Here’s how to find all ten Skully locations hidden throughout Citadel in System Shock Remake.
Before You Begin – Potential Softlocks
I’m not sure yet if the skulls you find are saved across playthroughs. If they aren’t, then make sure you haven’t been softlocked! There are a couple of sections where, if you’re not careful, you’ll need to load a previous save:
- Levels R to 7: To avoid missing these skulls, don’t leave the elevator room connecting Engineering to Security.
- Level 8: Don’t enter the elevator connecting Security to Bridge before picking up the skull on this level.
- Level 9: Don’t progress through the section unlocked by using a certain key item – the Isolinear Chipset.
It is highly likely that you will need Jump Jets v3 to successfully reach a few of these skulls.
Having the increased jump height makes maneuvering much easier.
Proceed at your own risk.
Level R – Reactor
Go to the westernmost section of the area. You will notice a gap in the ceiling. Jump up there to reach the skull.
Level 1 – Medical
Leave the room with the cargo lift and take the first door to your left. Proceed straight until you reach a left turn. There will be a dead body there. Look up to find the skull.
Level 2 – Research
Leave the room with the recycler and take the first door to your left. You will notice a ledge next to a door across from you. Get on that ledge and jump up again to reach an alcove where the skull is located.
Level 3 – Maintenance
Leave the room with the cargo lift and take the second door to your right. Walk straight ahead and step through the next door. Then, turn right and proceed down the hallway. At the end of the hallway, you will see an opening above with the skull.
Level 4 – Storage
From the recycler, look southeast. You will notice a small door above. Jump from the crates below and while in midair, crouch to crawl inside the door.
Level 5 – Flight Deck
Head to bay 1 in the northernmost section. Jump on the ship, and from there, jump again to reach the balcony above.
Level 6 – Executive
From the power station, look east down the hall. Take the second door to your left. Inside this room, you will notice a gap in the ceiling.
Level 7 – Engineering
From the central section connecting all four quadrants, jump on the southern metal supports until you reach the skull.
Level 8 – Security
From the northern force bridge leading to the Bridge elevator, look south toward the central tower. You will notice an alcove slightly down to your left on this central tower. Glide there and open the door to find the skull.
Level 9 – Bridge
From the mod-kit station, look north and you will see an opening in the ceiling. Jump up the ledge to reach the opening and find the final skull.
