The March of the Winter Soldiers in Honkai: Star Rail – Jarilo VI Adventure Mission, within which you have to be an instructor for recruits, passing a series of tests at different levels of difficulty. You will have to solve puzzles and fight dangerous opponents. In this article, we'll show you how to unlock the quest and complete it with rewards and achievements.
How to unlock March of the Winter Soldiers
In order to access the quest, two conditions must be met:
- Your Mastery level must be 24 or higher;
< li>You need to complete the Yarilo VI story mission “Paths to the Past Long Closed”.
Once this happens, answer the message asking Dunn to become the lead instructor in the military exercises he wants organize.
The quest will start after you find out about the exercise. To do this, use the teleport “Energy Center” in the restricted area of the Silvermane Guards and ask Dann. After that, talk to the Adjutant, the captain's assistant robot, who will offer you to pass three tests.
The March of the Winter Soldiers 1
To complete the first challenge and receive all possible rewards, you must :
- finish the duel in 8 cycles;
- win without losing more than 2 teammates;
- join the battle without imposing the status of “Alert” on soldiers more than 2 times.
The reward of the test will be 60 pieces of star jade, “Eagle's Beaked Helm” – 4* relic, 8000 credits, 6 adventure logs and 6 condensed ethers.
Who should be on the team< /h3>
Possible opponents in this challenge will be soldiers with a vulnerability to physical, ice and quantum damage, so we recommend putting characters with these elements in the squad, for example, Zele (5*), Yanqing (5*), Dan Heng (4*). If they don't exist yet, then a good alternative to break through would be the Physical Damage Trailblazer, Qing Que, Sampo, and/or Sushan.

Armor (Silver Wolf)
In the first phase, “On the Lookout” will be active – a status that allows enemies who spot you to immediately attack at the beginning of the battle. If this effect is avoided, the enemy will take physical damage.
Start of the test
According to the Adjutant, there are two ways to pass the test: through and through cunning. The latter is suitable for those who want to pick up all the available rewards, while the former will be much easier in terms of passing.
First, we need to restore the broken automaton so that it distracts the attention of the soldiers and clears the way for us to the chest of the idiot. To do this, you need to solve the puzzle with magnetic modules (the screenshot shows the position in which you need to click on the selected element – this will restore the circuit).
Once the soldiers move to the right, sprint towards the remaining soldier to attack from behind. It is located to your left and blocks the way to the chest of the klutz.
The Ignorant's Chest
Solving this riddle will lead you to the gate. How to solve the puzzle – see below. After the task is completed, you can safely return to the main zone to meet with the boss.
Note that one of the additional conditions requires you to fight three squads without attracting attention ( “Watch out”). Seele's ability doesn't count, so wait for the soldiers to turn away and quickly run through the gate.
How to beat Dann
The boss in the first test will be Dunn himself and two soldiers. As a skill, he uses the call of new soldiers, and he can also suddenly counterattack, so if the defense and the amount of HP allow, it is better to focus directly on him first, and then deal with his assistants.
After defeating the boss, talk to the Adjutant to collect your rewards.
March of the Winter Soldiers 2
In the second trial, we will face the Commander and automaton minions. Starting the quest is exactly the same as in the first challenge: talk to the Adjutant. The difference will be only in additional tasks to achieve maximum rewards.
- complete the battle in 14 cycles;
- win with a loss of no more than 2- x allies;
- Alert can only be obtained 3 times.
In this round, we will encounter opponents with vulnerabilities to ice, physical, fire, quantum and electrical damage, so when composing a squad, you should focus on these elements.
The reward for the trial will be slightly higher: 60 pieces of star jade, “Eagle Sash” – 4* relic, 7 adventure logs, 7 condensed ethers and 10,000 credits.
Start of the test
To get there to the Commander, two controllers must be activated. Run over the bridge to the left first.
An encryption key is required to activate the controller. You will receive it after defeating the officers of the Silvermane Guards: one will be at the beginning of the stairs, the second – at the top.
After the controller is running, select the “rotate clockwise” option once and go to the second terminal.
