Resident Evil 4 Remake: Four Swords Puzzle Solution

Once you reach a certain point in the castle, you'll find your progress quite literally barred by an iron door. In order to proceed we're going to need to solve a fairly simple environmental puzzle in the room we're in.

First up, turn to your left and you'll see a large gate that's blocking you from the other half of the room you're in. Have a closer look and you'll see three symbols on this gate. These symbols correspond to symbols you can see on plaques on the walls around you, one on your side of the gate, and two further plaques behind the gate. Shoot all three of these to open the way forward.

Once you've done this, approach the white mound in the centre of the area to retrieve the sword there and then make your way back to the other side of the room to interact with the four pictures, removing all the swords you find there too.

Once you've got all four swords, we need to put them in the right order, as shown below. The rusted sword goes in the grave, the bloody sword in the depiction of a knight being stabbed, the golden sword belongs with the golden knight and the iron sword is place with the lone knight standing in the picture on the far left.

And that's your job done here, the door will open and you can proceed on your not-so-merry way.
