A Recycler Charge is grenade-type weapon found on Talos I during Prey (2017) and on Pytheas during Prey: Mooncrash.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A Recycler Charge is a special grenade that creates a temporary field that resembles a naked singularity. During the attraction phase, the singularity draws nearby matter into itself. When the attraction phase ends, no more matter is drawn into the singularity, and the expulsion phase begins. During the expulsion phase, a manipulation of quantum gravity then greatly lessens and reverses the gravitational pull of the singularity, which leads to a good part (but not all) of the previously absorbed matter to be repulsed from the singularity as chunks of crafting resources. The device is basically a portable, lower-yield single-use Material Recycler.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Recycler Charge can be used to clear debris and radioactive waste out of the way; turning the objects into resources at the same time. It can even be used to remove obstructions with high Leverage requirements if Morgan does not have the required skill. Care must be taken when using it, as useful objects such as weapons and even staff corpses will be recycled if they are caught in the blast.

The Recycler Charge is the most lethal weapon if used correctly, it can instantly kill Morgan Yu in a single explosion even with Toughness III upgraded. When combined with the GLOO Cannon, the Recycler Charge can stick to enemies dealing 200 damage.

The Recycler Charge can also come in handy if the player's inventory is full as they can drop their items in one spot and throw it and turn it into materials without the need of a Material Recycler. In the game, the amount of material yielded by recycling objects with a recycler charge is most positively correlated to the amount of objects pulled into the singularity.

The Chipset RECYCLER SHIELDING (*) 19.4GHZ renders Morgan completely immune to damage from Recycler Charges.
