To obtain the Red Talon, there are a few prerequisites the player must do. The player must have a Brenner Head, a Tesla Gun, and the player must begin the Left Hand of God step. When Richter and his blimp are in the map, the two power switches used to open the Salt Mine Tunnels can once again be activated. Once both are turned, a new switch will appear to the right of the Salt Mine Tunnels door in the Command Room. The player must turn this, which will reveal a piece of machinery. The player must use the Tesla Gun and zap the machine, which will disable the power in the bunker.
The player must now use a Brenner Head to shine its light on the two safes in the entryways to both the Morgue and Laboratory. Once both are shined and the order of the numbers on the keypad on the safes change, the player can begin changing the five numbers so that all five show a purple fingerprint on them. When a safe is opened, it will reveal a piece of a key of sorts. Once both are collected, the player can go down into the Emperor's Chamber and put the pieces below the massive statue in the room, which will reveal the Red Talon for the player to obtain.
