Expand Your Prey Abilities With All The Neuromod Locations We’ve Found So Far

Prey 2 Logo

Unlock and upgrade knowledge (or paranormal abilities) with neuromods in Prey [2017]. Here, find all the locations we’ve found so far as we explore the Talos 1 station.

Neuromods are the bread-and-butter of upgrades in Prey. If you want to lift heavier objects, get better at hacking, or increase your HP and damage output — you’re going to need neuromods, and lots of them. You’ll eventually unlock the ability to manufacture your own neuromods, but the station is littered with free upgrade points.

Want to make sure you don’t miss out? Check all the locations below, and return soon as we update with the latest finds and secret spots.
