Eureka! We're in the engine room! My analysis tells me that if you trace the spinning crankshaft all the way back to its source, you'll find Raleigh's treasure key and sabotage his machine while you're at it.

"Into the Machine" was a job in Tide of Terror of Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus.


After sneaking his way onto Raleigh's boat, Sly enters the engine room of the boat. Here Sly comes across an open furnace door that is shooting out flames in his path. He must use his cane to slam it shut.

As Sly presses on, Bentley informs him that if he can follow the spinning crankshaft back to its source, he will find Raleigh's treasure key and sabotage his machine in the process. Sly ventures through the engine room and comes across a giant spinning crankshaft. He must find a way to stop its rotation, that way he can go through the shaft and collect the key.


There are 30 clues in this area, and the vault is located just opposite of the spinning crankshaft. The combination to the vault is 2-2-7.

I can't believe I pieced this one together. Try 2-2-7.

  • During the game's development, this level featured a portion that had giant spinning machine parts. While these machine parts didn't make it into the final release, they can be seen near the end of the level through a grate in the wall.
