There’s more than just slobbering monsters and evil puppets to fight in Lies of P. You’ll also have to take on some tough puzzles — as you progress through the story, you’ll be able to collect special Treasure Hunt quests from items called Cryptic Vessels. These Cryptic Vessels will give you a clue where to go, but don’t always give you all the details you need. You may need to use specific emotes or equip certain weapons to solve these puzzles. Finding them all will unlock the Veteran Explorer achievement / trophy.
