Not rarely indie games prove to be better than high-budget, AAA productions. There are many reasons for it, though freedom of creation and experimentation seem to be the most important ones. Lethal Company is one of those titles that is taking over Steam by the storm, even though it’s still in Early Access. Just recently, it broke a record of 100,000 concurrent players enjoying the production. Many of them have issues with opening doors that can only be unlocked only via a terminal. If you are wondering how to achieve this, we are here to help.

How to unlock terminal doors in Lethal Company

Lethal Company is a co-op survival horror game that is randomly generated. Due to its random nature, codes for opening doors vary, though the mechanism is surprisingly simple after you understand how it works.

Note that it is impossible for solo players to unlock terminal doors. Lethal Company is a cooperative game in its core and playing with others increases your chances of survival.

It all comes down to terminal operation. First, one of the players has to remain on the ship to operate the terminal. In order for the person on the ship to open doors, they have to do the following:

  1. Interact with the terminal (press “E” key),
  2. Type View Monitor command and press enter,
  3. By using Switch command, they can swap between players they are monitoring,
  4. Once the player requesting the door to be opened is found, the player will be able to see letter-number codes (e.g., “P4”, “T2”, etc.),
  5. Simply type in the code corresponding to the doors that are required to be opened, and that’s it.

In the exact same way, doors can be closed, turrets switched on or off, land mines disabled, and so on. Obviously, codes that are green in the terminal means that the device is opened / enabled, and red indicates closed / disabled.
