Control Bureau Alert Guide

Control Bureau Alert Guide
Bureau Alerts are special timed missions in Control, tied to First on Scene and Crisis Management achievements. This Control Bureau Alert Guide will tell you where you can discover the special missions, how to unlock them, and what you must do to complete them.

There are several different types of missions in Control. You have your regular story missions, side missions, Bureau Countermeasures, and Bureau Alerts. The latter works very different to the rest, forcing a time restriction and a level of randomness to the encounters.

Control Bureau Alert Guide

All Control Bureau missions are given at random times. You may just finish an objective or reach a certain location and the mission will appear. It appears as an alert. A loud noise plays and the mission is introduced on the screen. All Bureau Alert missions are under a 20 minute timer. If you die while you have the mission or you don’t get to the mission in time, it fails. You cannot manually restart the mission again.

If you fail a mission, there are other opportunities for the same mission to appear later, but it’s not guaranteed. They are typically more difficult than most of the other content so go in prepared and be cautious.

At the very beginning of Control you discover a Clearance Level 01 locked door. This guide will tell you How To Unlock Clearance Level 01 Door In Control so you can enter the restricted area and loot the mods and other rewards once inside.
Increasing your Clearance Level is required if you want to open all the secret security doors. This guide tells you How To Get Clearance Level 1 Card In Control so you can increase your Clearance Level to one and open the doors that require that level of clearance.
After you unlock Clearance Level 1, you'll want to unlock the next level of Clearance. This guide explains How To Get Clearance Level 2 In Control, which will allow you to access areas and items locked behind doors with a Clearance Level 2 rating.

Blaine "Captain Camper" Smith is one of the original founders of Gamers Heroes. Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk. When he's not catching some Zs, you'll likely find him arguing points he knows nothing about, playing the latest rogue-like he'll never complete, or breaking something on the website that never needed fixing.
