Discover that it's not really a portal at all, but a kind of shuttle elevator.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 583
Prey Walkthrough - Prey 583

Put down on this pad ahead. Be sure to keep an eye on the lasers -- you don't want the turrets firing on you as you exit the shuttle.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 584
Prey Walkthrough - Prey 584

Unfortunately there's no switch to disable the eye stalks. Fill up on lightning if you don't have some already, then trigger the turrets and destroy them.

Listen in on this next Art Bell segment. Researcher Greta Caldwell theorizes that the current abductions are related to the disappearance of the ancient Anasazi.

Quickly dodge the mines and other dangers to reach the next hatch, far above.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 589
Prey Walkthrough - Prey 589

Clear the debris blocking the next portal. Robots and turrets attempt to slow your progress. (If you die here, you'll return from deathwalk all the way back where you called the shuttle -- best to move quickly and avoid a fight.)

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 590
Prey Walkthrough - Prey 590

Fortunately, a landing pad is in the next room. Clear the area of threats before exiting the shuttle. Remember, you can hover over the pad to recharge the shuttle's exoskeleton integrity.

Hop in a shuttle then position it so that it will be enclosed by the next container.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 612
Prey Walkthrough - Prey 612

Wait while you are transported, then fly the shuttle up and out of the container when you see this sign and hear Tommy say, "I really should get out of here." Otherwise, the shuttle is destroyed.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 613

Defeat this hunter, his buddies and robots before landing on the pad. Find acid ammo through the portal on the right.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 614
Prey Walkthrough - Prey 614

Lots of health spores are in this area, including on the ceiling. Note the gravity switch ahead -- there's another on the ceiling if you look up, just outside this shot. Walk across and then shoot the gravity switch ahead to find yourself on the other side of this gap in the floor.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 615

Spirit Walk into the exhaust tunnel.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 618
Prey Walkthrough - Prey 618

A health station is on the right, Leech Gun plasma and freeze ammo is on the left, and another Art Bell segment is straight ahead. Learn that the aliens move from planet to planet, taking food as they need it.

Position yourself close enough to open the doors, but far enough away to avoid damage when you trigger the eye stalk controlling a wall mine just inside the door.

Secondary fire from your Auto Cannon keeps this sleeping hound from waking up.

Prey Walkthrough - Prey 628
Prey Walkthrough - Prey 628

Use the rifle scope so you can see the rest. Rifle fire doesn't do much damage to the harvesters, however, so you'll need to switch to the Auto Cannon or acid gun.
