Atomic Heart Testing Ground Guide

By Zak Wasilowski |


Struggling with the Atomic Heart Testing Grounds? No need to worry! We’ve created an Atomic Heart Testing Ground guide, covering each Testing Ground, and detailing how you can complete them.

Atomic Heart is a brand new action RPG set in a strange world, where a fictional 1955 USSR has had an upgrade. The game focuses on the AI assistants, known as the Kollektiv. Due to a technological nightmare, the robots begin attacking Humans, and you’re tasked with stopping them.

For more information about the game, check out the official Atomic Heart website. If you’re looking for more guides, check out our Atomic Heart Enemies guide, Atomic Heart VSync guide, and our Atomic Heart weapons guide.
