Senua in Freyslaug Hellblade 2

The first big puzzle in Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 tasks you with opening a gate in Freyslaug so you can find out what happened. So, here is how to complete the village puzzle in Hellblade 2.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 follows a similar gameplay loop to the first game. You have to solve intricate puzzles at multiple locations, and the first longer puzzle is found in the slaver’s village. 

So, here’s how to solve the puzzle in the village, including how to find all the symbols and get through the gate. 

Where to find all symbols in the Hellblade 2 village puzzle

The village puzzle in Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 tasks you with finding three different parts of one symbol so you can pass through the gate to the Draugar Ceremony. Here is where to find them all: 

Symbol 1

The backward ‘K’ symbol can be found on the balcony of a house near the gate.

Once you have focused on the symbol on the gate, turn left and walk around a broken-down house. Once you reach the back, you should see a hole in the wall. 

Go inside and look for a ladder, then climb up the ladder. Head back outside onto the small balcony, look left, and line up the backward ‘K’ shape in the blood on the wooden spokes sticking out of the ground. Use E or LT to Focus on it, and you’ll lock it in.

Symbol 2

The second symbol can be found on the main path in the village.

The second symbol can be found along the main path in the village. If you’re coming back from the first symbol, head back to the gate where the main symbol is and back down the path. 

The cross-like symbol should be above the pile of bodies, also in blood on spokes on the ground. Position yourself to get it lined up, and Focus on it to lock it in. 

Symbol 3

The third symbol in Hellblade 2 village puzzle
The last symbol can be found by taking a back route around the village.

The third and final symbol takes a bit of an alternate route to find. Firstly, look for the second house on the right along the main path of the village. Turn around directly after finding the second symbol and should see it. 

Step by step, here is where to go: 

  1. Approach the wooden door and press interact to open it.
  2. Walk through the house and to the back. 
  3. Turn left immediately and walk up the small hill toward a second house.
  4. Go inside the second house and through a hole on the right.
  5. Turn right and walk along the path until you can’t anymore.
  6. To your right at the end of the path is a ledge you can jump off
  7. Continue following the path.
  8. When you reach the end, look right across the first house’s back area and find the last symbol.

Enter this house to get to the back area where you can find the last symbol.

This K-like symbol can also be seen in blood which covers wooden spokes on the ground. Once you have the symbol, you can jump down a ledge at the end of the path and find yourself back in the yard of the first house. 

Once you have all three symbols, head back to the main gate and Focus on it. Play through the flashback sequence where you find the mirror, and you’ll be able to go through the gate and up to the Draugar ceremony.
