On this page of our guide for Control - a newest title from Remedy Entertainment you'll find a walkthrough and the locations of all sought paranormal objects. You will learn, e.g. where to find all 7 paranormal objects and how to purify them.
The quest starts automatically after Fridge Duty side mission.
Japanese paper lantern
The object can be found in Sealed Threshold Corridor in the Containment sector. To reach this location, you first need to complete another side quest - A Matter of Time. The item of power lies among the bricks and is easy to disenchant.
The item can be found in Medical Wing in the Containment sector. The chair will defend itself from cleaning - it will fly up. Use telekinesis and clean the item.
The sought item can be found in Dead Letters in the Executive. The first letter is found below, all you have to do is to wait in one of the locations to which the letter teleports, and use the opportunity to clean it.
The following letters are above - you need to use Levitation to reach previously inaccessible locations found above. The rooms further ahead contain two disappearing letters.
This altered item is located in Panoptikon in the Containment. You have to go to the fourth floor, room 716. The lights will change colors to prevent you from reaching them. When turned green, you can safely approach the object, when turned yellow, get ready to freeze, when the object turns red, stand still and don't move. After a while, you will reach the lights and be able to release them from The Hiss
When you complete the task, go to Langston, and you'll receive a quest for another two objects.
The dummy is located in Prime Candidate Program in the Containment. You can get there after starting The Face of the Enemy main mission - its first objective is to reach that place. Proceed to the end of the room, right after crossing the twisted road. You will find yourself in a room full of mannequins.
You have to interact with the right mannequin. You'll find it above, on the left side of the room (check the map).
This object is in the Protective Studies in the Research - we have marked it on the picture. The best way to get there is to fast travel to the Ritual Division and then head south.
Follow the corridor leading left of the glass room with the duck. Find the door presented in the picture - they are hidden behind crates. You can move them using telekinesis.
Find the hole located high up on the wall - see the picture. You have to use Levitate skill. This means you need to complete My Brother's Keeper main quest first. Run down that corridor to a place where you will be able to jump down a hole in the floor. You will get next to the room with the duck.
The duck will disappear when you try to grab it. Go back to the main area and start looking around. Follow the sounds to find the duck. The item will disappear again. After a few tries, you will finally be able to catch and "purify" the object.
Travel to Sealed Threshold Corridor in the Containment. When you reach the Flamingo, the floor will start to spin - use levitation, jump and bends to avoid waves. In the end, you get to the object. Once you purify it, you'll enter the Astral Plane.
Time for another encounter with The Former. The enemy has the same range of motion as before, use telekinesis, levitation and try to kill him as soon as possible to avoid too many holes in the ground.
After the fight, talk to Langston to finish this long side quest and get rewards, including 3 skill points.
A detailed strategy for the fight with the Former can be found in the Bosses chapter.
