During the Delivering Devils mission, you’ll need to speak with a few key characters to progress the story and eventually get the key. First, head to the Trade Authority and ask about Percival. From there, make your way to the Sixth Circle Bar where you’ll come across the miners. Speak with Lou, the bartender, and he will ask you a few questions. Once you have successfully answered all of them, Lou will reveal that Percival has some debt to clear with the Trade Authority. You’ll have three options to help Percival out:

  1. Pay off Percival’s debt yourself (costs a hefty 21,867 credits!)
  2. Sneak into the Trade Authority and change the debt amount using a key you pickpocket from Oktai or your lockpicking skills. Change the debt amount to 500 or 1000 credits on the computer using the Account Override Tool.
  3. Kill the Spacer Leader in the Deep Mines for Cambridge and clear Percival’s debt that way.

He’ll be grateful for your help and reward you with the Drill Waste Room Access Key, along with 500 credits and some extra information about Percival’s whereabouts in Red Devils HQ. He will also tell you the passcode which is required to access the area where Percival is hidden.
