Safe in Mendoza - location
The safe is located in the basement of Don Yates Villa (point 43 on the map). The easiest way to reach the basement is to take the stairs from the foyer on the first floor of the building (point 49 on the map). In the basement, you can unlock two different shortcuts which make it easier to reach the basement from the winery and from the outside of the building.
The safe is hidden in one of the walls. There are 2 mercenaries nearby who may recognize Agent 47 even if he wears an identical outfit to theirs. Fortunately, you can sneak past them.
How to open the safe in the villa?
If you want, you can optionally find a hint to learn the combination to the safe. In the upstairs office of the villa (point 50 on the map) hangs a calendar with a note on Valentina and Archibald's wedding anniversary.
The code to the safe is the date they got married - 2006.
What are the uses of the documents found in the safe?
In the safe, you will find a Report on Data Leak which will award you with the Scandal challenge. From the report, you will learn that Don Yates played a vital role in ruining his wife's diplomatic career.
Make sure you wear a mercenary disguise that allows you to travel freely around the villa. Find Valentina on the villa grounds (she's dressed in yellow) and press the interact button to give her the report. From this point on you can only be an observer - Valentina will become enraged after reading the report and will push Archibald during a brawl with him on the balcony of the villa. This will lead to Yates' death. We've covered this in more detail on the page about the Murder of Don Yates.
