Deathloop has celebrated its one year anniversary and as part of the celebration, Arkane has launched Update Goldenloop, which adds a bunch of new content to the game, including the new Halps Prototype Weapon. This update also coincides with the game’s launch on Xbox Series X | S as part of Xbox Game Pass. The new Halps weapon is a battery-powered laser that can quickly burn enemies. This powerful weapon will make a great addition to your arsenal, whether this is your first playthrough or iteration. This is where you can find the Halps Prototype Weapon.
Halps Prototype Weapon
One of the new additions to Deathloop with the Golden Loop update is the Halps Prototype Weapon, which fires a focused laser beam that scorches enemies. This new weapon can be found in The Compound, in Dr. Wenjie’s lab. To find the weapon, enter the lab from the green building, which can be found on the left side of the lab. When you enter the building, there is a small room in the corner, right in front of you as you enter. Inside is the Halps Prototype Weapon, along with two security cameras.
Do not hack the camera, as you’ll need them to function properly by either unboxing and holding the weapon. It’s best to find a way to get Halps in the morning, when Wenjie isn’t at her lab. The first method is to activate the laser by pulling the left lever, followed by the right laser. If the camera hasn’t been hacked, it will turn red and focus on you. You need to point the camera to point the laser towards its charging station, this will break and open the case. You will probably get killed by the laser in the process, so make sure you have the replay slate and still active. The reprise is given to you at the start of the game and equipped automatically, but if you’ve run out of reps by the time you get to the lab, that shouldn’t be a problem.
Another method of getting the Halps Prototype Weapon back is to return to The Compound at night, when Dr. Wenjie takes it out of its case. The downside here is that Dr. Wenjie will be in her lab, so you’ll have to fight a few clones to get the weapon.
The Halps Prototype Weapon uses batteries, so you’ll need to recharge it via a battery or battery station to get a full charge. It can be fired at sensors and turrets, which will redirect lasers wherever they are pointing. The weapon can be fired multiple times before running out of power and knocking down enemies quickly, so it’s a great weapon to help you break the loop.
