Worker’s Keys Location Guide – Stray

About half-way through Chapter 10: Midtown in Stray you sneak into a factory. The story point of this is to steal a energy pack the factory is using to power the subway. While you are in the factory there is an NPC worker you can speak to that asks you to find his keys. Use our Stray Worker’s Keys location guide below to find them.

Speak to the worker looking over the railing.

The worker you need to speak to can be found directly after the second section of the factory where you sneak past two Sentinels using barrels in the toxic sludge. The worker is leaning over the railing on your right when you come out of the tunnel. Go up and speak to him to learn that he’s lost his keys somewhere in the factory.

Where to Find the Worker’s Keys

There is really only one way to go in the factory and that’s forward. Complete the next Sentinels section by pulling the door switch. Go through the door and you will find a stationary Sentinels. To get past these Sentinels wait for the trash to come and block their sensors. They make a shadow you can walk in.

At the end of this section you will need to jump on a barrel. Go right here to find the Worker’s Keys. Grab them to add them to your inventory. The next step is to return them.

Return the Keys to Get the Neco Badge

Return to the barrels and continue moving forward into the factory. Before the next Sentinels you can turn left to walk behind some boxes. Here you will find a level. Pull the lever and the gate next to you opens, allowing you to double back to the worker.

When you do manage to return to the worker give him his keys. He will thank you for helping him and will give you the Neco Badge for your help. This badge appears on your vest and adds to the Badges trophy/achievement completion.
