During mission 2 (Occupied Residence) in Sniper Elite 5, you have to locate Moller's office, but you will need to gain access to it. The walkthrough describes all 3 ways to get to the office. In addition, you will learn how to get to the secret room to steal intel.
The following walkthrough focuses solely on searching the office and the secret room. The walkthrough for reaching Moller's office can be found on a separate page of the guide - Infiltrating the chateau and finding Moller's office.
- Option A: Open the reinforced door
- Option B: Drop in from the attic
- Option C: Climb in through the window
- Obtain Moller's secrets
Option A: Open the reinforced door
The most obvious option is the main entrance to the office.
Unfortunately, the door is locked and you cannot use a lockpick on it. This problem can be solved in two ways.
The first option is to obtain the door key carried by Friedrich Kummler. The method of his elimination has been described in detail on the Kill List Target - Friedrich Kummler page - you will find him in the eastern ballroom of the chateau.
Note - Try to reach Kummler's corpse shortly after dropping the chandelier on him (or killing him in another way). Otherwise, his corpse may disappear and you won't be able to get the key.
The second option is to destroy the door with a Satchel Charge. As suggested by the game, you can visit the chateau basement - the same room in which you can also find e.g. workbench. Reach the door with the charge. The explosion will, of course, make a lot of noise and may alert nearby enemies.
Option B: Drop in from the attic
To complete the mission objective in this way, you have to reach the top floor of the building to get right above Moller's office. There you will find the closed door shown in the picture, which you can open with a lockpick or bolt cutters.
In the attic, look for the hole in the floor shown in the picture above. Jump through it to reach the office.
Option C: Climb in through the window
In the case of this variant, head to the window to the left of the office's entrance (picture above), i.e. the guarded by one enemy.
Go through the window and move left on the ledge to reach the gutter. Move up a bit and then continue left.
Ultimately, you have to get to the place shown in the picture. You can go down here - the hero should automatically grab the lower window sill. Now you can climb up and get to Moller's office.
Obtain Moller's secrets
Regardless of the option you choose, you will end up in Moller's office. There are a number of interactive items and one of them will unlock a secret passage. The object is random, so interact with the available ones one by one until the passage shown in the picture is opened.
In the hidden office, you can pick up new collectibles and unique loot. The most important are the documents about Operation Kraken presented in the picture above.
