Paradox Simulations are a feature in Arknights that was introduced alongside Operator Records during the Mansfield Break event and has received frequent updates since.

Paradox Simulations are special operations that is unique to certain Operators, which are accessible on the Operator Details menu and unlocked when the subject Operator reaches specific promotions and levels.

Before starting the Paradox Simulation operation, the player has to choose the skill that the subject Operator will use for the operation, which features gimmicks meant to showcase an Operator's specific qualities with a challenge that is akin to a puzzle, moreso than typical operations tend to be, and often features specific rules that are meant to be counteracted by the subject Operator; for instance, automatic DP generation is disabled in Vigna's Paradox Simulation, forcing the player to make use of her trait (see Vanguard § Charger).

Paradox Simulation operations also have a preset, fixed squad with some also having pre-deployed Operators. All "guest" Operators in Paradox Simulations have pre-determined stats that are separate from those in the player's roster, if one does have them. In addition, the squad is not displayed in the Paradox Simulation menu. Regardless, the subject Operator's stats will match with that of the player's.

Paradox Simulation operations cost no Sanity.png Sanity to run and awards 200 Orundum.png Orundum when cleared for the first time.
