After the previous mission, we’ll be kicked out of the Animus for another dose of ‘real world’ action. Follow the woman over to the elevator and hit the fl. 15 –CCO button to ride it up to the top level. Upon exiting the elevator, the woman will get called into the office by herself, leaving us alone to twiddle our thumbs. Fortunately that voice over the radio has some plans for us.

To the right of the reception desk is an open doorway. Go through this and follow the hallway to the end. Go down the stairs and approach the door. You’ll now be granted Level 2 security clearance. When you are able, go inside and then open the Level 2 door just to the right.

You can now access more computers to hack with Level 2 clearance.

Approach the security console to try out a hacking mini game. This mini-game features a number at the top of the page and three sets of four numbers at the bottom of the screen. We essentially need to select numbers from each of the four groups at the bottom, so that when multiplied together in order, they equal the number at the top of the page.

To solve this puzzle use the following steps:

  • Set the first group of numbers to ‘5’.
  • Set the second group of numbers to ‘2’.
  • Set the third group of numbers to ‘7’.

Any combination of the number will do. If you look at the wave pattern as you go and try to match up with the closest pattern, you can work out the combination without resorting to maths.

This will complete the security measure. Now all we need to do is sit back and watch the surveillance footage for a few moments. Afterwards exit the security camera room.

Now follow the hallway all the way to the end until you reach an open window. Wait here for a few moments and a window washing platform will park itself here. Hop aboard and ride it up to the platform above. Exit to the left and enter Olivier’s office. Approach his computer and interact with it for another hacking mini-game

This hacking sequence involves piloting a little blue dot across the moving lines to the right to reach the far side. The blue dot can only move between grey or white lines as it traverses the grid. Touching red lines will destroy the dot and you will have to begin again. There are no real hints or tips to accompany this one, just be patient and try not to rush. Eventually you’ll be able to get it across to complete the hack.

These hacks can get maddening. Try and stay patient. Even the hardest ones can be done eventually.

After the hack, wait for the receptionist to leave her post and then exit the office. Return to the elevator and ride it down to the ground floor. Approach the waypoint marker for a scene. When you are done here, return to your work station and get back to work in the Animus.
