Heavy Traffic 3 is one of many frustrating and challenging puzzles in Astral Chain, so here’s how to beat it.
In this third File 8 puzzle, you need to use your Arm Legion to move abandoned cars and clear a path forward. The first two Heavy Traffic puzzles are relatively straightforward, but this one is a bit trickier.
The aim is to do this in 35 moves or fewer, which can seem like a pretty daunting task but it’s worth it for the bonus and that elusive S rank.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at what you need to do.
Astral Chain: Heavy Traffic 3 puzzle guide
The cars are laid out on a grid, and you’ll need to shuffle them around to clear a path.
First, move the car on the bottom right of the grid up two squares so that it is beside the other black car. Then, pull the white car down by two squares so that it is at the bottom of the grid.
Next, place the black car you moved earlier in the bottom right-hand corner of the grid. Pull the second white car down to the square in front of the other white car.
Pull the black car in the top right-hand corner down to the other black car, then go to the black car in the yellow section of the grid and place it in the top right-hand corner. From there, drag it down next to the other black cars.
Next, pull the black car in the top left of the grid over to the right-hand corner. Go to the nearer white car, pull it up two spaces and push it into the empty space on the right. Do the same with the second white car, sticking it in the space in the top right of the grid.
Now, pull the bus up to the top of the grid and place it in the empty space on the left-hand side to finish the puzzle.
If you managed to do it in under 35 moves, you’ll get Premium Material Code for your troubles.
