In this Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Chapter 11 puzzle solution guide and walkthrough, we’ll explain how to decipher the secret of the Founders wheel and this puzzle’s associated paintings. This guide will show you how to determine how each square on the Founders wheel needs to be rotated based on several paintings found nearby.

Uncharted 4 Chapter 11 puzzle solution

During Uncharted 4 Chapter 11, you enter a room with a giant wheel inside a clocktower. This large object with the word Founders on it requires you to examine several paintings to figure out how to rotate squares with symbols to progress forward.

The solution to each stage of the Founders wheel puzzle requires you to look at paintings to find star patterns hidden on each piece of art. Using the star patterns as a guide, you’ll need to rotate the panels on the Founders wheel so that the patterns you observed line up properly.
