What the Mining Laser Control Code is in Mass Effect 1
Liara T’Soni is an Asari researcher in Mass Effect 1. After arriving at Knossos due to her work, she got trapped in an energy field inside a catacomb. She can not move and needs someone else to free her from the outside.
Being unable to move, all she hopes for is someone to come and free her. When you make your way to Knossos, you will come across Liara. She needs helps to escape the energy field. There is a panel that controls the field. The only way to free her is by entering the correct code in the correct order into the panel.
Interact with the panel, and a puzzle will appear on your screen. Console players will be happy to hear that the console version of the game has a solution. However, as for PC, whenever you load the game, the order is randomized, making it impossible to make a pattern.
The only solution on PC is to try every pattern until it unlocks. For PlayStation, the order is X, Square, Circle, Triangle, and then Square. The order for Xbox is A, X, B, Y, and then X. Once you enter the code, you will free Liara from the energy field. As a result, she will become a member of your party.
