System Shock Remake: Tips and Tricks

  1. Don't forget to save the game frequently. It is very easy to die in System Shock Remake or make a mistake, e.g. by losing a quest item.
  2. Manage your inventory wisely. It has a limited capacity and even after expanding it is still relatively small. Get rid of unnecessary things or turn them into scrap to get credits.
  3. Always carry medicines. The hero's health doesn't auto-regenerate. It can also drop to zero really fast. You can get medicines as loot or by buying them.
  4. Use Restoration Bays and Power Stations. They restore health and energy respectively. Using them is free.
  5. Carefully explore all locations. It is easy to miss important collectibles, such as keycards, unique weapons or key items.
  6. Destroy traps from a distance. The dangerous are, e.g. moving small robots that explode and cause huge damage when they approach the hero.
