Prey: Complete Guide to Safe Codes and Door Keycodes
Shooter-stealth -RPG mashup Prey is here to test your prowess in solving puzzles and taking down horrifying alien enemies in space (read our full review here). You are pretty much guaranteed to miss significant portions of the game world going through blind the first time, but don't worry: we've got you covered with guides on every aspect of exploring Talos 1!
We already covered how to find the secret Stun Gun in the Neurmod Division, and now its time for a full breakdown of the safe codes and door lock keycodes for all those players who can't be bothered to do the sleuthing necessary to discover these passwords themselves!
Some safe and door keycodes are always the same, while others are randomized between each playthrough of the main story. Obviously, we can't list the specific answers for these passwords, since there are too many of them to guess through.
However, for these changing codes, rather than including a number that might not work in your playthrough, instead, we've listed specifically where you can locate the code on your own by reading notes, checking emails on computer terminals, or listening to audio logs left on TranScribes throughout Talos 1.
