The Respirator is a specialised item needed to pass through the Yellow Zone, as without it Haydee will slowly suffocate from the gas filling the area.
Outside of the Yellow Zone, the Respirator serves no purpose and can be stored in a crate without consequence. It is worth mentioning that the Respirator and Night Visor cannot be equipped at the same time, so it is important to navigate dark areas in the Yellow Zone manually to avoid suffocation from accidentally replacing the Respirator with them.
The Respirator is found within a semi-dark area within the Red Zone, where the additional Power Node is also located. A small button puzzle is needed to open the locked gate, where all 4 lights must be activated at the same time. Upon doing so, a Slasher waiting behind the gate will attack Haydee, although it can be easily dealt with using quick enough reflexes. The Respirator can then be collected from the table in between several dead Haydee and Slasher bodies.
- The Respirator has unused maxCharge and Charger variables in the game's Items.pack files, with values 0 and Oxygen respectively; implying it once had a limited supply of oxygen to supply Haydee with to prevent her from suffocating.
