Once you’re inside the lab, go to the very end of the lab where you should be able to take an elevator to the surface. Don’t take the elevator and jump across the gap on the right of the elevator to a ladder followed by another jump and a ladder.
Eventually, you should reach a dead scientist with a safe right next to him. This is where you’ll find the Science Weapon in The Outer Worlds.
5. Prismatic Hammer
You should’ve no difficulty knocking back your targets with this 2-Handed Melee weapon. To find the final Science Weapon in The Outer Worlds, you need to head over to Gladys on the Groundbreaker and purchase the Battered Mardet Datapad.
Once done, head over to customs and find Stevadore’s beds. Jump on the beds and drop down behind them to find some enemies. Deal with them quickly and acquire the Repair Hanger Keycard from the Outlaw Squad Leader. The keycard should allow you to open up the locked door containing the Prismatic Hammer.
Finding all 5 Science Weapons in The Outer Worlds will complete the Weapons from the Void and reward you with 14,000 XP.
