How to open a locked safe in the slums in Stray

Stray has all sorts of hidden side quests to find and complete. These can be any tasks, collectibles or, as in this case, safes. The first center you will enter is the Slums. In fact, you are likely to spend more time in the Slums than anywhere else.

Because of its size, it’s easy to miss some things. One thing that might confuse people is the mysterious safe that appears to be locked with some sort of binary code. The solution to this puzzle is simple if you know what to do, but if you don’t, you can just give up. This is where we come to the rescue.

Where to find a locked safe

The safe in question can be found by going to the left into the “Slums” central area. You can tell that you are in this central zone because you will see a Guardian who greeted you at the entrance. Going to the left, you will come across a robot that wants to learn music, but if you go past him, you will find a safe.

On the safe is a note written entirely in binary code. You might think that deciphering the code by hand is the solution to the problem, or you might even think that the numbers written on the walls around the safe are the answer. Both of these are incorrect.

How to decrypt binary code

To decipher the code, it is enough to return to the central zone and read the nearest direction indicator. One of these characters is written in binary. Moreover, if you show the code to any robot, it will tell you that you need to find the “eccentric”.

The weirdo’s name is Elliott and can be found by following these binary signs. You will know when you find the right place because its door is also covered in binary characters. Scratch the door, go upstairs and show him the code. He will tell you that it says “Duffer Bar”.

Find the Duffer Bar

The Duffer Bar is right around the corner from Elliot, but what the heck, you’ve probably passed it a few times while exploring The Slums. It is very well oriented thanks to the neon signs outside.

If you can’t remember where it is, follow these directions from Elliott’s front door:

  • Turn left at the door and go down the alley
  • Walk down the alley to the right and the bar will be right in front of you

Once you’re at the bar, jump on the bar and slap the “Duffer Bar” sign with your cat. She will fall down and reveal the code to the safe.

Return to the safe

Once you know the code, write it down on a piece of paper or something else and return to the safe. Enter the code and enjoy your reward – the music sheet. You deserve it.
