Resident Evil 4 Crystal Marble Puzzle

The puzzle involving the crystal ball in Resident Evil 4 Remake is comparable to the one involving the orb in the original game. The crystal ball puzzle from the original game is joined in the Remake by a new padlock puzzle. Here is the guide to solving both of them.

The Crystal Marble puzzle is one of the most confusing puzzles in the game, it has players rearrange the Crystal Marble so that the cluster of bubbles inside matches up with the Los Illuminados insignia in the backdrop.

Nevertheless, it’s easier said than done because it’s unclear how to get the marble to line up correctly. 

Key Takeaways

  • The Crystal Marble puzzle appears a little after the start of Chapter 2
  • Players will have to arrange a cluster of bubbles to fit perfectly with the backdrop of the Las Plagas Insignia
  • To acquire the crystal ball, there will be a 2 story house with a padlocked Cupboard.
  • Approach the lock and use the following combination to open it; CROP,PIG and BABY
  • Insert the Ball in the slot in the door, on the second floor of the house
  • Rearrange the cluster to fit the backdrop and voila!

The crystal marble is a fictitious item that must be utilized to unlock a door on the manor’s upper floor that belongs to the Village Chief. Getting your hands on the crystal marble is necessary before you can proceed with that.

How To Solve Padlock Puzzle

You’ll pass a house split into two levels on the route to the lake where you’re going. If you go to the second level and look across the hall from the typewriter, you’ll see a door with a circular indentation. You will discover a notice with the heading Illuminados 4:3 in this location.

You’ll want to go down to the first floor, where a closet is secured with a padlock. The lock, which uses symbols rather than numbers or letters, will appear quite familiar to anyone who has played the remade versions of Resident Evil 2 or Resident Evil 3 that Capcom has released.

Consider the following line, which is taken from a book that may be discovered in the area, for those of you who are looking for a clue to the solution.

  • Crop
  • Pig
  • Baby

To open the wardrobe and retrieve the Crystal Marble, you must set the Padlock to the appropriate symbols in this image.

How To Solve Crystal Marble Puzzle

When you have successfully opened the chest, you will be able to retrieve the treasure that was hidden inside. You will locate a grey, spherical one named the Crystal Marble.

It might not seem like much, but it is an essential item to proceed with the game’s main story. It would be best if you went back to the higher level and cast it on the door that has the circular depression in it.

Once you have the crystal marble in your possession, proceed to the upper level of the building, turn left in the first hallway, and continue walking until you reach a locked door. Put the marble in the slot to start the crystal marble puzzle.

I suggest breaking up the solving of the Crystal Ball puzzle into multiple phases.

  • Spinning the crystal in a circle will help you concentrate the particles (use the left stick).
  • You can generate a two-dimensional image by spinning the sphere (use the RB and R1 buttons).
  1. Use the left control stick to spin the Crystal Ball until you get a particle concentration that resembles an inverted symbol.
  2. After that, you should let off the left control stick.
  3. You must rotate the crystal to point to the left to pack these marbles into a more closely packed shape.
  4. Your objective is to turn the marble until it bubbles around the Las Plagas insignia so that it becomes visible.
  5. You’ll need to twist and spin the bubbles to figure out their shape, even though they create the same shape.
  6. Flip the marble over so the bubbles create the emblem in a vertical, right-side-up position.
  7. Next, you’ll want to ensure the bubbles surround the backdrop emblem nicely.
  8. A door will unlock when the marble correctly aligns and clicks into place.
  9. This will indicate that the task has been successfully finished for now.
  10. Once the sign has been created, spin the puzzle so that it is facing in either direction 180 degrees.
  11. The image will fall into place once the pieces have been brought together.
