Where to find the Laser Rapier in System Shock Remake

If you’re stuck in a space station with numerous hostile robots, cyborgs, and mutants, you should find as many weapons as possible, and the Laser Rapier is definitely worth your attention in the System Shock Remake. In order to get it, you will need to explore the Maintenance level.

Search for the Gamma Maintenance room and look to the right of its entrance. There you will find a ladder. Jump on it, climb up, and fight the robot that you will encounter. After that, you will find the room with the Laser Rapier. Here’s the location of the ladder we mentioned:

This rapier has a unique feature. Its blade copies the colour of your UI when you pick it up. So, before you enter the room and take this Laser Rapier, change the colour of your UI to the one you like. After you activate the weapon, the blade will be painted in this colour for the rest of the game.
