Chapter 3: Gamma Quarter emergency power code

In Chapter 3, you must get into Ada’s room. To get there, you’ll need a spare key, which is located in the Gamma Quarter. However, the way is blocked and to get there you must turn off the generator in the service room. The code for the generator is ‘’33212’’. The code could be found on the board with a drawing of Tesla.

Chapter 4: Locked door access code

Once you have made your way through the laboratory with a lightning coil, you will get to the room with lots of corpses. On the right side, you will find a locked door. The access code is in the note that you can find on a dead body in the toilet. The code specified is “32122”.

Chapter 9: Elevator control panel

In Chapter 9, after being chased by an anomaly, you get to the locked door. Come to the control panel room on the right and pull the levers down so the panels lit green. We did it this way: (from left to right) 1, 2, 4, 1.

Chapter 10: Starboard power circuit puzzle

In chapter 10, Tesla will ask you to reset panels so they lit red. Go left and when you reach the panels, pull levers in order 2,4,1 from your left.

Chapter 10: Turning off the electric tower

There are four levers you will need to pull in this puzzle. First, make your way to the left of the tower and pull the first lever. Then go right to another control panel to the right of the tower. You will need to pull both levers, starting from the left. Once you have pulled all three levers, go back to the fourth lever (the right of the two) and pull it. The path is clear now.
