietly too, so think of it as an upgraded version - plus it’s gold, for Christ’s sake. If this blingin’ weapon has tickled your tastebuds, then give our video a watch because we’ll tell you exactly where to find it. 

First off, start in the leafy Arboretum. Head to the looking glass viewing area and mourn the fact that the scene selector isn’t working. Now SMASH IT. Step over the shards and make your way down the short tunnel. Try not to get freaked out by the ominously falling boxes - and definitely prepare yourself for the two mimics that’ll pop up. Once you’ve made them go bye-bye, create a route up to the top of the shaft with the GLOO Gun.

Climb up and you’ll see a crate with some goodies in it, but more importantly there’s the remains of Julien Howard. Once you listen to this transcribe about growing a superfruit another audio log will be added to your inventory. Now you’ll have an audio log from Captain Jada Marks to Marietta Kyrkos to listen to. She’s requesting - rather bluntly - to bring her golden gun to the Bridge. The keycode will be transmitted to you, so it’s time to finish what Kyrkos started. 

Head to the Crew Quarters - you’ll need to go down to Deep Storage to get the keycard off Zachary West. Go down to the foyer, turn left, and make your way forward before turning left again to Crew Cabins A. There’s an electro phantom and a mimic patrolling the corridors, so you might want to take them out first. Captain Mark’s cabin is on the right. Open the door, stroll in, and open the safe with the keycode. Voila! Her golden gun is now yours. It adds an element of class to your playthrough. Or should that be prey-through? See what I did there? Ok, I’ll stop now. Sorry.