The key for it is obtained in a similar way: there will be two groups of soldiers who need to be attacked quietly. The first is in front of the stairs, the fight is held in two rounds: in total you need to defeat eight opponents. Once you've won, restore the structural chains in the garbage can – this is necessary to divert the attention of the remaining officer at the top of the stairs so that you can attack from behind.
If this does not happen, you will meet with reinforcements before you can get to the officer. This is not as easy as it seems: a few fights before the battle with an officer can significantly weaken the squad, but before the fight, you can use a backpack and recovery food. The officer himself has a strong shield, and the damage is not weak, so you will have to tinker with him. The encryption key will be yours once you defeat it.
Start the second controller with the key and turn the bridge once again clockwise.
In the finale, you will meet with the Commander, who summons additional automatons, and two assistants. Its mechanics are similar to the automata grizzly we encountered while traveling through the open world. Unlike the previous boss, in this case it is worth focusing on small opponents: defeating them will deal additional damage to the Commander and protect us. He is susceptible to fire, ice and electric damage, but it is better to focus on the vulnerability of his assistants.
Speak with the Adjutant to receive rewards.
March of the Winter Soldiers 3
In the final challenge of the Winter March, we will face the Cheetah and the Silvermane Guard soldiers. The passage conditions remain unchanged, but the goals change again:
- completion of the battle in 20 cycles;
- victory with the loss of no more than 2 allies;
- Watch out less than 4 times.
The rewards will increase slightly again: 60 pieces of star jade, two 4* relics: Soaring Eagle Ring and Quilted Leggings of the Eagle, 12,000 credits, 8 adventure logs, 8 condensed ethers.
The peculiarity of this round is that we are offered two alternative ways of passing: the battle with the Cheetah or the victory over 40 guards. In any case, it is worth taking a character with an ice/electric/quantum element to break through into the squad. However, most of the enemies are vulnerable to physical damage, so we recommend taking a character of the appropriate element.
How to defeat 40 guards
The mini-map is very helpful in this round: it shows which Soldiers are looking in the direction. We need it in case we decide to neutralize 40 guards.
It's simple: follow the enemies on the mini-map and attack them from behind. Do not be afraid of the damage inflicted: there are quite a few random destructible items scattered around the location that restore health and vehicle points. Avoiding the eyes of the soldiers is also easy, so if you want to simplify the passage and are willing to spend more time on it, then this option is for you. Shields are removed from opponents quite easily, so an extra damage dealer in a pack will not hurt a support instead.
You will also come across chests of the Klut. You need to interact with them twice: the first screen shows how to get to the soldiers in front, the second (after the reset) shows how to neutralize the opponents on the right. The guards in the front need to be attacked as quickly as possible, since the enemies on the right have their backs to us, making it easier to hit them stealthily.
You can also complete the puzzle with restoring structural circuits to distract the soldiers above.
However, there is another unit to the right, defeating which will be enough to complete the mission.
< p> As a nice bonus, you can get the achievement “Take the bull by the horns”. It is awarded by defeating the Lieutenant of the Silvermane Guard without defeating the Silvermane Guard.
How to defeat the Cheetah
If you want to face the Cheetah, then at the very beginning, you need to turn left, and then, after the soldier turns away, right to fight with the enemy squad.
After defeating him, you will approach the gate.
They need to be tapped three times. Be persistent – at first they won't want to open you, so persevere, and then you will go into battle directly with the Cheetah and a couple of lieutenants – each of them summons additional guards. How to better interact with him, you can read here.
We advise you not to attack him with ice damage: he is the least susceptible to it. In addition, another ability of the Cheetah is an additional shielding – opponents become invulnerable until they are damaged by the element of penetration. So attention should be paid first of all to the removal of the shield. Do not forget about ordinary mobs: the damage from them, albeit small, but their number is quite large, which unpleasantly affects the team's HP.
After successfully defeating the Cheetah or defeating 40 soldiers, talk to the Commander and collect the well-deserved rewards. This completes the March of the Winter Soldiers mission.
