Prey Walkthrough - Ascent

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 1. If you like flying the shuttle then you'll love this level. In fact, it's my favorite level of the game thus far. Start by turning around to find plasma and freeze ammo.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 2. Spirit Walk to turn off the beams and stop the leak.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 3. Harvesters are through the next door.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 4. Harvester guts. I like secondary fire from the Acid Gun or Auto Cannon for this fight. Alternately, you can try to run and call a shuttle from the pad to the left.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 5. Collect health and ammo from the catwalk.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 6. Use the dismembered hand to open the door on the right.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 7. Find an ammo locker to the right then grab some lightning or plasma for your Leech Gun to the left.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 8. Use this console to activate a portal in the previous room.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 9. Enter the room on the right and step onto this platform. Mother informs you that this Citadel is several hundred miles tall; you are at its base and Jen is at the top. Ammo as at your feet and health is behind you.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 10. Backtrack to find more harvesters.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 11. Call a shuttle and ride it to the portal upper-right.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 12. Discover that it's not really a portal at all, but a kind of shuttle elevator.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 13. Put down on this pad ahead. Be sure to keep an eye on the lasers -- you don't want the turrets firing on you as you exit the shuttle.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 14. Unfortunately there's no switch to disable the eye stalks. Fill up on lightning if you don't have some already, then trigger the turrets and destroy them.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 15. Listen in on this next Art Bell segment. Researcher Greta Caldwell theorizes that the current abductions are related to the disappearance of the ancient Anasazi.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 16. Use this console to unlock the ceiling hatch. (Note that a safer path is to Spirit Walk to this switch if you don't mind missing some goodies in this room.) A health spore, a freeze station and an ammunition locker are to the left. Rifle ammo is to the right.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 17. Call a shuttle and rise through the now-unlocked ceiling hatch.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 18. Quickly dodge the mines and other dangers to reach the next hatch, far above.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 19. Clear the debris blocking the next portal. Robots and turrets attempt to slow your progress. (If you die here, you'll return from deathwalk all the way back where you called the shuttle -- best to move quickly and avoid a fight.)

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 20. Fortunately, a landing pad is in the next room. Clear the area of threats before exiting the shuttle. Remember, you can hover over the pad to recharge the shuttle's exoskeleton integrity.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 21. Spirit Walk to grab this rifle ammo. Note the health spore ahead/left.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 22. More rifle ammo and another health spore are here. Use the console ahead to disable the alarm.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 23. Use the dismembered hand on this console to unlock the hatch ahead.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 24. Call a shuttle and fly through this pair of hatches.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 25. Find this large asteroid being mined. You need to land on the pad near the tower.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 26. Robots will try to stop you, but they spawn in finite numbers. Try taking them all out before landing.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 27. Follow this pipeline. Snipe the hunters that try to stop your progress.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 28. Activate this switch. A large crane upper-left comes to life.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 29. Call another shuttle and battle any robots that spawn, plus any determined hunters in shuttles. Stay close to the pad so you can repair.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 30. Watch the crane lifting large crates higher into the citadel.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 31. Here's where the process begins. Fortunately, there's a landing pad nearby.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 32. Defeat this hunter that spawns upon landing.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 33. Use this console to your left and unlock the hatch beyond.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 34. Defeat robots and shuttles then enter where indicated.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 35. Fly your shuttle into the box.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 36. Wait while the crane transports you farther into the Citadel. Mother checks in on your progress.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 37. Defeat the hunter, along with a nearby robot (plus another hunter that spawns) before landing. Note the health spores and Leech Gun ammo.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 38. Use this console.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 39. A new container is constructed and carried away. Ready your best harvester-stomping gun.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 40. Two harvesters spawn on your way to call a shuttle. You can either take them out on foot or hop into a shuttle to do battle.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 41. Hop in a shuttle then position it so that it will be enclosed by the next container.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 42. Wait while you are transported, then fly the shuttle up and out of the container when you see this sign and hear Tommy say, "I really should get out of here." Otherwise, the shuttle is destroyed.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 43. Defeat this hunter, his buddies and robots before landing on the pad. Find acid ammo through the portal on the right.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 44. Lots of health spores are in this area, including on the ceiling. Note the gravity switch ahead -- there's another on the ceiling if you look up, just outside this shot. Walk across and then shoot the gravity switch ahead to find yourself on the other side of this gap in the floor.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 45. Spirit Walk into the exhaust tunnel.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 46. Take out this hunter with your bow then use the console on the right to lower the force field and stop the exhaust.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 47. Return to your body, come through the tunnel then activate the console to let the exhaust and force field stop any turrets or robots on your tail.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 48. A health station is on the right, Leech Gun plasma and freeze ammo is on the left, and another Art Bell segment is straight ahead. Learn that the aliens move from planet to planet, taking food as they need it.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 49. Proceed through the door on the right.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 50. Note the ammo lockers on the right. Approach the door ahead with caution.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 51. Position yourself close enough to open the doors, but far enough away to avoid damage when you trigger the eye stalk controlling a wall mine just inside the door.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 52. Secondary fire from your Auto Cannon keeps this sleeping hound from waking up.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 53. Enter this room and defeat a pair of robots. Notice that the beams ahead are emanating from blue nodes.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 54. Shoot the nodes to terminate the beams.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 55. Once all the beams are stopped, the room goes dark. Spirit Walk to defeat these attacking wraiths.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 56. Backtrack through the dark corridors. A previously-locked door is now available. Ready your Leech Gun.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 57. Harvesters attack. Two lightning gun zaps will bring one down and this first harvester is the easiest to see.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 58. Use the rifle scope so you can see the rest. Rifle fire doesn't do much damage to the harvesters, however, so you'll need to switch to the Auto Cannon or acid gun.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 59. Once the harvesters are defeated, shoot this gravity switch.

Prey Walkthrough Screenshot 60. Defeat a pair of turrets then drop through this blue portal to load the next level.
