Control Punchcard Terminals Puzzle Guide: How To Restart HRA Machine

Control Control HRA Punchcard Terminals Guide

Our Control HRA Punchcard Terminals Guide will help you with how to restart the HRA Terminal as it’s a small puzzle that you need to solve by inserting five punchcards in the right terminals.

Players will need to restart Punchcard Terminals as part of a mission “Old Boys’ Club”. What you need to do is input correct punchcards into five terminals to turn on the HRA machine.

This takes place in the HRA lab and there you’ll also find whiteboards with designs drawn on them. These cubic designs are actually the key to HRA Punchcard terminals. What you need to do is examine the whiteboards to know which punchcard will go into which terminal.

How To Restart The Punchcard Terminal
First, collect all of the punchcards scattered about, one will be located next to the fourth terminal upstairs. Each machine is marked with a number on its side revealing which punchcard needs to be inserted.

Here is what the whiteboards tell us about the punchcards. The first whiteboard upstairs reveals the first and the fourth punchcard patterns.

The second whiteboard downstairs reveals the punchcard pattern for the second and third terminal.

Also, keep an eye on the additional arrow that will reveal that you need to switch around the second and third punchcards. Meaning the third punchcard is the second punchcard while the 2nd one is the third punchcard.

The third whiteboard will reveal the pattern for the fifth terminal, however, by using all the other terminals you’ll know which punchcard is for the fifth terminal as it’ll be the only one remaining.

Now what you need to do is place the right punchcards in the right terminal and the HRA Machine will restart and the mission will be completed.
