Stumble upon the Updaam cave safe in Deathloop?
Aside from the game’s main plot, Deathloop features a lot of gears, side stories, and locations that you can discover while traversing the island of Blackreef. You would also encounter a handful of puzzles in the game.
One of the most challenging puzzles to solve in Deathloop is the safe in Updaam cave.
If you plan to unlock the Updaam cave safe, you’ll have to do a fair amount of detective work. You’ll find this save right under the Dorsey Square in Updaam.
Nonetheless, all work done are worth it once you find the 5,000 Residuum locked inside the safe. The best part, the Residuum also resets with the time loop, and you can collect it at the start of every loop.
Today, we will show you how to open the Updaam cave safe in Deathloop.
Let’s jump right in!
Unlocking the Updaam Cave Safe in Deathloop
Inside the Updaam cave, you’ll find a map with a triangle drawn into it. You’ll also find triangles carved into the walls. For this puzzle, you’ll need to find three codes to open the safe. You can get them by matching the triangle points with overworld positions, finding the codes in each location, and getting the correct sequence for the safe’s code.
Sadly, you cannot open the safe in Updaam cave without solving the puzzle. Every code for the safe would be different for every player, so you cannot simply enter the codes shown in this guide.
Each code you find corresponds to the triangles found on the wall of the cave.
Locating the Numbers
The first one is drawn on the map, but you still need to line up the circles to determine the position of the remaining triangles. While the numbers are different for every player, the locations of the numbers are constant.
Get some paper or anything to write down the numbers you’ll see and their locations.
- 1st Number: outside Colt’s Apartment near the Final Nights of Bad Luck Mary plaque
- 2nd Number: outside of a small tunnel near Moxie
- 3rd Number: on the walls of the alley near the tunnels
- 4th Number: partially hidden on a wall at the Library’s entrance
- 5th Number: located outside Charlie’s mansion (you can view it using a gun scope)
- 6th Number: near the door to the left of Otto’s workshop.
Once you’ve found the numbers, head back to the cave to unlock the safe.
The safe codes correspond to the three triangles carved into the wall. You need to enter the codes with the numbers that match the no dash vertex, one dash, then two dashes. This will be the sequence for all the triangles in the cave.
However, remember that the final triangle won’t have dashes, so you’ll have to guess the combination.
