Prey Collectibles, Upgrades & Items Guide | Cargo Bay


Collect up everything in the Cargo Bay with our continuing look into all the item locations for Prey [2017].

The Cargo Bay is a relatively small storage warehouse with three major sections, and one action-packed main story quest. You’ll have to fight a small army of Typhon to gain access to the riches of Cargo Bay B, but there’s more to explore — you can collect a rare Fabrication Plan from the safe in the Talos 1 Exterior that allows you to construct the powerful portable turrets.

Unlike most areas, there’s also a large group of survivors in the central zone. Depending on your actions, you can either rescue some of these survivors, or let them die a horrible death. Like most things in Prey, it’s all up to you.
