The Cyborg Assassin is a cyborg enemy encountered in System Shock.


The Cyborg Assassin is covered in completely black gear, making him hard to spot in the dark. First encountered on the Hospital Level, they use a silent rifle when the Hacker is at range. When closer, the assassin starts throwing shurikens.


The shuriken can be deflected with weapon fire before they hit the player. Teflon rounds from the Minipistol should be sufficient enough to kill them.
