We’ll now take a brief detour back to the real world. Once you are back in control of your minion, follow the objective marker on your tablet and enter the nearby office to talk with the serious looking gentleman inside. After the discussion, make your way to the elevator.
Hit the button for ‘fl.1 – lobby’ and ride it down. Cross the bridge here and head over to the door on the left – as per the ongoing dialogue, we’ll now have level 1 security access. This will allow us to enter the door. Interact with the computer inside.
Another hacking puzzle! Remember the screen will display a sphere broken into multiple segments. These are surrounded by rings with several lasers aimed at the core. Core segments that are active are highlighted in blue, whilst inactive ones are red. To solve the puzzle, we need to activate all the core segments by rotating the rings so that each laser is pointing to a different segment on the sphere.
This core has four segments. To solve this puzzle, follow these simple steps:
- Move the innermost ring’s laser to point at the second segment from the bottom
- Move the outermost ring’s laser to point at the second segment from the top.
- Move the second largest ring’s laser to point at the top segment.
This will unlock the core and a scene will play. After you are done, exit the computer. Note that as we now have security level 1 access, we can enter additional doors and areas to repair more computers – remember there is an achievement/trophy – ‘Repairman’ for repairing all 20 of them.
Anyway, explore a little if you like and when you are ready to go, return to your work station and get back to work in the Animus.
