How to get to the Japanese Lantern / A Matter of Time



How to get to the Japanese Lantern
Containment Sector


August 24 2019


The Japanese Lantern is one of the Altered Items you have to contain in Langston's Runaways Mission.
There doesn't seem to be a way to it.
So, this is how you get there:

Find Horowitz. He's in front of one of the shelters at Logistics.
Here's the map:


He'll give you the Mission "A Matter of Time".

Switch to that mission and Traverse the Oceanview Motel. How?
The cord is right next to Horowitz.
Pull it 3 times.

The Black Triangle room is closed and you need to find the key.

See the clock at Reception?
It shows 3:20


Now hit the bell at the reception and go into the open room to adjust the time to 3:20
The clock will ring when you made it.

Go back to reception and hit the bell.
Clock now shows 5:40

Go inside the second room and set the time on the clock to 5:40.
The clock will ring when you made it.

Go back to reception and hit the bell.
The Clock now shows 8:25

Go to the third room and set the time to 8:25
The clock will ring when you made it.

Back at reception, there is the key.
Go through the locked door and pull the cord 3 times.

You will end up in the south east corner of the map.



Now you can go to the next room and cleanse the checkpoint.
The medic is on the upper floor of this checkpoint room.

Escort him through the area until you get to a closed gate.
Go up the pile of clocks.


Climb all the way up until you can open the gate on the other side.

In the next room, the Sealed Threshold Hall, there is another fighting session.
In this room is the Japanese Lantern.
First, escort the medic back.

Exit the room through the top, go down on the other side to the next checkpoint.
It's above the Turntable.

Follow the path all the way down.
You'll come out at the closed door at Logistics.
Take the medic to Horowitz, who turned into a Hiss
Now talk to the Medic and finish "A Matter of Time".

Go back to the Japanese Lantern.
You can easily contain it now...

About "A Matter of Time" and the Japanese Lantern

You might struggle with this, if you do the Langston mission first, where you have to bring back the Altered Items.
There is no way to get to the Japanese Lantern. The only door that could lead to it is a locked door in Logistics.

But then, when you go to the other side of Logistics and you see the Mission giver for "A Matter of Time" and the cord that potentially takes you to the motel, the penny drops.

When playing through "A Matter of Time" an NPC will open those locked doors for you (which are Clearance Level 9 - a clearance level Jesse can't get).

Fun fact:
After finishing "A Matter of Time" you can also use the cord to fast travel.
