Uncharted: The Lost Legacy - Shadow Puzzle Solution

Learn how to solve the shadow puzzle in 10 moves or less playing Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.


Uncharted: The Lost Legacy isn’t just about sliding down zip lines and swinging from grappling ropes. Sometimes the game slows down and presents you with a puzzle that blocks your progress. In Chapter 5 - The Great Battle, players are presented with the Shadow Puzzle. It’s something that you can take as long to complete as you’d like, but correctly solving it in 10 moves or less will earn you the Shadow Theater trophy.

Shadow Puzzle Solution

The Shadow Puzzle requires players to move objects to line them up with paintings in a wall. It’s a little tricky, but if you’re not interested in getting a trophy you can take as many moves as you like. If you do want the trophy but have already used more than your allotted 10 moves, simply reload your checkpoint and use the solution we’re providing you below.

Stand at the Shadow Puzzle so that the exit door is directly across from you. Now, number each lever of the Shadow Puzzle from 1-12, starting on the left and moving clockwise. Pull the levers in the following order:

9, 12, 2, 9, 4, 6, 1, 10

If you’re having a hard time following our instructions on which lever should have which number, watch the embedded video from the PS4Trophies YouTube channel. He gives you a diagram to help you map out the lever numbers, and you can see where he’s standing for context. This should make things easy and help you unlock the Shadow Theater trophy in the process.

Now that you’ve solved the Shadow Puzzle you should browse through our Uncharted: The Lost Legacy guide. It contains the solutions to all the puzzles, locations of collectibles, and instructions to unlock the various trophies in the game.
