Steal the Prototype Schematics

There are two methods of obtaining the Prototype Schematics.

  • Head down the stairs to the office below and unlock the doors to the Prototype Schematics room.
  • A vent in the reception room leads to the Prototype Schematics room. You need to unlock the vent and steal the schematics from a chest for this.

Stealing the Prototype Schematics From the Office

Head down to the office. You will find a door opposite to Gladys Coffin. You need to use a Digipick on the door to unlock it and get access to the inside, where you will find the chest with the Prototype Schematics. The biggest challenge here is to avoid the guards and Gladys, as they are constantly patrolling. We would suggest that you wait until midnight to have them shift away.

You will also need a Digipick for the Novice lock on the chest inside. If you do not have a Digipick, you can find one inside a storage room at the back of the office.

Stealing the Prototype Schematics Through the Vent

This method of stealing the schematics is more straightforward as you will only encounter a single security guard. Still, you must have level 2 Security to unlock the Expert lock on the vent.
