Shadowrun Wiki

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


Steelflight is probably the best Shadowrunner available in the game. Though quite expensive, Steelflight has the highest computer skill level, excellent offense, and terrific defense. He is well equipped to not only crack into the Matrix, but also to survive long enough to make it to the computer consoles (and even take out most enemies along the way). Of all Shadowrunners, Steelflight sports the highest attack power, defense, and HP, and the second highest firing speed. Steelflight also stays around for a very long time, so, with the proper healing, it is possible to keep him with you for the nearly the remainder of the game once hired.

Steelflight is actually far more useful as a mercenary than he is as a decker. Jake can accomplish nearly the same level of performance in the Matrix, without the added challenge of keeping a Shadowrunner alive. Steelflight is pretty useless in both the Drake Tower and Aneki Building, as he won't survive the firefight without draining a considerable amount of MP from Jake. Even if you do manage to keep him alive, there are still problems when using him as a hacker. The Matrix sections in the Drake building are easy enough to do alone, and the ones in the Aneki building are so hard that Steelflight will likely be killed or require several trips to complete the same section. The stage where Steelflight would be useful is probably the Drake Volcano, especially if you want to exploit the Gold Naga experience trick. Steelflight is probably the best overall runner, so be sure to target him if you have the nuyen.
