After you’ve located the shop with the worker’s jacket and hat in it, you will need to distract the grumpy robot who works as the shopkeeper.

You don’t need to go explore Midtown cluelessly. We have curated a simple step-by-step guide on how to find and use the cassette tape in Stray.

Step 1: Talk To Simon

Talk to Simon

After exiting the shop you will need to find an apartment complex that has three robots chilling around in its central courtyard (one of them will be holding a cassette player). Simon is the one who is wearing a hoodie and sitting in front of a tree.

He will be willing to give you the cassette tape but will ask you to destroy three security cameras within the apartment complex so that they can continue to have fun without being bothered by the security. This will be the first step you need to perform to obtain the cassette tape in Stray.

Step 2: Destroy The First Security Camera

Right after talking to Simon overtake him and head upstairs to the apartment complex. Once you’re on the first floor wrap around and head towards where the central courtyard was. Here you can jump on one of the ledges and you’ll be able to see the first security camera right at the edge of a board sign. 

Simply jump on it until you hear a breaking sound and then you can hop right off as the security camera falls off.

Step 3: Destroy The Second Security Camera

The second security camera you need to destroy to collect the cassette tape is on the opposite side of Simon. Here you will notice a door with a yellow light next to it. All you need to do is get those paws into some parkour action. Jump on the box next to the door, then make another jump and land on the shelf right next to the security camera. 

After hopping on the security camera get comfortable until you hear the breaking sound again and quickly make your way back to the shelf.

Step 4: Destroy The Third Security Camera

The third and final security camera is on the opposite ledge of the first security camera. However, this one is attached to the ledge instead, unlike the other one which was attached to a board sign. You can easily spot the camera as one of the robots is standing in front of it waving its arms.

Climb the ledge and then make a quick jump onto the security camera until it breaks and just like that the Stray cassette tape is almost yours!

Step 5: Aquire The Cassette Tape From Simon
