NieR Automata: How to Get to the Roof in Robo Dojo

In this guide for NieR Automata, we’ll explain how to reach the roof of a building in City Ruins that’s related to the Robo Dojo quests and Father Servo. The challenge lies in performing special actions while in mid-air.

The building in question is found near the entrance to the Desert Zone in City Ruins.

Once you reach Chapter 5 of the campaign, you’ll see a marker in this area indicating that you can accept the first quest, as shown in the attached screenshot.

There are no ladders or stairs in the area to reach the roof of the building in a typical manner. Instead, look behind the bus wreckage in the screenshot to find the building adjacent to the one with the quest marker. Use multiple double jumps to reach its roof.


From here, look towards the water tower in the attached screenshots, and either use a ladder or double jump to reach its top. You’ll see your destination from there – a single machine standing on the roof of the neighboring building.

You may think that the neighboring roof is too far away, but there are certain move combinations you can perform while in mid-air that will help you cross the necessary distance.

We suggest using one of these two move sequences:

  1. Start sprinting (R2) on the water tower -> quickly press the jump button (X) -> press the jump button again (X) -> dash in mid-air (R2).
  2. Run normally, then perform a double jump (X, X) -> bounce off the pod in mid-air (R1 X) -> dash in mid-air (R2).

Either of these methods should allow you to land safely on the roof and reach Father Servo to begin the first Robo Dojo side quest. We’ve covered all the quests in this line on the City Ruins page in the Side quests section of the walkthrough.
