Prey (2017) Edit
The Artax Propulsion System can be used to quickly access new areas of the station by bypassing the interior and heading straight for an airlock. It also can be used to prevent freefall damage if player is inside station especially when falling down from top floor to bottom floor on Reactor Room at Power Plant that usually results in Instant Kill without Propulsion System regardless player's HP even upgraded with Toughness III.
Player can also receive object impact damage if using Artax Propulsion System too fast and impacting a solid object on Zero G space and the damage is calculated based on how fast player speeds up similar to freefall damage. The freefall damage is pure and calculated based on percentage of player's HP but can be sustained at least 15-20 Health points each time player suffers freefall damage.
The APS has two possible upgrades. The ARTX Propulsion Gen 1 chipset increases the APS’s glide speed, and the Gen 2 upgrade adds a jet boost ability to it.
The Artax Propulsion System is quite valuable when exploring the Crater of the Moon base of Pytheas, since it enables its user, when combined with the low gravity, to jump from rock to rock, thus avoiding to walk on the regolith and to alert the Moon Sharks of their presence. Vijay Bhatia has an Artax Propulsion System in his default equipment. All other characters embodied by Peter must either find it or craft it (if the plan has been found).
