So here's the deal. There's a decoder for opening the door which leads to the system of operation of Monolith...You'll take the decoder, find the right door in the sarcophagus, and then...and then you'll see how it goes.

Secret lab - mission is a primary mission segment in Shadow of Chernobyl.

Acquiring the MissionEdit

Complete the Secret stash in Pripyat task to receive the Secret lab - mission mission.


This mission, or task, is one of several that overlap near the end of the game. Since you need to be in the Sarcophagus before you can find the secret door, you need to complete the last step of Reach the power plant. Once you're inside the plant, you have Monolith soldiers at every turn. You will then reach a point where you must decide to complete this mission or Wish granter.

Mission: Find the hidden doorEdit

The Sarcophagus map is very linear as you work your way through the lower level and up the stairs. At the top of the stairs, and once you clear the way of Monolith, you can go left to the Wish Granter or right to find the hidden door. If you want to explore both options, this is the point to save your game because each way has a different ending to the game. When you reach the room with the hidden door, this mission is complete.

Mission: Open it using the decoderEdit

Walk up to the door and press Action. A timer starts and when it's done this mission is complete. However, you may be too busy to notice because you're fighting off more Monolith that have spawned behind you.

Mission: Find out what is behind the doorEdit

Go through the door and continue until to transport to the next level, Monolith Control Center. When you spawn, the Secret lab mission is complete and a new task shows on your PDA: The Monolith's secret.
