This is a Prey weapons page on the T-SQPB-S11 Quasiparticle Beam, or Q-Beam for short. Here you’ll find information about the weapons used in the 2017 sci-fi game, Prey.

The T-SQPB-S11 Quasiparticle Beam is an experimental weapon that can trigger an explosive chain reaction when aimed at a group of Typhon. An experimental weapon in itself, the Q-Beam supercharges a foe with unstable energy.
The Quasiparticle beam is said to be hidden somewhere that no one is normally going to find it, and can be found either earlier or later in the game depending on player choice. You can find it in a maintenance access panel in the building with the HARDWARE sign. You’ll find it upon going for a spacewalk. If you see the golden manticore, you’re very near.
Using the Q-beam means igniting an enemy with energy, lighting it green until it becomes unstable. Once it reaches critical mass, the enemy explodes. This means that fighting enemies using the q-beam requires that the monster be stunned or immobilized for better efficiency.
