Today we are going to show you how to solve Cuphead DLC Graveyard puzzle, if you were unable to defeat Cuphead DLC secret boss we got some important tips for you. The first Cuphead was well-known for its numerous Easter eggs and hidden passages.
The Delicious Last Course, the game’s DLC, gives us access to a brand-new island to explore and look for boss encounters. In keeping with the first island, the fourth island also has some secrets to reveal. One of them is a ghost detective-related optional quest. Here’s how to finish The Delicious Last Course’s sidequest puzzle and what occurs once you do.
How to solve Cuphead DLC Graveyard puzzle?
First of all, until you make enough progress, you won’t be able to solve the challenge. Similar to the first game, you cannot access the fourth island unless certain bosses have been eliminated. In this situation, you must make enough progress to open the region including the airplane hangar and the cemetery.
There’s a ghost that can be seen standing next to the cemetery. Speaking with him gives you the information you need to finish The Delicious Last Course’s sidequest problem. The clues are:
- “That contest of skill.”
- “That broken artifact.”
- “This eerie graveyard.”
Now let’s learn how to solve Cuphead DLC Graveyard puzzle below. We’ve explained everything in detail.
The broken artifact
Cuphead DLC Graveyard puzzle starts at Porkrind’s store, visit there. But be sure to carry at least one coin with you. Purchase the “Broken Relic,” an unique Charm item, from Porkrinds. The “broken relic” that the ghost alludes to is this. Porkrind will sell it to you for one shiny penny. If you can’t afford it, you can finish one of The King’s Leap’s challenges for two coins as payment. If you’ve used up all the coins you acquired, turn left and pass the waterfall next to the cemetery. When you reach the top, hold left to reveal a secret coin.
The contest of skill
Go to the three mountain climbers to the right of Porkrind’s shop with the Broken Relic in your possession. You must now solve the “contest of skill” puzzle. The podiums on which the mountaineers are standing, from left to right, indicate second, first, and third place. The following set of hints for resolving the riddle are revealed by speaking with them.
Each person discusses their victory. You may have noticed, though, that each dialogue contains a specific type of direction, such as “up,” “down,” “left,” etc. These instructions are for the cemetery, which is a three-by-three square of gravestones. But be cautious. Instead of just saying “left,” one or more of the climbers might say “left up.” Making this distinction is crucial.
The eerie graveyard
Return to the cemetery once you have all three directions. With the Broken Relic in your possession, you can now trigger the tombstones, which brings about the appearance of a blue ghost. The central gravestone is the only one without a ghost on it. Start with the first-place winner and proceed through the third by following the instructions to activate the tombstones (first-place directions, second-place directions, and third-place directions). Activate the gravestone at the very top right of the cemetery, for instance, if the first climber shouted “up right,” and so on.
You need to interact with three gravestones in a specific order while wearing the Broken Relic. Interact on the middle stone in the top row to start the puzzle-solving process. Next, interact with the stone on the bottom row that is located all the way to the left. Last but not least, engage with the stone in the top row, all the way to the right. The centre stone will emit a beacon of light when the gravestones are pressed in the proper order.
There are three NPCs standing on a platform up near Porkrind’s Emporium for those who are interested in learning where the solution to this problem originated from. You will receive an indication about the location of each stone from each NPC. Things like up and right or down and left will be mentioned. Therefore, if you are inquisitive, you can talk to them to find out what they have to say, although doing so is not necessary to solve the problem using the aforementioned solutions.
If you complete the task correctly, the third ghost will rejoice and a blue light shaft will appear on the central tombstone. A notification asking if you want to take a nap will appear when you activate the central tombstone. Agree, and then get ready. The prize might not be to your taste.
Cuphead DLC secret boss
After solving the Cuphead DLC Graveyard puzzle, you can access Cuphead DLC secret boss battle. It’s likely to be the game’s toughest battle. However, the Broken Relic becomes the Cursed Relic once you’ve triumphed. Each boss battle becomes more difficult when it is equipped as a Charm. Congrats! You begin every battle with 1 health, and parries slowly increase your super attack meter. Every time you let off of the fire button or dash, your weapon will change as well.
As far as we can see, using the Relic to defeat a boss does not grant you any further benefits. With the Relic and on the hardest setting, we managed to defeat one, but nothing changed. It appears to be there only to appease Cuphead fanatics who are the most deranged. This way you’ve learned how to solve Cuphead DLC Graveyard puzzle.
