Use this guide we have for you to learn how to get the Blue Key Card in Payday 3’s Rock the Cradle Heist.
Where to get the blue key card in Rock the Cradle?
You have to steal the blue key card from behind the bouncer guarding the front of the Neon Cradle VIP section. To do this without getting caught, you’ll first have to lure him upstairs by sabotaging the nightclub’s music. This will cause you to leave the observed area and investigate above.
Here’s what you need to do to get the blue key card:
Step 1: Reconfigure the speakers
The first thing you have to do after entering the Neon Cradle nightclub is to go to the front of the VIP area, which is guarded by two doormen. It’s at the end of the first floor, next to the bar. Shade will contact you about VIP passes in the manager’s room, but you’ll also have the option to sabotage the speakers upstairs.
Carefully close the door to the left of the bar so no one notices you do it, and then go up the stairs. After reaching the second floor, turn left and put on the mask. You’ll need it to jump over the rails blocking the stairs because you can’t do it without the mask.
When you’re above the platforms, head over to where the speakers are. Avoid the cameras or take them out with a silenced weapon. There are four speakers you need to reset. After readjusting them, go back down to the second floor.
Step 2: Get rid of the DJ
Grab the DJ as a body protector and move him away from the speaker controls. Keep it somewhere hidden, such as near the stairs leading to the upper platform, so the doorman doesn’t see it. Push him to the ground and tie him up so he doesn’t escape and call the police.
Step 3: Steal the blue key card
Interact with the sound systems to have the doorman go upstairs and investigate. Once he arrives, either steal the blue card behind him or put him out of commission and take it. Preferably one of your teammates who is not already wearing a mask. Use the blue card to open the door to the VIP room and sneak past without alerting the bouncers.
This method of entering the VIP room will make the cameras suspicious when they see you. There is also a ventilation shaft to the left where some barrels can be moved to let your friends in. In addition to opening the door to the VIP club, the blue key card can also be used to open the door with the electrical switches below.
Unfortunately, the only way to sabotage the music is by putting on the mask, which makes it difficult to return to the first floor. This will be easier if you have teammates to help you sneak around, but if you’re playing alone you might prefer to get the VIP passes, unless you have the bug that prevents you from showing the VIP invite to the goalkeeper.
If you authenticated the VIP passes and managed to show them to the doorman, then stealing the blue card will be much easier. Just pick it up after it lets you in. Just be careful that the (Observed) warning doesn’t show when you do this.
