I'm going to steal my family's book back. And if Raleigh gets in my way... it's on.

"A Stealthy Approach" was a job in Tide of Terror of Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. After the prologue, it is the first job in the game.


After stealing the police files of all the Fiendish Five members, Sly Cooper and the gang prepares to retrieve the first part of the Thievius Raccoonus, which is in the possession of Sir Raleigh, the chief machinist of the Fiendish Five. In order to face Raleigh, Sly and the gang travel to the Welsh Triangle, the sinister resting place of thousands of wrecked ships. Bentley discovers that Raleigh's storm machine is the cause of the bad weather and that he is using it to make ships crash and sink, allowing him to plunder the debris.

After facing the Walrus Guards protecting the entrance, Sly managed to infiltrate Raleigh's boat.


There are 20 clues in this stage, and the vault is located just after the second set of searchlights before the key. The combination to the vault is 7-9-2.

The clues have led me to believe that the code for this vault is 7-9-2.
