Throughout Rapture, the player will come across doors (and one safe) with 4-digit access Codes required to gain entrance. The codes are usually found nearby or shortly after the lock via audio diaries, written notes and scribbled messages. Many of the locks in BioShock can be hacked or bought out, but it is almost never required. In BioShock 2, hacking combination locks is not an option.
