You will want to know how to gain entry to Atomic Heart Testing Ground, as once you enter the open world portion of the game, you are allowed to access side areas to earn special upgrades for your weapons.

Atomic Heart is the debut game from developer Mundfish, presenting an FPS action RPG in a Soviet retro-future world with plenty of robots to battle. With some of the tough robots you will face on your journey, it may be worth making sure your weapons are as strong as possible.

So, if you want to know how to enter Atomic Heart Testing Grounds One, we've got you covered.

Atomic Heart Testing Grounds One (or Polygon 1) is the first of the Testing Grounds you will likely come across once you enter the open world portion of the game several hours in. It's a short dungeon that contains some simple magnet puzzles where you can raise platforms to jump across and grab the upgrades you'll want.

However, entering this place can be confusing at first, as once you approach the zone marked on the map, you'll just find a circular building with a locked door that has no obvious way of being opened.

The solution is rather simple though, as you just need to use your scanner on one of the nearby cameras to track the local terminal, which is on a raised platform a few seconds away.

If you approach the platform and climb up the stairs, you can interact with the terminal, allowing you to access the cameras around the area. Choose the camera we have highlighted above, and you will be able to see the Testing Grounds One building and a button prompt to open the locked door.

Once you have opened the door, just head toward the building, and you can enter the lift and head down to the testing stage itself.

That's all for our walkthrough of how to enter Atomic Heart Testing Grounds One, and now you know how to access the building to get some useful weapon upgrades.
