How to Open the First Locked Door in Amnesia: The Bunker

Amnesia: The Bunker door

Amnesia: The Bunker features a few puzzles but the easiest one to get stuck on is perhaps opening the first locked bunker door. Here’s how to deal with that.

The trench section of Amnesia: The Bunker does give you a few pointers as to how the game works. But if you’re not careful it can lead you down the wrong path, especially when it comes to opening that first locked door. Here’s how to open that locked door in Amnesia: The Bunker.

To open the locked door in Amnesia: The Bunker, you need to pick up a brick from near the dead prisoner and throw it at the lock. Would this work in real life? We have our doubts but since Mythbusters has finished we may never know.

However, you have to make sure you’re at the right door. There’s another door, without a lock, that looks like it should happily open up if you throw a brick at it. We know, we spent way too long trying to break it. How long? Let’s just we were at it for a good five minutes. In our defence, the tutorial had us breaking a similar-looking door. It’s not our fault. Honest.

Instead, you have to find the other door, the one with a lock near the top. Throw the brick at the lock and it will break, opening the door. Just be prepared to run, that’s all we’re saying.

He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
