The composed directions (” Hold R1 + R1″ on PlayStation) reviewed like the type of suggestion where you’re intended to press two different switches, as well as the NPC– who exists entirely to justify the tutorial within the video game’s tenuous fiction– informs you something to result of “holding both of your hands up.”
Offered the general bugginess of Atomic Heart, no one would certainly condemn you for assuming the text guideline is in mistake, or for continuously trying to hold down L1 and also R1 at the very same time rather– one shoulder button for each hand. (This author is guilty as charged.).
