Atomic Heart is a thrilling FPS RPG loaded with action, shooting, and slashing. But sometimes you get a breather from all the intense fighting. This comes courtesy of puzzles. If you want to move on in some areas, you must put your brain to the test. So, we will show you how to solve the Ballerina Puzzle in Atomic Heart so you can dive back into the action.
How to Solve the Ballerina Puzzle in Atomic Heart
In Atomic Heart, you face mechanical enemies as much as biological ones in this utopian fantasy. The robots aren’t just there to shoot at though. Instead, you will discover you have to manipulate them with puzzles.
This is shown when you have to solve the robot Ballerina Puzzle in Atomic Heart. It pops up during the “Art is Sacrifice” quest as you search for Petrov, and it is something that can stump many players. In it, you must use the ballerinas to recreate how the personnel died.
There are not many hints as to how to set them up though. To make things easier on you, we’ll tell you each of the correct positions so you can solve the Ballerina Puzzle and move on in Atomic Heart:
- First Ballerina: Croisée in the fifth position, arms in the third position.
- Second Ballerina: Relevé in the fifth position. Effacé. Arms upright and loose in allongé.
- Third Ballerina: Attitude.
- Fourth Ballerina: A la seconde, arms free.
To solve the Ballerina Puzzle in Atomic Heart, you must remember to not select “Enough for now” response when it pops up until you’re done. Once you place the final ballerina in her correct pose, the doors will open and you can continue on with the quest.
Although there is no indication of how the ballerinas should pose in the beginning, there is a pattern you can witness once you move them. When in the correct position, pay attention to the shadow of the ballerina. Either her arm, her leg (or in the case of the final one, both) will touch the dead personnel.
And that is how you solve the Ballerina Puzzle. Good luck with the rest of your journey.
Atomic Heart is available on PC, PS5 and PS4 systems, and Xbox One and Series consoles.
