Where to Find & Location

  • The Short Circuit can be found on Eridanos, on the small island between the Wilderness Exploitation Reserve and the Grand Colonial Hotel. Coming from the Hotel-side of the bridge, there is a patch of land left of the bridge with a cave. Inside the cave are several hostiles. Defeat them and loot the safe key from one of the corpses. Head back outside and onto the main platform on the island. There is a small building here with a hole blown on one side of the wall. The weapon is inside the safe in this building.
