The Treasury Sword Puzzle in Resident Evil 4 Remake is found in the castle during Chapter 7. It can be one of the harder puzzles to solve in the game if you don’t know what to look for. Involving four murals and four related blades, you’ll have to know where each sword goes to tell the proper story. Once you do, you’ll open the gate and the path beyond the Treasury.

While traversing the castle, you’ll come to a locked path next to four stone murals in the Treasury. To solve this puzzle and open the path, you’ll need to place 4 replica swords in the correct positions on the nearby murals.

Treasury Puzzle Sword Locations

Three of the murals/paintings already have swords, but they’re in the wrong positions. Take those off the murals. 

The fourth is behind the large gate to the left. To open that, ring the gong with a rope near the gate to illuminate the stag. Then shoot two of the gongs behind the gate: one with a bird and one with a snake. Grab the sword from inside when the gate opens. 

Where to Put Each Sword to Solve the Puzzle

Now go back to the murals and look at the pictures to decide which sword belongs where. They each tell a story. From left to right, place the swords in this order:

  • Iron Sword: The mural of a proud knight.
  • Golden Sword: The mural of the Squire being knighted.
  • Bloody Sword: The third mural, which signifies struggle and battle.
  • Rusty Sword: The fourth mural, signifying death and age. 

After putting the last blade in place, the small gate opens and lets you go deeper into the castle.

And that’s how to solve the Tresury Sword Puzzle in RE4 Remake. If you’re looking for more information on Resident Evil 4 Remake, like how to get the Capacity Compliance trophy/achievement, or how to unlock all accessories, click those links or check out our dedicated page.
