Atomic Heart is the latest game from Mundfish and it is amazing. Since the main focus of the game is combat, many players are finding it to be quite difficult. That is why we will show you how to change the difficulty in Atomic Heart so that you can have a great time.

To change the difficulty setting, open the menu and go to options. From there, select Gameplay and choose your ideal difficulty.

Whether you want to increase the difficulty or reduce it, you can do it either in-game or through the main menu screen. Let’s also talk about which difficulty setting is the best for new and experienced players alike.

How to Change Difficulty In-game

Changing the difficulty in Atomic Heart.

There are two primary ways in which you can change the difficulty. Firstly, you can start the game and go to Options in the main menu. From there, go to the Gameplay tab and select whatever difficulty you want.

If you have already started the game but are finding it too difficult, you can pause the game and select Options. The process is the same as you would change it from the main menu. The best part is that you are allowed to change your difficulty level at any point of Atomic Heart.

What is the Best Difficulty in Atomic Heart

Now that you know how to change the difficulty, let’s talk about what the best one is. If you are a new player that is familiar with FPS games – let’s be honest, who isn’t at this point? – you should play on the Normal difficulty.

However, if you are looking for a challenge, try out the Difficult mode. It provides a lot of challenge as enemies hit harder and have higher HP as well.

Ideally, playing on the Normal difficulty is suggested as the game is surprisingly challenging and can be often too difficult for newer players.
