This puzzle's solution can be found by reading the note upstairs, where the scripture will have these symbols highlighted in green. The correct order is crops, pig, and baby. Unlocking this will also get Leon the key item to solve the puzzle upstairs. This marble puzzle requires that Leon rotates the ball until it matches the symbol.

Lake Symbols and Hexagon Puzzles

The three Lake Puzzles in Chapter 4 can all be covered in more detail in our guide. The hexagon puzzle is entirely optional but can be solved in just a few moves from the start. The picture on the left shows the solution for the door on the South end of the Lake, and the one in the center shows the solution for the one on the North end.

Church Window Puzzle

When arriving at the church, Leon can activate the puzzle by stepping towards the glass and pulling the lever on the left. The missing blue dial can be found in a drawer on the church's right. The actual puzzle involves making the colors match in place with the symbol. The green or middle part of the glass is the easiest to navigate as it can be fit under the wings of the icon in the center first. Even if all the glass is matched, if it's off-center to the icon, it won't work.

Treasury Puzzles

In the Treasury of the Castle, one of the swords needed for the puzzle requires Leon to shoot the matching symbols in the next room. On Hardcore difficulty and above, multiple of the same symbol can be found in the room, but it just serves as a minor distraction. When placing the swords in the murals, the order from left to right is the Iron Sword, Golden Sword, Bloodied Sword, and Rusted Sword.

The Lithograph Puzzle is gone into more depth in our guide, but the basic idea is to match the icons as well as the symbols that they are surrounded by. The bottom icon must be blue armor in a hexagon, the right icon must be a blue dagger in a square, the top icon must be an orange shield in a square, and the left icon must be an orange helmet in a hexagon.

Dining Hall Seating Puzzle

The Dining Hall Puzzle requires that Leon and Ashley sit in two different places and ring the bell. The places can be seen by looking at the large painting on the other side of the room that depicts two different sets of silverware. For Ashley, this is the last rightmost seat at the first table, with two knives, a spoon, a fork, and an empty plate. For Leon, this is the last leftmost seat at the second table, with three knives, two forks, a spoon, a plate with a loaf of bread, and a glass bottle.

Library Clock Puzzle

The time that the clocks have to be set to while playing as Ashley will change depending on whether the game is played on Assisted/Standard or Hardcore/Professional. The time will be told in a note after using one of the keys on the elevator. For Standard and below, the time is 11:04, and for Hardcore and above, the time is 7:00.

Mausoleum Lantern Puzzle

There is a lot of room for error in the lantern puzzle, but for the fastest solution, Ashley can take her starting lantern and replace it with the one in the far back, or the full moon, then the crescent moon, and finally place the last one at the star.
