I was working late one night, when the power went out in the Delta Repair Quad. The blast door shut down, and I couldn’t see to get the hatch open for the override crank. So while I was working on it, this security-1 ’bot comes gliding up out of the dark, not making a sound. It stopped and started scanning me. It just hung there in the air in front of me. For just a second, I swear I thought it was going to open fire. It scared the hell out of me. I hate those things...

The Security-1-Bot is an enemy encountered in System Shock.


Based on recent military designs, this airborne security enforcement robot has proven effective in protecting and patrolling virtually any region. It possesses two very potent ion pulse cannons with high-speed cooling, and its detainment claws apprehend suspicious trespassers. In addition, its program includes 12 nanoseconds of decision time for responding to threats.
~ Catalog of Robotic Assistants on Citadel Station

Security-1-Bots are robots tasked with being part of Citadel Station's security.These ones appear very frequently throught the mid of the game (levels 3,4,5,6 and 7) and can be quite an annoyance at later levels. SHODAN likes to use them as one of her backbone forces until the security level where they are replaced with their big brother the Security-2-bot.


Like most robots energy based weapons work the best. EMP grenades work well against groups of them. The MAGNUM 2100 is also a good option.
