This article will guide you through the objective “Rescue Leon” of Chapter 9 of the game Resident Evil 4 Remake which is released on 24 March 2023.

Rescue Leon

You’ll be required to play as Ashley as you make your way forward to find a way to get Leon out of where he got locked in. To unlock the path in the wall, retrieve the lantern from the pedestal and proceed along the pathway until you arrive at the Library. You will find a Grand Clock on the way that you unlock.

In the library head in the south to find another pedestal #2. Place the lantern on it to shift the bookshelves.

Operating the crank will bring down a flight of stairs.

Retrace your steps and retrieve the lantern to shift the bookshelves back to its previous position and climb the stairs. A set of keys can be found on the table.

Head back down the stairs and make your way to the elevator located on the northern side of the library. Be mindful of the armor enemies that may be wandering about. Utilize the third key to unlock the door and then activate it.

After reaching the upper part of the library and having a brief conversation with Leon, proceed to the back of the room and inspect the note on the table.

The note on the table will display different times depending on the game difficulty: 11:04 on Assisted/Standard difficulty and 7:00 on Hardcore/Professional difficulty. Once you’ve read the note, return to grand clock #2 and adjust the hands to match the displayed time. This will unlock the door, and all you need to do is change the clock hands to the correct time.

Retrace your steps through the library on the same route you took when you picked up lantern #1 and head towards Grand clock #1.

Adjust the hands to match the displayed time depending on the game difficulty: 11:04 on Assisted/Standard difficulty and 7:00 on Hardcore/Professional difficulty. 

By doing this, an underground route will become accessible. Proceed along the route and use the elevator to descend.

As you enter the following chamber, you’ll find yourself in a mausoleum. The area has four symbols that can be activated by pulling their respective chains.

It’s important to note that once activated, the armor in the room will come alive and start coming after you. The symbols are located in each of the four corners of the chamber.

Proceed along the path from the Mausoleum until you encounter a puzzle involving lamps. The objective is to position each lamp onto the correct pedestal, with each one casting a unique shape onto the wall. To solve the puzzle, you can easily exchange the lamp in your possession with those on the pedestals and move them as needed.

Begin by swapping the lamp you’re currently holding (full moon) with the one at the rear of the room. Then, relocate the crescent moon lamp to the left and the star lamp to the right. This will unlock the central area, allowing you to retrieve the Salazar Family Insignia.

Retrace your steps to where you last encountered Leon, and continue to run towards the Mausoleum. From there, make your way back to the library and ascend to the upper level using the elevator (or the stairs on the eastern side of the library)

Once you reach the designated location, insert the Salazar Family Insignia into the appropriate slot in the wall to bring the chapter to a close.
