In Atomic Heart Cheat sheet for SDK-2 Shuttlecock is one of the main tasks in which many players had problems getting codes and opening village gates due to bugs. In this guide, we will tell you how to get around these errors on the licensed and pre-release versions of the game. The latter was leaked a few days before the official release.
The passage of the task “Cheat sheet for SDK-2 “Shuttlecock””
Get the codes from the Volan
This mission begins after completing the tasks “A Breath of Fresh Air” and “House in the Village”, in which you will get to Baba Zina. Watch a short cut-scene and talk to the granny, who will tell you about the codes from Volan. Turn around, go to the table with the red tablecloth and take the quest item from it. You will also receive the Dominator weapon blueprint.
Note: You won't be able to get codes on the “pirate” version – you will only be given a diagram weapons. This is where the main mistake in the mission lies, since it stops all its other tasks. Keep moving forward with the story and we'll show you how to solve this problem.
Note: A similar bug may also occur on a license. However, it will only need to update the game to the latest version, as the developers have already fixed this error.
Taking the codes, talk to granny again. You can interact with Eleanor before doing this to create a new cannon (if you have enough materials).
However, we strongly advise you not to do this on an unlicensed version of the game, since in most cases you simply will not be able to pick it up weapon after it has been crafted, which will force you to look for another red assault rifle (located to the right of the Lesnaya station, in a bunker with a red roof; see screenshots below), which means you will waste resources.
Open the gates of the village with the shuttlecock
After talking with Baba Zina, exit the house, turn the camera to the left and you will see a tower in the distance, which you will need to climb. Start walking towards it along the path leading down. Go through the open gate, approach the tower and stand on the red platform to start climbing up.
When you get up, you will see a white capsule in front of you. Interact with her by pressing the “F” key, and then select the camera indicated on the map and open the gate. After that, you can exit the security terminal. The task will end and you will be able to start the Morning Express quest, in which you will have to get to the Lesnaya station.
How to fix the shuttlecock and gate bug
If you are playing the “pirate” version, then you simply will not be able to interact with the “Shuttlecock”, since you will not have the necessary codes. How to be in this case? You will have to use the developer console. Press the “Backspace” key (arrow pointing to the left), select the “Quests” category and click on the “Complete Quests” label.
The mission will end and you will receive the next quest. Follow the marker to the closed gate. Get close to them, and then open the debug console again, but now just click once or twice on the inscription “Teleport Forward”. This will move you slightly forward and out of the closed grid.
Next, you can continue the passage of the story. Get into the red car in front and move towards the Lesnaya station.
