Shadowrun Wiki

Orifice is a hire-able Shadowrunner in Shadowrun (SNES).


Orifice is basically a stronger version of Hamfist, minus the decker skills but with a slightly better attack. For the price, Orifice is a pretty good deal. His biggest drawback, by far, is the short amount of time he remains with you. In all likelihood, he will leave your party well before you get to the point where having him would be useful.

Despite this, Orifice does have some limited use when hired for short jobs as a meat shield. For example, bringing Orifice along after clearing out the Sewers will make your fight against the Rat Shaman very easy. Orifice will likely be killed during the fight, but he will take the attention off of Jake and even inflict some decent damage before he dies. The same strategy would work for clearing out the back room of the Rust Stilettos hideout. You might be able to take him along for other short jobs like this, but his use is quite limited.
