Treasure Hunt is a optional objective in Prey (2017).
Abigail Foy left some kind of treasure hunt for the crew members involved in her tabletop gaming group. If I can find the maps she gave them, it sounds like there could be something worthwhile on the workstation in her quarters.
- Find Emma Beatty's map.
- Find Danielle Sho's map.
- Find Zachary West's map.
- Find Elias Black's map.
- Investigate Rosalyn's map.
- Investigate Hordinbaffle's map.
- Investigate Stabfellow's map.
- Investigate Melindra's map.
Zachary "Hordinbaffle Flagdasterous" West
Zachary’s treasure map is likely the first one you’ll find. It’s on his body right outside the door to Deep Storage in the Arboretum. You loot his corpse at the end of Detour. Hordinbaffle Flagdasterous’ map is an area in the back left corner of the Water Treatment Facility in Life Support. The "3" you are looking for is painted on the wall below the Monitoring Station. You’ll be right nearby during Reboot.
Elias "Captain Stabfellow" Black
Elias seems to be the only player who came prepared to game night. His treasure map is on the table where the Fatal Fortress session was being played in the Recreation Center in the Crew Quarters. You probably picked up one of Danielle’s voice samples at this same table during Gathering Echoes. Captain Stabfellow’s map leads to a nearby area — the Recycler room over to the left of the Yellow Tulip. There is a very faded "6" on the wall to the left of the Recycler. You’ll be near here during Gathering Echoes and this objective.
Emma "Rosalyn Swift" Beatty
You’ll pick up Emma’s treasure map from her body (dead or alive) — she’s one of the mind-controlled humans in the Fitness Center just before you get to the pool. You’ll be here during Gathering Echoes or when you pick up the Danielle Sho optional objective. Rosalyn Swift’s map will lead you to Cargo Bay B. Look for the "5" painted on the wall in the back left of the GUTS Loading Bay. This cargo bay is the primary location for Shipping and Receiving.
Danielle "Melindra Shadowcorner" Sho
Danielle’s treasure map is on her computer in Deep Storage — you’ll be here during Restore From Backup and Ghosting Dahl. Download the map from the Files tab. Melindra Shadowcorner’s map takes you to the Fuel Storage area near the Shuttle Bay. You can get here through G.U.T.S.. There is a "1" painted on the wall just to the right, at the top of the grav lift. This is a weird area — not much of the game leading up to this point has brought you here. You’ll be relatively close during Shipping and Receiving, but you’ll explore the rest of GUTS earlier during Detour.
Enter the Code
When you’ve found all four numbers — 1, 3, 5 and 6 — head back to Abby’s computer in her cabin in Crew Quarters. You just have to enter the digits into the utility tab. Although there don’t seem to be in a discernible order for the code, 1365 or 3156 usually works. If they don't work, start through this list of the 24 combinations until one works: 1356, 1365, 1536, 1563, 1635, 1653, 3156, 3165, 3516, 3561, 3615, 3651, 5136, 5163, 5316, 5361, 5613, 5631, 6135, 6153, 6315, 6351, 6513, or 6531. When you get it right, you’ll download the fabrication plan for either the Game Master’s Ire v1.x or the Adventurer’s Toolkit v1.x suit chipset and complete the objective.
This special Suit Chipset will give you multiple bonuses - including:
- Increased Recycler Yield
- Increased Wrench crit hit chance
- Longer lasting flashlight
- Increased movement speed when crouched
If you enter your randomized combination of the digits 1 3 5 6 before completing all the quest objectives, you will receive a punishment Suit Chipset - Game Master's Ire v1.x Fabrication Plan. This chipset has very different attributes to punish those who thought to cheat with the following "bonuses." If you get the punishment chipset for cheating you will NEVER be able to get the reward chipset:
- Reduced Recycler Yield
- Reduced Flashlight battery capacity
- Reduced movement speed when crouched
- If you kill Emma before you gain the quest the note will not spawn. However, if you look at a certain email on the terminal in the treadmill room, the quest can still be triggered. (Tested)
- There is one fabricator nearby for creating the chip. It is in the kitchen, where you first met the imposter cook during The Cook’s Request.
