Deathloop's gas room puzzle is stumping players aplenty, leading to in-game deaths by the thousands. Although death isn't as permanent a punishment in Deathloop as it might be in other games, it's still frustrating to find yourself trapped and gassed, perhaps even repeatedly. Luckily, the solution to the puzzle — which allows you to escape with your life — isn't so complicated. But it does require quick thinking. Here's how to escape the gas room.

Deathloop Gas Room: How to Complete the Puzzle

Start the puzzle by facing the man behind the glass — your antagonist — and turn to your left. You should see a staircase. Climb it and look for a metal box with an antenna above it. Hack the antenna to open the Gas Drainage Protocols, where you'll find instructions on how to vent the gas and escape your glass prison.

Beside the metal box you should see a locked door opposite a whiteboard. Make a note of the three numbers on the whiteboard — they change every time you go through the puzzle — and headback to the box. Underneath you'll find some breakable slats hiding a secret entrance. Slide through and find the levers labeled with the numbers from the white board. Pull the levers that correspond to the numbers from the whiteboard.

Return to the metal box and press the red button inside to complete the puzzle and earn your freedom via the boathouse door.
