The Cyborg Elite Guard is a cyborg enemy encountered in System Shock, and is also one of the strongest.

Overview

The Elite Guards are one of the most dangerous enemies in the game and are the personal bodyguards of SHODAN. They wear a black helmet with red goggles and a black backpack, and are equipped with a plasma cannon mounted on its right arm. They attack with the plasma cannon at close and medium ranges, and a red energy ball projectile from the helmet at long distances.

Strategy

Unfortunately, their first attack with the plasma cannon is unavoidable, so it's advised to kill them before they notice you and nail you with the cannon in the first place. They die with 3-4 hits with the Laser Rapier on the most difficult combat setting but can also kill the player with a few shots on the same difficulty (4-5).

If engaging them from a distance you will want to bring your most powerful weapons. A Mag-Pulse Rifle is recommended for its armor penetration abilities, or a Rail Gun for the massive amount of damage it packs. They are also one of the few enemies worth the risk of breaking out the Plasma Rifle for. Finally if you happen to have a Concussion Bomb or two to spare, Elite Guards are excellent candidates for using them on.

Levels Encountered

Normally, the Elite Guards are exclusively encountered on the bridge guarding SHODAN's Cyberspace Terminal, but at higher difficulty settings can be found inhabiting the security level as well.
