During the Zero Hour mission, pay close attention to a specific area. You’ll encounter a dark area with a map prominently displayed on a wall (Refer to the above picture).

While its purpose might not be immediately clear, this map holds the key to a later section.

As you start exploring, you will enter through a vent on the floor and come across some pipes on the wall. This is the opposite area of the vault.

You will find gray tiles near the pipes. Once you stand on these tiles, the vault door will open.

After entering the vault you will see an empty room with a big tile-like pattern on the floor. You will have to follow the same pattern you saw on the wall before entering the vault. Imitate the pattern as you walk on the tiles to make your way out.

Make sure you walk correctly and follow the pattern exactly to complete the Zero Hour puzzle. Any mistake will lead you to redo the whole thing over again.

Once you are out, you will face the final boss named TR3-VR. At this point, you should have about 10 minutes in hand. After beating him, you will complete the mission.

We advise to keep a cool head during the mission and always keep checking the timer.
