# Scorn: how to solve the light puzzles in act 3

contempt is a difficult game in almost every way. Not only will it test your bravery as you try to navigate the haunting environments, but it will often block your progress with cryptic puzzles. Each act in the game has a main puzzle or two, but just like the world around you, there’s very little explanation as to what you’re even supposed to be doing.

The biggest hurdle you will face contempt‘s third act consists of two bizarre light puzzles. These are perhaps the most challenging puzzles the game will throw at you, largely due to the fact that it’s so blunt about what it asks of you. If you’ve been staring at this weird, fleshy contraption of lights and orbs for too long, here’s how to solve the light puzzles contempt act 3

## How to solve the first easy puzzle

Before we get into the riddle’s solutions, we need to figure out what the heck we’re even trying to do. Your goal in these puzzles is to light up all the inner circles. Sounds simple, but each light you activate turns others either on or off. In addition, you also need to consider how the lights rotate, as some are interconnected. In the end, you need to have the right lights on before turning them in place.

Step 1: Select the middle dial so that the connector is pointing to the top right and the top two nodes are not connected.

Step 2: Twist the left node until it glows.

Step 3: Rotate the middle bar so long that it now points to the top left node.

Step 4: Twist the right node until it glows.

Step 5: Put the middle bar back to the top right.

Step 6: Twist the top right knot four times.

Step 7: Switch the middle bar back to the top left node.

Step 8: Twist the top right node until it lights up again.

Step 9: Rotate the middle bar so it’s pointing straight down.

## How to solve the second light puzzle

The second light puzzle works the same as the first, only this one has more bars and nodes than the first. How to solve it:

Step 1: Rotate the bottom center bar up.

Step 2: Twist the left node until it glows.

Step 3: Rotate the top middle node until the middle node and top node are glowing.

Step 4: Point the bottom middle bar to the right.

Step 5: Twist the right knot five times.

Step 6: Move the bottom middle bar straight up.

Step 7: Twist the right node until it glows.

Step 8: Rotate the bottom center bar straight down.

If at any point you screw up a step in any of the puzzles, restart the checkpoint to reset it to the default layout and start again.
