Control Main Story Walkthrough

In this guide, you will find the complete walkthrough of the main story of Remedy’s Control, including the location of all collectibles, tactics on dealing with common enemies and bosses, and puzzles
Index

Control tells the story of Jesse Faden who arrived at the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC) to find her brother Dylan. In order to increase immersion into the story of the game, developers added many collectibles which are divided into four categories – ‘‘Case Files’’, ‘’Correspondence’’ (later referred to as documents), ‘’Multimedia’’ (later referred to as audio and video records) and ‘’Research & Records’’ (later referred to as notes). Each file has its own name and contains some important and interesting information. In our walkthrough, we’ll briefly indicate the location of such files without mentioning their specific names.

Control Main Story Walkthrough-1

Following the introductory video, go through the checkpoint on the right and pick up the first document. Climb the stairs and enter the room on the left where you’ll find a note on the file cabinet. Follow the corridor along the offices. In one of the offices on the left, you’ll find a document on the table. Another one could be found in the neighboring office, on the coffee table. Go ahead and talk to the janitor.

Control Main Story Walkthrough-2

Welcome to the Oldest House

Go back to the hall and use the elevator on the left. Upon arrival, find a document in the office on the left. Pay attention to the door on the right side. To access the room, you’ll need a key card. There’s a number at the top – ‘’01’’. Thus, you’ll need the key card level 1. Later, you’ll find many such doors. Only a small number of them opens as you go along the storyline, while you’ll have to return to the remaining doors once you have found the key card. Typically, you’ll find a collectible item and a container with some upgrade or resource behind these doors. Go forward and see the door to the director’s office. Do not hurry. Instead, come to the wall on the left to pick up a document from the stand.

Control Main Story Walkthrough-3

Enter the director’s office and pick up the gun. This is the Service Weapon – your first Object of Power. When you find such objects, you’ll get some superpowers. In this case, you have found a pistol that charges over time (it does not need ammo). Complete a simple weapon tutorial. Use the V key to attack in close combat.

Tip. The gun reloads automatically when you do not use it. At the same time, if you run out of ammo, you’ll have to wait until the full recharge is completed — you will be vulnerable all this time. Thus, we do not recommend spending all your ammo – stop shooting when you still have 1-2 bullets.

Control Main Story Walkthrough-4

Go out of the director’s office and move forward until opponents attack you. They are called Hiss Guards. Examine a huge office hall. In the office on the right side, you’ll find a document. Move further along the corridor and find a similar office with a tape recorder. Turn it on to listen to an audio record. Also, find another part of the big office with many desks. At the very end, on the stand on the left, you’ll find a document. Open the door of the shelter to find a container with a modification for the weapon and a document. Later, we’ll only indicate the location of the containers without revealing their contents.

Control Main Story Walkthrough-5

Get out and go through the door on the right. You’ll get into Central Executive. In the office on the right side, you’ll find a document and a note. Move forward and jump over the railing. Defeat all opponents. In addition to ordinary guards, you’ll face the Hiss Ranger. He has much more health so kill ordinary opponents and collect items to increase your health.

Control Main Story Walkthrough-6

Hide behind a cover and do not forget about the possibility to deal a blow in close combat (V key). After the victory, interact with the control point in the center of the room to clear the room of extra blocks. That’s your first fast travel point!

Interact with the intercom and then talk about everything with Pope. You can restart the conversation to ask new questions. Interact with the Bureau employee who is located not far from the control point, but you won’t be able to clear his mind. Talk to Pope again to complete the task and start a new quest. There’s a note and a container in the shelter where Pope was with other Bureau employees.

Continue moving upstairs, turn to the right and walk into the office on the left where you’ll find a container and a document. Finally, there’s another container in the last room.

Enemies are located in the hall on the left side. Go there and descend. Kill all opponents. Beware of Hiss Barrier. If you come close to it, the barrier will explode and deal damage to you. The barrier will disappear as soon as you kill the guards.

There’s a document in the cafeteria lavatory. Come to the shelter door and find a case file on the bench on the right side. Having opened the shelter door, you’ll find an anomaly inside.

Go down, run to the Object of Power and interact with it. Take the telekinesis tutorial. To grab an item, hold E. To drop it, release this key.

Defeat the opponents that appear in the room. Telekinesis is the best weapon against enemies with shields. Throw any object and then finish off the enemy. Get out of here and kill the Ranger. Now you are free to move on. Go forward and look into the room on the right side. Remove the boxes to find a container. Another container can be found in the office on the left side.

Hiss-corrupted Tommasi

This enemy will use only one weapon – telekinesis. He will periodically stop when flying across the hall. Shards will appear on both the left and the right side of him. Hide behind any shelters to avoid getting hurt by them. Use the Service Weapon to shoot at him. Do not try to throw objects at him as he will easily dodge your missiles. Instead, use telekinesis to kill other opponents. Ultimately, Tommasi will escape.
