Unlock Every Door in Prey With These Keycards & Keycodes

Prey 2 Logo

Locked doors getting you down in Prey [2017]? They’re a constant nuisance while trying to explore the ravaged Talos 1 station, so we’re going to provide a running list of all the codes and keys we find throughout the story.

There are two types of door / safe locks — keycards, and keycodes. Keycards have to be collected, then used on the specific locked door. Thankfully, keycodes don’t need to be found. If you know the code, you can input and unlock doors or safes at any time.

Knowing where to get the codes and keys you need makes life just a tiny bit easier. Check out the tally below, and check back soon as we add new entries to the big list.
