The Cyborg Assassin is an enemy encountered in System Shock.


The Cyborg Assassin is completely covered in 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.


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