In this guide, we will tell you how to find the location of Polygon 6 and get inside. Read on to find out how to complete the secret area and get new weapon blueprints in Atomic Heart.
How to get to Polygon 6 in Atomic Heart
To open Polygon 6, you need to activate the camera. After that, it remains to find the entrance and get inside the secret complex. Next, we will describe in detail and show how to do this.

The metal tower with the number six is located near the water on the shore of the lake and is difficult to miss. Activate the elevator, climb to the very top of the tower, and then interact with the device (by default, the “F” key).
A map will open, on which points of interaction with video cameras will be marked. You need to select the lowest one, as noted in the screenshot. After that, you will see the entrance to Polygon 6. As soon as the interaction mark appears on the screen, activate the blue gate, and then leave the tower.

The path to the silver chest and Room #3. A dead end with a regular chest containing ammo and materials.
Further, following the first path, you will meet another fork:
The path to the surface, to the chest and Room #3. Dead end with a corpse.
Go left and climb up the stairs.
You will find yourself in the room where the entrance to the room with a silver chest is located. For the passage of Hall No. 2, in addition to consumables, you can get a drawing “Kalash is a collimator».

As a result, for the successful completion of Polygon 6, you can get:
Synthetic material x1. Superconductor x2. Microelectronics x2. Cartridges for Kalash x1. Cartridges for PM x1. Dynamo x1. Energy module x1. Drawing: Kalash – Collimator. Drawing: PM – enlarged magazine. Drawing: Electro – Confrontation.
It is important to understand that most of the loot from boxes and chests generated randomly. Therefore, some of the rewards, including weapon blueprints that drop out during the passage of Polygon 6, may be different.
