Recreational (or Rec) is the fifth Deck of the Von Braun and either the fourth or the fifth visited in System Shock 2.


SHODAN instructs the Soldier that to deprive XERXES of any further power, he will have to send a warning signal to Earth from the Athletic Sector. A transmission device has been set up there by members of the Resistance, including Enrique Cortez and Marie Delacroix. Unfortunately, it is powered down and needs a code to be activated. The Soldier discovers that the code to the transmitter is hidden in the art terminals found throughout the Recreation Deck in the Mall, Garden and the Crew Quarters. While in Crew Quarters, he also finds a keycard giving access to the Athletic Sector. There, he restores power to the Sector and reaches the device. After sending off the transmission and completing the objectives on the Operations Deck, XERXES is sufficiently powerless, allowing SHODAN to unlock the elevator to the Command Deck. The Soldier proceeds there to reach the UNN Rickenbacker and stop The Many.
