Street Fighter 6 Tracking the Mystery Code: How to solve the Passcode Puzzles

World Tour mode in Street Fighter 6 is one of the most bizarre and unique modes in this package. Traditionally, fighting games focus on their multiplayer, with the single-player components usually just being a gauntlet of fights against CPUs, with a small cutscene and the beginning and the end. Not only does World Tour mode spice things up by adding hubs to travel around, masters to meet and train with, and tons of things to unlock, but it also adds in a ton of new gameplay mechanics besides your traditional 1-on-1 fights.

What you might not expect is that there are even puzzles. That's right, later on in the game you could easily be stumped not by a tough opponent, but a number puzzle. There are two of these passcode puzzles to overcome in Street Fighter 6's World Tour mode, but you can tag us in to solve them for you so you can get back to the action.



What You Need

  • Reach chapter 8-2

  • Reach the SiRN building

How to solve the Tracking the Mystery Code quest code

You'll get most of the way through World Tour mode in Street Fighter 6 before hitting your first puzzle, but it is part of the main quest, so there's no avoiding it. This will happen when you reach Chapter 8-2 and are doing the "Tracking the Mystery Code" quest.

Step 1: Your objective in this quest is to locate three posters hidden in Metro City that each have a clue to the code you need.

Step 2: The three posters are in the following locations, but they are also marked on your map, so they're not terribly hard to find: * On a cargo container in the Red Steel Factory behind Gomorrah * In Bayside Park (at night!) on a billboard beside the stairs near the water * On the window of the Full Tank Burger shop on Westbay Avenue

Step 3: Each poster has two letters and numbers, so the code isn't just given to you. Here's what each of the poster's codes are: * ST33 * ND29 * RD51

Step 4: The trick to these codes is that the first two letters are hinting at what order the numbers need to be entered.

These letters are the final two of the words first, second, and third.

ST would be first, ND second, and RD third, making the correct code 332951.

Step 5: Open your phone and enter the Messages app to input this code to progress to the next step of this quest.

How to solve the SiRN Staff Grace puzzle

A few chapters later, in 13-4, you will be given a math problem by a woman named Grace in the SiRN building to unlock a new contact. This is a tricky problem, even if you're good at math.

Step 1: Speak to Grace and get the problem.

Step 2: The math equation you need to solve is 2^6x3x643

Step 3: Now, we could go through all the steps and proper order of operations, but the solution ends up being so simple that you have a better chance at guessing it correctly anyway.

Step 4: Whether you decide to do the math or not, the solution is 123456. Yup, about as basic as it gets.

Step 5: Once again, pop open your phone, head into you Messages and input the code.

Step 6: Speak to Grace once more and wrap up this quest.

How to change profile Titles in Street Fighter 6

Diving into the world of Street Fighter 6 opens up a whole new arena of customization. Instead of just playing as the iconic world warriors and other designed fighters, you are finally able to create your own custom avatar to face off against these legendary brawlers. The character creator is extensive enough already, but that's only part of the suite of ways you can customize your experience. Titles are back and give you a way to add some flair and personality to your profile when playing against opponents online. Unfortunately, the way to actually change your Title is a bit obscure. Here's how you can change your profile Title in Street Fighter 6.
How to change your Title

After  you've gotten started in the game, head into the Main Menu and go to the Profile section. This is where people will get tripped up. You need to press Square to enter the Battle Settings, then press Triangle to access Update Character Settings, then select Title Settings from the available tabs. This is finally where you are able to go in and pick from any of the Titles you've unlocked so far. The Title will be applied to whichever character you have selected, so you can have different titles set for each character.

Street Fighter 6’s World Tour mode is the best fighting game tutorial ever
A regular fight in Street Fighter 6 World Tour.

As hard as I’ve tried, I’ve never quite been able to wrap my head around traditional 2D fighting games. I’ve clicked with the fast pace of Super Smash Bros., but I’ve just never been able to hold my own online in a King of Fighters XV match. For me, it’s always been an education and onboarding issue. Most fighting games I’ve tried teach me their wealth of nuances in a lightning-fast tutorial that shows me how to do dozens of things in the span of a few minutes. With that whirlwind pace and a lack of practical context, I always find it difficult to actually retain all of that information.

Street Fighter 6 is perhaps the first 2D fighting game that fully solves my problem and that’s because of its standout World Tour mode. At first glance, World Tour seems like a meaty piece of single-player content for players to pick at between matches. But for more casual brawlers like me, it serves a much more important purpose: It’s the most thorough, effective fighting game tutorial ever crafted.
Learning to fight
As a piece of single-player content, World Tour is an ambitious mode. It’s a full-on action RPG that plays like a classic Yakuza game. Players explore Metro City, and a few other locations, in 3D and stop to brawl in 2D battles. It’s a lengthy campaign that takes over 15 hours to complete and is filled with RPG hooks, from stats to skill trees. It’s an impressive piece of content that helps make Street Fighter 6 feel like a fully fleshed-out release on day one.

Street Fighter 6 is the single-player fighting experience I’ve always wanted
A player stands in Metro City's Times Square equivalent in Street Fighter 6 World Tour.

As someone who doesn’t often game competitively, I’m always on the hunt for fighting games with great single-player content. Whether it’s a meaty story mode a la Soulcalibur VI or addictive arcade content like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, I’m always happy when I can master a character’s move set in a low-stakes setting. That’s why I could never really get into Street Fighter 5, a game that was almost solely focused on multiplayer at launch. Later modes would rectify that, but it was largely built for the competitive scene -- and I sure as heck wasn’t skilled enough to learn the game via trial by fire.

So I’m much more excited by the prospect of Street Fighter 6. Seemingly learning from its predecessor’s missteps, developer Capcom has put a lot more into the upcoming sequel’s single-player content. In addition to its classic arcade mode, World Tour is a full-on RPG that lets players beat the snot out of random people around Metro City. Players recently got a small taste of the mode via a new demo, but the full scope of it wasn’t entirely clear.
