Severed Heads are items found in System Shock.


Gruesome relics of SHODAN's hostile takeover of Citadel Station, these gory remains of the crew serve no useful purpose in the game.

Even if the Heads are useless items (with one significant exception), they are marked in green colour in General inventory and show no VAPORIZE button on the ITEM tabs, thus need to be disposed of in a different way. They can be destroyed using even the weakest weapons such as Lead Pipe, the Dart Pistol or the Stun Gun, however using the SparqBeam set on a very low energy setting seems to be the most convenient option.
