How to cross the construction site in A Plague Tale Requiem Chapter 5
The first step to crossing the construction site in A Plague Tale Requiem is to throw an Ignifier at the bale of hay hanging below the first set of stairs, then run and scale the opposite wooden wall marked in white at the top.
If you don’t have the resources to do this, turn around and open the small chest to find x1 Alcohol and x1 Sulfur needed to create an Ignifer.
Interact with the crank on this platform to turn over the hanging bale of hay. Lucas will then offer his services to turn the crank, so instruct him to first interact with the crank and then when he turns it all the way, throw an Ignifer at the bale of hay.
You can now run up the next flight of stairs, but make sure you have an Ignifer Pot first, as you need to throw one at the bottom of the next flight of stairs to completely clear the path. If you need resources to create one, check out the two boxes on this platform.
You must throw an Ignifer Pot to completely clear the path of rats and then run!
To get Lucas to you, turn the crank on this platform, which will move another bale of hay towards Lucas, who will turn it on himself and cross.
To get Amicia to the next platform, tell Lucas to turn the crank, and when it turns all the way again, throw an Ignifer, tell Lucas to stop, and then follow the lighted hay bale towards a small stone wall.
Amicia will find herself surrounded by rats, but Lucas throws an object to help her. He presses the button that appears on the screen when this happens to activate a pyrite and move towards the stairs in front of you.
In order for Lucas to meet Amicia again, Amicia must first move to another platform. To do this, interact with the crank on the platform you are currently on to move the hale bundle around. Release the crank and as the hay bale moves back, light it with Ignifer, run down the stairs and follow the lighted hay bale to climb the small wooden wall with white on top that leads to the next platform.
At the top of the platform, grab a stick from the pile in front of you and throw it at Lucas. He will head to the platform where Amicia was previously standing. To reunite the pair again, you must throw a rock with your sling at the part of the platform Daffy is standing on and then light the bale of hay in front of both of you.
This allows Lucas and Amicia to cross to the next platform by climbing the small wooden wall with white on top. However, if you’re quick, you can look to the left of the illuminated hay bale and search a chest under the platform Lucas was on to get x1 Tool, x1 Brimstone, and x10 Crafting Pieces.
The last thing you have to do to cross the construction site in A Plague Tale: Requiem is pick up a stick from the pile next to the workbench, light it in the nearby brazier, and then turn left at the bottom of the steps to another brazier.
Drop the stick if it’s still lit when you reach the next brazier, then interact with the debris blocking the entrance to the boathouse to move it.
It’s not over yet though, as you’ll have to clear a path for the ship before you can reach it.
How to clear a path for the ship in A Plague Tale Requiem Chapter 5
To clear a path for the ship in Chapter 5 of A Plague Tale: Requiem, you must instruct Lucas to push the cart back and then enter the hole hidden behind it. Remove the corpse blocking the ferry at the end of this path under the boathouse, then board the ferry.
Tell Lucas to release the crank that controls the ferry when Amicia is on it to reach the other boathouse. You need to check the place for resources, but to move forward and clear a path for the boat, you’ll need to use a rock from your sling on the large structure sticking out in the middle of the boathouse roof.
The ship can now move forward freely, but Amicia and Lucas must figure out how to get to the ship once again.
How to get to the ship in A Plague Tale Requiem Chapter 5
Before trying to get to the boat, we recommend turning around and entering a crawlspace under the second boathouse, as there is a chest containing x1 tool, x10 pieces, and x1 sulfur on the other side.
After opening the chest, go back and follow the pebble path until you reach a wooden bridge. Explore the left side to locate a cart that you can move towards the wall with white on top.
Get on the cart and go down to the next section, then use the rotating lever to take your wooden platform to the part of the bridge you just came from. Drop the level, then use a rock with your sling to lower a path back to the first part of the bridge.
Roll the same cart you used before onto the wooden platform you moved with the rotating lever, then return to the second part of the bridge and use the lever again to bring the platform and cart back to you.
Push the cart towards the next wooden wall with white on it and climb up to trigger a short cutscene where Amicia finally reaches the boat.
Good luck with the rest of Chapter 5!
