Atomic Heart: Is the scanner tutorial broken?
Atomic Heart’s first hurdle is a tutorial. Whatever struggles you’re having while learning how to use the scanner, know that it’s not a bug (probably).
You’d be forgiven for getting stumped right at the start of this first-person shooter, out now for PlayStation, Xbox, and Windows PC.
How to use the scanner in the Atomic Heart tutorial
To use the scanner in Atomic Heart, just double-tap R1 on PlayStation (or RB on Xbox), then keep holding R1 / RB after the second press.
The written directions (“Hold R1 + R1” on PlayStation) read like the sort of tip where you’re supposed to press two different buttons, and the NPC — who exists solely to justify the tutorial within the game’s tenuous fiction — tells you something to effect of “holding both of your hands up.”
Given the general bugginess of Atomic Heart, no one would blame you for assuming the text instruction is in error, or for repeatedly trying to hold down L1 and R1 at the same time instead — one shoulder button for each hand. (This writer is guilty as charged.)
How to find items with Atomic Heart’s scanner
Atomic Heart’s scanner works a lot like most scanners work from most games: It helps you analyze your surroundings. When scanning, objects will show up highlighted in overlays of various colors, which the game does not explain:
- Blue indicates chests, drawers, and other containers that have resources you can loot.
- Orange indicates enemies. If you hold the scanner over a specific enemy, you’ll be able to see a list of their resistances and weaknesses, plus a rundown of the loot they’ll drop when defeated. Note that using the scanner doesn’t pause time entirely; you’re still susceptible to attacks.
- White indicates objects you can interact with — save stations, elevator call buttons, that sort of thing.
- Purple indicates story-essential items. For the most part, Atomic Heart is pretty generous with its waypointing, but in some rare cases, you have to do the work yourself. For instance, during the “Made in the USSR” mission, you have to find the “voice, the symbol, and the sprout of the Motherland.” Activating the scanner will highlight the three items — a radio, a hammer, and a plant — you need to progress. They’re all in the same room.
iOS 16.4—Apple Just Gave iPhone Users 33 Reasons To Update Now – Forbes
Apple’s iOS 16.4 upgrade is finally here, along with a bunch of brilliant new iPhone features. There are also important security reasons to update to iOS 16.4, because the latest iPhone upgrade fixes 33 vulnerabilities, some of which are serious.
Apple doesn’t give much detail about what’s fixed in iOS 16.4, to give as many people the opportunity to update before attackers can get hold of the details.
The iOS 16.4 upgrade fixes two flaws in the Kernel at the heart of the iPhone operating system tracked as CVE-2023-27969 and CVE-2023-27933 that could allow an attacker to execute code. A Sandbox issue tracked as CVE-2023-28178 could allow an app to bypass Privacy preferences, according to Apple’s support page.
Other issues fixed in iOS 16.4 include two vulnerabilities in WebKit, the engine that powers the iPhone maker’s Safari browser. Overall, iOS 16.4 fixes 33 security vulnerabilities in 32 iPhone components, making it the biggest update in a while.
Reasons to update to iOS 16.4
Apple’s last iPhone update—the iOS 16.3.1 upgrade issued in February—was an emergency fix for issues already being used in attacks.
None of the flaws fixed in iOS 16.4 have been used in real life attacks yet, according to Apple, but given the amount of issues, it still makes sense to update as soon as possible.
Apple also released iOS 15.7.4 and iPadOS 15.7.4 for users of older devices.
Experts say some of the bugs fixed in iOS 16.4 could be chained together to form more effective attacks. While the iOS 16.4 security fixes aren’t particularly worrying, it is possible to chain vulnerabilities together to gain root level access to the device, says independent security researcher Sean Wright.
However, Wright concedes that this is a lot harder to do remotely. “Most of the vulnerabilities are either privacy related or require local access—for example installing a malicious app making remote exploitation a lot more difficult.”
At the same time, Kernel level vulnerabilities fixed in iOS 16.4 make Apple’s latest update important, says Wright.
While you don’t need to panic, the issues fixed in iOS 16.4 make updating to the latest iPhone software a priority. You know what to do—go to your Settings > General > Software Update and upgrade to iOS 16.4 now to keep your iPhone safe.
