Control walkthrough - Guide and tips for completing the main missions

Our walkthrough for Control on PS4, Xbox One and PC. 

Control is the latest supernatural thriller for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

You join Jesse Faden as she enters the mysteriously sinister Federal Bureau of Control in search for her younger brother, Dylan. The Bureau, however, is under attack from a force only known as the Hiss, whose motives are unknown.

Jesse finds herself taking on the position of Director - the Head of Federal Bureau of Control. This makes her the only person who can stop the Hiss and she's not even getting paid.

Our Control walkthrough will soon provide a step-by-step guide to completely the main missions, as well as side mission and other useful guides.

We've also included some useful tips and tricks to help you on your journey through the Oldest House.

Control Walkthrough

Control is divided up into a series of main missions.

Each mission will take you to a new area in the Oldest House, the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Control, as you try to stop the Hiss and find Dylan. Both the Hiss and a variety of puzzles, however, will try to stop you in your tracks.

The guides below will take you through each mission, explaining how to solve tricky puzzles and defeat the difficult Hiss.

We've also included the location of the various collectables you can discover in your travels through the Oldest House. These range from employee complaints to science presentations, with each one giving you an insight to life at the Bureau.

Be warned, however, these guides do contain spoilers.

Control Side Missions Guides

As you transverse the weird world of the Oldest House, you'll come across other oddities aside from your main mission to find Dylan.

This could be anything from tackling rogue Object of Power to helping out Ahti, the completely normal, janitor. Ahti thinks you're his new assistant and he doesn't want to miss his holiday, so you might as well do as he asks.

Control Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks that will help you traverse the Oldest House:

  • Don't forget to upgrade Jesse! After completing a Mission you'll be given a number of Abilities points. You can use these to upgrade Jesse's health and various powers. You can do this at the Control Point in Central Executive.
  • Always stay on the move in combat. Combat in Control is fast and, if you get stuck in a corner, you can find yourself dead very quickly. For this reason, it's a good idea to stay on the move, dodging bullets and throwing chairs at enemy Hiss.
  • Deconstruct any unwanted mods. Deconstructing unwanted Personal and Weapon Mods will supply you with a small amount of Source Energy. You can then use this Source Energy to build new Weapon Forms for your Service Weapon to help you take out the Hiss.
  • Collect as many collectables as you can. The Oldest House is full of collectables for you to find. Some are small easter eggs, others hint at dark events in the Bureau's past and a few will unlock new Side Missions for you to complete.

  • Set Board Countermeasures. Board Countermeasures are additional little tasks for you to complete as you battle Hiss. A countermeasure can be anything from getting a certain number of headshots or killing a specific enemy. Completing countermeasures will reward you with a range of Weapon and Personal Mods.
  • Find new Objects of Power. Objects of Powers are what give Jesse her supernatural powers. You'll find some Objects of Power, like the Floppy Disk, as part of the main storyline, while others are hidden away in Side Missions. Try to find as many Objects of Power as you can to increase Jesse's ability list.
  • Always use Personal and Weapon Mods. Personal and Weapon Mods provide you with a variety of boosts - from extra health to increase reload speed. A well chosen Mod could be the difference between winning or losing a battle. So always make sure you stay on top of your Mods!
