Stray Safe Mysterious Password Binary Code Translator Guide

The Stray Safe Code is one of the first real challenges you will find in the game. You will eventually find a safe while exploring the slums, and it requires a mysterious password to open, you will have to find someone who knows how to unlock it in order to get your hands on what’s inside.

As such, here’s a look at how you can open the safe in the slums while playing as a cat.

Find the misplaced safe

As a side quest, you help the struggling musician codfish by collecting eight individual scores. The 8th score can be collected by cracking the safe code, which requires the player to locate the digicode. Now locate it, do the following:

You can find the safe in the alley to the left of Morusque, the robot guitarist who is in possession of sheet music. When you enter The Slums, the first robot you will see will be Guardian; Morusque will be down the stairs to his left.

However, you will have to dig deeper to find out the exact password. If you take the paper with the code for Elliotit will tell you where the password is hidden.

Head to Elliot Programming

You can find Elliot if you walk around the safe and up the stairs to your right. Now turn right and go down the stairs, and straight to the red neon sign.

Instead of entering through this door, continue around the corner to the left, then take the first right and stop at the door on the right. It has a reddish color and a complicated diagram on it. Scratch the door to enter.

Take the stairs on the right side of the room, then you’ll find Elliot watching some monitors. Just show him the note and he’ll say the words: Dufer bar. And while you’re inside the building, scan the plants at the top of the stairs to find one of the Stray Memories.

Head to Dufer Bar

Now head back down and give the door another scratch in order to exit the building. Turn left, then immediately after reaching the corner, turn right. The entrance to the bar is the first door on the right.

At the end of the bar inside there is a neon sign that says DUFER BAR, and a painting hangs just above. Once you approach the counter, you can interact with the painting hanging above. This will fall from the wall shortly, revealing the secret code. 1-2-83.

Go back and open the safe

After that you will have to go back to the safe and use the digipad to unlock it using the code 1283. You will find Sheet music 8/8 inside, which you can give to codfish in order to advance further in his quest.

Collecting all sheet music unlocks a new song for Morusque to perform, and is required for the Meowlody trophy and achievement.
