Welcome to our DEATHLOOP Weapons How to Get Early guide. In Deathloop, you won’t start off with much in terms of weaponry, and each time the day resets, you’ll be back to square one – until you learn how to harvest Residium that is. This guide contains information on how to score a few great weapons early – as soon as you enter Updaam, in fact!
DEATHLOOP Weapons How to Get Early
How to Sneak Into the Library
For this trick, you’ll need to gain access to the Library, the large building in the center of Updaam. However, there are a few rules you’ll need to be aware of:
- Each morning, a timer starts when you leave the tunnel that can be seen outside the Updaam Library. You’ll have roughly 7 minutes before the timer hits 0, and the doors open.
- Waiting outside either side of the Library are two large groups of Eternalists, just waiting to get inside.
- Inside the Library, 4 Scouts patrol the upper floors, while one patrols the basement before the doors unlock.
- The Library is full of weapons of every type, and even a few trinkets – but the good ones are locked behind display cases. By Noon, the place will be all cleared out.
Knowing that, there is a way to get in early – before the doors open – and get what you need, but it takes a bit of work and some practice.
To start, after you leave the tunnel, jump right up the rocky mound onto the rooftops above the archive gate, and cross above the gate towards the library while remaining on the lower grassy path so those waiting outside the Library don’t see you.
As you approach the right corner of the Library, look up to spot an open window – and use your Spring Heeled trinket to double jump up and into the second floor window out of sight of the Eternalists outside.
You’ll be on the top floor of the Library, move into the room on the right and then sneak up to the balcony overlooking the main floor below – one scout is here and can be melee killed quietly. Two more are below – leave them for a moment and look for another scout on the far side that will move along the stairs toward your position. Wait until they pass through the doorway to rush and kill them.
Now you can mark and watch the two in the main hall of the Library. One likes to patrol in a circle, and you can either kill the one in the center first, or use a Spiker to quietly headshot one and rush the other with your machete. So long as they don’t have time to radio for help, no alarms will sound and the doors will remain closed.
Before you start looking to plunder, head down the stairs towards the front entrance leading to the basement, and look for one last scout patrolling down here. Kill him, and be sure to use your Hackamajig on all the cameras along the way.
Be sure to look for a blue power junction box at the bottom of the stairs by several blue lasers. There are more lasers guarding a room on the main floor – and this is why the power box is important. Destroy this power junction, and the security lasers will go out.
You can now go into the room off the main floor and disable the camera, and then unlock two display cases – one contains a Sleek Trinket that increases your max health, and the other contains an Exemplar Spiker. This weapon has its own permanent buff – allowing you to deal extra damage to marked targets, which will almost garuntee one-shot kills at full power.
You should still have several more minutes to unlock all the other display cases on the top floor to get sleek versions of every other type of weapon you need, as well as another Sleek Trinket that turns your grenade into a tagging sonar device.
For an added bonus, you can use your Hackamajig on all the turrets placed around the doors to the Library. Once you’ve gotten control of them all, simply wait until the timers ticks down, and the Eternalists will more than likely all be gunned down as they try to enter!
