Alan Wake 2 has a lot of puzzles that need to be solved if you want to progress through the campaign. One of these takes place in an abandoned theme park. Our guide discusses how to complete the Coffee World Gift Shop puzzle involving a vague clue mentioning a Tracker, Lookout, and Cleaner in Alan Wake 2 so you can obtain the key to Saga’s trailer.
How to solve the Coffee World Gift Shop puzzle in Alan Wake 2
The Alan Wake 2 Coffee World Gift Shop puzzle is located in the central portion of the town of Watery. You’ll visit this area during Saga Anderson’s Return 3 – Local Girl chapter. Sadly, things aren’t quite straightforward, since you have to trek through the woods before you reach the theme park. Moreover, you also need to acquire the Screwdriver just to unlock the door.
Assuming you already have the necessary item, it’s time for a little brain teaser. Check the safe under the cash register and read the note. It mentions the following:
Calm down. This one’s easy. Tracker, Lookout, Cleaner. See? Not rocket science! — Ilmo
Next, switch to Saga’s Mind Place and use the profiling action on the Koskelas. You should learn a bit more regarding the safe.
From there, check the board that has the park’s employees (seen in the image below). You’ll find that each employee’s job position is also listed. In fact, the words in the clue pertain to closely related job titles. Moreover, As you may have noticed, the employee photos are also arranged neatly, similar to a nine-digit keypad. With these in mind, we’ve got the following:
- Tracker = Lost & Found = 1
- Lookout = Security = 4
- Cleaner = Janitor = 6
The solution for the Coffee World Gift Shop puzzle in Alan Wake 2 is 1-4-6. Simply interact with the safe and click on the keypad to input the password. This rewards you with the key to Saga’s trailer, allowing you to continue with the main objective in this chapter.
Before you head to the trailer, though, don’t forget to pick up the Manuscript Page, “Coffee World Attacked,” that’s on the counter. Likewise, be on the lookout for various collectibles in Watery, such as Alex Casey Lunchboxes, Cult Stashes, and Nursery Rhymes/Dolls.
From Bright Falls to the Dark Place, danger lurks in every corner in Alan Wake 2. Don’t worry because we’ve got everything covered in our guides hub.
