In Anthem you have to disable a barrier in the first mission “Triple Threat” to get the variety. For this you have to solve a little color puzzle. Want to know how? Don’t worry, we will tell you how to do that.
What’s the mission about? In the first demo mission you have to retrieve a device, the Mannigfalt, from the inner chamber for the quest giver Matthias. This happens after you eliminate the Dominions and recover Signa. So you get access to the chamber and are “led to the device of Dominion”. Once there, however, the variety is sealed by energy gates that you have to open.
These gates have colored symbols. Each goal is assigned a specific color. When all the goals are in the right color, the blue shimmering barrier that you can see in the cover picture will dissolve. Only then can you take the variety.
So it’s a chain-combination puzzle.
Barrier Symbols Solution
Pay attention to the symbols near a gate:
- You will find a symbol at every gate nearby.
- The symbols show the correct color for each goal
- Interact with the goal until it shows the color of the symbol in its vicinity
- If all goals are the same color as the symbol nearby, the barrier opens
If you don’t get it solved on your own, there is another way it could work: You are in luck and your group members solve this puzzle for you.
After completion of the mission you bring the Mannigfalt then in Fort Tarsis to Matthias. There you will also learn what this relic is capable of.
Please note: the symbols are always near the gate. But they are not always in the same place. So one icon is seen relatively high above the gate, while another is slightly below a small bridge. Another icon is then hidden again around the corner.

To share all information with you, there is something left to mention: Combos allow players to connect the Javelins’ attacks and skills. This will allow you to do extra damage and trigger an effect that depends on the Javelins.
