Objective 5 - Open HID Lock


Objective 5

The HID lock is located in Santa's Workshop.

Objective 5


There are two terminal challenges for this objective:

  1. "33.6kbps" offered by Fitzy Shortstack (located in the Kitchen).
  2. "Speaker UNPrep" offered by Bushy Evergreen (located in the Talks Level).

Solving these terminal challenges provides additional hints for this objective. To view the hints or the walk-through for these terminal challenges, use the menu on the left.

To start this objective you need to go to the workshop. You need to go to the wrapping room that is located above the workshop. In the wrapping room, you will find the item Proxmark3 on the floor.

Objective 5

Based on the hints from the terminal challenges, you need to use the Proxmark3 to read the hid code from a specific character and simulate it at the HID Lock to unlock it. You can interact with the Proxmark3 from the items menu.

Explore the castle and each time you're standing near a character, type lf hid read in the Proxmark3 console.

Here are the hids for some of the characters in the castle:

As you walk through the unlocked door, you see a set of eyes at the end of the hallway.

Clicking on the eyes transports you into Santa's body in the entryway.
