Payday 3: How to Flip the Right Switch in No Rest for the Wicked

Are you ready to embark on a thrilling stealth mission in Payday 3’s No Rest for the Wicked heist? The game offers a challenging experience, especially when it comes to deciphering ambiguous objectives. One such task involves finding and flipping the correct switch to open the security gate leading to the vault. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to successfully accomplish this mission.

Finding the Power Room and Obtaining the Red Keycard

To begin, you’ll need to locate the power room where the switch is located. The power room can be found either upstairs or on the roof. Look for a red keycard reader marking the entrance to the power room. To gain access, you’ll need the red keycard, which can be obtained from one of the guards.

Turning Off the Power to the Gate

Before you can flip the right switch and proceed to the vault, you’ll need to turn off the power to the gate. Here’s a quick guide on how to accomplish this:

  1. Locate the control panel: Once inside the power room, search for a control panel that controls the gate’s power supply. It is typically marked with various switches and buttons.

  2. Identify the correct switch: Look for the switch that corresponds to the gate’s power. It is usually labeled or positioned differently from the other switches.

  3. Deactivating the power: Flip the identified switch to the off position. This will cut off the gate’s power supply, allowing you to proceed further in the heist.

Flipping the Correct Switch

Now that the power to the gate has been deactivated, it’s time to find and flip the correct switch that opens the gate leading to the vault. Follow these steps:

  1. Search for the switch panel: Once you’ve disabled the power to the gate, search for a switch panel nearby. This is where the actual switch that opens the gate is located.

  2. Observing the switch colors: Take note of the various switch colors available on the switch panel. The correct color is required to open the gate successfully.

  3. Referencing the power room: Remember the power room where you initially found the keycard? The switch panel should correspond to the colors found in the power room. Look for a switch that matches the colors observed in the power room.

  4. Flip the correct switch: Once you’ve identified the correct switch color, flip it to activate the gate-opening mechanism. Congratulations! You’ve successfully completed the task and can now advance to the vault.
