If you manage to pass those guards inside, and the entire labyrinth of locked doors, you will reach the door of the vaults that are as heavy as 22 tons! The door has a password protection. The problem? Everyone knows only one part of the combination, and you will have to find them all. Once inside, you will have to break into smaller safes and then only be able to take 5,000 tons of gold stored there.
