Garrett - the main character of Thief 4 (for whom the gamer plays) - returns to save his student Erin, and at the same time the cities where they live, from the power of the tyrannical Baron, who has plunged the settlement into darkness. However, you should not consider the title character a kind of noble knight. That's why he is a thief of the highest class, in order to clean out other people's caches in parallel with the main mission.
What do safes keep?
The famous burglar, pickpocket and bugbear in one person comes across fourteen safes in various episodes of the game. Not all of them contain banal jewelry or money. Often, without breaking into such a storage and appropriating the items that were there, it will be incredibly difficult for Garrett to go to the next episode, since the safe contains both tips and items that are needed to transfer to various NPCs.
At the same time, it is important to be careful in terms of finding such repositories. Although most of them - nine of them - are located in the locations where the main action takes place, and one is in the character's city apartment, four are still in places where the hero has to carry out side missions.
In addition, the safe should not only not be overlooked. Garrett, like anyone in his craft, must be wary of being discovered by various NPCs who will then chase him and interfere with the gameplay. Therefore, one must be extremely vigilant in order to avoid such unnecessary witnesses of the break-in.
Basic principles of hacking cells
The gamer for the successful passage of Thief 4 will have to really try himself in the role of a thief (fortunately, only on the game map). It will be important for him to be able to eavesdrop on the conversations of other characters, to follow and sneak behind them, if necessary. Only in this way will he be able to find, in particular, a cache behind a boarded-up door in the production workshop of the Foundry.
In addition, Garrett will not be able to open a single safe if he does not first find the appropriate cipher. In most cases, the coveted numbers, the input of which opens the combination lock of one or another storage, are contained in all kinds of written sources: diaries, letters, etc. One day he will even find the combination on the door of the locker opposite the vault.
Sometimes the code will get to the hero automatically - with some other important thing. For example, in the case of a huge safe in the fortress, Garrett will get the code at the same time as the plan of this fortification. In other cases, the skill of a pickpocket will be required from him (for example, to steal a note with a code from one of the guards, so that he does not notice the robber).
Truly thieves' mega-accuracy and noiselessness will be needed by gamers in everything. So, to the safe in the dwelling of the ruler of the city - Northcrest - he will have to sneak behind the backs of upholstered furniture, so as not to be noticed by the vigilant guard standing at a post nearby.
Do not be tempted to break into safes that are too visible. This is very suspicious - there must be some clever trap nearby, which must be neutralized before opening the coveted vault. In addition, sometimes you cannot do without additional items. For example, to neutralize the trap at the safe in the brothel, Madame Xiao Xiao Garrett will come in handy with wire cutters.
In a word, the character will have to go through real quests on the way to the loot. None of them are like the other, and therefore they are very exciting. This is probably one of the reasons the game is loved by thousands of gamers.
