Resident Evil 4 Blue Dial location

To get started with the puzzle in the church, you have to find the Blue Dial first. Thankfully, the church is tiny, so it won't take long to find.

The Blue Dial is located in a cupboard on the right-hand side of the church, near some barrels you can smash.

Our Resident Evil 4 walkthrough can help you through the village with guides on the Large and Small Cave Shrine puzzle solutions, the Church dial puzzle, and Del Lago, El Gigante, and Méndez bosses. When you reach the castle, you have to tackle the Treasury sword, Wall With Four Slots, Dining Hall bell, and Grandfather Clock correct time puzzles, along with the Dungeon Garrador, two giants, and Ramón Salazar bosses. The island is up next, and there's still brain teasers with callibration puzzles, keycard locations, and a hidden wrench, along with final bosses Krauser and Sadler.

Resident Evil 4 church puzzle solution

To start the church puzzle, press the switch to the left of the altar, then insert the Blue Dial beside the red and green dials that just appeared.

You can now rotate each colour of the Las Plagas picture by selecting the corresponding dial. Your goal is to rotate these different colours like their own separate jigsaw pieces and fit them around the Las Plagas symbol.

The best way to solve the church puzzle is to look at the middle when rotating each dial. It's far easier to see where a colour slots beside the Las Plagas symbol this way.

Keep an eye on this section of the puzzle when turning the dials.

Keep rotating a colour until you see it fits in perfectly with the symbol in the middle, then move onto the next dial.
