You need to follow the path around and you should see that you're being blocked by a malfunctioning door. To fix it, shoot the malfunctioning part above the door with a normal Blaster shot and when the panel comes off, shoot it again with an electric shot.
The door will then open and you can head into the next room. When you're in the room, look around until you see another smaller malfunctioning part on your left. Shoot this then ask Rocket to head through it.

What Are Outfits?
Outfits are cosmetic skins that you can apply to any of the 5 Guardians but you need to collect them throughout each chapter. They will not always be easy to find so you will need to explore each area but they're worth finding as they can make your team look extremely cool. Many of the outfits have taken inspiration from different Marvel stories featuring the Guardians.
How To Equip Outfits
To equip any of the outfits that you have found, you will need to open up the Guardians Menu. In the menu, you need to highlight which Guardian you want to select the outfit for and then click the appropriate control for bringing up the outfits. This will vary on each platform so you should go to your controls option on your pause menu to see which control it is.
When you've picked the Guardian, you will be taken to the outfits menu which will look like this:
You will then be able to see all of the outfits that you have and you can simply click on which one you want to equip. Also, when you highlight an outfit you will be given a little comment on it from your chosen Guardian too.
The outfits in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy feature many references that a lot of Marvel fans will enjoy. If you're playing the game but finding that you're getting a bit stuck on some parts, we have a guide on how to craft perks to make Peter's skills better and we have one on new game plus for those of you who have already completed it!
