Are you wondering how to fix Atomic Heart map not working glitch if you are suddenly unable to open your map even though you are outside? You aren’t alone if you receive an error message when opening your map. Many Atomic Heart players report an error saying they need to go outside to open the map even if they are outside.

This error message happens when players transition from an inside zone, like a facility or testing ground, back outside to the open-world free zone. Unfortunately, even though you are outside, the game doesn’t detect this change, so it thinks it should let you open the map.
