The Alan Wake 2 Only Striped Cups stash puzzle seems like it could be obvious since a place called Coffee World would have the potential to have a lot of cups. But this stash is not referring to literal cups, making this a bit more difficult. Here’s how to solve the Only Striped Cups stash puzzle in Alan Wake 2.
How to solve the Only Striped Cups stash in Alan Wake 2
To solve the Only Striped Cups stash in Alan Wake 2, players have to find the cups from the riddle in question somewhere in the Coffee World grounds. However, the cups from the short hint are just the carriages on the nearby Ferris wheel where the jovial music is blaring out of. They literally look like big cups; fitting for a place full of coffee-related items and rides.
Look up at the carriages and you will see that only some are striped, while others are covered in flames or various other colors. The striped cups have the numbers 7, 4, and 1 on them.
However, punching them in in that order will not work, which is where the second part of this puzzle comes in. The small arrow on the box runs clockwise, while ride itself goes counterclockwise. This means you will have to put the numbers in backwards for it to unlock. Put in 147 as the code and the lock will click open once you hold the right combo for a second or two.
There is not much in this stash, as it only holds a few shotguns shells and pistol rounds. The short message at the top simply asks players to not take what is not theirs, but these are murderous cultists and they do not have the moral high ground here to lecture on what not to steal.
