While playing as Saga Anderson in Alan Wake 2, you will have a variety of weapons to add to your arsenal over time, which should be a priority, as the more you progress in the game, the more difficult it gets to survive. One very intriguing weapon to obtain is the long-ranged specialist Hunting Rifle, which can heavily damage enemies with just a couple of shots, giving them no chance to survive. 

This guide discusses how you can get the Hunting Rifle in Alan Wake 2. So, if you want to blow the enemy’s head off, then you should follow this guide until the end to know what exactly needs to be done to get the menacing weapon.

How To Get The Hunting Rifle In Alan Wake 2

In order to get the Hunting Rifle, you first need to progress in the game up to the Return 5: Old Gods chapter. This will give you access to the Wellness Center, the area where the said weapon awaits. You can find the gun in the Workshop room, but it is more complex than you think!

Security Pass

When you reach the Wellness Center, you will see that the Workshop room is locked and demands a missing doorknob. Your primary mission is to find this item before you can get hold of the Hunting Rifle. So, without wasting any further time, get into the Security room, which is on the left of the Workshop room. Once inside, you will need to access a locked computer, which will help you unlock every existing door in the Wellness center. The computer will require a password.  Enter 170823 and it will open up. 

After accessing the computer, press the required button to open the doors. However, your job is not done yet! Before you leave the room, check out the mail on the very same computer to get some clues about the location of the Doorknob. One of the emails contains a riddle: “I meet you at the greet, inside a bright glassy cage, where pretty flowers bloom.” This might sound a bit tricky to understand, so just move out of the security room and go near the reception, which has flowers on a glass wall.


After that, move a little forward to encounter a wooden door on the right to the first sliding door. Then, get inside it, and you will find another door that is already unlocked. This room holds the Doorknob–the item is kept in a box. So, quickly collect it and return to the Workshop room without getting lost, and use the said item to gain access inside.

With this, you will find the Hunting Rifle very easily, along with other handfuls of items scattered around. On the same note, you must remember to keep some space in your inventory as the massive gun will require a lot before you can get hold of it.
