Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Flawless Gauntlet trophy guide

One of the trickier puzzles in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is Flawless Gauntlet. In order to unlock it, you will have to get through all three trials of the Axe Fort without resetting any of the boards.


The Axe Fortress is located in the Middle Northern part of the Western Ghats. You can enter either from the eastern or southern sides through the underpasses.

From there, drive up on the pathway behind the waterfall to find the entrance of the fortress. Use the winch from the front of your jeep to break down the steel doors.

From there, you follow the linear path as you will pass through the swimming and climbing gear tutorial sections until you reach an enemy encounter. Pass this combat area is the first of three trails at the Axe Fort.

Solving the Puzzle

You can start the Axe Fortress trails by first activating the crank and then steeping on the step-stone in front of a small gate next to it. Doing so will bring up different boards that you can jump on as well as activate statues that will attack. Every time you jump to the next board, the statue will also move as well.

As a result, you have to plan out your jumps in order to prevent Chloe from getting hit as the board will reset if she does. Missing a jump and falling down will also reset the boards. The only way to get to the exit is by not get hit and fall down while jumping from board to board.

While you get unlimited retires when the board is reset, you won’t be able to earn the Flawless Gauntlet bronze trophy if you failed to get through all three trails without resetting any of the boards.

Instead, we recommend that you restart your checkpoint immediately every time you messed up. The game will auto-save after every trial, so you can use this to your advantage. For even more help in acquiring the Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Flawless Gauntlet trophy, you can also follow our step-by-step guide below.


Before we start, please note that we will be giving out specific directions. Because you can move the camera around freely during the trials, this can end up being a little tricky.  So keep in mind that our directions are based on the starting camera angle in the beginning of the trials where Chloe is facing the exits. So, make sure to position the camera to the exit every time before you jump to the next board so that you won’t be disoriented.
