Prey Beginner’s Guide: Mimics

Mimics are one of the most difficult enemies in Prey. As their name says, they can mimic any item in the environment to hide and can surprise you with their attacks any time. They are very difficult as you cannot predict where they are going to come from. However, there is a trick to identify them. 

You can just look at things and think that you feel they are not suitable for the environment. A random bin or any other item in any place increases the chances of a mimic being present there. The other option is that you can just randomly hit items as there is nothing for you to lose by doing that. If a mimic is there, you will be the first one to attack.

Shotgun is just great

You can’t just run away from the enemies every time in Prey. You will need to shoot at them if you want to be safe. The shotguns are best as they can deal very high damage to the aliens and can even kill a weak one in just a single shot. You will get lots of upgrade kits in the game. Therefore, make sure you use them on shotgun, as it is the best gun you can use against the aliens in the game.

Explore rooms

We recommend you to explore all the rooms thoroughly because you can find many items there. There is a chance that you will get extra or new weapons, ammo, key cards, door codes and many other things. This is why you need to explore each room as this is not just a shooting game where you go randomly anywhere and kill the enemies. 

Go out of the spaceship

If you want to experience some great scenes and good space tour, then you will need to go outside and see it on your own. You are not just limited inside, you can go out and explore too. It is a bit less dangerous too as you won’t be facing the aliens there like how you did inside. So you will have to make some openings to go in and out whenever you need.

Don’t miss the computers

Many computers can be found throughout the game; simply utilize them when you discover them. Read other people’s emails as it will give you optional objectives and even key codes to the rooms that you do not have the access to. Some computers will even give you a full map of the area that you can download and use. A map in your hands will definitely be very beneficial.

Save ammo

You will need lots of ammos later in the game. If you are thinking that you don’t need much shooting in the game, then let us tell you that you are thinking wrong. The enemies you will face later in the game are very strong, and it will be very difficult for you to kill them without a gun. 

We recommend that you use the wrench as much as you can if you want to save the ammo. If you are trying for a stealth kill, then the wrench is the best option for you. Furthermore, you can use your environment as an advantage to attack the aliens and other enemies.
