How do I solve the Remnant 2 plinth puzzle? This fiendishly difficult puzzle can be found in The Lament, an optional area that branches off from the Faithless Thicket in Yaesha. This aptly named side dungeon is filled with deadly traps, ceremonial sarcophagi, and plenty of loot for you and your co-op partners to kit yourselves out with along the way.

However, your progress through to The Lament’s inner sanctum is barred by the Remnant 2 plinth puzzle. This mechanical cypher consists of four concentric circles adorned with various symbols. These symbols correspond to those that appear above the mummified remains of the Pan, laid to rest on the rows of stone altars that appear on both the upper and lower floor. Your Remnant 2 weapons and mods won’t be of much use here, but never fear  we’ve got the solution to this tricky puzzle.
