Uncharted 4 Constellation Puzzle: How To Solve Avery's Grave

Henry Avery's grave is a star-studded attraction! People are dying to get in!

Comments

Of the two games in the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, The Lost Legacy is significantly more puzzle-heavy. But, that doesn't mean Uncharted 4: A Thief's End doesn't have a head scratcher or two. In Chapter 8, "The Grave of Henry Avery," the trouble starts after you locate the grave in question and must find the solution to a puzzle involving a constellation formed from points of light.

Beneath Henry Avery's apparent final resting place, you will find a room with a trio of pillars, each bearing an inscription depicting either Jesus or one of the two thieves crucified at his side. To begin the puzzle, interact with the central pillar to make Nate and Sam comment on the inscriptions. Then, go around behind the back and ask Sam to light the lamp. This will cause six bright blue dots to appear on the wall.

Now, go back to the front. The goal of this puzzle is to move paired lights onto the stones set into the wall until they form a completed constellation (which you can see at the bottom of this guide). Move the leftmost lights toward the center and rotate them so that the top light overlaps with the second stone from the top and the bottom light overlaps with the second stone from the bottom.

With the lights in place, Sam will alert you "Nathan, that's it! You got it!" Time to see what's behind that door.
