How to Use Memory Bubbles in Honkai Star Rail

Here's how to use the mysterious Memory Bubbles in Honkai Star Rail.

I feel like Honkai Star Rail throws a lot at you between its chaotic intro and the expansive universe presented within the first few hours. And it’s easy to overlook things. One of the stranger aspects you’ll come across is Memory Bubbles. These particular items seem like they can’t be interacted with at first, but I can tell you that’s not the case. Here’s how to use Memory Bubbles in Honkai Star Rail.

Honkai Star Rail Memory Bubbles Explained

Memory Bubbles appear as blue floating orbs all over the Herta Space Station. They can be found as early as The Voyage Continues Trailblaze Mission that sees you leave the station.

If you’ve heard about these bubbles but can’t seem to find them, I’d suggest completing the Simulated Universe: Second Closed Beta and then the multi-part Road to Revival Adventure Missions. I’m unsure if there’s a specific trigger that makes them spawn, such as completing a particular adventure mission, but for me they only began to appear once I completed the above two missions.

Who Do You Talk to About Memory Bubbles? — Answered

Your first interaction with a Memory Bubble will result in a message saying that nothing’s happened and that you should ask someone for information about them. That’s not much of a hint, but there’s only one entity on the ship who seems to know more than anyone else — and that’s Herta.

If you enjoy talking to every NPC like I do, you probably realized that not all of Herta’s puppets provide the same dialogue. At least a couple of them will speak about the Bubbles, but only after you’ve interacted with a bubble.

I’ve seen many people players talk to a Herta puppet in the Storage Zone, who stands on the other side of a bridge puzzle. Although this will work fine, I talked to a different one that felt a lot less out of the way and is more convenient. This puppet can be found very close to a Memory Bubble in the Master Control Zone, just left of the Central Passage Space Anchor.

The above image shows where on the map the bubble can be found, while the Herta puppet will be found at the top of the nearby stairs.

Talk with her, and she’ll make you sign an agreement before explaining that the Memory Bubbles work similarly to Light Cones and hold memories inside.

How to Use Memory Bubbles

After this dialogue, you’ll be able to walk and interact with any Memory Bubbles you see. Each presents a different memory that is presented with a blank screen and text dialogue. Make it through to the end, and you’ll receive 1,000 credits.

Follow these simple steps, and you’ll be ready to use the Memory Bubbles in Honkai Star Rail. If you’re looking for more content to help your trailblazing journey, such as explaining how to reroll or how to complete the Hide-and-Seek quest, check out our expanding Honkai Star Rail guides hub.
