Prey is a game in which there’s a lot of security, with doors and safes locked with high-tech mechanisms. You’ll need to find loads of these Prey keycodes to reach new areas and progress through the game, but thankfully almost all the Prey passwords and found on sticky notes placed on desks or inside emails found on easily unlocked workstations. In this Prey passwords and keycodes guide we’ll give you all the info you need.
Amongst others we have the Prey Debriefing Room Safe Code, the Prey maintenance tunnel code, the Prey escape pod keycode, the Prey Psychotronics Keycard, the Prey security booth keycode, and the Prey hidden treasure code.
If you want more info but don’t want to be told about all these lovely keycodes, head on over to our Prey Guide and Walkthrough to get a complete walkthrough of the game, details on optional objectives, and info on the various Neuromods.
But if you're here for the keycodes, and only the keycodes, then keep on reading, for we've prepared a list of all the keycodes and passwords in Prey that are set in stone for each player.
Prey Keycodes for Doors and Safes
Only a small number of passwords and keycodes in Prey are the same on every playthrough, as most scattered throughout Talos 1 are actually randomly generated on each playthrough. We’ve listed the locations below and provided you with the actual numbers you’ll need to input. Enjoy that number entering! Remember, if the code you're looking for isn't listed in this section, you'll have to find the solution in the next section of this guide.

Keycodes and Passwords in Prey
The majority of keycodes and passwords in Prey are generated each time you play, so there isn’t a single number to enter that will work every time. Most keycodes and passwords in Prey can be found by searching the nearby area (there are an amazing number of notes stuck to things that contain login info or safe codes), or you can often hack your way through a locked door.
To begin Hacking in Prey, you'll need to have gained enough Neuromod points to unlock the Hacking 1 ability in the Scientist skill tree. From here, different computers and other hackable items will have different levels of security. So, to hack a security level 3 computer, you'll have to have upgraded your Hacking skill all the way to Hacking 3. Be advised that each successive Hacking skill level costs an increased amount of Neuromod points to unlock, so you'll have to be on the lookout for them around Talos 1.
If you don’t fancy hacking, we’ve got the locations of each keycode and password for you in a easy to read table, directly below this portion of text.
