How to solve Elevation puzzle in Talos Principle 2

Because it’s a bonus puzzle, you can’t navigate to Elevation through the various puzzle signs. Instead, this is how to get to it: Stand at the center gate to the structure facing west. Take a right, then go straight down. You’ll see puzzle four. Go past puzzle four to find Elevation.

Elevation is a little tricky, but the key to the puzzle is in the name. Let’s go through it step-by-step.

Set the converter on the button. Then grab the box. Take the converter and move it over to the purple field on the other side. Connect it to the blue laser and blue circle. Lasers can pass through purple fields, but not blue.

This allows you to free the RGB converter from inside the second area. Take it outside, then set it on top of a box, while connecting it to the red and green laser and then the blue circle inside. This frees up the other converter; go back to it and reset it. Then go to your RGB converter and remove the box underneath. This lets it fall down safely without canceling the stream.

The last part is simple. Put the box on the button, take your single color converter, and connect it to the RGB converter and the final blue circle you need. That is the final step of the puzzle and brings you to its conclusion.
