How to find missing Science Weapons?: In-game the Science Weapons will appear simply as the weapon itself or in a green Safe containers that you can pick up to collect when you stand next to it. It can be confirmed as being Science Weapons simply by walking up to it, as the on-screen text will then tell you can press the action button/key to pick it up / open it and then you’ll gain the Science Weapon.

It also appears as part of quests. For example, the Prismatic Hammer can be found as part of the “Weapons From the Void” Quest that tells you to “Acquire the Science Weapon on Groundbreaker”.

Does the game save each Science Weapons you collect?: Yes, the game will automatically save the Science Weapons you just collected if you picked up the Science Weapon, so you don’t have to play to the end of the mission. After picking up each collectible you can safely quit the mission without losing collectibles progress.
