How to solve the graveyard puzzle & find the broken relic in Cuphead

Secrets to uncover!

Cuphead’s Delicious Last Course DLC brings us even more of the 1930s cartoon boss battles for fans to enjoy. But just as secrets were hidden in the Inkwell Isles, there are secrets to be found in the DLC as well. The most interesting secret has to do with the Broken Relic and the Graveyard puzzle. Here is how you can solve the graveyard puzzle in Cuphead: Delicious Last Course.

How to complete the graveyard puzzle and unlock the secret in Cuphead

The first step to completing the graveyard puzzle is to acquire the Broken Relic. You can purchase this item from the Porkrind’s Emporium with coins. Once it’s purchased make sure to equip it. You can then find the graveyard at the southernmost part of the island, right above the airstrip. If for some reason you are having trouble locating it, look out for a blue glowing ghost that hangs out next to it.

With the Broken Relic equipped, you want to interact with three gravestones in a certain order. To solve the puzzle, first, interact with the middle stone in the top row. Next, interact with the stone all the way to the left on the bottom row. Last, interact with the stone all the way to the right in the top row. Pressing these gravestones in the correct order will cause the middle stone to shoot out a beacon of light. 

For those curious about where the answer to this puzzle came from, there are three NPCs standing on a podium up near Porkrind’s Emporium. Each NPC will give you a hint at the location of each stone. They will mention things like up and right or down and left. If you're a completionist, you can interact with them to see what they say, but it is not required to complete the puzzle using the answers above.

Successfully solving the puzzle will unlock a secret boss fight. Without spoiling too much, the boss fight is one of the most unique and challenging boss fights in the game. Needless to say, it’s definitely worth experiencing.
