However, to simplify things we’ve broken it down into the following 10 steps:

  1. Remove the body from the freezer – Pick from one of the three dead bodies in the freezer. Keep in mind that the position can change from shift to shift.
  2. Inspect the body for marks – Similar to the tutorial except you must alter the top entry for each additional body you inspect.
  3. Wire jaw shut and input eye caps – Next, close the wired jaw with a needle injector and set the needles. Then insert eye caps to keep the eyes closed. Both the caps and the needle injector are in the cabinet next to the desk.
  4. Mix embalming fluid in pump Mix Glutaraldehyde, Methanol, Humectant, Formaldehyde, and Reagent into a pump. They are spread out in various closets and shelves around the embalming room.
  5. Make an incision with the scalpel – Taking a scalpel from the same cabinet as the eye caps, make an incision in the carotid artery and the jugular vein.
  6. Connect the embalming pump and let the body drain – Grab forceps from the same cabinet and tubing from underneath the moisturizing wipes. Use the forceps to clamp the tubing to both veins and attach the embalming pump. Then engage the pump and allow the body to drain, like in the tutorial.
  7. Turn off the pump – Remove the tubes, turn off the embalming pump and then close the incision. As shown in the tutorial.
  8. Insert a trocar into the abdominal cavity – Fill an empty IV reservoir bag with cavity fluid and insert a trocar into the abdominal cavity. The empty IV reservoir bag is in the same cabinet as the glutaraldehyde. While the trocar is in the same cabinet as the eye caps.
  9. Pour tank cleaner into the embalming pump – Mix cleaners from the bathroom closet to create tank cleaner. Then pour the tank cleaner into the embalming pump. As shown in the tutorial.
  10. Apply moisturizer and return the body – Finally, apply moisturizer to the face and then return the body to the freezer. The moisturizer can be found next to the humectant that’s sitting on the counter.
