Alan Wake 2 is filled with so many puzzles that you’ll spend quite some time to work out. Whether it’s looking around a room for clues to unlock a padlock or work out a password, head scratching is a constant. One such puzzle that had us stumped for some time in Alan Wake 2 revolves around one questioned based in mathematics, ‘how many cars are in the factory?’

As Saga, you’ll find a cult stash in Watery with a document on to that has the following conundrum on it:
