Resident Evil 4 Mausoleum Lantern Puzzle Solution

Please note: The puzzle solution below is only confirmed for Assisted and Standard difficulties, as we have not been able to verify the solution on Extreme and Professional. However, you should follow the same logic if there is a difference in the exact solution.

To solve the lantern puzzle in the Mausoleum as Ashley, you must swap all three lanterns to match the light pattern in front of them. You will need to use the flashlight that was originally in Ashley’s hand, along with the two incorrectly placed flashlights in the Mausoleum.

Here’s exactly how to solve the Mausoleum Lantern puzzle in Resident Evil 4:

  • Place the full moon lantern already in Ashley’s hand on the middle pedestal.
  • Place the crescent moon lantern you picked up from the middle pedestal on the left pedestal.
  • Place the Mausoleum Lantern puzzle collected from the left pedestal on the right pedestal.

This is how it should be: crescent moon, full moon, then the star lantern if you look from left to right from the entrance.

Our Resident Evil 4 walkthrough can help you through the village with guides on the Big and Little Cave Shrine puzzle solutions, the Church dial puzzle, and the Del Lago, El Gigante, and Mendez bosses. When you reach the castle, you’ll need to tackle the correct timing puzzles of the Treasure Sword, the Four Slotted Wall, the Dining Room Bell, and the Grandfather Clock, along with the Garrador Dungeon, Two Giants, and Ramon Salazar’s bosses. The island is next, and there are still puzzles with calibration puzzles, keycard locations, and a hidden wrench, along with final bosses Krauser and Sadler.

Once all the lanterns are placed correctly, the structure in the middle of the Mausoleum will open and you will be able to collect the Salazar Family Badge inside.

Be prepared to flee quickly, however, as more Las Plagas knights will come to life when you collect the crest.
