Where to Find & Location

  • Head to Rizzo Secret Laboratory in Cascadia. You'll access this for the quest Space-Crime Continuum. Go through the whole lab until the very end by a lift heading back to the surface. Go toward the lift and look right - there's a gap to jump across, leading to a ladder, another jump and another ladder. You'll find a dead scientist and a safe that contains Mind Control Ray

Mind Control Ray Notes

  • Increasing your Science skill improves the movement and attack rate of those controlled.
  • The Mind Control Ray's firing sound can be made out as the beginning part of the Spacer's Choice jingle (It's not the best choice it's not the best choice it's not the best choice.) Repeating and sped up as the ammo count drains.

      The thing about this weapon is that the enemy that you control become your ally for a short time as long as your magazine is not empty. However, the one you control doesn't senselessly attack enemy, but instead find cover and shoot which to me is a waste of time since i don't care about this enemy and want it to do as much damage as possible. Also, enemy know my location immediately when i shoot the beam which make it unable to stealth when using this weapon.
