The Mistbury Catacombs in Enshrouded contain a reward for the player at its end, but this reward is hidden behind a door that can only be opened by solving a puzzle.

A part of the Queen’s Tomb quest line, The Mistbury Catacombs puzzle can be a bit tricky to solve. The puzzle is a bit lengthy and it’s very easy to get lost and lose track of where you need to go.

Luckily for you, our guide will look at a detailed look at the puzzle and help you solve it step by step.

Mistbury Catacombs Puzzle Guide

what you see once you enter the Mistbury Catacombs

Once you enter the Mistbury Catacombs, you will be able to see the main locked door you want open in front of you. To open this door though, you will need to activate 4 buttons that act as switches for the main door. Once all 4 buttons have been activated, the door will automatically open.

Button #1

where to go to from the bridge for the 1st button

To get to the first button, you need to take the first right on the bridge that leads to the main locked door. Once there you will see a metal gate in front of you.

The metal gate leads straight to the button but it can’t be opened, so we will need to find another way to get there. To the left of the closed metal gate, you will find a ledge, marked in the image above.

You can drop down from this ledge and reach the lower level of the Catacombs. The lower level of the Catacombs will require you to be in the shroud. having consumables or upgrades that boost your time in the shroud can be useful when enshrouded.

door you need to destroy or open once you drop down

Upon dropping down from the ledge, you will see a wooden gate in front of you. You can open this gate using lockpicks, or by just breaking it down using your axe. We recommend you just use your axe, as you will need lockpicks later on in the puzzle.

On the other side of the door, you will find a room where there appears to be nowhere to go. To go further, you will need to destroy the obstacle marked in the image above. You can destroy this with either your axe or some sort of explosive.

After destroying the obstacle, you need to keep going and climb up a ledge. Once you climb up you will find another place which appears to be a dead end.

Over here you will need to find your way again by destroying an obstacle. This time though there is an explosive that you can find there. Shoot the explosive to open a path.

After that, you will just follow the path and get to the first button.

Button #2

platform you need to go to for the 2nd button

Once you activate the first button, the previously locked metal gate leading to the button will now be open. Go through this door and you will see a platform. This platform is marked in the image above.

You can make your way to this platform using your Grappling Hook.

Once on the platform, you will be able to see the second button in front of you. To activate this button you will need a ranged weapon like the bow and arrow. Shoot at the button and it will be activated.

Button #3

You will once again need to go to the lower level of the catacombs to activate the third button. This time though, you won’t have to be in the shroud for very long.

where to go from the bridge to activate the 3rd button

The simplest way to get there is to go back to the entrance of the catacombs. From there go back down towards the bridge that leads to the main locked door. This time you will take the first left. This way will lead you directly to the lower level of the catacombs.

3rd button

The way to this button is very straightforward, as the path down here leads you straight to the button. Once you activate this button, go back the same way you came from.

Button #4

where to go from the bridge to activate the 4th button

For the fourth button, you will once again go back to the entrance of the catacombs and go to the bridge that leads to the main door. Ignoring the first 2 paths, you will this time go the second path to your left. The image above indicates where you need to go.

the metal gate that needs to be opened using a lockpick

In front of you, there will be a metal gate that is locked. Unlike the first metal gate we encountered when trying to get to the first button, this gate can be opened. To open this metal gate you will need a lockpick.

After opening the gate, go straight to your left and climb up to the platform above.

grappling hook area that leads to the 4th button

From this platform, you will be able to see the last button in front of you. You will not be able to use your bow and arrow to shoot this button. To get to the button, you can just use your Grappling Hook again.

4th button

Like the other 3 buttons, you can just go up to the button and activate it.

Claim Your Reward

the main gate now open after activating all buttons

Now that all 4 buttons have been activated, the main locked door will now be open. Make your way back to the bridge and claim your reward on the other side of the main door that just opened.
