How to get the last sword for Treasury puzzle in Resident Evil 4

There are four swords you need to slot into the correct plaques of various scenes featuring a knight in the Treasury. However, you can't solve the sword puzzle in the Treasury until you get the last one, the Bloodied Sword.

To get the Bloodied Sword, you need to light-up the correct symbols by pulling the chain or shooting the symbols. The required symbols are displayed on the gate itself.

The correct symbols to open the gate are:

  • Stag
  • Snake
  • Bird

The stag symbol is actually outside the gate, so you can pull the chain under it to activate its flame.

The snake symbol is in the back, to the right inside the locked gate. You need to shoot it to activate the flame.

Lastly, the bird symbol is at the front, to the right inside the locked gate. You also have to shoot it to turn the flame on.

Once you activate the correct three symbols, the gate will open and you can pick up the Bloodied Sword from the statue in the middle of the room.


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.
