As with any game that channels the Metroidvania tradition, High On Life isn’t short on secrets you can only access once you’ve unlocked new abilities or equipped new weapons. These allow you to return to previous levels and reach previously inaccessible areas, including those barred by fans in High On Life.

Behind them, you’ll find quirky Easter eggs (including a use for the volleyball), those plentiful Lugloxes containing mods and Pesos, and even a few shortcuts. Now, simply walking through the fans invariably results in an early death. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to stop fans in High On Life and get through safe and sound.

How to Stop Fans in High On Life

First, you’ll need to have completed the Douglas Bounty. After defeating the G3 cartel boss, you’ll pick up the Sweezy Gatlian, a semi-automatic pistol with a time bubble ability. This special ability allows you to freeze time. It can be used to momentarily slow enemies and also fans, giving you a window to get through them unharmed.

To stop fans in High On Life, aim Squeezy at the rotating blades and fire off the time bubble. From there, it’s a case of getting through the fans before the bubble expires. The duration of the time slow is relatively generous, so though it’s worth getting through quickly, you should have more than enough time.

Alongside Sweezy, the Jetpack is also a great tool when passing through fans, especially elevated ones. You’ll pick up the Jetpack after completing the Krubis and Douglas Bounties. Return to Blim City and visit Mr. Keep’s and Son’s Pawn shop. For more details, check out our guide to getting the Jetpack in High On Life.
