The Lost Legacy Shadow Puzzle (Shadow Theater Trophy)

In Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, treasure hunters are often keen to tackle objectives head-on in a fury of lead-slinging and blood-spilling action. After all, playable protagonist Chloe Frazer can wield all kinds of destructive weaponry that come in the game's vast armory of machine guns, rocket launchers, plus explosives. That said, some situations in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy call for a delicate touch and contemplation, such as the infamous Shadow Puzzle that has left many players stumped.

For the uninitiated, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is the acclaimed stand-alone spin-off of the fourth entry in the franchise. Despite being a more bite-sized version of titles in the mainline series, the narrative of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is still fortunately loaded with many iconic franchise tropes that fans love, such as gut-wrenching betrayals to gut-busting quips. However, this also means that complex puzzles stand in the way of players that have to beat to reach new areas and chapters of the story.

How to Start The Shadow Puzzle in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

As mentioned above, the Shadow Puzzle is one such complex challenge that leads players to new areas of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Although, players new to the game will have to progress all the way to Chapter 5 then reach the section where Chloe Frazer and renowned Uncharted 4 mercenary Nadine Ross enter a cavern with a series of highlighted cave paintings on the walls.

How To Solve The Shadow Puzzle in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Players who have not experienced the story and gameplay of The Lost Legacy may have a hard time trying to crack the luminous-based puzzle. Especially since this is the first puzzle in the game that requires players to move objects to create shadows and match paintings on walls. With that said, the solution to the Shadow Puzzle is actually much easier than it looks.

In short, the brooding yet endearing protagonist Chloe Frazer must align the shadows with the images on the walls to proceed. Shiva, the axe, and Parashurama are the pictures on the left. Parashurama, Ganesh's severed tusk, and Ganesh are on the right. To manipulate the shadows, Chloe can crank the handles on the machine in the center of the room to twirl the metal puppets. Once the shadows mask the images, the large door blocking the exit will now unlock.

How To Unlock The Shadow Theater Trophy in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

To unlock the Shadow Theater trophy, players must solve the puzzle in ten moves or less. This means that each action must be efficient and effective to meet the restricted requirements. Nevertheless, here's how to do just that in just eight moves.

  1. From where Chloe enters the cavern, beside the crank, players must head to the right-hand set of switches and pull the left-hand lever.
  2. Now, the player has to move to the next set of three switches on the left and pull the middle switch.
  3. Move left to the next set of switches and pull the right switch of this group.
  4. Head left again to the next set of switches and pull the left-hand one.
  5. Move left to the next set and pull the right-hand switch.
  6. Head back to the set of switches on Chloe's right, and pull the right-hand one.
  7. Head to the next set of switches on Chloe's left again and pull the left-hand switch.
  8. Finally, head back to the set of switches to the left and pull the left-hand switch.

With that done, the infamous Naughty Dog puzzle is now complete within ten moves, which will unlock the Shadow Theater trophy. Better yet, the way forward through the rest of the chapter is further unsealed, allowing Chloe and Nadine to get into some gun-blazing action.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is available now on PS4 and PS5.
