Science weapons in The Outer Worlds are unique, reality-defying weapons. They might not deal the most damage, but they sure are fun to use.

All five science weapons require energy cell ammo. Their damage will scale with the wielder’s Tech > Science Skill. The real use of science weapons are their physics-breaking properties.

In this guide, we’ll find the mind control ray on Monarch.

On Monarch, head to Duncan in the Fallbrook Dry Goods and Supplies. The SubLight datapad he sells you will point you to an abandoned lab in Cascadia.

The weapon you’re looking for is near the terminal you access during the Space-Crime Continuum side mission for Lilya Hagen of the SubLight faction. From the terminal, turn left. Jump across to the platform, and jump to the platform to the right. Climb the two ladders to find your mind control ray.
