Uncharted: The Lost Legacy – How to Solve the Axe Fort Puzzle

by Josh Hawkins

As you progress through Uncharted: The Lost Legacy you’ll come across an assortment of different locations and puzzles throughout the world that will challenge your wits as a treasure hunter. One of these puzzles, the Axe Fort puzzle, will come into play in Chapter 4: The Western Ghats, where you’ll need to solve all three of the Axe Fort trials without resetting any of the boards. Doing this will reward you with the Flawless Gauntlet trophy. In this article we’ll show you how to solve the Axe Fort Puzzle in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and earn that trophy quickly.

How to Solve the Axe Fort Puzzle

The first time that you approach the first phase of the puzzle, take note of the three states that each statue has. There is a resting state, preparation state, and an attack state. The purpose of this puzzle is to make sure that you are not in the statue’s line of fire when it attacks, otherwise you’ll be knocked away from the pillar that you are standing on top of, and the puzzle will reset. If—for some reason—this does happen, make sure you restart at the latest checkpoint to make sure you can still unlock this trophy.

It should also be noted that some of the pillars you can step on have an emblem on them, while others will not. The pillars with emblems on them mark the pillars that you can be attacked from, so make sure you’re on one of the pillars without an emblem when the statues end their attack phase. Continue moving through the puzzle—making sure you are on unmarked pillars when the statues enter attack phase—to make it to the end.

While it may take some trial and error to make it through—and you may need to reload your checkpoint a few times—going into the puzzle without any prior knowledge will lead you to a lot more resets. With that in mind, be patient, take your time, pay attention to the statues and the pillars, and keep moving forward until you reach the end without any mishaps.unc
