The Lake Symbol Puzzle is a two-part puzzle in the Resident Evil 4 Remake.
The first location of the puzzle is in the Large Cave Shrine, and the second is in the Small Cave Shrine.
You need both sculpture heads to get the Church Insignia to progress the story further.
These puzzles require three correct symbol buttons pressed together to unlock the gate.
The clues to the symbol puzzle would be painted on the insides of these caves. You would need to view symbols at an angle.
You can also find rewards at these locations that could be sold to the Merchant for money.
Important Note: I found many treasure itemsand sometimes encountered threats around this lake area. Also, I should remind you that you need a boat to access both locations.
The Church And The Key
During the 4th Chapter of the game, your main objective is to find a way inside the church. As that is the possible location of the ‘baby eagle’ or AshleyGraham, the main reason Leon comes to the village.
However, the church gates are locked and require the Church Insignia, the key. To get started, your next objective in the game is to get the church key.
Nevertheless, in true Resident Evil 4 manner, the Church Insignia requires you to gather two objects. When placed in the two giant hands, these two objects will release the key you can use later at the church.
It will ask you to solve two puzzles spread across the Lake to get these two objects.
First Lake Symbol Puzzle
The first Lake Symbol Puzzle is next to the boat house where you acquired the boat. Take your boat to the right of the house at the Large Cave Shrine, near the first Mural Cave.
You will see the objective marker on this location, and you will also see an option to park your boat here.
Once you arrive in the cave, you will see a round-dial thing with eight different symbol buttons.
Press three buttons with the correct symbols to unlock the door next to it.
As a result, there are three symbols that you must find within the cave painted on the walls. These symbols are tough to miss as they are painted in yellow. Sometimes, I had to view these symbols from a certain angle to form a correct symbol.
After you have found all three symbols, head back to the dial and press the three buttons to open the door.
Reward For This Puzzle
Behind the doors, you will receive a silver statue, which can be sold to the merchant in the game.
The second lake symbol puzzle is located across the Lake. This is called the SmallCaveShrine, located at the top right corner of the Lake, at the right of the settlement. You would also need your boat here to cross the enormous Lake.
Once you enter the cave, you will see the rounddial right in the middle of it.
This dial is the same as the first one, but the symbols differ. You would also need to press the three buttons to unlock the door next to it.
Within the cave, the symbols are also painted on the wall with yellow color. Similar to the first cave, I had to view some symbols in this cave at the correct angle to get the right answer.
Once you have found all three symbols, head back to the dial and select the three symbols. Once all three symbol buttons are pressed, the door next to it will unlock.
Reward For This Puzzle
Similar to the first puzzle, you will find the silver statue behind the door after solving the puzzle.
Getting The Church Insignia
After completing both puzzles, you can see two silver heads in your inventory. You must bring both these heads back to the giant hands. Then, place both hands in the palm of both big hands.
The circular piece in the center of his structure will rotate and release the Church Insignia or the key required to enter the church. Collect the key in the center and return it to the church. Then, place the key at the church gate, which will unlock the gate.
My Experience With The Lake Symbol Puzzle
The Lake Symbol Puzzle is one of the complex puzzles that implores exploration and attention to detail. You can easily figure out the puzzle by paying attention to the surroundings. My only recommendation is to bring enough weapons and backup ammo to clear out any threat in the location so it does not trouble you to progress the game.
