In Prey, weapons are rare or at least the ammunition can go out. For this reason, it is advisable to focus on the forces. In the game, you will find newcomers and these allow new skills to be unlocked. In the beginning you have a lot of human powers at your disposal, but later you can access Typhon skills and then it becomes really exciting.
The use of typhon abilities sometimes attracts the attention of the aliens, especially the nightmare typhon. The more Alien Neuromods you install, the more you are also perceived by the guns of the Talos as Typhon . They will attack you some time. So be careful and decide which alien powers you want to activate. You probably don’t need it all.
But there are good reasons why these skills should not be ignored. For example: opponents are transformed into items, as well as the Mimic,. You can also learn your ability through a simple pinstripe in the eye. This ability is then called Mimikry and allows you to transform into a small object and get into a room through small openings. In addition, you can "cross-match" enemies. Combine your mimicry with kinetic explosion, you can even reach elevated positions.
In addition, you can combine some of these forces with the Gloo Cannon. For example: with the foam you set a group of these nimble little mimics and throw a thermal bomb on this grouping - BOOM! The opponents are all dead.
If you want to deal with the abilities, you will consume Psi, which is why the essential forces are ether absorption and thermal absorption. These allow you to convert 50% of a particular damage taken into Psi. This can save your life in one place or another.
Abilities can be combined and that is the keyword. As with Dishonored, you can also use the skills of Prey to complement them. Here you can let your creativity run wild.
All Abilities at a Glance
Human abilities are very important because they allow you to perform basic actions. For example, you can handle hacking and security measures - sounds a bit like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. You can also improve the effectiveness of the medication and increase your strength so you can lift heavy things and use them as weapons. Therefore, don’t, underestimate these possibilities and calmly devote a large part of your attention to them.
