Admittedly, knowing how to get the tutorial door code in Payday 3 isn’t straightforward. Here are the exact steps:

  • After killing the guard in the room, you’ll be advised to hide his body. Do so in the nearby bathroom. 
  • After putting the body down, look on the right side of the room to find a large, white vent cover. Remove that and crawl through. Mantle the boxes inside and remove another grate. 
  • Look through the opening to find the tutorial door code on the left wall, by a fold-out table. My tutorial door code was 3735, though yours could be different. 

Go back to the keypad for the locked door, and your light will illuminate the fingerprints on the buttons. That doesn’t matter for this solution: you already have the tutorial door code. However, the ones you find in the heists themselves won’t be so easy. Enter the numbers and continue through the level.

A good example of having to deduce what number combos are correct comes in Payday 3‘s first mission, No Rest For the Wicked. If you use stealth to reach the vault, you’ll eventually be required to enter a string of numbers from a set of three. 

That covers how to get the tutorial door code in Payday 3. For more tips and tricks, head over to our PD3 guides hub.
