There are a lot of aspects to learn from the mechanics of A Plague Tale: Requiem and these are seen heavily within the game’s numerous puzzles.

This article will inform you of how to solve the Planet Bell puzzle in Chapter Two of A Plague Tale: Requiem.

Solving the Planet Alignment Bell Puzzle in Chapter II of A Plague Tale: Requiem

To solve the Planet Alignment Bell Puzzle in A Plague Tale: Requiem, there is a specific pattern that you have to arrange. The order of symbols should correspond to the following planets from left to right: Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, and then Mercury. The biggest issue that you may encounter with this puzzle is how to turn the bells, and determine which symbols relate to what planet. In order to turn the bells, fire your slingshot at either the left or right side of the bell to turn it in that direction. The symbols on the other hand should line up left to right as shown in the images below.



Planet Alignment Bell Puzzle Symbols, Explained

  • Jupiter — Jupiter’s symbol looks a bit like a 3 but is indicated by Lucas as being akin to a Z.
  • Mars — The Mars symbol is simply a circle with a line going through it.
  • Sun — The Sun does not have a bell symbol as the Sun is just simply always in the center of the room.
  • Venus — For Venus, you will be looking for a circle with a line directly underneath it.
  • Mercury — This will have a symbol that has another circle but this time with two twin snake-like lines at the top. It will also have a staff shape line running underneath.
