Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong: Scene 3 – Loft Walkthrough
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong sends Leysha to investigate the ill-fortuned party that kick-started the events of the game. This is the moment the Code Red was called, and you need to infiltrate the crime scene, find out what happened, and get out with Prince Iverson’s Childe, Miley.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong third chapter follows Leysha as she investigates the gory events surrounding the Hartford Chantry and Camarilla’s ill-fated celebration after being dispatched to the aftermath of the unification party at the end of Scene 1. Them’s chock-full of answers to some of Swansong’s most perplexing early-game puzzles, and our walkthrough will guide you through it.
You’ll need to keep an eye on your Hunger gauge if you want to get the most out of your vampire skills. This is especially true in this mission, as Leysha has a number of skills, such as Doppelganger, that swiftly deplete your Hunger.
Fortunately, there are lots of edible individuals and Safe Zones to snack on.
Dressing Room – Take the first door on your right at the start of the scene to reach the dressing room.
Bathroom – After you’ve chatted to the Chief in the main party area, proceed towards forensics, turn right, and go through the door on your right.
Photocopier Room – When you enter the main party space, you can use Auspex to trace the aroma of cherry lipstick in the photocopier room. To find an unseen door, follow this to the left. A Safe Room is located to the right of this invisible entrance.
Laundry Room – When you enter the Forensic Corridor with Halsey, you will be forced into the laundry room.
The chapter starts with Leysha and Halsey arriving on the scene, and it doesn’t take long for them to figure out why the code red was called in…
After the introductory cutscene, proceed to the end of the corridor and speak with the two police officers stationed at the apartment’s entryway. They’ll refuse to let Leysha in, claiming that only police officers are allowed past this point. It appears that one of Leysha’s three main vampiric abilities, Mask of a Thousand Faces, is about to be activated.
This aptly called ability allows Leysha to blend in with her enemies by allowing her to disguise herself in NPC clothing. Look for an NPC wearing a clothing you want to imitate to use it. To clone the outfit, press SPACE / RT / R2 and then choose a safe zone. To change into the clothing, use CTRL / RB / R1 once inside.
You’ll need to change into an officer’s uniform to see how this works in our present scenario. The two cops you just spoke with, on the other hand, aren’t of sufficient rank to enter the crime scene; they’re simply standing guard. Instead, turn invisible, stroll past the two guards, and imitate the homicide detective’s attire in the room ahead. She’ll be investigating the dead on the floor as the lone NPC in the room.
After you’ve replicated her attire, travel back past the two guards and down the corridor towards the elevator, looking for a door on your left. This will take you to a secure area. As inside, Leysha will experience a premonition, but once it passes, change into the clothing. You’re now ready to investigate the crime.
