In Atomic Heart, the Clouded Mirror is a story quest that requires you to solve several disc and mirror puzzles, as well as find the graphic code from the door. If you have any difficulties with solving riddles or finding a password, then study our guide.
How to get inside VDNKh
Having dealt with the boss of the Hedgehog as part of the mission “What the coming day has in store for us”, head to the entrance to the Exhibition. Approaching the door, you will find that it is locked, so you will have to open it first. This can be done using a special mirror system, which should concentrate the light from the Sun on the model of the planetary system installed above the passage.
Approach the left device, which has the letter “U” written on it, and use the glove to start pulling it back. As a result, the first group of mirrors will appear. Now approach the right gear. Push it as far as you can and then run to the wall and jump into the hole where the second group of mirrors should be.

Magnetic Coils Puzzle
After jumping down, enter the passage ahead. Walk along the corridor to the grate, and then turn left and enter the room with electromagnetic coils. Save, go a little further, raise the camera up and hit the red magnets with the Shock ability. As a result, you will raise the platforms on the right, along which you can reach the door.
Go down the stairs and go to another spacious area. Here you will need to get to the opposite side by changing the polarity of the magnets. First of all, jump down to the red row below. Then electrocute the ceiling to go upstairs. Now jump to the metal pad ahead.
Hit the ceiling again with Shock (there should be blue coils). Jump onto the blue platform that appears in front of you. From it, climb over to the red platform on the right. Then hit the ceiling with lightning to go upstairs. Walk forward a little and jump down to the entrance.
Save and go right. Here you will be attacked by two androids, so be careful. Interact with the piston mechanism on the door and play a small mini-game – you need to close the valves in time by clicking on the LMB. Before following the marker, turn right to collect the contents of the chest.
First disc and laser puzzle
Approach the door. It will be locked and you will not find any lock on it. Walk back a bit and use the scan to see the device on the floor. Approach the red circles and interact with them for a puzzle to appear. To solve it, you will need to properly adjust the blue flow by rotating the disks.
Turn the bottom left dial first, then the top left dial. The correct option is shown in the screenshots below. As a result, the door ahead will open. Go inside and you will find yourself in the next room with coils and pads.
A riddle with magnetic coils and lasers
Drop down to the blue platform on the right side and Shock the ceiling to get up. Next, jump to the red area on the left and electrocute the coils at the top again (they should be red).
Climb to the blue area to the left and in front, sandwiched between two blocks and Shock the ceiling. Walk back a bit and drop down to the second blue platform on the right. Turn around and you will see another puzzle with lasers and disks. To solve it, you must first rotate the upper right circle once, and then the lower right circle once (the correct option is shown in the pictures below).
Now return to the blue platform sandwiched between the blocks and go to its edge, and you will see a red row below – get down on it, and then, as usual, hit the coils with Shock. You will climb up and be able to finally reach the door.
The riddle with magnets in the third hall
Go to the corridor and save. Enter the next hall with platforms and coils. Drop down to the very bottom and run to the far right corner. Climb onto the boxes near the wall and climb onto the blue area ahead. Electrocute the blue coils directly above you to get up and run forward.
Turn left, jump to the red area and hit the ceiling with Shock, and then get down to the metal platform with the door open. Get inside and save. Walk forward down the corridor to the next closed door.
The second riddle with discs and lasers
To the right of the door on the wall you will find more red circles. Interact with them to make rays appear. Rotate the discs as shown in the screenshot below to solve this puzzle. The door will open and you can move on.
The puzzle with magnets in the fourth hall
Drop down to the very bottom and stand on the blue platform behind the bars. Lift the camera up and shock the blue coils. Once up, go to the metal platform on the left and Shock the red coils on the ceiling. Turn right and jump onto the blue lane ahead.
Then go ahead and drop down to the metal platform a little ahead and to the right. Shock the blue coils on the ceiling, removing the barrier on the side. Now you can jump up to the stairs near the wall. Climb up it and jump onto the narrow fence ahead.
Now climb onto the blue platform and enter the door. Save and go forward. You will find new red circles on the floor.
Third riddle with discs and lasers
Interact with the circles to make lasers appear. You only need to rotate one circle at the bottom and left to solve the puzzle. The correct option is shown in the screenshots below.
Go through the opened door. Jump down and you will rise to the surface along with the mirror. Now you can go inside the exhibition. Approach the android girl lying on the table and interact with her. As a result, the task “The Clouded Mirror” will come to an end.
A new mission called “Hands Off!” will start! , in which you will need to help Tereshkova find her upper limbs.
