During the Return 6: Scratch chapter, you will get an objective that will take you to Bright Falls Sherrif’s Station. While exploring the Sherrif’s station, you will find the Pump Action Shotgun that we are looking for. In front of the desk, you will see a piece of paper with clues to unlock the glass and obtain the Pump Action Shotgun.

Here, finding the code to this lock is a bit confusing as it requires a lot of brainwork to get solved. You will need to solve some word puzzles and find out the corresponding numbers to find the code for the lock. For that, you must first find the letters with whom the numbers might correspond. The books on the desk are your clue for this job.

If you look closely, the last names of the authors of these books are Quincey, Batston, and Westmore. So, we should take the first letter of their last name: Q, B, and W. Now, in order to understand the corresponding number, you will need to understand the following things.

  • Here, A=1, B=2, C=3, and so on.
  • For letters with double numbers, you will take the second digit of the number. For example: U= 21. So its corresponding number will be 1 on the lock.

So, if we take Q, B, and W, it stands.

  • Q= 17, we take 7.
  • B= 2
  • W= 23, we take 3.

So, the answer to the code is 7-2-3. By putting these numbers on the lock, you can obtain the Pump Action Shotgun which is one of the strongest weapons in Alan Wake 2. This gun will come in handy in different situations throughout the game to kill Takens, and to survive in adverse situations.
