New Game+ Mode: A Closer Look

In the New Game+ Mode, Atomic Heart’s enemies gain new abilities, such as being immune to certain player attacks or possessing new attack effects. Each enemy type in this game mode also acquires a unique color aura. This aura serves as an indicator of the enemy’s newfound ability, offering a dynamic twist to gameplay.

For instance, the purple aura indicates the ‘Master of the Elements’ ability, providing immunity to glove abilities and cartridge guns. This ability affects the VOV-A6 Lab Tech, Mutant, and ARU-31/6 Rotorobot enemy types. On the other hand, enemies showcasing a red aura possess the ‘Daredevil’ ability, which accelerates their attacks and movements. This effect influences the VOV-A6 Lab Tech, ARU-31/6 Rotorobot, MFU-68 Laborer, and RAF-9 Engineer (Rafik) enemy types.

The yellow aura signifies the ‘Body armor’ ability, providing immunity to firearms, affecting the LUC-1 Owl, GMC-69 Vatrushka, DOC, and MFU-68/CP Duck enemy types. The green aura indicates the ‘Athlete’ ability, where all enemy attacks can knock players to the ground, influencing the VOV-A6 Lab Tech, Mutant, MFU-68 Laborer, and RAF-9 Engineer (Rafik) enemy types.

The ‘Kamikaze’ ability, symbolized by an orange aura, enables enemies to explode upon nearing players, affecting the VOV-A6 Lab Tech, Mutant, ARU-31/6 Rotorobot, and MFU-68 Laborer enemy types. A turquoise aura represents the ‘Lightning rod’ ability, where enemy attacks can drain players’ energy, affecting the VOV-A6 Lab Tech, Mutant, MFU-68 Laborer, and RAF-9 Engineer (Rafik) enemy types. Lastly, the blue aura stands for the ‘Translocator’ ability, which allows enemies to cover a large distance abruptly when approaching players, influencing the VOV-A6 Lab Tech, Mutant, and MFU-68 Laborer enemy types.
