Uncharted 4 Guide: How To Solve The Crucifix Light Puzzle In Chapter 8

During chapter 8 of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, you and Sam will find the supposed grave of Henry Avery, whose tombstone will reveal a secret passage that leads you into an underground crypt.

Another puzzle comes not long after you enter the crypt, in which you must interact with a crucifix scene using light to get through a door. 

If you’ve been having trouble with the crucifix light puzzle in Uncharted 4, here’s our helpful guide on how to complete it.

The crucifix light puzzle in Uncharted 4 is found in Chapter 8 “The Grave of Henry Avery”, not too long after the grave puzzle earlier. If you’re having trouble with that sequence, we also have a guide for that here too.

To begin the puzzle, interact with the Jesus statue in the centre of the crucifix scene. It looks like the image above. This will trigger a mechanism on the other side of the wall, so follow the wall around to the other side and interact with the lamp to light it up with Sam’s lighter.

This activates the light that is projected through the three statues (Dismas, Jesus, and Gestas) that you need to solve the puzzle. So head back around to the front of the statues and interact with one of them to see that you can line up two beams of light with the sensors located on the big door.

Below are images for how to line up the lights for each of the three statues.

Once you’ve done that, a lever will appear on the bottom left of the door for you to interact with. Head over to it and pull the lever to open the door.
