Psychoscope Item Guide


The psychoscope is one of the most important items in-game. This breakthrough in technology measures paranormal brain activity and scans living matter. This headgear allows you to learn and mimic the powers of the aliens you find on Talos-1. However, scanning takes quite longer than usual, and the typhon are very dangerous creatures. It is best to use it wisely.

The psychoscope can be found on a corpse in psychotronics. You have to head down a GLOO-covered hole and find the corpse of Januz Joszef underneath the men’s locker room.

When you scan a monster or a being, you will obtain some data. These include research points, weaknesses, immunities, and scannable powers. For example:
