In System Shock 2, the Research skill is one of the most useful in the game for providing an extra edge over your enemies, and unlocking new abilities. While you'll need a single point in Research to progress through the game, there are major benefits to increasing it even a couple more points, as the damage bonuses against certain enemies and the new items you can unlock are very useful. Please use the navigation pane on the right side of the page in order to view lists of Research Objects, and a list of all Chemical locations.
