Uncharted 4 Chapter 9 puzzle solution

During Uncharted 4 Chapter 9, you and Sam encounter an odd circular machine. This device is covered in circular dials and contains three crosses and a water bucket. You can get the Trials and Tribulations trophy if you meet the achievement’s requirements: Solve the first trail in Scotland in 10 moves or less.

You can use this short video from ThrillUK on YouTube for hints or follow our simple puzzle solution walkthrough below.

When you first encounter the device, grab the bucket at the bottom and fill it with water. You can find a small area below you with water by turning away from the contraption and dropping down to an area to the left side of the room.

Return the bucket to the bottom of the contraption. From here you’ll need to rotate the four wheels as directed below to get the Trials and Tribulations trophy.

  1. Rotate the second wheel once to the left
  2. Rotate the third wheel twice to the left
