How to solve the cave puzzle in Resident Evil 4 Remake
The main puzzle in the Lake involves symbols and pedestals. Divided into two parts, you must select the correct set of three symbols to unlock the way forward in Chapter 4 of the campaign. To do this, you must keep a sharp eye out for sets of markings drawn on the cave walls with some yellow paint.
In the first part of the puzzle, you must enter a small cave shrine located behind a North-East Door. You can press the following symbols in any order to unlock the door: three parallel waves, inverted W and three merged helices.
The second part of the puzzle takes place in a larger cave shrine located behind a South-West Door. To unlock the way forward, you must press the following symbols in any order: an inverted “W” similar to the previous solution, but with a protrusion facing below it, two broken signs facing each other, and two symbols together bulb and helix. However, be careful not to confuse this symbol with another one that has two signs in the same horizontal plane.
