There are a number of enhancements you can make to your character in System Shock Remake that effectively grant you new abilities. These upgrades are recovered throughout Citadel Station in the form of Hardware Attachments. This guide will outline the location of each of them, as well as their duplicates, and what they have to offer to you.

Biological Systems Monitor V1

The Biological Systems Monitor V1 displays the user’s health status.

On the Medical Deck in the Delta Quadrant. In one of the rooms on the left of main hallway is the Biological Systems Monitor V1 lying on a table.

Biological Systems Monitor V2

This advanced Bio-Scan V2 displays precise information about stimulants including the remaining dose in the user’s system.

  • On the Systems Engineering Deck in the Delta Quadrant. In one of the small rooms here you will find the Biological Systems Monitor V2 just lying on the ground in plain sight.
  • On the Reactor Deck in the Central sector near the Access Panels. Head into the back room to find the Biological Systems Monitor V2 on some shelves opposite the Surgery Machine. 

Energy/Projectile Shield V1

The Energy/Projectile Shield V1 absorbs a minor amount of damage from projectiles and energy beams at the expense of energy.

  • On the Third Floor of the Security Deck, to the south-east. Enter the crawlspace and descend the ladder to find the Energy/Projectile Shield V2 lying on the ground in plain sight.
  • In the Delta Grove dome of the Executive Deck, head to the east. In the last room here is the Energy/Projectile Shield V2 lying on the counter to the right of the door.

  • On the Systems Engineering Deck to the south-east of the Core. Lying on top of a table in a small room here is the Energy/Projectile Shield V3.

Environmental Protection Pack V1 Biohazard

The Environmental Protection Pack V1 protects the user from biological contamination at the expense of energy.

  • Make your way to the Storage Deck of Citadel Station. You will need to source the three-digit access code for the room containing the suit first. Begin by going to Storage Room #6 to the very south of the deck. Lying here in plain sight to the right of the entrance, is an audio log titled “Enviro-Packs” from Sabo Engle, which will inform you that the first digit of the code is 8. Next up in Storage Room #2 to the east of the deck. Lying in plain sight once again, next to a headless corpse is an audio log titled “Stashed Packs” from Greg MacLeod. The garbled audio says that the last digit of the code is also 8. Now head to Storage Room #9 in the east of the Storage level. The keypad to the left of the door is where you will be punching in the code to access the room. While you now know both first and last digits, the middle number is going to have to be guessed through trial and error. Once opened, make your way inside to find a number of items including the Environmental Protection Pack V1 for biohazards.

Environmental Protection Pack V2 Biohazard & Radiation

This advanced Enviro Pack V2 protects the user from radiation in addition to biological contamination at the expense of energy.

  • On the Maintenance Deck in the Central sector, near the Access Panels to the south-east. Use the switch on the rear right wall to access the tiny room with the Environmental Protection Pack V2 lying on a table inside.

Micro Pocket Dimension V2

The Micro Pocket Dimension provides additional inventory space.

  • The second upgrade to your inventory capacity is a little more complex to acquire. The module is located in one of the three massive domes on the Executive Deck. The section, known as Delta Grove, has a man-sized chess set in its center. Playing as green, you will need to win a game that is already in progress against the AI playing the orange pieces, in order to unlock a door to the rear right of the room with the Micro Pocket Dimension V2 inside. Like many of the puzzles in the game, there is no single solution, especially since the piece locations are randomized for each playthrough. You can elect to save-scum it, and then win through trial and error. If you choose to play it fair and square, note that losing the game resets the board, forcing you to play a full round from start to finish. Winning also nets you the En Passant achievement.
