Resident Evil 4 Remake: The Sword Puzzle (Guide)
The Resident Evil 4 Remake creators once again prove their love for puzzles by blocking your way with the sword puzzle as you make your way through the Treasury of the Castle in the game.
This particular puzzle isn’t a long one, but it’s definitely a bit confusing since there’s little indication of what exactly is blocking your way and few clues as to which part of the room contains your way out.
In Resident Evil 4 Remake, you’ll encounter the sword puzzle in the Treasury of the Castle during Chapter 7. Here’s how to solve it:
Location: You’ll find the puzzle in the Treasury of the Castle.
Collect Swords: Gather three swords from the murals on the wall with the gate.
Fourth Sword: The fourth sword is behind the larger gate that separates the room.
Activate Targets: To open the gate, shoot the three targets hanging from the walls on either side of the room. These targets depict a deer, a bird, and a snake.
Sword Placement: Place the swords in the following order, from left to right:
Iron Sword in the first mural.
Golden Sword in the second mural.
Bloodied Sword in the third mural.
Rusted Sword in the final portrait.
Following this sequence will unlock the gate and allow you to progress in the game.

Finding the Sword Puzzle
In Chapter 7 of Resident Evil 4 Remake, you will make your way through a castle of dark rooms filled with enemies, traps, and treasures. When you find the Dungeon Key with the inscription: Ha muerto la luz, you will fall through the floor and find yourself in a lengthy, brutal fight with a Garrador.
Mural 1 – Knight Standing with Sword: This mural depicts a knight standing at attention, holding a sword in front of him. This represents the starting position of the puzzle.
Mural 2 – Knight Being Knighted: The second mural shows the same knight on his knees before a person with a crown, who is knighting him with a sword. This represents the action you need to take.
Mural 3 – Knights in Battle: The third mural displays two knights engaged in battle. One of these knights is presumed to be the same figure shown in the previous portraits. This represents the battle stage of the puzzle.
Mural 4 – Grave with Sword: The final mural depicts a grave with a sword placed in front of it. This signifies the end of the puzzle sequence.
To solve the puzzle and unlock the gate in the Treasury, follow these steps:
Begin at the starting point, where the knight is standing with the sword.
Proceed to the second mural and mimic the knight’s action of kneeling. This can be done by interacting with the sword in front of the knight.
Move on to the third mural, which represents the battle stage. This is where you need to engage in a battle or combat scenario to proceed. Make sure you are prepared for any enemies or challenges in this area.
Finally, return to the starting point (first mural) and interact with it again. This will complete the sequence, and the gate in the Treasury should unlock.
These murals and the scene in the Treasury are significant, as they contain clues and symbolism that will be relevant to your progress in Chapter 7 of Resident Evil 4 Remake.
