On this page of our guide we have provided solutions to all the difficult puzzles in chapter 6 of Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception titled The Chateau. This chapter is one of the most demanding when it comes to puzzles. Our walkthrough explains, step by step, how to solve every single puzzle.
The knights statues puzzle
The puzzle can be found in the chamber with the fireplace and four statues of knights placed in the corners of the room . Each one of the knights holds a different weapon.
Once you approach the statues, you will notice that they are placed on mobile platforms. A quick glance at Drake's notebook will reveal the correct positioning of the knights . According to the sketch in the notebook, you need to rotate them so that the knight is facing towards the knight holding the weapon drawn on the right side of the knight's sketch.
In other words:
- a knight with a shield must look at a knight with an axe,
- a knight with an axe must look at a knight with a shield,
- a knight with a mace must look at a knight with a shield,
- knight with a sword must look at the knight with an axe.
The floor symbols puzzle
This riddle concerns the stone slabs with symbols on the floor. By looking into the log we learn that in order to activate the mechanism that opens the secret passage, we must properly move from the initial symbol (yellow moon and wheel) to the final symbol located at the opposite end of the room . Along the way, we must stand on the right amount (also indicated in the notebook) of the symbols while sticking to the specified order.
The solution of the puzzle is shown in the picture above - we drew a line symbolizing the correct route of the march:
- Starting with the moon and the circle, we go through four red symbols.
- Then we go through 3 green symbols and then through 4 blue ones.
- Afterwards, we step onto 2 green symbols, then march through 3 red ones and finally get to the end field.
If we step on the incorrect slab, all the previously activated ones will return to their original position and the whole activity will have to be started over.
The wall symbols puzzle
During the playthrough of the chapter, you will run into a wall with symbols on it. In its four corners there are tiles with the images of a bull, a horse, an eagle and a lion. They can be installed on the wall using a machine placed in the center of the room .
On the sides of the room there are stone slabs with images of a bull, a horse, an eagle and a lion (two plates are destroyed). Under the image of animals on the floor there are dark plates , in which we will see different symbols (the same as on the board), depending on which side you look at them. With these symbols, we can determine the position of the animal on the board.
In Drake's notebook we will find the correct position of the two animals , the rest we must determine, based on the tips placed on the sides of the hall.
Once we have collected all the necessary information, we can use the machine and set the animals on the board. The solution of the puzzle can be found in the above screenshot .
Go through the hidden passage and approach the tomb . After recovering the artifact, leave the tomb to encounter your competitors.
