Alan Wake 2 Crossbow Guide: Cult Stash Padlock Combination

This deadly weapon is an excellent choice for taking enemies out quietly.

Alan Wake 2 features various weapons to help you survive its nightmarish blend of fiction and reality, and they’re all useful in their own way. But if you’re looking to take a stealthier approach, or simply want to dish out huge damage a single shot, you’ll appreciate the Crossbow. You can find this deadly weapon while exploring the dreary forests outside of Watery, and we’ll tell you how to open the stash that contains it below.

Where to find the Crossbow in Alan Wake 2

You can find the Crossbow near a break room shack in the forests of the Watery map while making your way to Coffee World. Outside of the shack is a Cult Stash containing the weapon, but the attached padlock will block you from opening it without the proper combination.

If you’d like a hint on how to solve this one for yourself, just take a look at the crossbow bolts on the various numbers nearby and see what you can come up with. 

Cult Stash Padlock Combination

If you’d like to skip figuring out the combination for yourself, we’ve got it for you here. When you’re ready to open the stash, head over to the padlock and enter: 527.

Grab the Crossbow once you’ve opened the stash, then head over and pick up all of the bolts in the nearby number signs to give you plenty of ammo. Even better, you’ll be able to pick up bolts you use to kill your enemies throughout the game, making this one of the most efficient weapons in Alan Wake 2.

That’s all you need to know to get the crossbow in Alan Wake 2! While you’re here, check out our guide on how to get the sawed-off shotgun.
