Anthem Triple Threat Puzzle: How to Deactivate the Barrier

After starting the "Triple Threat" mission, you'll have to slaughter a bunch of nameless NPC mobs in order to get inside the vault. Once inside the chamber, you'll encounter a trio of Dominion enemies that like to float through the air until their shields have been broken. Clear these enemies and you'll see three portals around the room that can be rotated between four different colors: yellow, blue, red and purple.

To complete the puzzle, you'll need to switch the portal colors to the corresponding light on the wall. Near each portal there's a small light that you'll miss if you aren't looking for it. It's just a speck, but once you know what you are looking for, you can't miss it. One is behind the wall, while the other is on the fence right in front of the portal. Change each color and you'll unlock the Manifold, a powerful artifact, and complete the mission.
