APEX is a character in Shadowrun: Dragonfall.
Background[edit | edit source]
An AI designed by Saeder-Krupp, it was later abandoned and then shackled by Dr. Adrian Vauclair to defend his facility at Harfeld Manor. It seeks to free itself... and to dominate the Matrix. It has killed many deckers, including Monika.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
- Freeing or destroying APEX is the main objective of APEX Rising.
- It is tempting to listen to its promises of assistance, but in reality, APEX does not make the quest easy. Its assistance in the Matrix during APEX Rising is irrelevant if you choose to activate the two terminals manually, while its "assistance" at Harfeld Manor later really just consists of killing 3 guards and hacking 4 turrets.
- If you release it, you can let it have Feuerschwinge. Refuse, and things may get ugly...
- Given Saeder-Krupp's disdain for AI, and Hans Brackhaus's revelation that it was him who tipped off Winters, it is not hard to guess that Lofwyr himself wanted to tie up this particular loose end.
