How to Get the Huntress Boltcaster in Prey

It's not very useful for combat situations, but learn how to get this weapon that can be useful for causing distractions and pushing buttons from long distance.


The Huntress Boltcaster is a useful tool for hitting any buttons at a distance, but also for distracting enemies. It's not something you'll want in a combat situation, since it causes no damage to enemies, but it's still a handy weapon to have around. It can be found in many areas, but here's the easiest way to pick it up.

How to Get the Huntress Boltcaster

The first chance to find the Huntress Boltcaster comes after escaping the Neuromod Division and reaching Morgan Yu’s office. Here you’ll be tasked with searching Dr. Lorenzo Calvino's office.

Whenever you get this objective, exit Morgan's office and walk through the Teleconferencing Center across from the walkway. You won't want to get spotted, so you can either use your Silenced Pistol or find the Turret outside of Morgan's office, placing it outside the Teleconferencing Center door. Open it up and let the Turret do all the work for you.

After everything is clear, walk through the Teleconferencing Center and exit the other side. You can turn left to find the Hardware Labs entrance, but you can come back to that later. Instead, turn right and head across the walkway to the other end to find an entrance to the Sales Division.

Head inside and deal with the Phantom however you wish, even it means just sneaking around it. Keep an eye out for the office that belongs to Kelly Randolph, which should be identified by the plaque on the window. The Huntress Boltcaster will be inside her office and behind her desk.

Uses for the Huntress Boltcaster

Have we mentioned that the Huntress Boltcaster causes no damage to enemies? Because it doesn't. No, it's more of a useful tool for distracting foes, which is crucial to taking any kind of stealth route. It’ll also come in handy later in the game when it's time to hit buttons and screens from long distance.

Think of it this way. You're not going to fight off dozens of enemies with this thing... or even a single enemy. But if you want to attempt a pacifist run, this is the weapon you'll want.
