Reclaimed Piston Information

“A chunk of scrap that fell from decommissioned rocketry components during their disposal. While not exactly a CREO tool of any notable function, it nevertheless has a solid heft and could be used for basic self-defense.”



Reclaimed Piston Location/ Where to find

  • You are issued the Reclaimed Piston when you start the game. 

Reclaimed Piston Notes & Tips

  • While it doesn't do a whole lot of damage, it is enough to get you through the initial starting area - if you use a sprinting slide-attack against the cutter drones, you can kill most of them in one hit.
  • Does not have enough Impact force to stagger enemies early on - plan on switching to the ASTir Vibro-Cutter or ASTir SpectreBite as soon as you can.
