From time to time, you should also expect different puzzles that will unlock doors and secret passages. But if you are not good at solving puzzles, you don’t have to worry because that is not the only way to get through places.

You can also take the train, cars, or any vehicle that you can find.



The game is actually pretty complex, with a campaign mode that’s available in three levels of difficulty: Easy, Normal, and Hard.

You can also get two different endings which vary depending on the choices you made during your playthrough.

Campaign 1

During your campaign, you play as Major Sergel Nechaev, also known as P-3, an experienced solder with a Power Glove and AI which will help you solve puzzles and teach you how to get away with things.

Besides your power Glove, you will also have your own weapons. In fact, there are 12 different base weapons that you can eventually upgrade by crafting components.

The weapons that we currently have are the Railgun, Fat Boy, Dominator, Kalash, Electro, Fox, KS-23, MP, Pashtet, Snowball, Swede, and Zvezdochka.

Each of these weapons has different uses, so it is important to familiarize which weapon is best for fighting who.

You can also increase the stats of each gun by collecting components that you can randomly find around the world.

Once you have enough resources, you can craft some attachments that you can add to your weapon to make it more effective.



Combat in Atomic Hearts is actually pretty dynamic and complicated as you have to be good at mixing the use of both melee and a gun.

Here, you will encounter two types of enemies: robots and mutants.

Robots are more vulnerable if you use either electricity or ice. On the other hand, mutants are weak against fire.

It’s important to familiarize this distinction so you can take them out easily in the open.

The Power Glove

Among all the weapons, the best thing that you will have since the beginning would be your Power Glove. In fact, there are lots of things that you can do with it.

It’s capable of making shields and firing different elements, and you can even use it to control things around you. You can vacuum things or levitate and slam enemies on the ground.

Just like your weapon, you can also upgrade your Power Gloves skills using the Neuro Polymer.
