It might prevent you from getting stuck and using our guide. Here are a few more quick tips before you begin. We have broken down our Witness walkthrough guide into separate s, to make a bit easier. There is one puzzle perand most of these puzzles result in the activation one of the light beams on the island upon completion. If you are looking for a specific puzzle, we have listed the puzzle name and corresponding in the links below.
We've also got a complete guide to The Witness Windmill Puzzles. Head over there if you're struggling to figure out what to do.
Most of the puzzles in The Witness have a trophy that pops when you complete that section, or at least that is our experience so far. The first one, however, does not. Here is what you need to do to get through the first section. Move forward to the end and press in the indicated button to interact with this very simple puzzle, drawing a line from left to right.
Press the indicated button to open the door.
Interacting and drawing a line from the bottom right to the top left. This is its way of encouraging you to learn more complex puzzles by figuring out the mechanics of basic ones. Head up the stairs, exit through the door, and immediately turn to your left after walking a few feet forward.

Follow the path until you move into a building that is in the back left corner of the complex from where you entered. You want to begin by first activating the wire on the bottom right, which you can do using the solutions in the image below. Leave the top right wire alone for now. You will also notice that the bottom panel to the right of the gate is open.
To activate the middle wire, follow it from this panel to the room in the back right of the complex from where you entered this area through the door at the top of the stairs.
You can find that puzzle solution below. The final wire is controlled by several puzzles, each one activating a wire that le to another. You can view the puzzles you need to solve, and the solutions to each, below. You will now be able to solve the puzzle at the gate itself, which is quite simple to do.
With the gate open, return to the very first puzzle that we helped you solve, in the back left corner of the complex from where you entered the area through the door at the top of the stairs. You now need to do the puzzle again, this time activating the top wire. Exit the complex through the now opened gate.
Turn to your left and hug the wall, going up the hill and to the wall that overlooked the complex you were just in. Follow the wall counter-clockwise until you reach a platform that hangs over the main path. Under some pillows will be an audio log that you should pick up. Backtrack out of the complex the same way you just entered, turning left again and following the outter wall counter-clockwise as it surrounds the complex. This will take you through an open gate.

If the gate is closed, the first puzzle you solved is done incorrectly. The wire should be lit up. When you reach a locked door with a puzzle on it, below is how you solve it.
Through that door and directly on your right will be another puzzle that must be solved. To leave this area, look for another door with a puzzle that must be solved. Turn right, keeping an eye out for the bunker door on your left. Solve the puzzle on it to get inside.
Inside this door will be a box. At the back is a very simple puzzle to open it. Do so, and then memorize the image that you see when looking inside the box. This will be the final puzzle for this section. Sometimes we include links to online retail stores.
If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. We show you where to find the new Temtem Reserve, and how to catch rare and Luma Temtem there. A look back on what we tried to accomplish at USgamer, and the work still to be done. It's time for us to move on, but we'll carry USG with us wherever we go. This makes traveling a little faster. When in doubt, follow the wires.
You often have to activate the next puzzle by solving the one before it.
Use your surroundings to get some hints. The solution could be in the reflection of the light, or a broken branch on a tree behind the puzzle. Take a break.
If you're stuck, walk away from the game for 10 minutes, get a drink, and then return with a fresh mind and set of eyes. Spend less time blindly spamming answers to the puzzles, and more time thinking about how the mechanics behind it work. Figure that out, and you're set to go.
