While playing through Chapter 4: The Western Ghats of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, players will have to navigate through the Axe Fort Puzzle. This puzzle comes with a trophy attached to it called Flawless Gauntlet. To earn the trophy, players must get through all three Axe Fort trials without resetting any boards.
Axe Fort Puzzle Solution
When you approach the first phase of the puzzle, note that each statue has three states. These are the resting state, preparation state, and the attack state. The point here is to make sure that you’re not in the line of fire when a statue enters its attack state. If you are, you’ll be knocked from the pillar you’re standing on and the board will have to reset. If this happens, reload your checkpoint so that you can still unlock the Flawless Gauntlet trophy.
Also, worth noting is that some pillars will have an emblem on them and some won’t. Pillars with an emblem are pillars where you can be hit. If a pillar doesn’t have an emblem, you can be on that pillar during the attack phase and you’ll be fine.
The goal of the puzzle is to navigate through the Axe Fort Puzzle by passing over pillars with emblems while a statue is in one of the first two states. This requires some trial and error, and going it alone without the use of a guide is likely to result you in having to restart the checkpoint to earn the trophy.
