This spoiler-free guide will teach you the exact locations and number combinations for every safe in Stray. You need to open all four of them to unlock all in-game collectibles.
Safe #1 Location: Stray Chapter 3 (The Flat Door)
In Chapter 3, you will stumble upon a a dark hallway with a locked door at the end. The drone that accompanies you will lead you to a keypad, but you need a code to open it. Go back the way you came and find an opening before the locked door. Head inside and you will see nothing but pitch-black darkness. Activate your drone’s flashlight to reveal a whiteboard on the left side of the room. You will see red text covered by some bottles on a shelf.
Safe # 1 Door Passcode: 3748
Return to the safe and enter the numbers you saw on that whiteboard.
Safe #2 Location: Stray Chapter 4 (Slums Part 1)
If you’re in the Slums area, face towards the Guardian and take the left path towards a guitar player named Morusque. Keep walking down this path, take a left turn, and then another left turn. Follow this road correctly and you will find the safe hidden on top of a garbage pile. There will also be a note that can only be deciphered by Elliot the Programmer.
Elliot will tell you to head over towards the Dufer Bar. Find a way inside this building and knock down the portrait of a beach located above a neon sign. This will reveal the four-digit code for the safe back in the trash pile you found earlier.
Safe #2 Door Passcode: 1283
Enter the correct combination to open the safe and unlock Sheet Music 8/8.
Safe #3 Location: Stray Chapter 6 (The Slums Part 2)
You will return to the Slums right after completing the game’s rooftop portion. Go inside Seamus’ house and you will see several picture frames on the walls. Jump on the counter to knock down every picture frame and reveal all hidden clues.
Knocking down the first frame will give you the hint Time Will Tell, while the fourth frame reveals the secret keypad for the room’s hidden door. There are four clocks located above Seamus’ couch. The hour hand of each clock represent the digits for the safe passcode.
Safe #3 Door Passcode: 2511
Safe #4 Location: Stray Chapter 10 (Midtown)
As soon as you enter Midtown in Chapter 10 of the game, go inside the second shop to your right. There is a safe hidden on the shelves in the room’s top left corner. The safe code can be found in this very same room. A translation message will appear that says 2458:edoC. Obviously, this reads Code:8542 backwards.
Safe #4 Door Passcode: 8542
Enter these four digits in the proper order to earn the Cat Badge.
