The Mantis side quest is probably the best one we have come across so far in the game. However, the Lair of the Mantis has a troubling floor puzzle and if you don’t know which letters to step on, chances are the Turrets will take you out quickly in Starfield. If you know the correct letters, you could avoid the entire problem and solve the Mantis floor puzzle immediately. In this guide, we will provide you with the letters that you need to step on to avoid the Turrets in the room and get across.
To start the entire Mantis quest, players will have to find the ‘Secret Outpost!’ after which, they can follow the quest marker to one of the dead Spacers where they can usually find it.
How to Solve Mantis Floor Puzzle in Starfield
In Starfield, the correct answer to solve the Mantis floor puzzle is to spell out the word TYRANNIS. While the puzzle will be solved that easily, we implore you to remember that the plates are extremely sensitive and one slight unwanted adjustment can trigger a catastrophe for the players. It’s best if you turn entirely at every letter and walk in straight lines in order to avoid triggering any other letters.
In one of the earlier locations, players are going to pick up a call from Leon Voclain – Sic Semper Tyrannis who complains about this word continuously which gives players the solution to the puzzle.
Additionally, keep in mind to save the game right before you reach the Mantis floor puzzle so you can reload immediately if you trigger one of the plates and the Turrets rip you apart. While the rest of the Mantis quest will be a pain, you won’t have more troubling puzzles to deal with.
