Exploring has always been very enjoyable in the Tomb Raider series. Shadow of the Tomb Raider did no less than provide us with that experience. If you have been exploring the Hidden City, you will come across the Temple of the Sun challenge tomb. At first, it was a bit confusing to complete the puzzle so here is the Temple of the Sun guide to help you get the Hoatzin’s Hunger reward skill.
Solving the light puzzle
Upon reaching the room, you will notice four mirrors with light shining on them. You will need to shift these mirror to solve the puzzle. Solving this will require you to go back and forward between mirrors. To make things easier, let’s map out the mirrors according to the image below.
Now we start off with the first mirror. Rotate the mirror towards the beam on the left between the first and second mirror. By doing so, the beam will rotate for you to cross towards the second mirror.
This part you will need to look closely as you will need to rotate the second mirror towards the beam in front of the third mirror. The light bouncing from the second mirror will go directly below the center platform.
Head back to the first mirror and now adjust it towards the right side so that the beams align for you to cross onto the third mirror.
Make your way to the third mirror and rotate the mirror to the left facing the beam closest to you.
Now go back to the first mirror and adjust it again so that we can cross towards the second mirror. Cross to the second mirror and rotate it to the beam on the right – the one in between the first and second mirror.
Go back to the first mirror yet again. This time move the mirror towards the beam closest to the fourth mirror. This will go across the room going right between the center platform.
Head back to the second mirror, now rotate it to face the beam which is facing the fourth mirror. This will make it possible for you to cross towards the fourth mirror. When you have reached the fourth mirror, just face it towards the beam nearest to the reward. Technically you are done with the puzzle. Just make your way to the center platform and jump on the beams to reach the reward.
It was a tedious puzzle yet satisfying to do – hopefully, this Temple of the Sun guide has been helpful.
