How To Find The Shrink Ray in Outer Worlds

Shrink Ray in Outer Worlds

Science weapons in The Outer Worlds are amazing, reality-defying weapons. They might not be well known for causing the most damage, but they sure are fun to use.

There are five science weapons to discover in The Outer Worlds. All five require energy cell ammo. Their damage will scale with the wielder’s tech > science skill. The real use of science weapons is their physics-breaking properties.

In this guide, we’ll find your first science weapon, the shrink ray, in Phineas’ Lab.

Once you get your ship fixed at the end of the main quest Stranger in a Strange Land, go to your quarters on the Unreliable. Read through the notes on your terminal to get to know that Hawthorne had been trying to track down some science weapons. One is in Phineas’ Lab.

Fly the Unreliable to Phineas’ Lab, and go inside. There are a lot of things to distract you here, but your destination is the counter right in front of Phineas. Go to him, and look just a little to your right.


The shrink ray deals plasma damage, but it also makes your target miniature for a few seconds. They’re barely harder to hit, but their armor and damage are also decreased. Increasing your tech > science skills will improve the amount of reduction.
