If you’re looking for Cult Stashes in Alan Wake 2, you’ve come to the right place. These containers are filled with ammo, health items, and batteries, so it’s worth your time working out how to get into them so you can stockpile as many items as you can.
Most of these containers are secured with a combination padlock and you’ll need to figure out the correct numbers by the clue left on the note on the lid. Once you work it out and get inside to the goodies, you’ll usually get a sinister-sounding note too, just in case you were starting to relax. Still, if you’re curious and want to know where to find a Cult Stash, as well as how to solve them, here are the ones I’ve found so far.

The answer is 658.Right next to the murder site, just to the south. The combination on this padlock has symbols instead of numbers. Head into the trailer home behind the stash.
