The Virus Mutant (also recognized as Humanoid Mutant) is an enemy encountered in System Shock.


Virus Mutants are mutants created by the V-5 Mutagen Virus. They are the predecessors of Hybrids.


Flechettes, Assault Rifles, and Dartguns tend to work well against these enemies. Think of them like upgraded versions of Humanoid Mutants.
