In our walkthrough guide about the Hedge Lab of Grounded, we will show you how to get there, how to get the password, which dangers you have to look out for, and what creatures you will encounter.
Before our walkthrough starts, you should arm yourself sufficiently since you will encounter a lot of spiders and robots, which you have to defeat. You should also have enough supplies of food and drink packed.
Our walkthrough is divided into the following sections:
- The starting point: Field Station
- The first lab
- The second lab
- The main lab
- Finding password parts
- Unlock the room
The starting point
For us to explain the way as well as possible and for you to be able to collect everything, you have to go to the starting point, which we have drawn for you in the picture below.
It is the field station next to the house, which can be seen on the map at the bottom right:
The way to the first laboratory of the Hedge Laboratory
When you have collected everything within the field station, the way to the first stop of this walkthrough begins; the first lab of the hedge lab.
Go out of the field station and choose the way directly to your left (if you are standing in front of it and looking right at the field station (it is to your right). Follow this branch. At the first fork, go straight out and follow this branch until it becomes thinner. At the next fork, go right onto the first thick branch under the thinner branch.
Follow this branch straight ahead until you reach some mushrooms, on which you jump up. Follow the branch that continues straight ahead, past the juice box. Along the way, you’ll pass a brown leaf with a sap drop that you can drink. Continue to the zip line and use it until you are above the overgrown branch where you jump off.
Inside, two TAYZ.Ts are waiting for you, which you can destroy for 100 Raw Science each. Follow the corridor to the end, where you will come to a door through which you go. In the room of the first lab, you can now find 100 Raw Science, an Overlook note, two fiber bandages, and a granola bar.
Now return to the front door.
The way to the second laboratory of the hedge laboratory
Go to the overgrown branch you jumped down before, and continue walking until the end of the zip line you used. Choose the left branch and follow it until you reach a small fork. The fork, a thin branch, goes down to the right of the branch and leads to a thick branch, on which you walk to the right until it ends. Now go left over another thick branch and continue over a small branch, towards one that is big again.
From here, you can already see the second lab, which you can now enter. In the second lab, you will find 100 Raw Science, two granola bars, water, an outpost note, and the first SCA.B the “Bugjuice”.
Once you have collected everything, you can leave the second lab.
The third laboratory of the Hedge Laboratory in Grounded
After stepping out of the lab, turn directly to the right and onto the branch that runs right by the building until mushrooms appear on the left side. Jump over the mushrooms, which will lead you to a zip line that you follow to the end. At the end of the Zip Line, turn right and follow the branch until you reach the Frisbee, cross it, and you will find another SCA.B part “Supreme”.
Climb onto the branch in the picture and walk in the direction we marked for you.
The main laboratory of the Hedge Lab
At the end of the third lab, there is a back door, which you go through. Turn directly left after taking one step out of the lab, and you will find a dandelion tuft that you can equip as a parachute. Follow this branch further up and jump over the mushrooms. Take the branch over the first large green leaf on your right, from which you will come to a smaller branch. Now you are already able to see the big hedge lab.
Follow the branch up to another zip line and use it to reach the Hedge Lab Breach. In the middle of the lab is a PC where you can find a lab note. On the wall behind the PC is the word “Password” written on the wall. You will need the password after you turn on the PC. Entering the password will open the door to the secured room where you will receive the Hedge BURG.L chip.
Finding the password: Part 1
Go through the passage on your right at the back of the Breach and save your game since you will immediately encounter several smaller spiders and the spider Orb Weaver Jr. that you have to defeat.
Once you defeat all spiders, you can secure the part of the password, that is, the paper with the 58 and two fiber bandages, but you can also access a workbench and a resource analyzer there.
Finding the password: Part 2
Since the door next to the first password snippet is locked, you’ll have to go up the stairs in the middle of the room and follow the upcoming corridor. Again, we recommend you to save once more, as you will have to fight again—your opponents here: two TAYZ.Ts. Since the door on the left is locked, follow the passage straight ahead and choose the left path at the fork.
At the end of this path, three more TAYZ.Ts are awaiting you, which you have to defeat. Once you have defeated them, you can collect the 100 Raw Science and berry chunk. After you have collected everything, use the zip line in this room. There will be a branch, which leads to you falling onto another branch. Moving forward, you can place yourself under the zip line and look up. Now you can grab the Zip line and use it until the end.
The Zip Line let you end up in a room where you’ll find the second password part. But be careful! There’s a hole in the middle of the room, that you don’t want to fall through before you have picked up the password. Pick it up and then drop yourself down through the hole.
Finding the password: Part 3
Jump from the mushroom you landed on up to the branch next to it and go in the direction that leads down. You will see another lab entrance, to which you go. Now enter the lab.
Follow the corridor until you reach a fork, where you enter the corridor diagonally on the left in front of you, and follow it.
You end up in a storage room where you can loot everything you want. Now you can make your way down with the zip line. You must jump down above the yellow light onto a part of the lab building to get inside the lab through the hatch. Another password part and more spiders are waiting for you down there. You will also find an Ominent Log 03 Tape on the table, and you can loot granola bars and fiber bandages.
Finding the password: Part 4
If you follow the corridor out of the room, it will lead you through the previously closed door back to the room where you fought against the spider Orb Weaver Jr.
Take the left passage, the one in the middle before, and loot outside at the opening from which you see two zip lines. Drop out of the opening onto the thin branch below and turn around, so that you can see the following building:
In this room, another Orb Weaver Jr. spider is waiting for you, but you can try to exterminate it with a bow before you get over with the zip line. You can also use the zip line directly and fight it one-on-one.
Once you have defeated the spider, you can collect the last password piece.
Open the locked room
Go through the door, which is spun in, and run back to the room with the terminal where you first entered the lab (Hedge Lab Breach). Place yourself in front of the terminal and enter the password. The door behind you will open, which allows you to pass through. In this room, you will find:
- Rotten Gas Mask
- Control Room Note
- Hedge BURG.L Chip
The only thing left is to activate the switch on your left by pulling the lever down.
Now you have unlocked and collected everything.
