To find the Deathloop cassette puzzle answer you'll need to do some snooping around Fia's bunker to locate various pictograms, once you'd discovered Fia and Charlie's secret meeting place by following a photo clue. When you reach the point in Deathloop where this puzzle becomes available you'll have some work to do, as it's not easy to figure out how to use the strange machinery to open the locked door ahead. This computer crossed with a combination lock can only be solved by pushing four specific cassettes into their relevant slots, in the correct order, and with many different possibilities you need to know what you're doing. This means finding the right pictures and knowing how to interpret them, so get ready and we'll show you how to solve the Deathloop cassette puzzle.

If you haven't discovered it already while exploring, you'll find the cassette puzzle when figuring out where to search the Fristad Shore in Deathloop for Charlie and Fia's secret meeting place. When you've found the door in the photo - head past Fia's bunker to the shore and then turn left to follow the sea around until you see the door with the 09 next to it - you'll find this crazy looking machine inside.

On the machine you'll find book called 'Order of Operations' that will give you the combination to the safe in the Yerhva, the Queen of Riddles machine in Karl's Bay. Head there and inside the safe you'll find a note, which is what you need to actually solve the cassette puzzle. While you're there, you can also use the Deathloop Queen of Riddles Yerhva answers, if you haven't done so already.

The note, in a round about, way tells you where to find four pictograms inside Fia's bunker that will give you the entry in the Deathloop codes to open the Deathloop cassette puzzle. The clues are these:

  1. Look first to my favorite, he who lurks beneath the wheeled behemoth. 
  2. Follow fast my cleverest; she enlivens the lockers.
  3. Appreciate my lovely, as she lubricates the shaft.
  4. Dream finally of the babe that marks my stage exit.

This is a wafty way of saying the pictogram locations are in the following places inside Fia's bunker: 

  1. Under the big truck in the bunker entrance. 
  2. In the locker room on the second floor of the reactor room. 
  3. Inside the lift shaft.
  4. By the ground floor exit from the reactor room, where the patterned path on the floor leads to the bunker exit. 

When you've found all the images you should find your Visionary leads looks like below, and you'll be ready to head to Fristad Rock.

Once you have all four pictograms you'll be able to solve the Deathloop pictogram puzzle through the careful process of pressing all the buttons and checking where the images are marked on the blueprints on the console. Fortunately you'll only have to do this once as after you get the right combination the first time the numbers will appear over the console every time you come back. When you've got all of the numbers the Pumping Station door will open, and you'll be able to scout out where Charlies and Fia meet up for a little 'not allowed on the island' fun.
