The Control Luck and Probability puzzle in the Maintenance Sector in the Luck and Probability room is quite a doozy. It’s not even clear that it is a puzzle, after all, since it is optional, out of the way, and doesn’t give you any sort of indication that it is something to solve. But you can solve it and gives you some gear and experience for doing so. So here is the solution for the luck puzzle in Control.
Control Luck and Probability Puzzle Solution | How to solve it
First, you will need the Level 5 keycard. You will get that later in the game.
Once you have that, go to the Luck and Probability room where you first meet Marshall, the gray-haired woman with the big gun. For the purpose of this puzzle, the actual room with the puzzle will be called the puzzle room and the room with the actual desks and office cubicles will be called the outer room.
Grab a four-leaf clover from the outer room. Then go plant it in in the puzzle room. There’s planter box in there by the television in the center of the room.
Turn on all the lights in the puzzle room. There are four: three on the desks near the door and one in the middle of the room opposite of the whiteboard.
Go to the outer room and use Launch to grab the golden fish statue from one of the desks in the front of the room. You can’t miss it. It’s a big gold fish (but not a goldfish). Place it right near the craps table in the puzzle room.
Go to the outer room and go to the desk with the whiteboard and horseshoe. As the whiteboard shows, flip the horseshoe until it is a “U” shaped with the round end at the bottom.
Go to the outer room and make all the Newton’s cradles go by interacting with them. There is one by the elephant and one by the other horseshoe (not the one by the whiteboard). It’s unclear how many of these you need to be going but do all of them just to be safe. If that doesn’t work, only do the one by the elephant.
Then go into the outer room and go touch the cat statue with the waving hand. It will start waving. You may need to time the final step with its hand being up. That is also a little unclear.
If everything is in place, then just go to the craps table and hold the interact button on the spinner thing. You also should probably stand exactly where Jesse is standing in the picture just to be safe. You will get a Golden Suit, two ability points, and some Astral Blip.
