Just Die Already – How to Solve Zen Garden Main Puzzle

Zen Garden Main Puzzle Guide

Getting Through the Large Wooden Gates

Preferably just use C4. If you don’t have C4 and can’t spawn it from a machine, get some from the City Center’s main promenade. The construction yard has multiple C4’s by default, in the wheelbarrow and on the table.

You can also get inside the gates by knocking off the fire hydrant next to the main entrance and/or using i.e. a mattress or a trampoline to bounce in. There are many different options to get in and out of the Zen Garden, with explosives being, of course, the most permanent solution.

Opening Up the Rest of the Zen Garden

Entrance to the locked side building at the back of the temple area requires getting rid of the lower half of your legs (below the knees).

For complete unlocking of the temple area, you will also need two Golden Keys:

  • One to open up the inner yard section’s gate — although it’s possible to brute force one of the orbs over that doorway by dragging it over the roofs, so technically this one’s not mandatory, but it saves you a lot of grind.
  • Another to open up the weapons storage room (with JDA ticket[s] inside it) in the same side-building that requires “feetless” entrance.

There is also a movable statue-puzzle that’s hidden in the area which reveals something quite disturbing, to say the least. Opening it up will also unlock a bucket list item.

Avoiding getting ganged up on by the NPC monks:

  • Wear a Zen Master Hat. Grab one from the female monks that are roaming around the giant gong in the front yard.

To unlock the Zen Garden temple’s master room, you will need to:

  • Find three different-colored orbs: red, green and blue, and insert them on their consecutive places inside the temple’s control room (street level, inside the building opposite to the main temple’s entrance).

The three orbs.

Find two special keys to fit the console behind the orbs. Hint: The pictures on the back wall of the control room are trying to tip the player towards the location of the keys.

The back wall of the control room once the orbs have been inserted in place.

“Hmm…” *thinking intensifies*

Once the panel is completely unlocked, push the red button, rush outside and get ready!

I love games and I live games. Video games are my passion, my hobby and my job. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices. My first official job in the game industry started back in 2005, and I'm still doing what I love to do.


  1. Blow up Mama Sushi. Docks.

    In-game suggestion is to use the cannons behind the golden locked door next to the Pirate bar, to fire at the red barrels across the water.

    My solution was to use explosives on the barrels.

    • Get enough JDA tickets to be able to retire to Florida from the vending machine, then do just that. When you wake up on the other side, start looking for items on the ground, carry them to the hover car’s chassis that’s on the ground and try to get them to snap on to it. You need to get the pieces to click together, if I remember correctly it was like three parts from different spots of the yard. Once it’s been assembled, the hover car should automagically arise from the ground and you should be able to drive it.

  2. I can’t find any source showing any information on this even being completed by anyone, no guide has any information on actually completing it, and as far as I have explored in the game, I haven’t found a single naked person other than the one by the pool, who only counts as one person no matter how many times you grab him after a reset.

    • i did it, in zen garden there’s chest on a roof and an entrance to a home with a naked guy, another near the pool, in the bathroom at the place with air flowing up, one in the docks and last one I forget

  3. For Go Stump Yourself, it’s easier to lose limbs by going into the air vent beside the retirement home continuously since the spawn is right beside it. It removes all limbs and you’ll also get deaths quickly by doing so.
