How to Get Past 22F in Persona 3 Reload

How do you open up the border floor's closed path in Tartarus?

After your initial run to Floor 22 of Tartarus, you will come across a blocked path with no other option to bypass it. P3R calls it a border floor and these are closed paths that you can cross if it’s the right time.

Kirijo mentions the Border Floor in Tartarus

Since there are no specifics mentioned at this point, you might head back to your dorm and come back the next night, only to find it still blocked. Here’s how to get past 22F in Persona 3 Reload.

How to Get Past 22F Border Floor Closed Path in Persona 3 Reload?

There’s nothing that can be done to unblock the path until it’s the right time

To open the blocked floor 22 in P3R, you must wait a bit longer – that is 9th May which is a Saturday to be specific. This is because it’s a full moon and that is when you will have the chance to continue your journey in Tartarus.

You won’t have to do anything special to initiate it; simply progress your days (don’t forget to complete your other tasks meanwhile) and when it’s 5/9, the quest will start on its own.

There was quite a gap between the two dates for me, so if that’s the case for you too, here’s what you can do. Talk to people, deepen your connections for Social Links, earn money via part-time jobs, and improve your social stats of Academics, Charm, and Courage. You can also fuse your Personas to make them more powerful.

Once the time has passed, the closed path will convert to a flight of stairs and you can progress to the next level/floor of Tartarus.

This is not the only Border Floor in the entire Tartarus (which is made up of 264 floors in total), so whenever you come across a similar blocked path in the future, the answer is to wait until the next full moon and it will open up then. The Mysterious Boy will also appear before this occasion so you can’t miss it.

That’s everything to know about opening up a border floor in Tartarus in Persona 3 Reload. If you wish to exit Tartarus anytime, here’s how to go about it.
