Learn about all the Puzzle Solutions in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

Attention all zombie-slaying, herb-gathering, and treasure-seeking gamers! The long-awaited Resident Evil 4 Remake has finally arrived, and it’s bringing back all the heart-pounding, adrenaline-rushing, and hair-raising moments that we’ve come to know and love (and fear) from the original game.

It’s time to dust off your weapons, stock up on first aid sprays, and prepare for a journey filled with more twists and turns than a mutated zombie’s spine. So grab your controller, take a deep breath, and get ready to immerse yourself in a world that’s equal parts survival horror and sarcastic humor (just like my life!).

Now, imagine getting lost in the maze-like region of rural Spain while dealing with zombies and other creatures that are out to get you. Scary, right? But don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. This post will take you through all the puzzle solutions in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

Puzzles in Resident Evil 4 Remake

First off, let’s talk about the locations. The game is filled with various puzzles scattered throughout different locations, like castles, villages, and even underground labs. These puzzles range from simple tasks like rotating a dial to more complex ones like figuring out a combination to open a door.

But wait, there’s more. And let’s not forget the Cemetery puzzle, where you need to move gravestones to uncover a key. It’s almost as if the developers wanted to see how far they could push us.

Truly, one of the Remakes of all time

For instance, there’s a puzzle in the Castle where you must arrange three family crests in a specific order to open a door. The order is as follows: first, the horse, then the knight, and finally, the king. Easy, right? But don’t get too cocky because the game lures you into a false sense of security.

Another challenging puzzle, the Island puzzle, for instance, involves finding and combining three different emblems to reveal a hidden path. This puzzle might seem easy at first, but getting the symbols aligned correctly requires a lot of trial and error. And don’t even get us started on the sliding block puzzles. These puzzles will make you question your very existence as you spend hours figuring out the right sequence to move the blocks.

Stone Pedestal Puzzle

You’ll come across this Stone Pedestal puzzle in Chapter 3 of Resident Evil 4 Remake. You will need three hexagon pieces to solve this puzzle. These hexagon pieces can be found in different locations in Chapter 3.

Hexagon Piece A is located in the Treasure Chest across from the Merchant at the start of this chapter. Hexagon Piece B can be found in the Fish Farm near where the gas container is picked up by going straight into the water. From there, turn left under the pathway, and head straight back to find the chest containing the piece. And the Hexagon Piece C can be found in the Small Cave Shrine located at the northeast end of the lake.

Once you have the pieces, put them on the pedestal and change their position to form the pattern afterward. Solving this will award you with a Depraved Idol. You can sell this for 15,000 Pesetas.

Church Stained Glass Puzzle

You’ll visit the Church at the end of Chapter 4 of Resident Evil 4 Remake. There, you will see this puzzle. At first, you need to activate the puzzle. To do this, flip a switch on the wall to the left of the podium. This will reveal a panel with a Red and Green Dial. However, it’s missing the Dial on the far left.

The missing Blue Dial can be found in a cupboard at the back of the room. Bring the Blue Dial back to the panel and place it in. Now, you need to recreate the Las Plagas symbol with these different colors of stained glass. To do that, you have to rotate all the stained glasses in the correct position with the Dials. The final form will look like the picture below. After solving this, you will find a ladder that will make you reach Ashley.

Cave Shrine Puzzles

At the start of Chapter 4 of Resident Evil 4 Remake, you will come across a puzzle that can be solved with the Apostate’s Head and Blasphemer’s Head. It will give you the Church Key in the Mural Cave.

Head to the Large Cave Shrine at first. There will be a locked cave on the left. To open this, you will need to find out three different symbols in the correct order. However, in the cave, you will see these symbols in Yellow markings on the cave walls. Not much of a hassle, I would say.

After you have found these symbols, return to the locked cave and push the buttons to match the symbols. You will get the Apostate’s Head from here. Now, head to the Small Cave Shrine.

This one’s almost similar to the first one. However, Devs did an oopsie and left some decoy symbols on the cave wall to toy with you. No need to worry, as you will find one of the symbols on the left side of the shrine. The other ones will be on the second floor.

Now, head back down and push the buttons with the symbols that you just found out. It will give you the Blasphemer’s Head.

After this, return to the Mural Cave. Now, place these two items on the hand sculptures. You will get the Church key from there.

Headless Statue Puzzle

By Chapter 9, you will be in the Castle. Soon you will come across an incomplete sculpture in the Grand Hall that resembles a chimera. However, the heads are missing. You need to find a Serpent, Lion, and Goat head. No need to worry as these parts are just lying around. Let’s find these!

To get the Serpent Head, head to the Dining Hall located in the Northeast room of the Grand Hall. Now, you have to solve another puzzle.

You will notice two portraits on the wall at the back of the Dining Hall. Observe them closely and their positions on how they are sitting at the dining table. Then sit at the dining table in the similar arrangement and ask Ashley to do so. After that, ring the bell on the table, and that will unlock the showcase where the Serpent is.

The Lion Head can be found in the Armory; no extra sweat here; well, yes, technically. However, no extra sweat for the Goat Head, I am sure. Head to the last floor of the Grand Hall. On the southwest side, you will see a door that initiates a corridor. Follow along, and inside the Gallery, you will come across the Goat Head.

Now, you have all the head items. Head to the Chimera sculpture and interact with it by putting the heads. It will open up a nearby door that will lead you to progress.

Electric Lock Puzzle

Next thing on the list is the Electric Lock Puzzle which can be accessed in the Island part of the Resident Evil 4 Remake. This kind of lock can be seen three times on the Island; in the Dissection Room, Freezer, and Waste Disposal area.

By Chapter 13, you will be needing a keycard. That means destiny will somehow lead you to the Dissection Room. As the power has been cut, you need to re-establish. You will notice a hallway located on the south side of the map. Go south down the hallway and enter the open room across from the gate to restore power.

Now, to solve this, you have to rotate nodes on switchboards on display and connect power lines to all the power icons. However, the puzzle’s difficulty level depends on what difficulty you started the game with.

The Freezer room Power Puzzle is a little bit tricky. However, with a bit of patience, you are good to go. This one is almost similar to the last one but with more icons. Once you solve this one, it will give you access to the Freezer room. Inside, you will get a fancy LE5 Submachine gun.

Now, the Power puzzle in the Waste Disposal area nonetheless falls under the same category. Rotate all the nodes as usual, and it will let you progress further in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

So, there you have it—all the puzzle solutions in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Before heading back to your den, also check out all voice actors, how to swap guns, and how to parry attacks in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
