Mimic Matter is a Typhon ability gained through the use of Neuromods in Prey (2017) once the player has the Psychoscope.


Mimic Matter lets Morgan Yu turn into everyday objects, like a cup or a dumpster. While in this form, Morgan can move around the environment, solve puzzles and even use other abilities. The ability is gained by researching Mimics. As long as Morgan stays still, enemies will not be able to find them.

This ability is particularly useful to access rooms with damaged doors when it is impossible to repair it (either because the Repair ability is not available or because of a lack of Spare Parts).
