Lethal Company – How to Open Doors with a Terminal

Opening security doors involves coordination between team members. These doors always have to be opened via the terminal. Here’s the step-by-step process to open these doors:

How to use the Terminal

  • Using the Terminal: Interact with the Terminal and type other. Then, type View Monitor or View Rader.
  • Locate the specific player: To find the player near the security door, input the command ‘Switch’ followed by the player’s name.
  • Find the two-digit code: The radar will display a letter and number code beside that player, such as F5 or D3.
  • Type the code into the Terminal: Enter the code into the terminal to unlock the corresponding security door or use it to shut the door. It can also be used to shut it. If you’ve done right, a message saying BROADCASTED SPECIAL CODE will appear.

Door codes are not the only codes that will appear on the Terminal/Radar. Turrets and mines will also have codes that, if inputted into the Terminal, will switch them off for about five seconds.

Having a designated player to monitor the terminal throughout the Lethal Company is incredibly helpful, especially when diving deeper into the moon. The terminal player not only assists in opening doors but can also warn of potential threats, making their role pivotal for the team’s survival. But it’s also good to know where your teammates died, as you can sell their corpses!

Opening doors with a terminal in Lethal Company requires teamwork, attention to detail, and efficient communication. Whether you are braving the dangers in the field or managing the terminal on the ship, understanding your role is paramount to your survival in Lethal Company, as it’s a team effort.
