The location of all 24 Prometheus sparks. The ones that let you skip puzzles.
Also shout out to the /r/TheTalosPrinciple reddit community for helping me find a few as well.
Exit puzzle 6 and go around to the back of the puzzle. Keep going and you’ll see a statue with the spark in front of it.
This next one is north west of puzzle 3’s entrance. There is a higher path and a lower path, take the higher one and hug the left wall. You’ll reach the cliff edge, follow it and you’ll run into the spark.
This is one the trickiest to describe. Starting at the pandora statue (the one inside the small maze of walls) go south east. You’ll keep a rock wall on your right and end up in a clearing once the wall curves aray, with forest ahead. A small shrine is in these trees.
Facing the front of the golden puzzle, follow the path around the puzzle to the right. The spark is at the end.
At puzzle 6, go west to the shore and you should see a submerged structure nearby. Go inside it andon the east side there is a path up. Jump over the gaps in the roof and jump down to the spark.
At puzzle 6 go east and you’ll find a structure with a spark which needs a button pressed to activate a fan to reach. Facing the front of the structure (the side with the button) go back through the left door and you’ll see a wind-up toy between two rocks. Activate it and wait on the fan for it to push the button for you.
You can also smuggle a connector out of puzzle 4 if you want instead I suppose, It’s not too hard to figure out how. In that puzzle you already used the boxes to go over one wall, what’s one more?
Incidentally the wind up toy is not present if you’ve already gotten the spark.
Travelling from puzzle 7 to puzzle 8 you’ll walk on a boardwalk around the edge of some water with a large rock structure in the middle. The spark is on top of this structure.
There’s a south-most corner to this area (maybe a bit west too). Go there and look north to see gravity plating. The spark is at the top.
There were so many better places to hide sparks on this map. But no, check behind puzzle 5.
At the golden puzzle, go south onto a tiny peninsula for the spark.
Facing the entrance to the lab, go around the rock structure the lab entrance is built into to the back. The spark is almost exactly behind the lab entrance near the structure (but not on top of it).
BONUS STRATON: He’s hanging out near the second fan, ignore it and keep following the wall to the leeft.
Leaving puzzle 6, walk forward until you reach a small drop. Drop down and turn left. The spark should be a small walk away.
At puzzle 6 go west. You’ll see bronze hands next to some gravity plating on a building. Take the plating to get to the spark.
Maybe that’s a speedrun strat and you’re speedrunning, in which case I’m going to question the wisdom of reading a guide while the timer is going.
For the rest of you, go solve those puzzles and get your 24!
Also no achievement tied to this or anything, so I hope the intrinsic value of this accomplishment will sustain you. Except you had to use a guide so maybe not.
Whatever. You do you. As for me I’m off to play some Halo or something. Goodbye.
