To unlock a Locked Container, Max must be carrying the Safe Cracking Kit .
There are two types of locked containers, and they are quite different from one another. One type, the Floor Safe, is easily to most lucrative Container in the game.
Types of Locked ContainersEdit
The game has exactly 2 different types of Locked Containers:
- Main article: Wall Safe
The only difference between it and other containers is the fact that it is locked. If there's a plethora of other containers in the same Hideout, there's no prerogative to go for the Wall Safes or to carry a Safe Cracking Kit at all, unless expecting a Floor Safe!
- Main article: Floor Safe
The Floor Safe is easily the most valueable kind of Container you can find, and is significantly different from all other Containers.
A Floor Safe may contain a completely different array of information from what is normally acquired from other Containers. It can provide Max with additional Combat Gear, reveal the entire floor plan of the current Hideout, and better yet - provide sensitive documents of exceptional value to the investigation.
Opening a Locked ContainerEdit
Again, the thing that sets these Locked Containers apart from the other Containers is that they are, well, Locked.
The process itself is rather simple: Walk up to the Locked Container, and open it as you would any other Container, by pressing the "F2" key. The only difference is that this won't work if Max is not carrying a Safe Cracking Kit at the time.
Strangely, closing a Locked Container works the same way - walking up to it and pressing "F2" - but it cannot be closed unless you have a Safe Cracking Kit.
This has a special significance when you kill an enemy guard while he is inspecting a Locked Container. If this happens, and you do not have a Safe Cracking Kit on you at the time, there is no way to close that Container. This is important because any other enemy guard who comes across this permanently-open container will raise the alarm immediately.
So, for caution, if you're not carrying a Safe Cracking Kit, avoid killing guards while they are inspecting Locked Containers...
