Deliver Us Mars might be a narrative-driven title, but it's one that also comes with its fair share of puzzle solving. As you play through Chapter 5 of its story, you'll encounter a beam puzzle that shakes things up through the introduction of new mechanics you'll have to learn. Here is how you solve it.
The puzzle in question is required to progress through the game shortly after reuniting with your crew during Chapter 4. This time around, you’re working with just one beam-generating device.
Deliver Us Mars Chapter 5 Beam Puzzle
What's new is a device similar to the shield in the previous chapter, but which actually splits one beam into two, giving you the ability to hit targets in different parts of the level.
Start by crouching and moving through the door in front of your crewmates. Cut the panel on the floor to bring up the beam and point it at the target on the wall next to the door.
Behind the beam, in the same room, you'll find a splitter device. Move it in front of the beam and point one of the resulting beams at the same target.
This opens the door enough to let you spot another splitter, but you cannot crouch low enough to get in. Head outside, make a right, and look on the wall for a pathway that your drone can use.
Head into the room, pick up the splitter with the drone, then bring it outside by going under the door. Place it down in the room.
You'll then want to move one splitter in front of the glass panel in the room with the beam, so that you can hit both targets outside, bringing you closer to Deliver Us Mars' Chapter 5 beam puzzle solution.
Do so, and you'll notice that the left target is receiving too much power. This is where the second splitter comes in. Use the drone to move it near Sarah. Have Kathy then pick it up and bring it near the target on the left.
Head back to the first splitter and direct the left beam into the second splitter. Keep one on the right target, then project the second beam through the second splitter.
Then, all you need to do is direct one beam from the second splitter into the left target, prompting the door near it to open. This is the solution to the beam puzzle in Deliver Us Mars' Chapter 5.
