Starfield has a quest chain from an NPC called Louisa located in the Well of . As part of a quest chain, you will be sent to look for various switches and terminals in , with many as simple as go to the box and pressing a button on them. However, the final one in the Tapping The Grid quest in Starfield requires you to bypass a locked door requiring the Computer Skill. If you don’t have that, then you have a puzzle to solve.
Tapping The Grid Requires Computer Puzzle Guide
When you reach the section requiring the Computer to bypass the door, you must do a small puzzle instead. The requirements for the quest are as follows:
- Activate the leftmost terminal
- Activate the second from the left terminal
The one on the left activates the outward most lights of the four. Meanwhile, the second one activates the lights in the center. With them both pressed, all four are online, and you can now open the door.
If you do have computing, you can attempt one of those hacks and open the door. Doing so will allow you to bypass the puzzle if you do not need to it and get the objective. Once you have gone to the lockbox, you can now go to the other boxes, then return to Louisa to complete the quest. Louise will now be in her office directly above where you first found her in The Well. To access her office to complete the quest, simply to where she was, walk further down the road, and you’ll find a stairway behind some pipes and vents to grant you access to the building and end the quest.
From then on, you get the Alternating Currents quest, which comes with a choice, and some harder-to-reach fuseboxes again.
