In Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War‘s campaign, players get a hub to visit in between missions. In this safe house, there’s a gate that is locked by a six-digit code. If players want to get all the endings, finding the safe house gate code is essential. Fortunately, Adler and crew have terrible opsec, and the combo for the safe house gate lock is easy to find.
Unlocking the safe house gate in Black Ops Cold War gives players access to both a computer terminal and an arcade machine. These two items lead to easter eggs, including some retro Activision games. This is only one of the many puzzles that players will have to solve, and it’s a lot easier than decrypting the floppy disk and finding the three spies.
What is the safe house gate code in Black Ops Cold War?
For those that don’t want to decipher the clues for themselves, the safe house gate code is 112263. History buffs will notice this is the date of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald. Some players might wonder whether the use of that date has a deeper meaning, but as far as we can tell, it doesn’t.
How to find the safe house gate combo in Black Ops Cold War
Finding the clues needed to unlock the gate in the safe house is very easy. To the right of the gate, there’s a memo that says:
- Clinical Record
- Warren Commission
- Dallas News Article”
Players need to find these three Kennedy Assassination-related documents for clues to the gate code.
Clinical Record Location
This clue is the toughest to find. It’s in the blue-colored hallway past the gate. It’s on the right side and is somewhat obscured by the junction box beside it.
“..there is an entrance gunshot wound in the posterior cranium measuring 15mm x 6mm. Radiating from the wound are multiple fracture lines, the longest of which measures approximately 19cm in length…”
Warren Commission Report Location
The Warren Commission report on Lee Harvey Oswald is directly in front of the gate on the ground.
“…a year after his return to the U.S. in 1962, Oswald visited the Russian Embassy in Mexico City. The CIA intercepted at least two phone calls between the Russian and Cuban Embassies. During one call, Oswald himself was on the phone…”
Dallas News Article Location
The Dallas News article can be found in the darkroom located behind the evidence board.
“stationed by a window on the six flood of the Texas School Book Depository, the shooter fired three consecutive shots, killing the President of the United States…”
Placing the highlighted numbers from each document in the order given by the memo next to the gate provides the code: 11-22-63.
