No one likes to die over and over again. Returnal is a roguelike, every time you die, the world gets reset, and you lose temporary items. This makes the game more frustrating and hard to enjoy. However, Returnal has a system that allows you to come back to life using second life. This can be very useful when facing a Biome boss and dying with the boss at 5% HP. In this Returnal guide, we’ll discuss how to get the Astronaut Figurine and use it to unlock an extra life.
Getting Extra Life Via Astronaut Figurine In Returnal
The first thing to do is to acquire the Astronaut Figurine. For that, you will have to go to Overgrown Ruins and make your way to the 20th-century house in one of the rooms. After finding the key to the house, go inside and complete the story sequence. After this sequence, you will be back outside of the house, and you can collect the Astronaut Figurine.
Even though the game does not explicitly tell you this, you now have a second life thanks to this memento. You can use this memento anytime that you want. However, make sure to make good use of it. Using it in a near-victory boss fight would be the best option.
