Access Cards are items in System Shock 2. They are used to gain admission to certain areas and systems that are otherwise secure. There are several Access Cards of different types scattered throughout the Von Braun and UNN Rickenbacker that are needed to open locked doors, access key areas and computer systems.
Most Access Cards are found on the corpses of dead crew members ; however, some are in more secure areas as well.

The Access Cards are needed as a consequence of a state of martial law declared by Sergeant Melanie Bronson, which lead to all primary sub-sectors of the ship locked down.

Used by dragging through a card slot reader, these cards appear deceptively low-tech. However, they are designed with a triple encrypted fractal data string - the cards mutate in synch with each other over 50,000 times a second, making them nearly impossible to counterfeit.
