  • Walk up to the machine, and players can easily interact with it. 

How To Solve The Calibration Puzzle 

Now, whenever players go to the puzzle, the machine tells them there is insufficient power and that calibration needs to be carried out. The puzzle itself is quite tough. Therefore, this is how players can solve it. 

T Nodes

  • There are essentially nodes that are present on the machine. These T nodes allow players to position them so the machine can let power travel through the power lines on both ends
  • As players can see, the dotted lines indicate no power flowing; therefore, players need to position the nodes so that the dotted lines become green lines indicating power is flowing properly.

  • The number on the corner indicates the total nodes that the player has activated. 

Solving Calibration Puzzle 

Now that players know how the calibration puzzles work let’s see how this can be solved. 

First Line

  • From the first green power line, the power starts to flow from the very top, and payers need to turn the T node so that it is facing right, and the power flows through the first right line. 
  • From here, move on to the second line, and follow these 4 symbols

The symbol on the top should be facing right, while the T on the left should be facing right too. The T on the bottom should be facing down, and the symbol on the right side of the line should be facing left. That diverges the power to the bottom left of the node as well.

Third Line

  • From here, the power in the third line should be as follows.
  • The top T should be facing down to allow power to flow to the final node.
  • The T on the left should be facing the left to connect to the second line.
  • T on the right should be facing the left, and the symbol on the bottom should be connecting the second and third power lines. 
Completed Puzzle

  • This completes the puzzle, and the system is restored with the Auxiliary security being deactivated. After that, the level 1 keycard can be obtained.

After you’ve grabbed the Biosensor scope, players should be able to dig into their inventory and see the Biosensor being placed there. The Sensor is a special scope that can highlight biological entities and creatures and can even be mounted onto rifles and other weapons. 

  • Mount it onto one of your weapons from your inventory, and exit the inventory. 

Overwrite Terminal

From there, players need to overwrite the terminal, and if you turn right around, there should be a terminal you can interact with. For this, players are not able to overwrite it until they access a wrench, as can be explained by the character. 

Aiming At Glass Tube

  • Turn right around, and look outside the window where you are standing. 
  • From here, players want to take hold of their weapon and aim at the purple tube that is present on the left and shoot at it. 
Glass Tube Shattering

  • If you take a look at the creature inside the cell, the wrench is gutted inside the creature. Therefore, players need to annihilate the creature before they can get the wrench. 
  • After you shoot at the tube, the glass shatters, and the creature falls to the ground before it stands up and starts running toward you.

Inside the creature, there are two places where players need to aim and shoot at. One of the places is present towards the left thigh, located towards the bottom end of the wrench

  • Aim and shoot at it, and it ends up causing the opponent to explode and fall to its death. 
  • From here, players can grab the wrench that falls out of the creature.
