Atomic Heart Testing Grounds and Polygons
Welcome to our Atomic Heart Testing Grounds and Polygons guide. The guide will assist you on how to enter the individual facilities.
What are Polygons / Testing Grounds
Testing Grounds(a.k.a. Polygons) are dungeons scattered around the Main World which usually contains a set of challenges (mostly puzzles) and unique rewards.
Testing Grounds include unique rewards in the form of Weapon Upgrade Blueprints.
There are 8 dungeons in total, each one includes 3 reward chests(Lootyagins) coloured Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Note: Gold is always last and usually by an exit.
Note: Lootyagins emit a jingle which makes them easier to find.
How do I enter a Testing Ground
Most testing grounds have their entrance hidden. This entrance has to be unlocked via a Dandelion(Camera).
Dandelions can be accessed through a corresponding terminal which can be seen using your scanner.
Note: Dandelions are disabled whenever a corresponding Hawk drone is down.
The world is split into ecosystems. Each ecosystem is dependent on a HAWK Relay.
A HAWK Relay enables robotics to function which includes Dandelions, Enemies and Pchelas.
Dandelions are connected to a Terminal, accessing a Terminal lets you look through its connected Dandelions which can be used to open Testing Grounds using the ‘interact’ key ([F] by default).
To view a Dandelions Terminal use your scanner, as it will show a line leading to a Terminal.
Note: If a Dandelion is disabled, it cannot be accessed until repaired by a Pchela.
Note: You can temporarily disable a HAWK Relay using a special terminal, this disables all robotics in the area including Dandelions. This lasts for quite a while.

There is a building with a blue roof. The door can be opened with a Dandelion. Then take the elevator.

- ElectroElectromagnetic Emitter
- SnowballBattering Blow
This entrance is hidden underground, through a semi-cylindrical-whatever-the-you-call-it thing by the water, you can’t miss it.
The big door can be unlocked with a dandelion, the terminal is on the other side of the lake on top of a tower.

- KalashElectromagnetic Polarizer
- PashetErgonomic Handle
When you first enter this area Dandelions will be disabled, how come? Well turns out the HAWK Relay has been hit by Morgana Q and is currently Rooted, sadge.
To free the relay, we’ll need to go to the sewer, there is an entrance close to the safe room shack where you can drop down. Beware of the infected, Raspberry Juice Cartridge should help you deal with them.
You should arrive at a room with a few boilers, to your right is a door leading to a room full of hot energy balls… see where this is going… Crispy Critters, burn the ♥♥♥♥ out of it.
After committing arson the relay should be in the sky again, great. Now you just need to access a terminal sitting next to an untextured robot and we’re in.
Fun Fact: It is using the default Unreal Engine 4 texture.
What you’re looking for is a statue of Lenin. It has a switch which… oh… it opens an elevator behind it… I thought it would like move or something… little underwhelming.

To enter you’ll need to activate 3… things… via Dandelions through 3 separate terminals. Once activated an elevator will open inside the building.
Atomic Heart Polygon 10
- KalashExtended Magazine
- Fat BoyTrap Mine
- DominatorHigh-Intensity Modulators
The entrance is similar to the intro to Vavilov. You can use a dandelion on a farm building thing which reveals a hidden elevator.
Atomic Heart Testing Ground 2
How to Enter
It should be another blue roofed building (similar to Ground 1). It should open normally with a dandelion.
(I will have to double check if this is right)
Atomic Heart Testing Ground 11
How to Enter
To enter Testing Ground 11 you’ll need a keycard… or well a cookie, which is found in the walled of facility North-East (Next to the Hawk Drone).
Atomic Heart Testing Ground 12
The entrance is in a cliff by the beach
