How to Solve the Motive Force Rykad Minoris Upperway Warehouse Puzzle in Warhammer 40k: Rogue Trader

Once you defeat the cultists in the Rykad Minoris Upperway warehouse, you will notice that you can interact with various items that say something about a Motive Force. Well, this puzzle activates if you interact with the Congitator or Safe in the northern part of the warehouse.

Once it activates, you will need to interact with the right items in the right order to unlock the safe and get some decent loot.

Here is the exact order you need to click everything in the room to solve the Motive Force puzzle in Warhammer 40k: Rogue Trader, along with a map below to show you the location of each one of the objectives:

The problem with the puzzle is that there are many items that say “Unlatch the Damper” or “Close the Relay,” so make sure to use the map above to find the right devices to complete the puzzle.

Inside the safe you will find a Hand Flamer and a Stub Carbine. Unfortunately, these are not some rare weapons, since you will already have a few from previous battles, but it is still better than nothing. Still, Owlcat could have given us more for fighting this random puzzle.
