Atomic Heart is a thrilling sci-fi shooter set in an alternate Soviet Union. In A Glass, Darkly mission, players must pass through four magnetic rooms and solve four relay puzzles in the basement in order to fix the mirror mechanism and open the way to the VDNH. This guide will guide you through the process step by step.
Step 1: Jump down the tunnel and go through the four magnetic rooms
The first step is to jump down the tunnel to the left of the gate. Here you will encounter four magnetic rooms. They are the main problem of the mission and the only way to advance. To cross the rooms, you must use the Shok ability to move containers across the ground.
Each room has its own unique set of obstacles, and they become increasingly difficult. However, they all obey the same basic logic. You must use the Shok ability to raise and lower containers to get to the other side. The trick is to use non-magnetic areas such as walls and ladders.
To move the containers, use movable clusters of electromagnets. These are battery-like objects on the ceiling with positive and negative (red and blue) poles. When you use the EMP on these clusters, the containers will move accordingly.
Step 2: Solve the four relay puzzles in the basement
After passing through the four magnetic rooms, you will find yourself in the basement. Here you will find four doors without locks. To open them, you need to solve the relay puzzles on the ground or in the walls.
The puzzles are quite simple. All you have to do is click on the right circles in the right order. Here are the solutions to all four puzzles:
- Puzzle #1: Middle circle top, middle circle bottom, middle circle bottom, left circle bottom, left circle top.
- Puzzle #2: Right upper circle, right lower circle.
- Puzzle #3: Upper third circle (left), lower second circle (left), upper right circle.
- Relay #4: Upper leftmost circle, upper third circle (left), upper leftmost circle.
Step 3: Take the exit door and interact with the gate lock
After you solve the four relay puzzles, exit through the exit door to the surface and interact with the gate lock. This will activate the mirror mechanism and open the way to the VDNH.
Congratulations! You have successfully repaired the mirror mechanism in the A Glass, Darkly mission Atomic Heart. You are now free to explore the wonders of VDNH. Good Luck!
