Locating The Puzzle Pieces

After taking a look at the Hexagon puzzle, you’ll quickly notice some of its pieces missing on the pedestal. You’ll have to find the remaining 3 Hexagon pieces and insert them into the pedestal one by one. Fortunately, most of the pieces aren’t too far away from the pedestal, so you won’t have to take long trips fetching each piece.

A Piece

Starting off with the closest shard, you’ll find the Hexagon Piece A beside the Merchant just before the pier with the Hexagon Puzzle pedestal.

  • Upon reaching the Merchant’s Hideout by passing through the Quarry, you’ll find a small wooden chest next to the staircase located opposite of him.
  • Simply open the chest, and you’ll collect the first piece of the puzzle.

B Piece

The second piece of the Hexagon puzzle is located at the deep western edge of RE4: Remake’s Fish Farm near the house, where also you’ll find the Boat Fuel.

  • After collecting the first piece, head up the staircase and go outside to the pier.
  • From here, follow the walkway and take the first exit to reach the Fish Farm.

  • Once you’re at the Farm, continue following the walkway and drop down to the canal, heading straight ahead afterwards to resurface to the pier.
  • Now, take a right turn and go back into the shallow waters, running past or eliminating the Ganados in your way.
  • Take a sharp right after entering the canal again and reclimb to the dock, progressing through the narrow path ahead.

  • Finally, as you reach the barricade at the end of the path, jump back down from your left and go through the opening behind you.
  • You’ll see the chest with the Hexagon Piece B and a Blue Medallion beside it that you can shoot down as part of the Merchant’s Request.

C Piece

After getting the Boat Fuel as well as the second Hexagon Piece from the Fish Farm, you’ll need to come back to the main dock and start the boat. Here, as you cross the Lake, you’ll immediately encounter Del Lago, the giant fish mutant.

Killing this behemoth will lead you directly to Chapter 4 as well as let you freely roam around the Lake. After making it to this chapter, you can now use the boat to traverse the body of water and obtain the final piece for the Hexagon Puzzle in Resident Evil 4: Remake.

  • From the boat house, jump onto your boat and follow the map to the northeastern edge of the lake.
  • Once you reach the edge, head inside the narrow cave entrance illuminated by the torch outside and make your way through to the Small Cave Shrine.

  • Climb onto the boardwalk and go inside the shrine, where you’ll see a locked door that can only be opened by solving the Stone Dais Puzzle next to it.

  • After looking around the tomb and discovering clues, it’s clear that you’ll solve the puzzle by pressing the bottom-right, bottom-left, and leftmost tablets on the Dais.

Important: Remember to grab the Blasphemer’s Head before you leave the shrine to progress through the main game.

Readjusting The Pieces And Completing The Puzzle

Now that you’ve collected all the pieces head back to the Hexagon Puzzle’s pedestal on the dock. Insert the pieces individually into the puzzle, and you’ll end up with a jumbled image. For the last step, you’ll need to readjust the pieces to make the correctly organized image and complete the puzzle.

Since the Hexagons rotate in trios, it might be tricky to understand how the puzzle functions at first. Fortunately, you only need 2 moves to easily organize the pieces. Simply rotate the leftmost trio once and rotate the uppermost trio right after to completely solve the Hexagon Puzzle.

Upon completion, you’ll receive the Depraved Idol from the pedestal – a Treasure item that you can sell for 15000 Pesatos. You can now give the idol to the Merchant in his Hideout close to you and collect your hefty reward.

My Experience Solving The Hexagon Puzzle

Resident Evil 4 Remake has several intriguing puzzles, and after playing the title for over 19 hours and beating it twice on Professional mode, the Hexagon Puzzle is one of the most erratic puzzles in-game. On my first playthrough, I was able to solve it within 2 moves using the aforementioned steps. However, when I attempted it again on my second run, it took me almost 5 minutes to get it right.

In my experience, the puzzle’s difficulty fell solely on how it’s initially arranged, and since that’s a random setup in each playthrough, your experience will always vary. Fortunately, one thing consistent here was the Depraved Idol I got, which I always immediately sold to upgrade my TMP, as there was no point in keeping the idol since I couldn’t inlay any gemstones to increase its value.
